Guadalajara Leadership Training

Here are a few highlights from our final leadership training day with the Guadalajara area district leaders, zone leaders and sister training leaders.  It was a wonderful day.  Once again, we are so impressed with each of our missionaries.  They have great role models and examples to follow in these district, zone and sister training leaders.  Here are a few more examples of these fine leaders.

(**note**I began by posting our training with the Colima area, then the Tepic area, and finally this post with our Guadalajara area.  I have written a bit more information in my first post with the Colima area)

Here are the leaders of the Guadalajara area

President acknowledging our final training day with our outstanding assistant Elder Wilson.  
With him going home this transfer, we express our love and gratitude to him for all he has done for us. He has been the finest trainer (our trainer) any mission president could have wished for.

muchas gracias Elder Wilson!

leaders working together

vs. working alone

Study groups, notice the assistants stay close by each group to answer questions
and assure that the material is understood

various  assignment were given for district, zone and sister training leaders to teach and present   

practicing what was presented

I love how Elder Lara and Elder Teichert taught about record keeping.
They asked each leader to find the pages they were referencing, and 
they double checked that the pages were filled out correctly.

I taught about 3 very temporal things that have a great deal to do
with our spiritual well being.  Taking care of ourselves- our health,
our apartments, and reducing stress and worry. 

our comida!  Elder Atwood and Elder Poblete arranged for a sister
 and her husband to come and make taco's for our lunch
They were delicious!!

We celebrated Elder Poblete's birthday

Birthday tradition is that as they bend down to blow out the candles, someone sneaks up and pushes their face into the cake....  Elder Atwood and Elder Wilson did the honors

President checking each area book

President had the Elders help him again with his quick object lesson, demonstrating the need to resist the opposition of the Elder in the center as he fell forward, and support him, holding him up to keep him from hitting the floor.
He talked again about how opposition can serve to strengthen our faith, and it is necessary to accomplish all things.
