Today was our January Mission Council.
What a wonderful, fabulous, outstanding
group of leaders we have serving here
in the Mexico Guadalajara Mission!
*How opposition is a very real and valuable part of God's plan
(thank you Elder Teeples)
*How we must strengthen ourselves to become a
mighty tool in the Lord's hands
*Thus far... how are we doing? (1Nephi 5:20)
Quotes to ponder-
*Rise up, Rise up to the great challenge that faces you
*The Lord needs our best.
*He needs those who can run, not just walk
*We must rescue all that is finest in us
*Run the race that is set before us
We highlighted the mighty leaders
Joshua and faithful Caleb from the Old Testament.
These were the two men, of all of those who left Egypt
that God allowed to enter the promised land.
It was Joshua and Caleb that had
remained true to the God that lead them with
miracle after miracle manifested with his mighty arm.
God fought their battles, and fed them with manna
for all those many years. And now, as they stood
on the brink of entering the promised land,
along side the hosts of the faithless Israelites.
It was Caleb who calmed their fears before
Moses saying yes the city was very great,
and there would be much to overcome, but let us
go up at once and possess it, for we are well able to
over come it. Then this righteous leader, now 85 years
old said, Give me this mountain! (Give me this challenge,
give me this opportunity) Give me this mountain!
(Numbers chapters13, 14 and especially Joshua 14:6-12)

have to teach in a variety of ways, demonstrating several
times, reviewing and then, allow them to tell or show us
they understand the concept.
