Health Zone Conferences!

Yikes!!  It's our Health Zone Conferences!!
We are so excited to have our mission doctor, doctor Heder and his wife join us for a mission tour during our health zone conferences.
Today, 3-8-17 we started in Colima, with our Colima, Guzman and Manzanillo zones.
We had a great day together.
Check out some of our outstanding missionaries serving in these zones at this time!!



Doctor Heder's presentation



The whole group
outside on this gorgeous day!


Manzanillo zone


Colima zone 


Guzman zone 


Dividing into 4 groups to participate 
in our 4 health stations 








Our Sister Training Leaders helped us
with 4 health stations.  
Sister Osumi and Sister Ramirez 
prepared for and ran the 
First Aid Station



Each missionary made their own first aid kit.


Sister Lopez and Sister Calixto
ran our Misquote Station




 misquote nets for each missionary 


The sisters showed how to set up the nets, 
and passed out misquote repellent. 



Sister Garduno and Sister Flores 
manned the Neck Warmer Station


They helped each missionary
make their own neck warmer out
of a men's sport sock and some rice.





Sister Urbina and Sister White were in 
charge of the Smoothie Station! Yum! 




They had smoothies to taste and recipes 
to take and try on their own.

President Clayton's closing teachings


President's object lesson

President Clayton gave Elder Martinez some objects and 
asked him to create a pillar to hold or support the Book of Mormon in the air. 
He gave him a paper clip, a piece of paper, a rubber band, an eraser, 
and a pencil, and he let him go at it. 
Elder Martinez tried several times, wrapping the rubber 
band around the book, attaching the paper clip to 
the rubber band and holding the 
paper clip with the pencil... it didn't work,





President then said, can I help you?
He took the paper and rolled it up and
secured it with the rubber band.  He stood 
it on end and balanced the book on the paper
pillar. 




Like this pillar that is supporting the Book of Mormon, 
there are three pillars that support this mission.
They are 
 * Worthiness 
* Obedience
* Teaching the Doctrine of Christ by 
teaching repentance unto baptism 


Next, we met with our three Guadalajara zones on 3-9-17
Union, Lomas, and Independencia 

Here are our wonderful district leaders, zone leaders 
and the sister training leaders 
serving here in Guadalajara 
In all three areas we met first with our 
leadership council, while their companions
either went on divisions or met with dr Heder
with personal concerns or questions about their health.

This time, with this group, President Clayton gave 
Elder Gomez some objects and asked him to create a 
pillar to hold or support the Book of Mormon in the  air. 
He gave him a paper clip, a piece of paper, a rubber band, 
an eraser, and a pencil, and Elder Gomez went to work.




almost....

President again said, can I help you?
He took the paper and rolled it up and
secured it with the rubber band.  He stood 
it on end and balanced the book on the paper
pillar. 



President Clayton's final teaching.
Like this pillar that is supporting the Book of Mormon, 
there are three pillars that support this mission.
They are:
 * Worthiness 
* Obedience
* Teaching the Doctrine of Christ by 
teaching repentance unto baptism 



And finally, our Health Zone Conference
