Zone Conference

April 4, 2016

Well this week was zone conference! It was very nice for being from 8am to 4pm. It was actually very helpful and gave us some really good insights of how we should go about mission work. There were 4 zones there and we got to see those who we haven't seen since late January! It actually turs out though another missionary from my MTC group went home. That makes 3 in 3 transfers...... It is sad to see that but it is for the better I believe. Bounce on Monday was fun though. We went with a hilarious member from the ward and his family. It was very fun and pretty funny watching this guy jump. We had two solid lessons with Costa and were able to teach him the Plan of Salvation as well as the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will probably commit him to baptism this week! We also have finally got Matias going to church and if all goes well he will be baptized on the 8th of May!! On Sunday this week we had a Stake Easter Cantata. Basically just music and singing from a choir! It was actually really good and reminds us of the true meaning of Easter. I look forward to conference this weekend as well! I got to see the Saturday morning session at a member house as well as the world report! It was really nice and very inspiring! It is crazy how the Provo City Center temple was done! They had a whole spotlight on it and it is insane! I also heard that they announced a new temple in Zimbabwe!! That is awesome for the African continent! That will make it so much cheaper and easier for people to get to the temple! Also this week is the Durban Temple ground breaking! That should be cool! We have a few members going so that will be a good experience for them!! Also just Ether and Moroni left in the Book of Mormon then I move on to the New testament and finishing Jesus the Christ. I have made a goal to read the Old testament, The new testament, The Book of Mormon, D and C, and the Pearl of Great Price each year that I am on mission! IT will be a good challenge and one I think I can do! Anyways have a good week and stay safe!! Love you all!
