Our wonderful Sister Leader Trainers and Amazing Zone Leaders
Two of our Sister Leader Trainers did a great presentation about Intercambios. This is also called divisions in some missions. This is when the Zone Leaders, District Leaders and Sister Leader Trainers spend a day with the companionships in their groups. They do this every transfer! The Sisters talked about the things to do before, during and after the Intercambios to make them more effective.
I talked about ways to gain the confidence of the members. I used some of the ideas that Elder Asbell, a senior missionary in the mission, shared at our last Zone Conference in the Esquel Zone. Then three groups did some demonstrations to illustrate the things we discussed. We learned about importance of using our time wisely when we are with members, getting referrals and reporting back to those who give the referral, and how to organize missionaries to leave the church clean after we as missionaries use it for any reason so the members don't need to clean up after us! There is a big difference between having the members like us as missionaries and if they have confidence in us to refer their friends to us to teach!
The Assistants used some of their hidden talents to teach us!
One of the things President Lovell talked about was the importance of keeping commitments. He also asked one of our Sister Leader Trainers to share an insight that she had about keeping commitments. This included the importance of us as missionaries learning to keep commitments along with the importance of the investigators keeping their commitments.
