Elder Zwick of The Seventy visits the Alabama Birmingham Mission

Late in the afternoon of Sunday, January 19th, 2014, Elder W. Craig Zwick of the First Quorum of The Seventy made a detour on his way home to Salt Lake City from another Southeastern assignment.  His first stop was the Mission Home.

President and Sister Hanks hosted a dinner and presentation by Elder Zwick to the assembled Senior Couples and the rest of the Mission Presidency.  He spoke in considerable detail about the growth of the missionary force, not only in the past fifteen months since President Monson’s announcement of the change in ages, but also of the projected growth of The Church in coming months.

The following morning and through much of the day, Elder Zwick presided over our Mission Leadership Council meeting, involving all the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders of the Mission.  MLC members gained a great deal from Elder Zwick’s training and teaching, lessons they transmitted later in their own Zone training sessions.  During lunch and prior to his departure, Elder Zwick made himself available for one-on-one conversations and the inevitable picture taking – both with individual missionaries as well as group shots.
