Mission President Seminar in Korea

The past few days were spent in Seoul Korea for the Asia North Area Mission President Seminar. We were privileged to have Elder Cook of the Twelve preside and train us accompanied by Elder Costa of Presidency of the Seventy. Of course Elders Stevenson, Choi and Aoyagi all of the Seventy and our Area Presidency also attended and trained. All the mission presidents from Japan, Korea and Guam/Micronesia attended.This (below) is the group of Japanese presidents and wives that came out with us last year. Two more years to go and it is going way too fast. From left to right, President and Sister Isa, President and Sister Tateoka and President and Sister Daniels. Here are all the currently serving Japan Mission Presidents and their wives. This was taken at the Seoul Temple after our session.
We had a little time to hit the street market. This was as we left the Nandaemun Market in Seoul.
We visited the National Cultural Museum and took a whole group picture. Our general authority visitors and area presidency are on the front row. We are in the back row next to the Daniels and Tateoka's.
Some of us at the Museum on Saturday afternoon.
At Sunday night dinner, many of the Korean sisters dressed in traditional Korean dresses.

The conference was wonderful as we were instructed by the Spirit through an apostle and the Lord's servants. Elder Cook was one of the lead general authorities on the missionary committee when Preach My Gospel was created and he shared with us many insights about that wonderful guide for missionaries. We will be teaching and following up on the things learned in our missions and especially at zone conferences.
