Zone Conference in Zillah with The Dalles Zone and the Yakima Valley Zone

IMG_3466Today was our first of 4 Zone Conferences.  We met with The Dalles Zone and the Yakima Valley Spanish Zone in the beautiful Zillah building.  What an excellent, uplifting day we’ve had.  There was so much goodness and excitement in the room, as missionaries came together to learn and help lift each other.  There is such a feeling of family here.  We love being together, and we love what we do.  It’s hard work, but it’s the best thing ever.IMG_3463Beautiful.IMG_3465IMG_3468IMG_3471IMG_3472IMG_3473IMG_3474IMG_3476Today’s agenda:IMG_3480IMG_3481Welcome to Hna Green!IMG_3485IMG_3486IMG_3488IMG_3490President Reynolds and the Omans:IMG_3492IMG_3493IMG_3500IMG_3504IMG_3506Excellent training from our mission leaders and Pres Lewis:IMG_3522I love all the note-taking that goes on.IMG_3523IMG_3524IMG_3525IMG_3648IMG_3526More training:IMG_3529IMG_3530IMG_3534IMG_3541IMG_3544Bishops, Branch Presidents and Ward Mission Leaders from each area have been invited to come our zone conferences.  We are grateful for those able to break away from their busy schedules and come.IMG_3543IMG_3545It was SO Helpful to counsel with them and learn from them.IMG_3547Group Photo before lunch:IMG_3550The Zillah Relief Society Sisters prepared a taco salad feast for us!IMG_3560IMG_3561IMG_3562Oh, so good!IMG_3566IMG_3565IMG_3569IMG_3571IMG_3575IMG_3578Yak Valley Blue Tie Day:IMG_3582IMG_3585IMG_3586IMG_3588IMG_3589IMG_3592IMG_3593Happy Helpers:IMG_3596IMG_3597IMG_3599IMG_3600IMG_3607Lunch Ladies.  We are so grateful.IMG_3608Singing thanks:IMG_3610Every bit was consumed!IMG_3613Next we celebrated our 4 birthday boys:IMG_3614IMG_3615Elder Pendlebury had green candies to celebrate the mission being in the Green safety zone this last month with our driving!IMG_3617We have almost 60 youth from the local wards signed up to go on Mini Missions in August!  Elder Call is the master mind/scheduler for these.IMG_3622Then we had the zones meet separately so they might address the needs of their zones.IMG_3627IMG_3628IMG_3631IMG_3639IMG_3641IMG_3643IMG_3646IMG_3649This White (red) Elephant scripture case is Elder Bown’s favorite.IMG_3651Special musical number:IMG_3653IMG_3656Final Testimony from Elder Favilla:IMG_3657IMG_3663IMG_3665And then clean up and good byes.IMG_3667IMG_3668IMG_3669IMG_3671IMG_3676IMG_3677IMG_3679IMG_3683IMG_3684The Yak Valley Zone:IMG_3685IMG_3696IMG_3699IMG_3701IMG_3702IMG_3705IMG_3707IMG_3709Beautiful Zillah chapel:IMG_3710Adios, Elderes!IMG_3716All the photos taken today will be posted in an album on our Facebook page.
