Know Your White Handbook

Senior AP Elder Fisher gives scenarios that arise in the everyday life of a missionary while companionship teams race to find answers for appropriate responses in "the white Bible"
(aka the Missionary Handbook).

The First Vision Memorization Test

While the President looks on, companionship teams race to recite the First Vision by finding one phrase at a time in sequential order from all those pinned randomly on the board and then, alternating between companions, shooting a dart at the next phrase in the proper order.

Sisters Saviano and Balls were the champions!

Lunch, at last!

Parting Note:

Sister Clement is an amazing songwriter.  Here she performs a ballad she wrote (with her ukelele) to welcome new additions to the Sisterhood of Washington DC North Mission.
(Sister Aldridge is her side-kick.)
