Porto Air Race

In September, the Red Bull Air Races came to Porto.  Some of the missionaries went down to the Douro River to do some contacting and see the show.

September Zone Conferences

For all three of our separate zone conferences we focused on working with members, teaching the less active and part member families, the importance of the area books as a Liahona for the missionary work in their area, and with post-it notes, remembering to thank the members for their support.  Our missionaries continue to be such good examples of the work here in the Porto mission, and they make it so much fun.  On Madeira, the whole zone practiced and presented a musical number and also organized a hike to the only part of the island that doesn't look like a tropical paradise.  In Porto, the judging of the area books was certainly a surprise when the sisters area book took first place.  And in Coimbra, the zone meetings afterwards turned into relay games with spoons and eggs, and fun discussions of what they need to do to be successful missionaries.
