August 3, 2016 Zone Confrence and Splits!

Week Update
Highlight #1 

Thursday we had Zone Conference, We had a lot of different trainings which were all pretty neat, we had the guy in charge of all the church's fleet vehicles come out and check out all the cars we have in the mission and he gave us a training it turns out the mission spent some pretty big bucks on preventable repairs on the cars so he told us to be careful. We had a training on the Book of Mormon as well and all other sorts of goodies. All in all it was a good meeting. 

Highlight #2

Saturday I got to go on a split with Elder Frei, he is my Zone Leader up here. He is a really good guy. We had some crazy shenanigans happen while we were on a split so we ended up doing a lot of Zone leader stuff. It was one of the wildest splits on my mission but we had a good time. We had some good chats. 
Highlight #3

While on the split we had their ward correlation with Ray Smith, I don't know if I've talked about him before but he basically is like Santa for the missionaries, He travels around the mission and hooks up missionaries where ever they are. Anyways he is the ward mission leader in their ward so he took us to lunch at Red Robin which was pretty fun. I got a tasty hamburger and had great conversation.
Highlight #4

This week our mission got selected to be a test mission for a new style of nightly planning. Which is pretty neat! We aren't going out of preach my gospel but instead we basically have a glue in for a new style of planning. This new planning really emphasizes helping your investigators progress and seems to be less key indicator focused over all I really like it. We focus on one person at a time and discuss what they need. I think it should be really effective.
Highlight #5

We got to take the car in this week and we got some sweet new Bridgestone’s on it. During Car inspections at Zone Conference we got informed that we needed to get new tires an oil change and a new safety inspection. So a couple of days later we took it into the Firestone because the church has a fleet deal there. Anyways it took a while so elder Matson and I wandered around the area trying to talk to some people.
Highlight #6 

We had zone meeting on Monday and it was good it went super long which sort of stunk, It went for three hours when it's usually a hour and a half, it sort of stunk but it was whatever. 
All in all this was a pretty good week. Today we are probably headed to the county fair which should be pretty fun I think! Hope you all have a great week!
