We have a new European Area Presidency. They began
serving together on August 1, 2012.
President Jose A. Teixeira
Elder Patrick Kearon, 1st Counselor
Elder Kent F. Richards, 2nd Counselor
We traveled to Frankfurt on August 10-11, 2012 for our New Mission Presidents' Seminar with the European Area Presidency. We stayed at the Hessischer Hof for the conference. It was beautiful, right in Frankfurt, and true German.
Attending were the Area Presidency, the Madrid, Spain MTC Mission President, the Preston, England MTC Mission President, the In Field Representatives, the Medical Missionaries, the Temporal and Legal Affairs for the Area and
all fifteen new Mission Presidents and companions that
arrived at their
field of labor in July.
The outdoor porch for breaks and meals.
Time to get acquainted with the Area team
that is based in Frankfurt.
During breaks it was time to visit with 'old' friends from the
Provo MTC Mission President Seminar held in June.
Just a personal note. We love and appreciate Elder Kearon. We first met him in Elder Quentin L. Cook's office in Salt Lake City on June 21, 2012. Elder Cook set President Robinson apart as Mission President and Elder Kearon set me apart as a full time missionary and companion to the Mission President.
Elder Kearon has been assigned to tour the Belgium Netherlands Mission on September 5-7, 2012. We are so very excited to have our dear friend come and meet our dedicated Missionaries and teach and train us so the work can go forward as has been promised to the saints in these two wonderful countries.
