As we have mentioned in earlier posts, we are in charge of the monthly luncheon at the Temple Missionary Conference for the Madrid Temple missionaries and for other local missionaries. For the month of February, we chose the theme of "Love One Another" (the conference was held the week of Valentine's Day).
For centerpieces on the tables, Beverly made "heart" flowers, put the vase on a paper doily and added heart candies (which were difficult to find in Spain!):
The complete decorations for the tables looked like this:
We were happy that Elder Mike and Sister Charmaine Anderson (whose mission blog is http://canaryislandsysa.blogspot.com) were able to join us. Here they are seated with Sister and President Tenney (he is the Madrid Temple President):
We were also happy to welcome other new missionaries, Sister Smalley (at left; new temple missionary), Sister Vivian and Elder Bruce Sullivan, who are seated next to President and Sister Sitterud (he is the Madrid MTC President):
Finally, we were happy to welcome a new temple missionary couple, Elder Greg and Sister Montie Jones. They are seated next to Sister and Elder Pérez (long-time temple missionaries), and President and Sister Somoza (he is first counselor in the temple presidency):
We enjoy our monthly missionary conference. It's great to eat delicious food, to enjoy each others' company, and to hear a spiritual message from President Tenney.
