A New Year--2009

Interviews were held at the first of January. It was great to see the missionaries again after a slight break for Christmas. Our new Area Medical Advisor, Dr. Ed Spencer, and his wife, Cindy, accompanied us as we visited four of the nine zones. They gave advice and counsel about health and met with missionaries who were having specific problems.

Elder Spencer is an outstanding missionary and was able to share a short message about the church to several individuals as we traveled and now the missionaries are teaching them. We enjoyed our time together.

We were delighted to have a call from President Clark's parents who wanted to come down for a visit. They spent a week with us in January and were relieved to be free of the ice and snow that was plaguing them in Southeast Idaho. Here is a photo of them with the Zone Leaders at our council meeting. We all enjoyed the 80 degree weather during their visit.

In our Zone Conferences that started Feb. 3rd, President Clark focused on his vision for the mission. Those who were here when we first arrived had heard it but we have received so many new missionaries since July, it seemed appropriate to present it again.
