Super Mission Leadership Counsel, Yakima

About once every year or so we have a Super MLC, where all of the District Leaders are invited to join the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders at our Mission Leadership Counsel.  Today was the day!

Prep for this meeting starts way in advance.  Here are the supplies that have been gathered to fill the supply orders.  The APs came by last night to load them up and take them over to the church where we met today.  They also set up the tables and chairs and the projection equipment to make sure everything would be in working order this morning.2017-9-4 zzzz p.m (1)2017-9-4 zzzz p.m (2)2017-9-4 zzzz p.m (3)Arriving at the Yakima Englewood building this morning:2017-9-5 Super MLC (1)Yakima Valley is a big bowl of smoke these days.  There are fires burning around us.  The air quality is BAD.  It’s good we were inside today.2017-9-5 Super MLC (2)2017-9-5 Super MLC (3)2017-9-5 Super MLC (4)Here are a few of the brand new companions of some of our District Leaders.  They paired off with other missionaries for the day!  Don’t they look great??2017-9-5 Super MLC (5)And here they all come!2017-9-5 Super MLC (6)2017-9-5 Super MLC (7)2017-9-5 Super MLC (8)2017-9-5 Super MLC (9)The supplies are ready to go out to the zones:2017-9-5 Super MLC (10)2017-9-5 Super MLC (11)Meeting prep with Pres Lewis:2017-9-5 Super MLC (13)2017-9-5 Super MLC (14)2017-9-5 Super MLC (15)2017-9-5 Super MLC (20)2017-9-5 Super MLC (21)2017-9-5 Super MLC (25)Friends reunited!2017-9-5 Super MLC (28)2017-9-5 Super MLC (32)2017-9-5 Super MLC (33)2017-9-5 Super MLC (34)2017-9-5 Super MLC (36)2017-9-5 Super MLC (37)2017-9-5 Super MLC (38)2017-9-5 Super MLC (40)2017-9-5 Super MLC (42)2017-9-5 Super MLC (44)2017-9-5 Super MLC (45)2017-9-5 Super MLC (46)2017-9-5 Super MLC (48)The McKeens!2017-9-5 Super MLC (49)2017-9-5 Super MLC (50)2017-9-5 Super MLC (52)2017-9-5 Super MLC (56)2017-9-5 Super MLC (57)2017-9-5 Super MLC (59)Transfer journals, catching up!2017-9-5 Super MLC (63)2017-9-5 Super MLC (66)2017-9-5 Super MLC (74)2017-9-5 Super MLC (75)Ready to begin:2017-9-5 Super MLC (78)2017-9-5 Super MLC (72)
