Our First Zone Conference
We had two days to move in and unpack and then it was on to business. We had our first Zone Conference on the following Tuesday. It consisted of 4 days of traveling around the mission to introduce ourselves and begin to get to know our missionaries. President Beck shared his personal beliefs with the Elders and Sisters and told them of his vision for the mission. He told them that if this was the #l Mission in the world then they had to become the #1 missionaries and that meant they had to learn to "Walk the Walk". By the time we got through †he mission, the tom-toms were beating. Every missionary knew that President Beck expected obedience if the mission was to succeed. We are so blessed to have the Relief Society provide a delicious lunch for our missionaries for each individual Zone Conference. This is a picture of one of our Elders from Samoa. His name is Elder Kafusi. He keeps us in stitches with his comments. As he sat down to lunch he took one of the fruit centerpieces and said, "This is Kafusi's". And that was that.
