Palermo Zone Conference - October 2015

Palermo Zone - October 2015

*  *  *  *  *

The Zone Leaders went to a store to buy a new mattress for an elder who was having back problems.  While there the clerk asked them about their name tags and who they were.  They explained to her how they had left their families for two years and why they were here.  She was intrigued and wanted to know what the real reason was for them to be here.  She was interested in their message and asked them to come to her home and teach them more.

The Assistants taught about the right way to do a role play.  There are five steps that need to be taken.
1.  Example
2.  Review
3.  Practice
4.  Feedback
5.  Re-practice

Even when doing a role play, it is important to teach by the spirit.   Four important elements of teaching by the spirit are 1) ask an inspired question, 2) listen, 3) discern from the spirit the direction you should go, and 4) teach doctrine.

"Perhaps more important than speaking is listening."
--Elder Holland 

People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Rather than being a teacher, I want to be a guide.

A demonstration is not a role play.
