Zone Conference!

On Feb. 15, we had a zone conference for the three Madrid Zones:  Madrid Este, Madrid Sur and Cuatro Caminos.  Including the three senior couples there are  72 missionaries in those three zones.  We met from 10:00 to 2:45.  President and Watkins spoke, as did the two Ayudantes (AP's), Elders Driggs and Ketchum.  We heard a lovely musical number from Elders Knorr, DeHaro, and Raiano.  We then broke up into zones for workshops led by the three sets of Zone Leaders:  Elders Middleton and Jackson, Elders Griotti and Carter, and Elders Cerro and Gomez.  Following the workshops, we went to the Temple cafeteria for lunch.  All that was left to do after lunch was sing Happy Birthday to the January and February birthday missionaries, enjoy No-Bake Cookies and pick up mail and supplies.   Zone Conference is always a great time to recharge our missionary zeal and spiritual batteries!

  1. This is a great blog! I currently live in Puerto Rico and Elder Waters (brother of Hermana Waters) has been serving in our area since September. A great friend of mine's son, Elder Kunkel is also in your mission. Isn't that connection neat? I can't wait to show Elder Waters some pictures of his sister tonight at FHE (NDH). Con cariño!
