Zone Conference with our General Authority Seventy

Our Zone Conference picture.  Back row:  Elders Baker, Christiansen, Brockbank, Mukadi, Lavering, Porter and Johnson.  Middle row:  Elder Cook, Elder Ntambwe, Sister and President Cook.  Front row:  Sister Cook, Elder and Sister Wheatley.  Elder Wheatley went looking for someone to take the picture and came back with the man who manages the water well across the street.  It was apparent he had never held a camera before and each time he took a picture, he moved the camera.  Then a young man walked by and could see the problem and stepped up to help - voila! We got the picture, although a little crowded, hopefully you can see everyone - we had to open the gate and have the person taking the picture out in the road.

On the right, Sister Cook receiving the gift for Elder Cook from Freré Felix.

 Freré Felix, Sister (Elder) Cook, Sister (President) Cook, Freré Felix's wife, and 4 of his children,

Elder Johnson helping with lunch dishes at Zone Conference - no matter how simple the meal, there are always dishes to be done. We had pulled pork sandwiches, apples, baked beans, potato salad and cookies - all of which were made ahead of time so no one would miss out on any of Zone Conference.
In preparation for Zone Conference, the elders and Wheatleys got together and helped each other with 'deep cleaning' projects at the elders' apartments, like windows and patios and porches....then we had lunch together!
