The assistants taught Fundamental Lesson #7, "Nosotros invitamos, ellos se comprometen". They are always very entertaining, and do a great job following the training model (explain, demonstrate, practice, evaluate, re-practice) with interesting practices. We appreciate their hard work.
President Wagner also taught on the area plan, better ways to succeed with the area plan and how to increase our faith. I taught on the need to follow up on what they teach their zone members to be sure they are applying it, and then re-teach as many times as is necessary. We also covered charity, which is the attribute we are focusing on this month.
We had 7 new zone leaders joining us this month and one new sister leader trainer. It seems like our group is constantly changing.
After the meeting we fed them lunch. It is interesting to me that feeding up to 14 people for me is no longer a big deal. But this group is still a challenge. It takes two days of cooking by me and Sister Hernandez who helps me at home. Then we have to haul everything to the church. But, it is worth it. The alternative would be to order pizza or Subway sandwiches and I have not reached that point yet.:-) I still really enjoy planning and cooking this meal.
This month we had green chili chicken chilaquiles, refried beans, fruit salad and cake. Chilaquiles are really nachos with a warm salsa poured over them. Pretty tasty actually.
It was a good day!
