I have almost no time today to write! This is starting to seem like a pattern since I've been a zone leader. It's funny, because I feel like I'm doing more than ever, but I have less time to tell you guys about it!
One cool experience this last week is that on Sunday we were planning to try to give a Book of Mormon out in priesthood meeting for someone to give to a friend and have them report back on how the experience went. After we explained the challenge, we asked who wanted to volunteer this week. I've tried this in the past, and usually it's kindof a struggle to get people to volunteer. When we asked this time, we had tons of volunteers! So many that we had to go out to our car and grab a nearly full box of BoMs. We gave out the whole thing to people to give to their friends! That's almost 40 copies of the Book of Mormon! This is a great ward that's very missionary minded. The bishop especially likes us. His name is Bishop Nelson, and for some reason, he loves us way more than any previous missionaries. He's a great guy!
Sorry for the short letter this week! Love you all! Elder Excell
Q&A -- 8/22/2016
1.) Did you get your car fixed? How long did you have to go without? -- It's fixed. We were only without for about 24 hours, and most of that was p-day.2.) When is your next zone conference? How often do you have them? Does a zone leader have additional responsibilities during zone conferences? I would guess so, but I just honestly don't know very much about how mission leadership works. -- We have zone conference every 3 months. And every 6 weeks that's not a zone conference is interviews with the mission president where we receive training as a zone also. And about once a month we hold a ZTC (zone training conference) where just the zone leaders and sister training leaders give training to the zone.3.) What are you most looking forward to in the week ahead? -- We have exchanges with the AP's! It'll be my first exchange with the them, and it should be really cool.
