April Zone Leader Council . . .

We had our monthly zone leader council today at the Mission Home. We meet in the basement conference room for training and discussion. We´ve been blessed with the best missionaries in the world and even greater young missionary leaders, so we always enjoy this time with the zone leaders. Today our assistants also presented a great training on the Restoration. Pictured above kneeling (l-r): Elder McGowan from Mississippi, Elder Carrizo from Chile, Elder Retamal from Chile, Elder Miner from Utah, Elder Jefferson from Utah, and Elder Hansen our assistant from Connecticut. Standing (l-r) are: Elder Ashton from Utah, Elder LeBaron from Arizona, Elder Coles our assistant from Utah, Elder Sheahan from Montana, Elder Cook from Idaho, Elder Cortéz from Nicaragua, Elder Helgesen from Utah, Elder Hunsaker from Wyoming, Elder Nikolaus from Arizona, Elder Evans from Utah, Elder Christensen from Arizona, Elder Andia from Argentina, Elder Walker from Idaho, Elder Gonzalez from Chile, Elder Amezcua from Minnesota, Elder Lund from Utah and Elder and Hna Hamilton our senior couple that leaves in May. (Sorry we didn´t position ourselves better for the sun) It is custom to take a silly shot after the initial photo and its always interesting to see what these guys can come up with. We love them very, very much.

We so appreciate the time you take to post pictures and write on your blog. It is the most wonderful thing next to letters from our missionary. We have been looking at the zone leader pictures for 18 months and it was so fun to see Jens now in those pictures. Thank you for all you do. We think you must be the best mission President and wife in the whole world. We are so glad that our son was sent to your mission. He is having an amazing experience and we thank you for your part in that. We are so happy that he has been serving valiantly and is working so hard for the Lord. Thank you for your amazing influence and the love that you radiate for all of these young men and women.
Thank you again for sharing your happenings on this blog. It has helped us to connect with where Jens is and has been a joy to read.
Most sincerely,
Laird and Robin Ashton
