At the training meeting for ward councils with Elder Zwick two weeks ago, President Cusick passed out small packages of M&Ms to those in attendance and referred to the M&Ms and Members and Missionaries. To help remind the ward leaders of that concept, he has asked the missionaries to take some additional M&Ms to their ward councils this Sunday. We were given the M&Ms for the Sarasota Zone and asked to get them to the zone leaders to distribute to the missionaries before Sunday.
The problem with that is that the Sarasota Zone is geographically widespread. And the Zone Leaders live at the northern end of the zone. So we found the sisters missionaries from Sebring at the transfer meeting and asked them to take the M&Ms back to their district leader. We delivered the M&Ms for the district that meets in Bradenton to the district leader who lives in our apartment complex. That of course was easy. What was left was the Venice District with missionaries who live in Sarasota, Venice, and Port Charlotte. So we took the assignment upon ourselves to deliver the M&Ms to those missionaries. It took us about 4 hours of driving time to complete the circuit. I hope the ward councils appreciate the M&Ms and that they have some impact.
