Zone Conference June 2015

On June 9 and June 12 we had 2 terrific days of Zone Conference. We met in Manhattan on Tuesday the 9th with the Manhattan South, Manhattan Central, Manhattan North, Kingsbridge and Olmstead Zones. We introduced the new Mission President and family to the mission. David and Rebecca Smith will be amazing leaders in this mission. We had great talks on both days about our mission theme; Loyal to the CORE. Our missionaries talked about Courage, Obedience, Reverence and Effort.
We showed these shoes to our missionaries. Our son Peter wore these on his mission and they certainly dispay some amazing effort. After seeing a photo of these shoes, Sister Stephanie Steiner, Elder Daniel Stainer's mom sent this quote to us,
"I think that only the boy who wore shoes like that knows what they really represent. It's more than miles; more than the tough, rocky, dirt roads of a mission. They represent love and change and tears and hope and prayers and joy and homesickness and service and sorrow and commitment and laughter and peace. They are a 'silent journal'. As mothers and fathers we know some of the stories, but I think that most of them are known only between the missionary and the shoes and are too special to share. To me, the shoes do speak words, I hear them say, 'This is MY testimony and MY witness and I shared it with all who would listen.' May Heavenly Father bless His children who wear those shoes."
We are grateful for all our missionaries who display effort in everything they do.
Elder Gore conducted the meeting today.

Elder Reid gave a beautiful talk about the atonement.

Consecrated missionaries give it their all! Be able to say, "I gave it my all!" Doctrine and Covenants 123:17;
"Therefore, dearly beloved brethren (and sisters), let us cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and for his arm to be revealed."
As a fully consecrated missionary we need to lock our arms with those who have gone before and serve together with the strength of prophets and apostles.
