Yakima Mission zones and chocolate chip cookies

From "The Washington Yakima Mission" Blog
There are 9 Zones of missionaries in our new Yakima Mission.  Each Zone is responsible for a certain area and has 10-14 or so Elders and Sisters..  We’ve spent the last 8 days visiting these Zones all over the mission.  We’ll get to the last one next week.  We’ve been spending an entire day with each Zone, getting to know these fabulous missionaries.   While President Lewis interviews each, I get to visit with their companion and learn about their families and loved ones at home, a bit about their lives before they came, what led to their decisions to serve a mission, and anything else I can think of asking.  We visit with each for about 45 minutes, and we bring homemade cookies!  Wow, this has been an incredible week or so getting acquainted.  I am overwhelmed with the goodness of the missionaries serving here.  We could not have hand-picked a better group of young men and women.  If only each of you could hear their stories!Here are the names of the Zones in our Yakima Mission:
Moses Lake
The Dalles (Oregon)
Cascade (all Spanish-Speaking)
Yakima Valley (all Spanish Speaking)
