Two Zone Conferences Completed

As part of Zone Conferences this transfer, we are following the counsel found in D&C 88:77-78 to "teach each other the doctrines of the kingdom." We had each companionship share a "best practice" or something they have learned recently related to becoming a more effective missionary and fulfilling our purpose. We have included a few pictures of this in action below. Parents, see if you can find your missionary in these pictures of each zone!
Above is the Osaka North Zone. Pictured with us in all these pictures is President Iwaki, counselor in the Mission Presidency.

Here are some notes on the white board from our study of Jacob 5 and the doctrines of the restoration and gathering of Israel.

The Sisters from Abeno demonstrate and practice a finding skill on Sister McIntyre
Elders Everts and Everett teach some of the doctrines of Christ from the scriptures and Preach My Gospel.
Elders Cutler and Wiser teach the principle talking with everyone while demonstrating a Japanese handshake combined with bow.
Conferences were uplifting and a lot of fun. We have two more next week!

President McIntyre, thanks for sharing so much detail about your recent zone conferences. What a talented and creative group of missionaries you have! It was so fun to see the variety of ideas they came up with. We are so excited about the progress in the mission and especially in the Kyoto Zone!
