South Istand Senior Training and Retreat

Regardless of our age and stage in life, daily obedience to gospel principles is the only sure way to eternal happiness. President Ezra Taft Benson put it most beautifully when he said, "When obedience ceases to be an irritant and becomes our quest, in that moment God will endow us with power."

Our Senior Missionaries set the example, show the love, and truly have obtained Christlike attributes that they display everyday on their missions. We're so grateful for their examples and dedicated service.

While Sister Kezerian was getting repaired. President Kezerian and some of our wonderful Senior Couples were gathered for training and some P-day activities. We all wish we were there! New Zealand has so much beauty and culture to enjoy.

For three days, the senior missionaries counselled together on how to start Family History Centers, the Addiction Recovery Program, teach with the missionaries, work with members, support temple preparation classes, community involvement and strengthen the youth. We shared ideas from each of the wards and branches they serve in and felt uplifted as we helped each other find solutions in each area. We are so grateful for these great Elders and Sisters, they are marvellous, hard working leaders.
