A mission conference is a rare and beautiful thing. It requires special permission, and should never be viewed as something ordinary. The November 2012 mission conference for the Japan Nagoya Mission was a spiritual feast, and for many missionaries, a life-changing experience as we made commitments to study and use the Church's Addiction Recovery Program. As President Baird taught us, there is no one who cannot benefit from improving their lives by using this program. We will allow your missionary to share his or her own experience with this, but here we all are together, in anticipation of the feast.
