There are 72 missionaries in Liberia now. That is so wonderful! These 72 will be the beginning of the Liberia Monrovia Mission starting July 1, 2013.

Lunch is one of the best things about zone conferences. This was the first time all four zones were together so many missionaries hadn't seen each other in a long, long time. President Roggia talked about "Enduring to the End". We also showed the missionaries the videos of West Africa that the Church has recently put out. This is our last zone conference in Liberia. It was sad to say goodbye but so wonderful to see everyone's smiling faces.
The next post will be more of the new missionaries' arrival last week.
