Zoned In on Missionary Work

There's nothing like zone conference!  It's the biggest gathering in the mission except for
Christmas when we get half the mission at a time.  Everyone is excited to see each 
other and to learn new things.  

The Moreno Valley Zone

The La Sierra Zone

Recent birthdays.  My how you've grown!

Guys in ties...


Here are Brother and Sister Egbert.  They were called many
years ago to help out in the Riverside Dear Branch.  They
liked it, learned to sign, and have stayed.  They are very
generous with their time in our mission too, translating for 
our missionaries during training.

The Corona Zone

The Riverside Zone

The Hemet Zone

The San Jacinto Zone

Getting creative with dessert!

The sisters in aprons in this picture (is tucked behind Sister 
Jensen) have served together for eight years in the stake
Relief Society of the Hemet Stake.  They have served about 
thirty-five zone conference luncheons to our missionaries
over the years.  The tables are always decorated and the 
lunches are special.  They put a lot of love into caring for
the elders and sisters.  

What does Elder Sy see?

The Lake Elsinore Zone

The Menifee Zone

After we take the group pictures, we usually take a shot
when people can make faces, etc.  We don't usually publish
them, but thought we'd put one in for "history's sake."

More birthdays.

We usually remind everyone to hurry in for zone photos so we
can have lunch.  Guess who they were waiting for today...
