"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!

Zone Conferences

ZONE CONFERENCES TAKE PLACE ABOUT EVERY SIX WEEKS. THEY ARE DESIGNED TO HELP INSPIRE, UPLIFT AND EDUCATE THE MISSIONARIES. WE ALWAYS RECOGNIZE UP COMING BIRTHDAYS AND WE INTRODUCE NEW MISSIONARIES. SISTER FRY DID A PRESENTATION ON WORK FUNDS, LAUNDRY TIPS, HEALTH AND MEDICAL ISSUES AND CLEANING THE BATHROOMS. OUR CONFERENCE THEME WAS CHRIST-LIKE ATTRIBUTES. ALL THE DISTRICT, ZONE AND ASSISTANTS SPOKE ON DIFFERENT ATTRIBUTES. THESE ARE THE ATTRIBUTES THAT WERE TALKED ABOUT. PATIENCE: WITH OUR INVESTIGATORS, A CONSTANT DETERMINATION TO OVER COME OBSTACLES, A GOOD ATTITUDE, DO GOD'S WILL AND ACCEPT HIS TIMING. OBEDIENCE: IF WE ARE OBEDIENT THE LORD WILL OPEN THE WAY, AS WE ARE OBEDIENT WE BECOME UNITED AND WE WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF, WE HAVE FREEDOM WHEN OBEDIENT, A MAN WHO RULES HIMSELF RULES MORE THAN A KING OF MANY MEN. CHARITY: PURE LOVE OF CHRIST, HIGHEST TYPE OF LOVE, SERVICE, IF YE HAVE NOT FAITH OR CHARITY YE HAVE NOTHING. HOPE: IT KEEPS US MOTIVATED TO KEEP GOING, FIRST STEP IN GAINING FAITH, HELPS CONQUER DISCOURAGEMENT. HUMILITY: GIVE UP OUR WILL AND DO GOD'S WILL, RECOGNIZE ALL WE HAVE IS OF THE LORD'S, WE ARE ALL GOD'S CHILDREN AND WE ARE NO BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE, PRIDE IS SATAN'S WAY.FAITH: LEADS TO ACTION, LOOK TO FAITH TO GUIDE YOU, IT BRINGS PEACE, FEAR IS THE OPPOSITE - BEING PREPARED CAN HELP YOU OVERCOME FEAR AND DEVELOP FAITH. DILIGENCE: CONVICTION TO DO THE WORK OF GOD, DISCIPLINE, SHOWING YOUR LOVE FOR THE SAVIOR IS DOING. KNOWLEDGE: ZEAL WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE IS LIKE FIRE WITHOUT LIGHT. VIRTUE: LET VIRTUE GARNISH OUR THOUGHTS UNCEASINGLY, POSITIVE MORAL QUALITY, REQUIRES CONSTANT ATTENTION. AFTER THE TALKS WE DID A TEACHING EXERCISE, ATE LUNCH AND THEN PRESIDENT FRY TALKED. WE HAD TESTIMONY MEETING. THERE ARE 5 ZONES AND WE HAD SEPARATE CONFERENCES THIS TIME(SMALLER GROUPS). THE TESTIMONY MEETINGS WERE THE BEST! MANY BORE THEIR TESTIMONIES THAT DON'T ALWAYS DO SO AND WITH EACH TALK - TESTIMONIES WERE BORNE. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE HEARING MISSIONARIES TEACH AND BARE TESTIMONY!!!!
