Master Your Influence was three days of life changing experiences. I have already applied many of the concepts we learned and seen instant dividends. Interestingly enough I put on our class vision board that I would like to have a positive encounter with my mission president (Elder Neil L. Andersen) from many years ago. Yesterday, as we talked with our son who is serving in Washington state a small miracle happened. Elder Andersen visited my son's mission and met him and told him to tell me that he was looking for me. I haven't had a chance to sit and talk with him for over 20 years and you can't tell me this is coincidence. I look forward to processing the information I learned and to apply it to my family, scouts, and students (I'm an educator) so that I can be more effective in my influence on others. I believe I have a mission to be a positive influence, I'm just not sure how far that sphere of influence will extend at this point. Thanks you sooo much.
