August Zone Conference #6 (Paranagua)

We had a wonderful zone conference in Paranagua today.  Temperatures were in the mid to upper 80's with tons of sun.  You have got to love winter at the Parana coast. The conference was held in the Paranagua Ward building.  Elder Miranda conducted the meeting.  Sister Lysenko played the piano for us.  We received training from Sister Cordon (obediencia), Presidente (role of the Spirit in conversion and inspired questions), assistents (helping investigators prepare for sacred covenants), and the zone leaders (planning). (Front row, l to r: Sisters Lysenko, Castellano, Sister Cordon, Presidente Cordon; Second row: Elders Hobbs, Schmidt, Machado, Funk, Buerkle, Brino; Back row: Gomes, Gray, Miranda, and Hokanson.)
