Coming and Going!

Welcome, Elder Hartley!
We are happy to have you as part of the
Nevada Las Vegas West Mission  family!

Elder Christensen and Elder Justice left the mission a couple of weeks early. Elder Christensen was scheduled to have surgery on his shoulder and  Elder Justie was to start school just a few days after getting home.  We wish them both the best!

Zone Conferences -- May 2012

I pushed a wrong button and accidently pulled this picture up and I don't have time to
put it back where it goes......sorry!
For the updates just look past this entry!

It is Zone Conference time again. Zone Conferences are held quarterly. The conferences are a time to bring multiple zones together for instruction and training.  Car inspections take place, new missionaries introduce themselves and those who will be leaving before the next Zone Conference have the opportunity to share their testimonies. Lunch is provided by a local Relief Society.
  There are nine zones in the mission. Four in the north area -- Reno, Reno North, Fallon and Carson City. There are five in the south area -- Tule Springs, Lone Mountain, Red Rock, Las Vegas and South.

Elder Mathis and Elder Spencer training on teaching records

As part of our training  we continured to do role playing. The role playing took place in the   'living room' of the investigator. The lesson "The Gospel of Jesus Christ" was taught. There are six segments to the lesson. For every segment we called a different companionship to come up and teach . They had no advance notice and they had five minutes to teach the information. The investigators were Elder and Sister Zobell, with President Black as the member present.  It was an incredible experience to listen to the missionaries teach. Each companionship did a wonderful job.

Bible videos from lds.org.  After the discussion we heard  testimonies from
