This month we had a sports day for the first half of our zone conference. Activities were based on a team decathlon, with liberal game variations for actual olympic events. A fun time was had by all! To end the day, we changed into missionary attire and held a brief session of training and testimony. Perfect fall weather in lovely surroundings helped make it a very enjoyable day!
(I have about 400 photos to go through and will post a slideshow shortly!)
