Christmas Zone Conferences 2009
Friday we traveled to SanLuisPotosi for our first of 4 zone conferences. Elder Verdeja and Elder Sherman, our secretaries prepared with the help of some talented young investigators, our Christmas cards for this year. They turned out great and have the pictures of all our Elders and Hermanas...this will be a special keepsake for our missionaries. Bob and I personally purchased the new Spanish Bible for all the missionaries, I wrote a little message for them and Brenna and I wrapped them during Thanksgiving holiday. We also gave out a water filter bottle...which will purify water from whatever source.....this should help with our diarrhea problems....we hope! All and all, Christmas zone conferences are so much fun. Capacitations are taught by the zone leaders and opportunities are given to practice teaching techniques that will improve our efforts to Find,Teach and Baptize those who are prepared to receive this glad message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. We are so grateful for this special responsibility we have to participate in this great cause.... The pictures are of the Benito Juarez Zone; Elders Brown, Perry, Whittle and Delgado checking out their Christmas Card; and Elders Velarde, Martinez, Fife Brubaker and Hansen enjoying their pizza.
