TRAINING

We've had a SUPER busy month.  Along with our usual schedule, we were also sent some new training from SLC...training that supports Preach My Gospel, and is designed to help the missionaries teach with the Spirit, and teach people, not lessons!  It was well received, and gave some exciting ways to refine our teaching.  We've met with several groups of missionaries so far, and eventually will present the training to all of them.  Next May, the missionaries in the MTC will receive begin to receive this training, then when they arrive, we'll all be on the same page. 
This training also gave us a reason to have all of the sisters come in together.  They don't very often get a chance to be in one place and share ideas and experiences...as well as friendship and testimonies.  It was wonderful to spend a few days with them.  Left to right:  Sister Strein, Layton, Pope, Kottambagahagedara, Babbage, Perera, McKelvie, Nadsady, Bioleome, Van Eeden, Clark, Morgan, and Nemec.  They come from the US and the UK...also from the Netherlands, Croatia, Germany,and our two sisters from Sri Lanka.

Thank you, Sister Ogden, for these posts! We LOVE to see the missionaries and hear what they are doing...especially one! Thank you to you and President Ogden for loving them and taking care of them. They love you both. You are in our prayers always.

The picture where they look bored was actually taken before the training started...they hadn't quite woken up yet!
