Guatemala City North Mission

...let us labor diligently: for if we should cease to labor, we should be brought under condemnation for we have a labor to perform whilst in this tabernacle of clay, that we may conquer the enemy of all righteousness, and rest our souls in the kingdom of God. Moroni 9:6

Zone Conference with Pres Christensen

This month we were blessed to have a member of the Area Presidency with us during our Zone Conferences. President Christensen and his wife presided and conducted most of the Zone Conferences. We also had Elder Bosa who is an Area Seventy share some insights on the importance of keeping records. This was emphasized since the missionaries are the first to fill out the baptismal records that become the convert’s membership account. (See the slide show for more photos.)

Training for our District Presidents

Here in the mission we have 6 Districts. Our objective is not just to help them become stakes, but more importantly, to help them bring souls unto Christ. Some of the leaders in these units have been members of the church only a few years, thus they need to be trained. We had just such training were the Presidents spent two days in the Capital City in seminars in the Mission Office. Some drove as far as 11 hours to get to the training. They were fed at the mission home and this all cumulated with a wonderful session in the Temple. It was a delight for all of us to be engaged in learning to do our duty with all of our might, mind and strength, helping to build up Zion here in Guatemala
