Our zone conference was held on Thursday and it is always one of my favorite meeting to attend. We received guidance and counsel from both President and Sister Matsumori..

Two of my favorite elders are going home in a week and they will really be missed. Elder Kinne was in the first group in our wards when we arrived and is such an amazing young man.. the other elder going home in Elder Shurtleff who is in our apartments now & we love him so much..
