This past week included Zone Conference. Much of the conference was conducted and taught by the Assistants and the Zone Leaders. That is not only a good responsibility for them, they put a lot of thought and prayer into their presentation, and they were both enjoyable and thought-provoking. Below is a picture of our missionaries at Zone Singing. It's a great way to meet people and visit with them.

We want you to know this week that we know that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth in our day. We are grateful to have a living prophet leading the church under the direction of Jesus Christ.

We know that our Heavenly Father is watching over us and is pleased when we live His commandments. Our loving Heavenly Father has given us a beautiful plan – the plan of salvation to help us on our way in this earthly life. We lived as spirits before this earth was formed. Now we have bodies, and after the resurrection our bodies and spirits will be reunited again forever. Not only is all this true – but we know about it! How great is that! Add to that temple covenants and eternal promises and we have it all!

Everyone is on vacation! I took some fun pictures for the grandkids this week, but not much else. This picture shows a new money making scheme: braiding extensions into someone's hair at the beach.

Stay healthy, happy, and wise in your beliefs.

We love you all,
Anziano and Sorella Sommerfeldt
