April 2017

 April started off with General Conference--missionaries all over the mission gathered in church buildings to view General Conference.
By the last session on Sunday, it was just missionaries in the English Room at our Church.
 We had a wonderful Mission Leadership Council with our Zone Leaders & Sister Training Leaders.
 On Easter Sunday we loved speaking in Klagenfurt and being with our wonderful missionaries there.
 The Wades invited us to an Easter Lunch.
 The Office Staff enjoyed a German lunch together before transfers.
 We were thrilled to welcome our 12 new Goldens into the mission plus one amazing returning missionary!
We enjoyed a dinner together before finding out where these new missionaries would be serving.
 At the end of the evening the Assistants were great to lead them on the bahn to their hostel--they were ready to get to bed!
 The next day they were excited and ready to go to their new areas!
 We also enjoyed dinner and testimonies with our departing group of 14.
 These great missionaries will be missed in the mission!
Our next Sunday was spent in the Passau Branch.  What a great place to be!
President Kohler and I also went to Frankfurt this month for our Mission Presidents' Seminar.  This is the wonderful group of ten Presidents and Wives whom we came out with.  
Seated in front is the Europe Area Presidency.
 It sure was fun to talk to Sister Ivory from our son Tanner's mission!
 We enjoyed a visit from Elder Lingen and family at the Mission Home.
 Then we headed to Bern where two of our Sisters are doing a great job giving Temple Tours.
 We had interviews and District Meetings with the Bern Zone.
 Erika got to attend the Paris Temple Open House with a family from our stake and she ran into one of our former Elders there!
 The last Sunday of the month we were in the Biel Ward.  
And look who we found--Elder & Sister Fox!
 Our Elders in Biel are doing a fabulous job :)


  1. I'd like the email address of the office there, I have a friend near Stutgart who I want to send the missionaries to

    1. is the e-mail address for our mission office. We would love to get your friend's information and send the missionaries to visit!

  2. I hope you will encourage the new "mission mom" to continue this! Our son comes in their first transfer. He's in the England MTC now. Good luck to you in your next adventures.
