Zone Conference

It was zone conference this week.  The meetings lasted from 9:00 in the morning until 5:00.  It was really good.  Our Mission President is a former Seminary teacher and Coordinator.  He keeps things moving.  One of the things he taught was "Put on the whole armor of God"  There were several missionaries that he used to demonstrate the strength that comes from doing the right things.  Elder Dibb even got to throw a paper ball at them, but they used their swords and shields to ward off the attack.  You should read the account and talk about these important things in your families.  It is found in Ephesians 6:10-20.

We went back to the market to find a heater.  Our second one blew out and it is really cold at night.  Things are stacked all over at the market.  This week was a short week for going out because it was Carnivales.  The young missionaries had to stay in for 4 days.  We could go out, but made sure we were in before dark.  It is a lot like Halloween.  People were dressed in costumes and the kids threw water balloons, squirted with huge water guns, and sprayed some kind of foam on everyone.  There were streamers all over the place.  We spent most of the day in the office trying to straighten out the records that we are in charge of now.  We are getting them organized, poco a poco.
