Trainers for December 2014 Batch

The week before transfers, we meet with all the Trainers who will receive a companion from the new batch of missionaries. A Trainer is one of the most important leaders in the mission. Trainers shape the mission through their examples of obedience, patience and diligence in missionary work. We are blessed to have faithful Trainers in the Urdaneta Mission!

Christmas 2014 Zone Conference in Urdaneta

Our second Christmas Zone Conference was held in the Urdaneta stake center with all missionaries in the Mangaldan, Rosales, Urdaneta North and Urdaneta zones. It was certainly another day of spiritual feasting. As part of our conferences, we watched "He Is the Gift," --a wonderful Christmas video worth sharing. Then we had a very nice luncheon. During lunch in both days of conferences, I loved observing and taking pictures of the missionaries as they enjoyed each other's company and visited former companions. We watched our mission video, "My Three Words," while we ate lunch (I'll post the link to our "My Three Words 2014" video soon.)
