Zone Conference in Firenze

Today we had a Zone Conference in Florence with the Bologna Zone, Firenze Zone and part of the Verona Zone.  President and Sister Wolfgramm and the Assistants did the training and it was great.  We are always so grateful that we get the chance to attend these meetings and feel the Spirit of this great work.

 The Bologna Zone and a few missionaries from the Verona Zone.
 The Senior couples:  Sister and Elder Tonon, Sister and Elder Jefferies, Sister and Elder Capece and Sister and President Wolfgramm.
 Elder and Sister Tonon started their mission two weeks ago and are serving in Florence and Prato.  They are members from Torino.  When I was a missionary in Torino in 1969 they were in the branch there and I attended their wedding and reception.  They have served in the Swiss Temple and he is a Patriarch.  On two of our trips to Italy, we stayed in their home.  It was so good to renew acquaintance with them and talk about the early days of the Church in Torino.  They have four children, all of whom served missions, and they have eight grandchildren with one on the way. 
 Sorella Jefferies and Sorella Wolfgramm.
After a full day of meetings and training, we decided that we had earned some delicious gelato.

  1. The Tonon's! You'll have to tell them hello from me, if they remember me, and let them know that staying with them was my favorite part of our trip! That's neat that they are serving in the same mission as you. On another note, I'm loving Mom's face in the last picture! :)
