2017-04-14 Zone Conference #2

What a joyful day it was today to be with such wonderful missionaries!  As I looked out over the group of about 85 missionaries, I saw sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father who are trying so hard in their own ways to be faithful servants to Him.  Each of them has their own personality, their own strengths, their own weaknesses.  Each one has struggles.  Yet each one of them keeps trying.  Each one of them chose to come on this mission, and they choose to stay.  They choose to get up every morning and exercise and follow the missionary schedule.  They choose to study, to teach, to walk, to talk to strangers, to do so many things that are not comfortable for them.  Yet, they continue to choose to do it.  They have so much goodness in them.  We are SO blessed to be serving with them.  They teach us so much by their examples and their faithful efforts.

We can't record the meeting or them teaching, so it's hard to share the spirit they bring, but hopefully you can taste a bit of what we experience through the pictures of lunchtime, etc.  :)  (That is a favorite time of day for all of them!)
