Zone Conference in Kampong Cham

3 Oct 2015

What a wonderful experience this was to attend the Zone Conference in Kampong Cham on 26 September 2015.   There are 12 Elders and 4 Sisters in Kampong Cham.  16 missionaries for a city approximately 120,000 people.  They are on the streets every day "contacting" which means they are striking up a conversation with people, if they will give you the time of day!

President/Sister Christensen, the 2 AP's, and 2 Sister Trainers taught some wonderful principle of the gospel.  President Christensen brought forth his Mission Vision, which is "To Be a Deliberate Disciple of Jesus Christ".   It was inspiring.
They all ride bad, old bikes, but if you get them new ones they would always be stolen and possibly hurt to get it.  New bikes would make our missionaries bright big targets. 
                                   The first missionaries we saw were Elder Hall and Elder Slavens.
                                                    Elder Lauritzen doing his part to help.
                                   President Christensen with his "let's get to it stride".
 Awww! Good man, Elder Hunt (on the left), handing over the receipts for Elder Leavitt while Elder Lauritzen looks on.
 Our marvelous Sisters!  Sister Sheffield, Sister Ren, Sister Semones, Sister Harris, Sister Uresk and Sister Spangler.  

                              A one on one conversation with Sister Christensen is always uplifting.
Eating ice cream with chop sticks was a challenge worth taking!  Even President and Sister Christensen took up the challenge! 

                                     Lunch was great but we all LOVED the chocolate ice cream!
And the day is over.  Everyone a better person for having been to the Zone Conference in 
Kampong  Cham.
