During part of the conference, we separated the anziani and sorelle into two rooms. In my section, I asked the Sister Training Leaders to give a short adestramento on Preparing to Step Up. We have 22 of our seasoned missionaries returning home during the next transfer and another huge group the transfer after that. We are preparing our younger missionaries to take their place as leaders in the mission. The STL's were asked to share valuable things they have learned on their mission, things learned that helped make them a good leader, and what younger missionaries need to know and do to be the future leaders of the mission.
