2008_11_26 Quevedo Sur Zone Meeting

These are photos of a Zone Meeting with the Quevedo Sur Zone on November 11, 2008. Elder Goode sent them home on a CD just before Christmas.


  1. Fun pictures! I think it would be great to go and share the gospel with a bunch of people my own age. It looks like a lot of fun. I've been really impressed with Curtis and his testimony and excitement about being a missionary.

  2. We are very impressed with his dedication to go and serve also. I believe he is having a good time doing it. He always seems to be smiling in the pictures. However he is not a very emotional kid, so it is hard to tell what he is really thinking or feeling. He doesn't complain or get all excited, just goes about things in a steady way.

    When Michelle and Jeff were sealed in the Logan temple, the sealer used a scripture in Alma to describe how each of us should be about the gospel. It is found in Alma 38:2-3.

    "And now, my son, I trust that I shall have great joy in you, because of your steadiness and your faithfulness unto God; for as you have commenced in your youth to look to the Lord your God, even so I hope that you will continue in keeping his commandments; for blessed is he that endureth to the end.

    I say unto you, my son, that I have had great joy in thee already, because of thy faithfulness and thy diligence, and thy patience and thy long-suffering among the people of the Zoramites."

    The sealer talked of Alma's son Shiblon and told us that he should be a great example to all of us. We should pattern our lives after him. I had never paid much attention to Shiblon, but when I came home and read the scripture, I immediately thought of Curtis. He is faithful, diligent, patient and long-suffering. He has been a good son all of his life and dedicated to the gospel. He has been a great example to all those around him. He has kept the commandments from his youth and was prepared to go and serve a mission. He has brought great joy to his parents. He is steady and faithful unto God. We are so very proud of him and know that he is a good missionary and he will become a great missionary as he continues to work and study.
