Senior Missionary Conference in Guam

Every 6 months all the Senior Couples in the mission meet together in Guam for training and learning from one another and also our Mission President and Sister Mecham.  
The Group hard at work. Sometimes leaving your family and going on a mission feels like a huge sacrifice, one couple said “Good people have replaced our parenting functions well since we have been out". No senior missionary finds it convenient to leave home.  The sacrifices associated with serving the Lord full time abundantly bless the couples, their families, and the people they serve.”
~ Half of the Group hard at Play ~ 
Spending a little down time with one another is another great blessing.  Eating fresh fruits and vegetables is also something we all really enjoy because we don't get much of that on our islands.  
~ The other half, still at play ~

As missionaries among the “special witnesses of the name of Christ in all the world,” We declare that He is the Son of the living God, our atoning Savior and Redeemer. This is His Church, restored in these latter days to fulfill its divine destiny. His prophet today is President Thomas S. Monson
