A New Curriculum for our Missionaries

The new mission presidents just arriving to their areas were instructed on the "Simplified Curriculum" that has just been introduced. All missions have been given the new lessons and are to begin teaching them to their missionaries. Immediately, we got to work with our assistants and developed a plan. We put together a Mini MTC, for all the Zone and District leaders along with our trainers, and step trainers, so they could be trained and then deploy this in our mission.
Last week we had four straight days of 10:00 am-4:00 pm, where we gathered together and were taught the new curriculum. The changes that will occur are that we will have Zone Conferences and Interviews quarterly. Sounds like it would free up a lot of time?...WRONG. New instruction will be added in their place. Every other month we will have "Leadership Training" mission wide and we will have "Specialized Training", monthly which will help us focus on areas in the mission that need extra attention so that we can be more effective. This will be a tremendous opportunity to accelerate the work throughout the world.

This is just a small glimpse of what our week was comprised of.
