The Mission Leadership Council in the Italy Rome Mission has always been referred to as the Capi Conference (Leader's Conference). In today's meeting, President Waddoups announced that the meeting will no longer be referred to as a Capi Conference, but will now be called the Leadership Council or Consiglio. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is built on the principle of councils. This move brings the mission into harmony with gospel principles. It's not a big thing, but an important thing.
The Assistants concentrated their remarks on finding and teaching families who can one day be sealed in the temple.
We did a lengthy session on obedience and concentrated on the disobedience that plagues their zones and how they are working to change behavior. The exchange between the leaders of all the zones was helpful to all of them.
President Waddoups concluded the meeting by talking about the Doctrine of Christ and referring to a passage of scriptures in Alma 5:14-40.
And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually
been born of God? Have ye received his image in your countenances?
Have ye experienced this mighty change in your hearts?
