Mission President´s Seminar . . .

Susie and I with Elder Bednar and his wife.

Susie and I with Elder Snow and his wife.

Susie and I with the others who arrived with us back in June, 2008. Left to Right: Pte Joe Swenson and his wife (Concepción South Mission), Pte Michael May and his wife (Santiago North Mission). We will always be connected because of our service together.

As you can see, the conference was held in a nice setting. Viña del Mar is a beautiful place and we are grateful to be able to see this part of Chile.

Each year there is a Mission President´s Seminar for all the Mission Presidents in Chile with the Area Presidency and other visiting authorities. This year the conference was held in Viña del Mar, which is a beautiful location on the ocean. Elder Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve and Elder Snow of the Presidency of the Seventy and their wives were here, as well as our Area Presidency and their wives. (last year we had Elder Scott of the Twelve and Elder Gonzalez of the Presidency of the Seventy)

This conference is a great blessing for us. We love being with the other mission presidents and their wives and receiving such inspired training and counsel from these great leaders. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to be taught be Elder Bednar. He and Elder Snow, their wives and the Area Presidency gave us four days of inspired instruction. We will never forget it. What a wonderful blessing for us and for our mission.

President Lovell,
I have a nephew (Seth Richan) who just received his call to the Chile Osorno Mission. He'll start his mission in Jan 2010. I am trying to create a poster size map of the Chile Osorno Mission as a Christmas present to his mom. I am a cartographer by trade. I need help with the exact North boundary of the mission in order to create the map. I have some idea of the boundary, but an exact boundary would be great. Could you e-mail me a map or description of the exact Northern boundary? I would greatly appreciate it.
