Today was Zone Conference – every six weeks, the Mission holds zone conference where missionaries in an area come together for training. Today, Jakarta Zone and Batagor (Bandung, Tangerang and Bogor) Zone joined to meet.
It’s a chance for the Mission President (with help from Assistants, Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders) to teach and remind the missionaries of the reason they are here – to invite others to come unto Christ. Also discussed are mission rules, teaching techniques, proselyting techniques, encouragement, and fellowship. (When I was a young missionary 45 years ago in Atlanta, there were no Sister Training Leaders and the Assistants conducted the meeting NOT the Zone Leaders. It’s nice that the Zone Leaders now get the experience of conducting a meeting.)
