Sister Burton and Sister Oscarson visit to Milan

In October, the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Milan area and the missionaries of the Italy Milan Mission were blessed by a visit from the General Relief Society President, Sister Linda K. Burton, the General Young Women President, Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson and Elder Patrick Kearon and Elder Paul V. Johnson of the First Quorum of Seventy. Many of their spouses also blessed our mission by coming to teach us.  The general auxiliary leaders and authorities arrived October 20th and departed on October 22nd.  Member and missionary meetings and visits were held on October 21, 2015.


As soon as the guests were picked up from the airport, we were able to go to a special group showing at "The Last Supper" in Milan.


We then met two stake presidents and their wives in Milan, took a tour of the Duomo and dined together in downtown Milan.

The Senior Couple Sorelle were also in attendance and brought salads and cookies

We love our sweet Sorelle!

The smiles of the missionaries brighten everyone's day.

Brother Burton teaching about growing into the "mantle" of a missionary
What a special experience to meet with these general church leaders and get to know them more personally and to learn from these divinely-called leaders through personal revelation.  We are so very blessed as a mission with great missionaries and plenty of people to find, teach and baptize into the restored Church of Jesus Christ on the earth today.
