Last Day of Zone Conferences!

After three weeks of conferences we were finally done!! Here are some pictures from our last conference. I am sorry for those I missed, but everyone should be in the group picture at least.

For this lunch the zone leaders ordered pizza. I think everyone enjoyed it.

We weren't the only ones enjoying the pizza. These red fire ants came running quickly when they discovered an empty pizza box sitting on the floor. Luckily I think (hope) the missionaries were able to get rid of them all.

The entire zone

That night was also stake conference so we stayed for that. While President Wagner attended the priesthood session we hung out in the air conditioned cultural hall where Kathryn entertained all the little kids who were hanging out there with us.
The meetings the following day were such a treat.  We were greeted at the door by the sister missionaries. Inside the elders and sisters were greeting and manning a booth where they distributed literature to investigators.

 There are 28 missionaries in this stake and they all participated in the closing song. I wish I could have taken a picture of it! Following a closing hymn by the congregation, the pianist began playing "We'll Bring the World His Truth" After the introduction the missionaries all began walking into the chapel. They walked down both aisles singing the song. They then lined up across the front of the room while continuing to sing and ended all together there in front. It was so beautiful, and very emotional. I started crying the second I saw them all come into the room. What a wondrous sight!!

It was such a great day, that we didn't even mind the crazy drive home in the pouring rain and fog! :-)
