"And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." D&C 84:88

The Training was done by President Merrill for 1 hour where he reviewed the vision for the mission and those three items that where highlighted by the Zone Leaders that the mission needed to work on correcting.

Elder Cook taught on the principle of being truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He described and sought scriptural references from the Elders that described what a Natural Man is, what a Saint is and what are some examples in the scriptures that describe this change and a Saint as described in Mosiah 3:19.

Then he pointed out that each lesson in Preach My Gospel is directed toward helping people understand that they need to know, feel and do as we teach them. 

Finally, he pointed out that our goal should be to help Establish the Church.  This is described in Preach My Gospel as “The Church is established as people who have testimonies are baptized and confirmed, keep their covenants, prepare actively to go to the temple, and help strengthen the ward or branch.”  We need to have the vision of our investigators entering into a process where their goal is to enter the Temple.
