We combined our three coastal zones this time!
We started with Leadership Meeting.
Elders are waiting for leadership meeting to end.
One of our English Elders! I'm always flattered when they want a picture with me!
Morning snack before the conference begins!
The chapel before the conference begins. It is the only room in the church that has air conditioning.
President Thompson laid out his vision as: Building for Eternity!
We are excited for a few new changes this year in schedules. First, we will be holding Zone Conferences every six weeks instead of every twelve.
President Thompson also laid out ten ways to receive blessings as a missionary. Some of them include: to know the Missionary Handbook, to Keep Commitments, and to read the Book of Mormon every day.
A few expectations were clearly spelled out - taken from the Missionary Handbook.
President reminded the missionaries how much we love them and appreciate their dedication and hard work.
We take a break for pizza, and photos!
President tries glasses!
After the conference, packages and mail are handed out.
These two Elders have birthdays today! Happy birthday!
Our Elders have great smiles!
It was a long day of instruction, edifying, and vision for our mission.
