Feb 24,2013

    How did February disappear so rapidly. Since last writing we have held three multi zone conferences: one in Poole for the three western zones, one in Reading for the three central zones and one in Crawley for the three eastern zones. It is wonderful to get the missionaries together and to see them interact with each other. It is awesome to hear them sing "We are as the Army of Heleman"and "Called to Serve". We give them counsel, call them to repentance, instruct them, love them and send them back to work. Oh and for sure we feed them.
   Last Sunday we travelled by train and tube into London for a meeting with the greater London Stake Presidents and Bishops.  The area presidency was there and they gave a preview of the advertising initiative that is coming soon.  We stayed overnight with the mission president in the LONDON  Mission; President and Sister Jordan.  Monday we took a long walk in Hyde Park in the morning and then had a meeting with the area presidency in the afternoon.  We were linked by video with the other four mission presidents in the United Kingdom.
     We are anticipating the opening of the musical, The Book of Mormon in March. There has been some interesting advertising.  The church will initiate an advertising campaign of it's own in April.  We anticipate a lot of traffic to  We are allowing our missionaries to go on the website for one hour a week to become familiar with the contents so they can respond better to questions that will arise and will be better able to help the members engage their friends in conversations about the church and it's doctrines and values. I can't find any good pictures to sent right now.
     You would be so proud of Sister Millar, she did her first ever  power point presentation on the iPad  with a remote control of the slides from my iPhone .  She was awesome. Her presentation was on cleaning your flat. She is getting much more comfortable in speaking, even on short notice.  Grandma has arrived in the digital age.
We want to congratulate George on his mission call to Bolivia, He will be entering the Peru MTC on July 31st, this year, We are so proud of him, and wish him all the best, We know he will be an awesome missionary. Grandma Val and Grandpa Doc are thrilled.
   This Thursday we fly to Frankfurt for two days for an area conference with the area Presidency and all the 30 European Presidents and their wives, along with the other auxiliary leaders from around Europe, we will be home Saturday.
Does anyone know where the Hansen are going yet? with 58 new mission just opening up we would love to hear, We can certainly relate to what they are going through right now, Unfortunately none of the new ones are in England, our are just getting bigger.    
       God Bless to you all, we always love to hear from you,      President and Sister Millar.
