Scripture Power!!

The Church strongly encourages all non-English speaking missionaries to learn English during their mission. This is a great challenge for some but also a huge blessing to all those who make the effort.

To help them, our daughter Kathryn, who is a church service missionary here with us, has been coming up with ideas to encourage their learning and challenges for them to achieve.

I am pretty sure the most fun part of the zone conference was the English portion. This was also the scariest for some. Everyone was challenged to prepare a 2 minute talk on Faith. Then their names were put in a bag and three from each zone were drawn out and asked to share their talk. Almost everyone prepared in advance (but unfortunately not all). But for those who did, we were so very proud of them and their accomplishments.

We also had a "sing off" with the song Scripture Power. The Americans learned it in Spanish and the native Spanish speakers learned it in English, and then we had a competition to see who could sing it the best and the loudest. This was my favorite activity at zone conference, and I am pretty sure everyone else loved it as well.


Planning how they were going to present it . . .

 Have to admit this was my favorite zone!! Both the English and the Spanish versions were awesome. I just wish I had thought to record it.

Sorry the pictures aren't that great, but hopefully you can catch a glimpse of the enthusiasm!
And that leaves me with just one more post about zone conference--which I will post next week--because tonight we have a farewell and tomorrow we have transfer day!!
