Catania Zone Conference - July 2014

July 25, 2014

Insights from the latest New Mission President Seminar that President Waddoups shared with the missionaries:

Missionaries are now asked to teach lessons 1-5 prior to baptism and then to reteach all 5 lessons after baptism and stay very close to new converts for three months and then stay in touch with them for at least a year.  Most missionaries don't stay in one area that long which means the new missionaries coming into that area need to immediately establish a relationship and continue fellow shipping them.

Baptisms are a beginning, not a goal.  The goal is families being sealed in the temple and establishing eternal families.

Obedience is more important than sacrifice.

Work of missionaries is the most important work.

People say Paul stood on this rock in Siracuse to preach--but nobody knows for certain.  It is straight across the street from the church.

  1. I love that! Baptism is a beginning, not a goal. The goal is families sealed for eternity!
