Winter Zone Conferences
Car inspections at winter zone conferences are rather grueling, especially for our Arizona vehicle manager, Elder Spencer. But he soldiers on. Some of the missionaries write off external cleanliness in the winter as hopeless, but these missionaries shine in any weather. The ever-cheerful, even joyful, Elder Leon with Elder Emry above and the more serious but equally dedicated to cleanliness Elder Cummings went over their cars again after arriving at the meeting to make them spotless. Each won the coveted "Golden Plates" award for their zone.
The Zone Conferences were also a spiritual feast with the messages delivered by President and Sister Evans as well as the zone leaders and Assistants to the President. The APs presented on the topic of using technology on the mission including giving lessons by Skype.
The Area Medical Advisor and his wife, Elder and Sister Sonkins were with us. They are based in Boston and were delightful to get to know.
