Dec 13th - Cyprus zone conf
As for this week, I flew to Cyprus on Friday morning around 6AM. (had to get up at 3:30) Then we made out way to Limessol for an exchange. While there I got to have a lesson with a man named Jonny. He is middle eastern but Christian. So we wanted to figure out why he hasnt been coming to church and how much interest he has. So I listened for a while as the other Elder taught and tried to help him. then as he was beginning to see that he wasnt making progress, I decided to just start asking questions. It totally turned things around. We got him to fully see the importance of everything and committed him to baptism and to come to church. It was a great lesson and the spirit was really strong. Its amazing how much a few simple questions can help you to get to the source of the problem.
Elders Kennedy, Fairbanks, Woodger, Cook and not forgetting Elder Loynes had the birthday song and treat this Zone Conference. Thank you Elder Loynes for that very 'special' pose. Well done Elder Lauener you almost made it into every picture!
