Ashburn Zone Conference 7-09
Today was our 6th zone conference. It was in the zone farthest north in a beautiful area called Ashburn. We had another very successful conference. The zone leaders are Elders Esplin and Redford and again very confident, good leaders. They led a great council discussion. We had a wonderful meal prepared by the sweet RS sisters. They even decorated the tables and had nice tableclothes and everything. They fed us taco salad in tortilla bowls, fruit, and lots of desserts. It is always fun to sing to the sisters and hear about their missionary connections. One sister said she was a convert and encouraged the missionaries to return to doors that were closed to them, because that is how she was converted. The Iron Man award went to Elder Nielson who has been a bike for 11 months now. good job! This zone includes: Elders Nielson, Jones, Lee, offer, Fukui, Bullock,Esplin, Redford, Nelson, Grundvig, Smith, Freeland, Loppe, and Simmons, and Sisters Le Sueur, Bennett, Jordan, and Banks. Good job Ashburn!
