This past week was ridiculously crazy busy all the stinkin' time! Haha!
Tuesday we had Zone Conference from 7:45 to 5. Received some mad revelation too, it was awesome! Great conference, we learned a lot about what an "All Purpose Missionary" is. Basically we are to "Find, Teach, Baptize, Retain, and Activate" All the time, no matter where we are or what we're doing, we're focused on all 5 of these opportunities.
Wednesday we had MLC's from 8:30 until 5. We talked about where the Mission is going, why we did or didn't hit certain goals, and set some new policies and such. It was a good meeting. For the most part, MLC's is a meeting to discuss actions we might take at some point. It's a bit frustrating when we don't decide anything. But that's OK! :)
Thursday we had a Stake Correlation meeting where The ZL's meet with the Stake President, and President Bell to talk about different struggles and solutions within the Stake. It's a great meeting every time, that was from 8:45 'til 11. Then we met with the STL's from 11 'til 12:30 to talk about Zone Training which would be the next day. Then we had lunch on the way home so we could weekly plan.
Following this, we found out that there was an emergency transfer going on, and the new companion wouldn't be available 'til the next day, and we needed to take the other Elder with us, so we had to drive to go get him, and then come all the way back to Ward Correlation right at 3:30. This went until about 5 or so.
Friday we had Zone Training, Elder Nield gave a training based upon the topic, "We already chose". The STL's trained on teaching skills. And I gave a training that was focused around Consecrating ourselves. It was a great meeting, and we felt the spirit really strongly. That meeting went from 9 'til 1.
I'm not quite sure what else to update you on, I'm real low on time, and I hope those details are sufficient for you readers. Sorry I'm not able to take more time!
Love you all, talk to you soon!
P.S. Please remember to invite someone to church this week, they need the blessings that come from obeying the Commandments of God!
