Zone Conference

 We had the privilege of attending Zone Conference on Friday, August 24th.  Wellington Ward was in charge on the luncheon and they did a wonderful job.  We had ham, coleslaw, green salad, potato salad, rolls and numerous desserts.
We had the opportunity of having two General Authorities from the Seventies and their wives visit us.  They are changing the Stake Presidency on Sunday and they have come from Utah and from Auckland to make the change.  Elder Craig Christensen and his wife are located in Utah and Elder Pearson and his wife are from Utah but currently living in Auckland presiding over the New Zealand and Australia and surrounding islands.  Most of the Senior Couples from the North Island were able to attending this Zone Conference.

They spoke at Zone Conference and then again at the Saturday evening meeting and then spoke at the Sunday session.  The current Stake Presidency consists of President George Harvey and his counselors President Turner and President Puke.  The new presidency which was announced at the meeting today are:  President Peter Thomson (Stake President)  President Quinton Howard (1st Counselor) and President Mendez (2nd Counselor).  President Howard is currently our bishop so we will get a new Bishop in the next week or so.  President Harvey had been in as Stake President for the past nine years so it was time for a change.
