Zone Conference

This week was a lot of planning! it was zone conference yesterday so thats why my email was late.
we went on exchanges with sister Brown and Sister Kotter. they are awesome and doing some great things!
Saturday we had interviews with president and he is awesome. love that man. he jokes around a lot but its great!
Sunday we taught 3rd hour with the elders about missionary work with members and it was so good! cried a lot but its all good. President stacey in the mission presidency was there and said it was great also said that when i bore my testimony about it. it pearced the members hearts he is awesome.
Monday was zone conference so it was awesome. we learned a lot about convert retention so cool statistics going on if convert go to the temple in 2  months they are way more likely to stay active but if they go in 1 month 92% will stay active for the rest of their lives how neat is that?? so much knowledge and i just love being around the missionaries!
hope you all have a great week love you!
