Elder Soares and Elder Wong, both General Authorities, came to the mission and held an all-mission Conference. This is very unusual, as it requires missionaries to fly in from all over the country – keep in mind Indonesia is wider than the US. So it’s basically the equivalent of a meeting in Chicago for 90 people living all over the US. It’s expensive and logistically difficult because after they are here, they have to have a place to stay (and hotels are too expensive for all of them), so they had to bunk with the Jakarta area missionaries.
But it was a great conference and we really enjoyed listening to a General Authority talk about the Gospel, setting goals and being committed.
