|This me trying to pace myself!|
I do a power point presentation, but require them to come up with ideas of their own. There were two good articles, one in the January 2013 New Era "How to Never Have a Boring Church Class Again" by TED BARNES and the other was: "To Be Edified and Rejoice Together" BY A. ROGER MERRILL
I used the Quote from President Kimball: "Someone asked President Spencer W. Kimball (1895–1985), “What do you do when you find yourself in a boring sacrament meeting?” His answer was a little surprising: “I don’t know. I’ve never been in one.” We discussed why someone who lived 90 years did not find any sacrament meetings boring. They came up with many, I added "healthy" ways to stay alert. Of course ADEQUATE INTAKE OF WATER was one of my points. These missionaries will remember one thing from me.....Drink, drink, drink water!!
There were several missionaries that thanked me for my presentation and one even said it was an answer to a prayer of his. That made me feel good, I am glad I am an instrument in the hands of the Lord to help them develop lifelong healthy habits (I hope!) The things they learn on a mission do change them for the rest of their lives!!!
Elder McOmber stayed busy checking cars, presented on bicycle security and moving missionaries this week. He works hard all the time. The missionaries notice how hard he works.
|We have a luncheon at each of the zone conferences. The elders and sisters are all happy to see each other!|
|A couple of elders helping to clean up, I am proud of them just not dumping the crumbs on the floor. |
Their mom's taught them right!
|Some sisters meeting today.|
|The AP's used Alma 50:1-5.23 as a reference for their presentation on preparing lessons. We have some really good artist in our mission.|
"Life requires us to perform many duties—some routine, others more meaningful and important. An integral part of duty is to set the proper example and to take every opportunity to bolster others along this uphill road of life. This might be done with an encouraging word, a compliment, a handshake—any indication of caring. And we need to keep in mind that as we learn our duties well here, we also are preparing for the performance of eternal duties." "Let Every Man Learn His Duty". October 1980
|Three of our "Elders" that completed an honorable mission, came back today for a visit. They were able to go to the Temple with a family they all taught. The family was sealed today. It was so good to see them all!|
