Six New Zone Leaders
Monday afternoon, evening and Tuesday morning til noon were spent together with Assts and Zone Leaders in the concilio to plan for the month of July. July begins our third and last year of missionary labors in the Leon Mexico Mission...so for President and I, it was with great energy we gathered and surrounded ourselves with this great force of missionaries. Elders Callen, Ditto, Maxfield, Trejo, Martinez and Salazar are the new leaders that met with us for the first time,and Elders Hatton,Robledo,Kay,Schow,Lara,Herrera,Camargo,LopezV,Grecco,Jensen,Velasquez and Holt are veterans for at least one change. It is an incredible feeling to meet together in our training room for these concilios. These missionaries come searching for answers, direction and inspiration that will help them lead their zones....as they return we find ourselves fortified by one another,united to lay everything we have on the altar and Find, Invite and Baptize those who are prepared to change their lives and receive this beautiful message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. My pictures reflect some of their creative moments teaching each other their assigned capacitation. Comment about #1 The room became "quite smelly" with all the shoes in the middle of the floor. The purpose for their madness was a finding activity....you can only imagine what happened next. #2 is Elder Jensen teaching a social dance move to all the ZLs. Elder Jensen leaves the mission in August and will be leaving behind his trademark. He will be returning to a performing dance team at BYU...There was a connection between this dance move and missionary work...but I was in such awe with this move that I lost my mind..(momentarily)Elder Holt is the missionary hanging on tight and praying that his dancing partner doesn't brake his grip. We pray for these great leaders. We know Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers.
