Glimpses at Training

Between sessions someone must have said something funny that caught Elder Evans, the over 25 missionary, off guard.  He and Sister Evans are seated with other missionaries in the Augusta Maine zone.  Below are Elder Levie and Elder Adams who are successfully expressing love for each other and their personal feelings about the priesthood-without laughing and without breaking eye contact. On the right are missionaries of the Montpelier Zone are about to sing a third verse of "Called to Serve" which was written years ago for this mission and has become a tradition in the mission. 

Missionaries love to be together.  Since our areas are spread apart with a few exceptions, they may see other missionaries only once a month or even less often.  In training, we emphasized the Atonement of the Savior, Jesus Christ and our sure witness of his life and resurrection, planning--always planning!- the importance of member lessons and talking to everyone.  The assistants had all the missionaries--and themselves--"get over" embarrassment to talk to others.
