Email December 5, 2016 – Elder Isaac Kenneth Burton
It´s been another great and super busy week!! This week was completly filled with praparacion for the zone conferences and actually doing them. And wow, the two that we did turned outed so awesome!!
Last week Elder Tenhoeve and I had been thinking a lot about how we wanted to teach in the zone conferences. Zone conferences are super important becasue it is the best chance we have to motivate and help the missionaries. We had already decided with president the topics, but we were struggling with ideas for how we wanted to present them. So we were just thinking and thinking and praying and putting a bunch of things on paper of things that could motivate our missionaries and finally the inspiration hit us. What is one of the most spiritual and life changing moments that every missionary has expirienced? And that a lot have on film? The answer: opening your mission call. We decided to send an email to all the parents of the missionaries asking for a video or at least a picture of their missionary opening their call. We weren´t sure if we would get many responses. But wow, missionary parents are the best, we got so many excited responses from so many parents. We ended up making a twenty minute video of the different misionaries in the mission opening their calls. All to the best mision in the world of Argentina Buenos Aires South. And every day we are still recieving more videos to add. We showed the video to two zones this week and it was awesome. It was one of the most spiritual zone conferences of my mission and it enthused the missionaries a ton. Even President and his wife were crying. We are super excited to keep going with the conferences this next week :)
Well thats pretty much been my week, it was great! I hope you are all well and happy :) Have a great week!!
Les quiero, Elder Burton
