Recently President Russell and I attending our semi-annual mission president's seminar. This time it was held in Snoqualmie (near Seattle), WA at the Salish Lodge. We have 3 days of instruction from our leaders: Elder Richard J. Maynes, Elder Daniel L. Johnson, Elder Steven B. Allen, Elder James J. Hamula (and the mission president's wives are also taught by their wives).
We come back excited and filled with ideas to help our missionaries in the upcoming Zone conferences, Specialized training, interviews, etc. 
On a side note; it had been raining pretty hard all morning (pretty much every morning) and the executive secretary, Rich Monnie, came in and told us the picture would be taken out on the terrace and he had been praying all morning for a clearing long enough for us to take the picture.
We finished our morning sessions and went outside for the picture, 
and it had stopped raining! 
As soon as the pictures were taken it started to rain again.
I believe in the power of prayer!
