Ciao! Presidenti!

President and Sorella Wolfgramm departed for the United States the day following the arrival of President and Sorella Dibb on June 28th

Mission Leadership Council (Consiglio) was held the following Tuesday with the Sister Training Leaders and Zone Leaders.  The picture of the Sister Training Leaders is below:

President and Sorella Dibb toured the mission attending zone training and interviewing each missionary.   

President Dibb spoke of changes announced by the First Presidency and Missionary Department at the New Mission Presidents’ Seminar.  He also spoke of the “Work of Salvation” broadcast.  Missionaries were encouraged to dress like executives using the new Church websites for Sisters and Elders as a guideline.  Backpacks are to be replaced by side bags or brief cases.

Missionaries taught their peers about characteristics of a missionary from the 4th Section of the Doctrine and Covenants.  President Dibb encouraged missionaries to study faith (Bible Dictionary page 669) as well as the scriptures to learn the process of developing faith.  Obedience produces faith.  All true faith is based on correct knowledge so participants were urged to study continually.  President Dibb taught, “Be obedient missionaries so that you may accumulate a reserve of faith.”

“No matter what your circumstance, you can choose to be a disciple of Christ.”  “Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life” (3 Nephi 5:13).

Sister Dibb taught that the faithful service of the missionaries will bring about the promise, “And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face.  I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit will be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you to bear you up” (D&C 84:88).

The assistants and zone leaders directed instruction from Predicare il mio Vangelo on helping investigators with baptismal dates achieve their goal of being baptized as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
