In August President and Sister Baughman attended a Mission Presidents' Seminar in Preston, England with over 35 mission presidents and their wives.  Elders L. Tom Perry and Ronald Rasband and their wives, along with Area Seventies and staff, joined with them to teach and train.  They attended a session at the Preston Temple and also enjoyed sightseeing in the beautiful countryside.  The scenery was like a fairytale - simply magical.  It was a memorable and spiritually uplifting few days
