Grandma Chubby's Stuff

I hope you enjoy my postings. My husband and I are serving a mission in Romania and have had some wonderful adventures. Each of us have experiences in our life that make us different from that time forth. These experiences have done that for us.

Zone Conference in Cluj-Napoca

Zone Conference is a "Spiritual Shot in the Arm" for all of us. It is a time where we meet in one of the 6 cities we have zones and do a lot of teaching and sharing of testimonies. We usually begin at 9 A.M. and end around 4 P.M. Missionaries give talks, the zone leaders teach, the Assistants teach, Sora Ashby gives health tips, honors those with birthdays and also teaches. President Ashby ends the day with his instruction. We sing hymns, share testimonies and of course we eat! In this picture one of our newest sisters, Sora Andersen arrives with her companion, Sora Brandstatter from Oradeo to the Cluj Branch building where we held our conference. They were well prepared! They also won our "cleanest apartment" award, or the "Dirty Dustpan" prize!

A tradition that goes way back in this mission is that the President and his Assistants wear matching ties.....Romanian ties, that is! These good-looking ties for February are modeled by our equally good-looking leaders!

Yes, money does come into the equasion...Lunch has to be paid for and Elder Dabling is making sure Elder Lazoore gets his share of the dues. Lunch consisted of Saramale, (made by a generous member), vegetable lasagne (made by Sora Lund out of consideration for President Ashby), salads, bread, cake and ice cream! Not too bad! Missionaries are always happy when there is good food to eat!

And last of all, Elders, Poirier, Armstrong, Cook, Goodell and Gehmlich make sure they get some cake!
