Mission Tour with Elder and Sister Kazuhiko Yamashito

The mission recently had an incredible experience. Elder KazuhikoYamashita, of the First Quorum of the Seventy, visited our mission for a mission tour. On Monday morning, November 7th, Elder and SisterYamashita stood at the door to the chapel and shook hands with each  missionary before the conference began. While speaking, Elder Yamashita emphasized how important it is to focus on the good things, how important it is to think about God and to seek for and invite the spirit to be with us at all times.  Sister Yamashita told each missionary to go home and list 100 good qualities about his or her companion and then share the list with each other. She also told us to "open your mouth" and share the gospel with everyone that you come in contact with. 

 After that meeting we left for the airport to fly to Reno to do the same with the missionaries in the Reno area on Tuesday. The meetings were unbelievable. The love that was felt from Elder and Sister Yamashita was incredible.  The missionaries have not quit talking about what a great experience it was. It was a spiritual high for everyone!

"Open Your Mouth"
Sister Yamashita taught everyone how to fold a piece of
paper to look like a mouth that would open and close.
