Us Seniors

Elder et Soeur Arn & Jody

Sunday, July 13


Today we got to meet our new Mission President. President Woodland is from Logan, Utah, and has been over the Belgium Mission for about two years now. He was visiting our branch in Mons. His wife was not with him, however. She was teaching in the International Ward in Brussels that Sunday. He is a wonderful man, and we are very blessed to have him as our mission president.

This was President Kronen's last Sunday in our branch. He's going back home to Canada. He almost died a month ago in the hospital from gall bladder surgery complications. He bore a strong testimony of the Savior visiting him in his hospital room the night he almost died. He said in addition to the Savior's voice he felt his gentle hand touch him where the pain was unbearable and thereafter he was able to sleep through the night in very little pain. He recovered miraculously and was back in church two weeks later.

We were surprised when they called the new Branch President from another ward. President La Baron had been the Bishop in another ward when he received this call.
 He said he was reluctant to make the change at first, but that the Spirit had testified to him that this is where he is supposed to be. He is an American but speaks French fluently. They kept the same two counselors, Brother Kilgore (an American) and Brother Ludovic LeRoy (a Belgian). They both seem like they will continue to do a great job.
