Zone Conference Day 2
On Wednesday March 11th, we got up early, tried to beat the Johannesburg early morning commute and get to Bedfordview to greet the Vaal, Benoni, Bedfordview Zones for an 8 am start time.
It is a big effort for all the missionaries to negotiate traffic and be there on time for the pre-session. This pre-session is a talk by President Uchtdorf that we heard at the mission President Seminar last June.
This talk primes the Elders for the sessions that begin at 9 am.

|Started our day in the chapel with an opening session with President Dunn. He discussed a great case study called Sister Susan Fulcher.|
Everyone enjoyed this topic as it gave many ideas on how to work more closely and positively with members. President Dunn is a great facilitator and he makes presentations run so smoothly.
