January 20 Mission Leadership Training

Many of our trainings are held here, in the Artesia chapel (Torrance North Stake Center)

 Attending were the sister training leaders, district leaders, zone leaders, and assistants to the president.  

January 4-5 Arriving Missionaries

We welcome 13 arriving missionaries!

 A few notes about this scene:  The sisters are standing in front of the temple truck that carried most of the suitcases from the airport, which is parked next to the Westwood Chapel.  In the background are skyscrapers along Wilshire Blvd.

In the background is the north side of the Los Angeles Temple--
not the front, but still really beautiful!
