This past week was filled with zone conferences. We hold 4 different ones, one for each Stake. All the zones serving in a particular Stake attend. It is a day full of training, testimony, music, and inspiration. The missionaries come prepared to learn and be taught, and to interact together to edify one another. I especially loved this week because we were able to see all our missionaries. I usually left the mission home just after the kids walked to the bus and stayed until around 2:30 each day so I was home when my kids walked in the door. The zone conferences go from 9-3:30, with bagels and juice served at 8:15 am. I am thankful to Elder and Sister Gardner this week and our office Elders, Elders Dutson and Casper, for taking care of providing breakfast and lunch each day.
