Sister's Training with Sister Callister!

We were able to gather our 34 Sisters in the mission together for a Sister's Training on Priesthood and Womanhood! Sister Callister served as our focal point as she trained us on how supporting her husband has been a blessing to her entire family.
It worked out to be quite perfectly timed because our own daughter-in-law had just given birth to grandchild number 6 and we were able to have an illustration of the blessings of womanhood and the great calling and responsibility we have been given as woman--how key we are in the Father's plan!
Our Samoan language program sisters gathered for a photo!
Our Tongan language program sisters were not going to be without a picture as well!

We were able to discuss how sisters can have a critical role in the mission as they lend their support to their Zone and District leaders! I solicited ideas and ways the sisters could do this from the Zone leaders themselves and it helped the sisters see how much they are needed! We then asked the sisters how the Zone Leaders could be more helpful to them in their role as missionaries---the Elders will have to wait till Zone Leader Council! We love our Sisters! We love our Elders too!!!
