Zone Conference. We had a Zone Conference this week with President Benson. Besides the spiritual messages and training, there were special segments on teaching English, budgeting, and demonstration of helpful exercises with a pizza lunch in the middle of the day.

Elder Naef invited him to church on a chance encounter and he came. During a Sunday School class on Family History, he heard about tracing his family genealogy and its purpose in the plan of salvation.
His face lit up and he had an animated conversation with Elder Naef and members in the class. Batbayar had collected over 750 family names and he was connecting with a larger purpose for his endeavor.
|Batbayar brought his books and photographs with him|
Following his lead, his large family of 8 adult children are expressing interest in the church including one son in China.

He will get the priesthood soon and will be baptizing his wife and other family members as soon as they are ready. We are getting a detailed history of his conversion.
