Service with a Smile - Our Zone Leaders

We have had a full day.
It started with these Elders in the office for our 
Zone Leader Concilio.
We started at 9 am with training and ended up at the 
mission home for lunch at 2:00
And then we had a service project from 3 to 6 pm.
Some of these Elders travel 6 and 8  hours to get to us.
Some travel 2 to 3.
They are really tired before we even start.
Half way through the training 
I make them sing some upbeat songs.
My favorite calling in the church was primary chorister
So thank goodness the Elders love this music too.

After a grand lunch by Lucy and Alicia
There was a quick change of clothes and 
we went to the California Chapel
 These Elders are always ready to work
I can't tell you how impressed I am with each one.
 The ZL's were given instructions and assigned to different chapels
 And then they were off to their assignments.
Some stayed at the California Chapel.
 Some were weeding.
Some were posing
 Some were mowing, some were trimming.

These Elders were at the Palermo Chapel
 If you look closely in the grass you can see the word
I wonder who was mowing this lawn.
He's sitting on the top of the hill.

 Here we have our trusty Assistant Elder Nichols
who was parched.
He was digging up flower beds.
I am so glad he was wearing a hard hat.
Above is our secretary of records, Elder Barinas
And below is Elder Mayorga...
Their group was at the Primavera Chapel

This is part of the crew at the Laureles Stake Center

Below is the crew that was with President Turk in Esperanza
These Elders did some great things today.
They did about 3 weeks worth of work in one afternoon.

Then the real work begins.  They have a full night of teaching

WOW!  You are Super Men!
