Zone Conference in Wenatchee

2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (1)We left early this morning to travel to Wenatchee, where we found these faithful helpers, the Sainsburys and Brother Ott, already in the parking lot installing the new TIWIs.  All of our mission cars are swapping out the old for a new updated version.  Brother Ott and his installers have come from Utah to help with this.2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (2)Greeting our Elders and Sisters:2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (3)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (4)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (5)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (7)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (8)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (9)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (10)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (11)Going over the agenda with the Assistants:2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (13)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (14)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (15)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (16)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (17)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (18)Breakfast burrito:2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (19)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (20)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (21)Poor Elder Woodfield wasn’t feeling so great.2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (22)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (24)Elder Walker and Elder Harman are our Wenatchee Zone Leaders.  They conducted today.2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (23)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (30)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (25)We began at 9:00.2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (27)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (28)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (29)Brother Ott did a great training on vehicle safety.2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (32)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (34)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (35)Then Sister Call did a fabulous presentation on the power of one missionary.  She told everyone about Samuel Smith, Joseph’s brother, who only placed 2 copies of the Book of Mormon on his first mission.  But as she described what happened with those 2 copies, we got a feel for the power of this book.  Hyrum had no idea what would happen.  He considered his first mission a failure.2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (37)One of those 2 copies went to Phineas Young, and another went to John P. Green, who passed his copy on to Brigham Young.  Brigham Young joined the church after 3 years. 2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (38)Brigham Young converted Anson Call, who taught his son, who taught his son, who taught his son, who taught his son, who taught his son, our own Elder Call.  That first mission was the best success EVER to Sister Call!2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (39)If any of you watched Elder and Sister Bednar’s Face to Face Broadcast last night, another Call family from Afton, WYO was highlighted.  Elder Call found these relatives in his Call Family History book:  2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (40)2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (41)You just never know where the good will flow from just one conversation or one copy of scripture, shared with another!2017-9-12 ZC Wenatchee (42)
