Consejos with Zone Leaders and Assistants

The day started at 10:00 with a brunch- sandwiches, facturas (pastries), banana, juice. We then have a meeting and training from 10-3 which consists of inspirational talks by Hermana and President, and then training by the Assistants. We jump started March Madness with the Assistants video of them in uniform playing basketball. It was great. March Madness is a copy of the Sweet 16, Elite 8, and Final 4. Guess what they have to end up with- you're right 4 baptisms. We end with testimonies. Then they are all driven to our home where they partake of my famous tacos! Homemade salsa, guacamole, shredded beef, and chocolate brownie cake and ice cream. It takes hours to prepare, but it is worth it. The end results is shown below.

Can I just say how proud I am of these young men. The Presidents loves these young men like they were his own.
As you can see, the jello, pasta salad, fruit salad, ranch dressing bowl, are all wiped clean. The only thing left are a few chopped tomatoes. They ate 4 kilo's of beef, two full brownie cakes, and 2 kilo's of icecream, along with all the fixings. If it wasn't so fun to see them eat, I wouldn't make that much.

Nice Mother. What are the faces on the wall behind the food! There is not anything left!
