As of July we now have specialized training for the missionaries that encompasses a seminar for the Zone and District leaders, as well as those who are trainers along with their new trainees. This seminar last for 3-4 days and is designed to help the missionaries learn how to more effectively teach by the spirit and teach people, not lessons. These are held during the day and they practice what they have learned at night. President accompanies selected couples of missionaries in each location. These will be conducted every 2 months. We are in a period where we need to baptize more of the investigators that are found weekly. This directive addresses this need.
We now have Zone Conference once every quarter. Interviews will be held in conjunction with Zone Conferences. Because of the logistics of our mission, we have decided to go to the missionaries rather than have the missionaries come into the capital for this training. Therefore, we will be traveling more than previously.
Sept we conducted seminars in Peten, Coban, Polochic (Senahu) and the capital. The end result is well worth the endeavor, by helping our missionaries become better teachers so they can, find, teach, and baptize more of Heavenly Father's precious children. Thus is our purpose here in Guatemala. Thank you for your support.
