After Zone Conference, the missionaries headed back to their areas, except for our Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders, who stayed for our monthly MLC meeting with Elder Uceda. We met from 3:00 until 6:00, then the lovely lunch ladies of Quincy had sack dinners for each of the 30 leaders who stayed, so they could eat as they traveled back to their areas.
Here are our mission leaders, including a few new faces:President Lewis did some follow up on what we talked about last zone conference and being agents unto ourselves with the new missionary schedule. Then Elder Uceda spent the rest of the time talking with us about the results of the missionary survey everyone took in preparation for his visit. We talked about trends in the mission and things we can work on. We are renewing our efforts to watch and learn from The District videos. Elder Uceda would like companionships to watch a segment and learn from it each day in companion study time. He told us we are finding plenty to teach, but to help the progress to baptism, we must be better teachers. We talked about things we can do to improve.Chicken salad croissant sandwiches for the ride home:We also introduced the new Easter Initiative today. It’s fabulous!
