Zone Conference #3 (South Zones) How we present the Gospel makes all the difference.

This cake represents the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
It is beautiful, inviting, and delicious!
Elder Hastings eagerly volunteered to receive the cake.
President Laycock began with a nice cold glass of milk to go with the cake.

President Laycock
carefully cut a nice serving of cake.
He lovingly placed it on a clean, white china plate.
He explained that the cake represents the delicious teachings
of the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He ceremoniously placed the yummy plate of cake on the table for Elder Hastings.
Elder Hastings eyes lit up. He was so excited to enjoy the cake!

Suddenly, President Laycock stuck his hand into the cake, grabbed a fistful, squished it through his fingers, and then splattered it all over Elder Hastings' face. A collective gasp of shock and disgust filled the room.

President Laycock explained that the Gospel is always the same...
...virtuous, lovely, of good report and praiseworthy...and of course, delicious.
How we serve it makes all the difference.

Hermana Gabrielle Garfield wrote home about the cake demonstration. It made quite an impact! So true, too.
