Zone Leader Council and Zone Meeting

Macon Zone Meeting is held at the Macon Stake Building in Macon.

Zone Leader Council is held at the mission home. This picture was taken in the back yard.

Zone Leader Council is held every six weeks on the Tuesday following transfer week. The 14 zone leaders from the seven zones travel into the mission home for a day of training. They then take the training to their zones on the day the President does individual interviews. This takes place over a two week period. Zone Leader Council was held on Tuesday, September 11, and the first zone meeting was in Macon on Wednesday. The focus of Zone Leader Council this time was on finding, as it says in Preach My Gospel, "Nothing happens in missionary work until you find someone to teach." We hope all of you are helping the missionary effort by helping the missionaries in your area find people to teach. A companionship of sisters is also invited to Zone Leader Council because the sister's input is so valuable. The assistants and the car and media elders from the office also attend. The pictures above show those attending Zone Leader Council (seated in the back yard) and some candids of the Macon Zone Meeting (held at the church) during break time. President is on the road traveling to the other zones (Douglas, Albany North, Albany South) the rest of this week, and then on to Augusta, Savannah North and Savannah South next week.
