We were so very blessed to have Elder Ballard come to address us in Guatemala. Those that were close to the capital came by bus and those outside the capital area had the meeting transmitted via closed circuit.
Elder Ballard spoke about putting forth the effort to study and prepare to better teach the gospel. "You have to work hard to become (a) master Gospel teacher. It doesn't just happen. You must never lose sight as to how precious God's children are." The focus was on Finding, Teaching and Baptizing. "You've been sent out to baptize!"
President Torres conducted the meeting where we had a choir of 20 missionaries sing a musical number, a medley of "I'll go where you want me to go, Called to serve, and Armies of Helaman." sung in English, Spanish and Ke'chi.
The missionaries left visibly thrilled to have been in the presence of an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. (see right for slide show)
