Zapata District Conference

    We have seven Branches on the east side of the Mission that comprise the Zapata District; they are Zapata, Palenque, Candelaria, El Triunfo, Balancan, Tenosique and Benemerito.  They are all spread out over a great distance on the east side of the Mission, but they all come together twice a year for the District Conference in Zapata.  President Haws is the "Stake President" over the District, so the Conference is under his direction.  At the Conference on May 14th we had 480 people in attendance, we had to bring in all the chairs we could find and we had some people sitting in the foyer.  But the Spirit was great and there were wonderful messages and there is a feeling of strength that comes from gathering that many Saints together.  We had 26 missionaries there and many investigators!  The members from the farthest distances came in buses and Convees together, it was a great day for all that attended.
