Christmas Zone Conference 2012 in Sumter

Elder Peterson was the star of the video on a Spiderman Bike
with training wheels.
December 20, 2012 was a great day. Florence and Charleston Zones had a Christmas Zone Conference in our ward building in Sumter, SC. Each District performed a skit or showed a video they had produced. Sumter District made a video, and we had so much fun. Our ward prepared a meal of barbeque sandwiches, cole slaw, baked beans, potato salad and dessert. Sooo good.   
Sumter District proved that we are a biking mission. Elder Abankwa,
Elder Overfelt, Elder Wakefield, Sister Wakefield, Elder Dixon,
and Elder Peterson lined up and ready to roll.

Our friend, Brother Gordon Jackson, was such a good sport to
help us out by being our "street contact" in the video.
