We met with three zones -- Brandon, Sarasota, and Lakeland -- at the Brandon Stake Center for a zone conference. This was a bit different from previous zone conferences in that they asked the missionaries to arrive early and did the car inspections before the meeting. Everyone came early and the inspections were done so the meeting started at 9:30 am rather than the scheduled 10 am.
The basic theme of the meeting was for the missionaries to teach repentance and baptize converts. President Cusick emphasized the need to challenge investigators to accept baptismal dates.
We made our presentations on the two new missionary pamphlets. I think the presentations were OK. The missionaries were not as engaged in a discussion as I had hoped, but it was hard for them to discuss the pamphlets which they haven't seen. I did find a couple of issues with the presentation Powerpoint slides that I have changed for tomorrow's zone conference presentation.
