Zone Leader Council April 1, 2011
We held Zone Leader Council on the 1st in Kobe. The council this month consisted of many new zone leaders and several former Tokyo missionaries.The day started early in the morning with a hike up the mountain for a devotional. The Kobe and office elders also joined us for the morning. We all gathered in front of the mission home to start our hike.Before heading up the mountain we stopped at the Maya Cable Car station for a picture on the steps.Everyone enjoyed the view of Osaka and Kobe Bay and city from the mountain. While at our view spot we heard a few testimonies and sang High On a Mountain Top and our Kobe Mission Theme song. Elder Crapo also treated us to a rendition of A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief on his harmonica while we overlooked the bay.We attempted a group picture and almost got everyone looking in the right direction. It was beautiful weather and a great day for a hike. The cherry blossoms were just barely starting to bloom. After the hike, we met in the Kobe church for our meetings.
