We had the Zone Leaders over this morning and the Missionaries that will begin training this week as transfers take place. In this meeting we all felt the spirit of our Heavenly Father guiding the discussion and the comments. Our mission President views the Trainer’s assignment as the most important position in the mission. I endorse his opinion totally. A missionary’s trainer can have a wonderful influence both in the mission field and through out life.
From left to right across the bottom picture are Elders Mmusi, Johnson, Stratton, Chapman, Wells, Richards and Manqane. Elders Stratton, Wells and Manqane are the Zone Leaders and Elders Mmusi, Johnson, Chapman and Richards have the assignment to be Trainers. There are only three Zone Leaders because Elder Mchunu left on Monday to take his new role as an Assistant to the President.
Sister Thomas made the Elders a home made ice cream sandwich. They consist of ice cream in the middle of two homemade chocolate chip cookies. The Elders really enjoyed them and were all smiles.
