Follow Up Training

What a great day we had with our new missionaries 
and their trainers in our follow up training.

The assistants highlighted introducing
the Book of Mormon and then everyone
practiced again and again, changing

Then,  the 7 Celestial Habits Challenge!
 Think fast and name one of the 7 celestial habits
that hasn't been said yet as the ball is tossed to you.
       1.  Always give the baptismal challenge
2. Teach lessons in order
(three ways to receive revelation)
3.  Through prayer
4.  Reading the Book of Mormon
5.  Attending church
6.  Ask for referrals
7.  Evaluate and set goals

Dividing up into teams

Playoffs... calling out a different way to ask for referrals
before tossing the ball to someone else.
Some possible answers might be:

Do your neighbors know that you are a member of the church?
Who do you know that would be blessed by living the gospel?
Who is the last person you talked to about the church?
Of the people you know here in the city, who do you think
should receive a visit from the missionaries, And be baptized?
Have you ever given out a Book of Mormon?  To whom?
Are all of your family members, members of the church?
Do you know any active or inactive members who have
non member friends or family members we could visit?

And our winner is... Hermana Valdez 

Bless their hearts, everyone watched in excitement
as several Hermana's opened some fun 
long awaited Christmas packages!

President always around for a question or two

and they are off again...
