Multi-Zone Conferences

Every three months we hold zone conferences where we mostly do training. When we first arrived we would hold 7 conferences, each with 1 or 2 zones together. Going from Chaco to Corrientes to Formosa to Misiones to Santa Fe was pretty exhausting but we made it all work in a month.

When the Mission divided in July 2013 and we no longer had the province of Misiones, it looked like the zone conference schedule would be a little easier. But with the increase in missionaries...we went from 190 pre-division to 134 post-division to 250 by December 2013, we now have 16 zones!

So, we now hold 4 multi-zone conferences and May is zone conference month. I post a picture on Instagram of each zone conference (user name: rayheyman). That way parents and friends can, with the help of a magnifying glass, see their missionaries. Here is an example of a multi-zone conference from our last series of conferences:

For those who want to mark the day your missionary will be on Instagram, here is the schedule:

Tuesday, May 6: Roque Saenz Peña 1 and 2, Río Paraná 2

Tuesday, May 13: Resistencia 1, 2, 3 and 4

Thursday, May 22: Corrientes 1 and 2, Río Paraná 1, Paso de los Libres

Tuesday May 27: Formosa 1, 2 and 3, Ibarreta and Clorinda.

Why so spread out? Because every weekend we have either a Stake or District Conference to attend and on May 19 we have the Mission Leaders' Council.

This month we will also have two very special guest speakers at our Mission Leaders' Council...our daughters Jennifer and Allison, who will be here visiting.

As you might guess when you pair these two women with their mother there tends to be a lot of laughter. Although my main role will be chauffeur, I am looking forward to hearing the laughter!!!
