Our last zone activity was with Camarillo English and Spanish and Newbury Park zones.
Our focus for the activities is to remind us that we need to be led by the Spirit as we find and teach.
We found saying "go over there"or "go straight"are not the best ways in being directed. When you're blindfolded, where is over there?
It was a beautiful day and I loved the clouds.
This bag had the treat of fruit snacks. The object was for Elder James to listen to the sound. As it got louder, then he was going in the correct direction. The sound was clapping; although two missionaries were chosen (without Elder James' knowledge) to distract him. In the four different zone activities, that did affect the decision of where to go for some.
During this part of the hike there were no blindfolds so they could enjoy the scenery.
The Senior couples joined us.
By being tied to your companion and one being blindfolded, listening and working together in unity is a must.
This is the bandana that everyone received to use as a blindfold. It was quite funny as we have many BYU fans and they thought we were handing out a University of Utah bandana. It says Salvation University and
The Wise Still Seek Him.
The Wise Still Seek Him.
After hiking we drove to the Newbury Park Stake Center where the cars were inspected and we had lunch and finished with our activities.
See if you can find your missionary.
The missionaries really enjoyed the EDPEP in finding and talking WITH them.
The popsicles got too cold and Elder Harper suffered from it. His tongue has recovered after a day.

There are different ways of receiving impressions. The above activity used action, visual, and sound.
