Mission Council

On Tuesday we held mission council at our home. We always enjoy this meeting and I think the missionaries enjoy it as well. Not only are they fed well both spiritually and physically, but they really enjoy seeing each other and catching up on news from their old areas and friends.

We have really become too big to take just one picture easily of everyone who attends so this time I took the pictures by area--the north of the mission, the south of the mission and Guadalajara.

Due to the high number of new sister missionaries our sister leader trainers are not able to be companions at this time--which is why this sister is alone in the picture. But rest assured she does have a companion and she is never alone.

Missionaries in Guadalajara . . .
 Missionaries from the north side of the mission.

For training this month the assistants, Elder Snyder and Elder Casas taught Fundamental Lesson #7, "We Invite, They Commit, We Follow Up. (Chapter 11 in Preach My Gospel)  This was followed by Sister Wagner (Hija) teaching from Chapter 9, on how to find, and President Wagner teaching the missionaries about the Abrahamic Covenant, the Covenant of the Book of Mormon and their foreordained callings to participate in this great work. (I had it easy this time and just covered assignments for the upcoming zone conferences.)

 And as always there are lots of practices.

There is also a lot of food. Probably too much. I love cooking for this meeting but most (not all) of the missionaries have started to become a lot less appreciative of everything, so it isn't as much fun. (Just a little hint there for those who might want to keep getting breakfast and snacks.:-)

But this time we had breakfast enfrijoladas (like an egg burrito smothered in a pinto bean sauce). The snack was a cream cheese and brown sugar dip topped with heath bars and an assortment of apples, marshmallows and pretzel sticks to dip. And lunch was lasagna, salad, rolls, and pumpkin cookies. Oh, and we also had little plastic pumpkins filled with Halloween candy.

  1. Dear sister Wagner, thanks a lot for this blog. These pictures are pure gold. It is a pleasure to see the missionaries sharing and learning more things about the gospel. The food looks delicious :)
