Missionary Leadership Council-Monday October 3, 2016/San Sebastián

We enjoyed Missionary Leadership Council with our faithful zone leaders and sister training leaders.
President taught how to work successfully with members, I led a discussion on what we learned from General Conference and how we can apply it to missionary work. The assistants gave instruction on communication. We concluded with a wonderful testimony meeting and then enjoyed bean dip and chips before all departed to their areas.

New missionaries receive their trainers--Wednesday October 5, 2016

New missionaries and trainers receive a full day of instruction on the vision of the mission, the doctrine of Christ, how to teach effectively, how to work well together in companionships to be effective El Faro missionaries.

We enjoy pulled pork sandwiches, salad, chips, brownies and ice cream for lunch.  We especially love seeing these faithful missionaries interacting with each other.  We have them sit alternating new missionary and trainers.  During lunch the trainers sing a few mission songs.

Eighteen wonderful new missionaries are assigned to their new companions during this very enthusiastic, energetic, fun part of our training.
