After lunch we all began gathering at the Kepatihan Building for the first of the interviews with our new president. The Sisters went first and then we transported them to their hotel and then back to Kepatihan for zone futsal.
OK, so you want to know what futsal is .... Well, its soccer, and the local missionaries had arranged an indoor field for their game.
On Saturday morning it was time to get down to business. Here are the missionaries who translated the proceedings for the bahasa Indonesia challenged. (L to R) Elder Lopis, Elder Mulia and Sister Situmorang.
Here is the Jawa Tengah (Central Java) Zone Leader, Elder Sumanungkalit conducting with President Christopher Donald and Sister Donald sharing the dais.
During the morning break, the elders and sisters enjoyed fresh, baked roti pisang (banana bread) and raisin-spice bread, compliments of Sister Greenway.
At lunch, there was the iconic Ayam Bekar (baked chicken from Pak John's). And ya know, you can't be serious all of the time! (L to R) Elder Wijaya, Elder Dalilis, Elder Suharjono, Elder Wiyadi, Elder Taulu, Elder Simanungkalit and Elder Yarkasi (front).
