"TO EVERY THING THERE IS A SEASON AND A TIME UNDER THE HEAVEN." ECCLESIASTES 3:1

Working on new material for the blog!

It has taken me awhile to decide what to do with the blog. I felt lost not posting pictures of the missionaries and I've felt lost with not having my missionary routine. We are starting to settle into a different routine and I have decided to start blogging again. It will take me a little while to get things squared away but we are rolling into the next phase of our journey in life - recovery from the best experience of our lives ( the mission), knee surgery( Tim's), physical therapy for my back, and the economy with our business. We look forward to continuing our growth spiritually and preparing for what comes next!

KHARKOV ZONE CONFERENCE WAS EQUALLY WELL PUT TOGETHER AND SAID. THE THINGS I NOTICED THAT WERE TALKED ABOUT(CONCERNING TEACHING SKILLS ) THAT WAS A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN DONETSK WERE: LISTENING MORE IMPORTANT THAN SPEAKING, REACH OUT SINCERELY, BODY LANGUAGE, FACIAL AND EYES, LISTEN CAREFULLY TO YOUR COMPANION, RESOLVE CONCERNS, ADJUST TO TEACHING NEEDS, ADAPT TO CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES , RELY ON THE SPIRIT TO HELP YOU AND TEACH AT A PACE YOUR INVESTIGATORS ARE READY FOR. AS YOUR ABILITY TO TEACH GROWS THE PEOPLE WILL LISTEN MORE AND GAIN YOUR TRUST. SMALL AND SIMPLE THINGS IS HOW THE LORD BRINGS ABOUT CHANGE. ELDER SHIPP SANG A BEAUTIFUL SONG "OH HOW LOVELY WAS THE MORNING" AND ELDER HUNT GAVE A TALK ON "ENDURING TO THE END". ALL THE MISSIONARIES THAT WILL BE DEPARTING BORE THEIR TESTIMONIES. PRESIDENT FRY GAVE A GREAT MESSAGE ON UNITY. HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED HOW GEESE FLY IN A V. THE LEAD GOOSE WORKS THE HARDEST AND WHEN HE IS TIRED HE MOVES TO THE BACK AND ANOTHER TAKES OVER. THEY ALL HONK TO EACH OTHER TO ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER THAT THEY CAN DO IT! IF ONE LANDS - 2 OTHERS LAND WITH HIM. HE ENCOURAGED THE MISSIONARIES TO BE UNIFIED WITH THEIR COMPANIONS AS WELL AS THE WHOLE MISSION. IT WAS GREAT!! I HOPE THE MISSIONARIES COME AWAY AS INSPIRED AS I AM. I LOVE ZONE CONFERENCE AND OUR KHARKOV MISSIONARIES!!!

It sounds like an inspiring Zone Conference! It's so good to hear that Our missionary (Elder Shipp) is sharing his talents. We love to hear about what he's learning and doing. Thanks for posting!

Sounds like it was just what was needed as in other conferences. It never ceases to amaze me how mission presidents are inspired to say those things that the missionaries need right then. Personal revelation and having the power of the spirit because of the stewardship we have is such a powerful and important concept in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thanks for all your time, effort and service.
