Zone Conferences - April 2018

We are blessed to serve with such wonderful missionaries.  
When we rise together to do this wonderful work
there is unity and energy that is founded in faith.
Our trainings were great.  
The itinerary is as follows:
Song and prayer.
Introduction of new missionaries.
Spiritual thought.

President Allen - Welcome 
We follow the example of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in Daniel 3:

17- "If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning
fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
18- But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods,
nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up."

We do our part.  We work hard.  We receive what we receive at God's hand
and if we receive not, we still work hard and do our part.

STL's - Mostra Examples
The word "mostra" means "to show".
This is the modern version of a street-board or "soapbox preaching".
A group of missionaries use one of various methods 
to show people in an area something that will
spur an interest in our message. 

ZL's - New Approach to Old School Finding.
The most important thing we do is find.
If this does not take place there will be few,
if any, people to teach.  How can we be better at this 
important aspect of missionary work?

Assistants - Efficiency Report and
Working with Members and Family History Finding.
We have improved our efforts according to the charts.
We have a wonderful opportunity to offer people to connect to their
ancestors.  This in turn will possibly connect them to the gospel.

Sister Allen - More, Better, Strive, Miracles
We want to have more of many things...
more investigators, faith, work.
We need to do better if we want more.
Better requires seriously striving.
More + Better + Strive = Miracles.
The song, H# 243, "Let Us All Press On" is an anthem 
of what we need to do.

President Allen - Challenges
To find 400 contacts in the remainder of this transfer.
To fast from Facebook for one week.

Closing testimonies of outgoing missionaries.
Mission hymn and "family prayer".

Thank youfor your loving support from home.
It is so very important.

We will end with our new granddaughter, Rose, who was born during
 zone conferences.  She is half a day old in this picture - number 10 granddaughter
out of 12 grandchildren.  Life is good.  We are richly blessed.
