Zone Conference

We just finished another zone conference. By the end of the day everyone headed to their areas feeling spiritually and physically fed.  Zone Conference starts at 9:00am and ends at 3:00pm. Before lunch we have the training which includes the opening talk by President Tye. He talked to the missionaries about  striving for exact obedience, and to love everything about missionary work. The AP's spoke on using the daily planner and area books, and I spoke on the Abrahamic Covenant. Then we had lunch, celebrated birthdays, played a game, then listened to testimonies. It was a great day and all felt the Spirit.
