Mission Conference Toit Rouge May 26th, 2009
This picture was taken at a their zone conference. I don't know the names of all the elders, but I do know that Cameron is on the far right, leaning in. Elder Dunn is the one standing behind him, with Elder Cloward in front of him with his arm around Elder Foreman, I believe. Elder Turner is third from the left, Elder Legere and I can't remember the elders names to the left or Elder Legere. Here they are at the same zone conference celebrating May and June birthdays. The sister in the gold dress is Sis. Ayekoue (pronounced "eye-you-kway"), wife of Pres. Ayekoue, the mission president.
