Mission Leadership Council "Concilio" -- 31 July 2017

Today we held our monthly Mission Leadership Council, where all the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders come together to discuss the needs of and set goals for the mission. After the leaders reported on their Zones we welcomed 13 missionaries as new members of the Council.

I began the concilio teachings with my presentation on "Healthy Living" and was followed by President Dayton with his presentation "The Book of Mormon: Our Greatest Proselyting Weapon."

After those two presentations we adjourned the meeting for lunch. Carolina baked a delicious lasagna with a salad on the side for the main course and the missionaries enjoyed a Do-Your-Own ice cream bar.

After lunch, the Assistants Elder Perri and Christensen taught about having more effective companionship exchanges. To end Concilio, President taught "Forever Finding Families in El Faro."
