Baptism and Mission Leadership Conference (MLC)

Sunday, July 30, was a great day.  Chukwido (early post referred to as Chuck) was baptized.  It was a very spiritual meeting.  He bore a very strong testimony after his baptism.  The ward members of the Brampton Ward were there to support him.  There were over fifty people attending his baptism.  They had refreshments afterwards - it was dinner - chili, sandwiches, chips and salsa plus a huge Costco cake all decorated up for him and lots of other desserts.

This past Wednesday, August 2nd was MLC.  Mission Leadership Conference is the first Wednesday of each month.  This is for the Assistants to the President (APs), Zone Leaders and Sister Leaders.  The morning starts early with the office senior couples preparing breakfast for 7:30 am - waffles, fruit and yogurt.  The missionaries then have their morning training by President and Sister Shields.  Just before lunch, they had a service project.  Elder Swendsen and I planned a cleaning of the Credit View Chapel where the mission Office is and where their MLC was happening.  There is only one ward in the building and they have a hard time finding people to clean it.  I handed out assignments to teams of missionaries and sent them to the Member Custodial closet where Elder Swendsen handed them supplies.  Then we stood back and got out of their way.  40 minutes and they were done.  There was a lot of laughter and singing.  They had a ball and it was a good experience for all.  They even cleaned things that weren't on their lists.  Every angel that resides in that building had it's halo dusted and polished.  We just said WOW!!!!
