11-16-16 & 11-18-16 AZ Scottsdale Sister Missionary Conference

We decided to hold a Sister’s Missionary Conference with all the sister missionaries in our mission.  Due to the distance between the valley and mountains we held separate conferences – one in the valley and one in the mountains.  Sister training leaders brainstormed themes and came up with two ideas – one for the valley and one for the mountains.  For the Valley conference the theme was “I Can Do All Things Through Christ Which Strengtheneth Me.”  For the Mountain conference the theme was “Trust in the Lord with All Thine Heart.”  Frames were purchased and assembled with the theme and given to each sister at the conclusion of the conferences.  It was fun watching the sisters pick out the frame that best appealed to them.  The agenda for each conference was as follows:  1)  Fun game put on by Sis. Robinson involving pennies.  Each sister was given a certain number of pennies with the goal to accumulate as many pennies as possible.  That is done by coming up with something that you have never done or experienced but which most of the other sisters probably have done or experienced.  For example one sister said she had never seen one Star Wars movie ever.  Just about all the other sisters, of course, had at least seen one Star Wars movie and so they had to give that sister one of their pennies.  One of the sisters from the Phillipines said she had never seen or touched snow.  She received a penny from all the other sisters in the group.  We all had some good laughs and got to know each other a little better.  Then we enjoyed hearing some missionary tips and healthy eating advice from a Stake RS President.  That was a lot of fun and very informational.  Next we had a counselor from LDSFS come speak about relationships and how to cope better with the stress of missionary life.  These counselors were outstanding.  We then enjoyed a wonderful lunch.  Next a couple of sister missionaries led a discussion on how to get more out of scripture study.  In conclusion, Sis. Robinson presented a power point presentation focusing on the theme of the conference.   Following are some pictures from the two conferences.  img_0172
