Senior and Married Missionary Couples Conference

We held our triannual Senior and Missionary Couples Conference in Andorra. President and Sister Fowers organized a memorable two days of site seeing and adventure.

Opening Night 
We held a three hour meeting where each person reported on their area and shared a spiritual experience. We also discussed health needs of the missionaries, apartment improvements, and a variety of ideas to improve missionary work. Following our meeting we had a delicious meal cooked by a professional chef.

We visit the Fowers' wonderful neighbor farmhouse en La Seu d'Urgell (a small town just outside Andorra).

After the luncheon the missionaries went up to Mont Juic, a local castle with a commanding view of the Barcelona area. President Dayton shared that this is their mission as they viewed the entire Barcelona metropolitan area.
