Sister Truman

Sister Steenhoek is a SLC Temple Square VC Sister
who has completed her two-transfer full-time proselyting assignment with us,
but will now return to Temple Square for the remainder of her 18-month mission.
After she completes that, she will be awarded her service coin.

Departing Testimonies at Transfer Meeting

Our newest Assistant to the President, Elder Malugin, conducted

Elder Loveless testified that, while these had been the best two years of his life so far,
they wouldn't end up being the best two years of his life in the long run
because he and the other departing missionaries are about to embark on the next phase of their evolving lives.

Sister Steenhoek talked about the promise in Ether 12:27 to make strengths of our weaknesses
 and the enabling power of the Atonement in her life

Sister Truman articulated what a rare and blessed situation we have in this mission to be such a "family."

Elder Hart declared that if anyone in the audience was thinking they hadn't converted anyone,
they were wrong, because they have converted him.

Elder and Sister Fulkerson have been serving at the Barlow Center

They have exemplified organization, innovative leadership and spiritual inspiration

Sister Tembo's early flight home to Zambia prevented her from attending.  We missed her!
