Zone Conference

Every 6 weeks or so, missionaries come together for a day of meetings and training known as zone conference.  This past week was a combined zone conference with Jakarta Zone and Batagor (Bandung, Tangerang and Bogor) Zone.

It was a good conference – President encouraged us to remember who we represent and to be about the Lord’s errand.  There’s lots of things that can distract from what we should be doing, so be aware of what can take away our focus.  There was of course, much more than this,

President challenged Elder Lasolosi to a push up contest.  Since Elder Lasolosi is a big, young Samoan, President got an age and size handicap, so he won!

A few Elders and Sisters can put away a serious amount of pizza and donuts!  Since there was no rice served, it was just a snack.

    I wonder how many will understand your snack comment? Has elder Buell lost some weight? Thanks for sharing thoughts and photos…
