3-2016 Asia Area Mission Presidents' Seminar - Hong Kong

Did you happen to notice that there are 11 presidents and wives standing? 
In addition to the usual 10 areas in the Asia Area, we have a new mission this year! 
The Vietnam Hanoi Mission!!!
We were also so blessed to have in attendance during our seminar this year the Executive Director of the Missionary Department, Elder Brent H. Nielson and his wife. Elder Nielson instructed on this past January's worldwide missionary broadcast, as well as this past December's first worldwide mission president's broadcast in the history of the Church. He answered our many questions and helped us to understand our missionary purpose in relation to hastening the work of salvation. We are called to teach repentance and baptize converts!
