Our First Lubumbashi Zone Conference

We are a part of the Lubumbashi Zone.  These are photos taken at our first Zone Conference.  The center front couple is President and Sister Gary Packer.  To their left are Elder and Sister Brent Jameson and then we are seated to the right. There are 28 other missionaries in this zone pictured. There are a total of 58 missionaries in this mission currently.  In the next 3 or 4 months, there will be 32 new missionaries sent here.  The gospel is growing in Africa.
The young missionaries are all native of Africa. They know the gospel well and are very effective teachers.  They have impressed us very much! There are many baptisms, confirmations and ordinations happening each week. They are called from Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Kinshasa, Mbuji Maya, Madagascar and other neighboring communities. They are wonderful representatives of Jesus Christ.  They have powerful testimonies and great understanding.   The Congo is now  two missions: Kinshasa and the Lubumbashi.  

 The four Sister Missionaries that you see here add great talent and insight to the mission.  They are able to touch people in new ways and are respected by all.

At the Zone Conference, the Sister sang several hymns in beautiful four part harmony.
