Jumping for Joy in June

June was a month of exquisite joy in the mission.  We received two missionaries and nineteen finished their service of eighteen months to two years, serving full-time for our Heavenly Father teaching the doctrine of Jesus Christ.  
Also, zone trainings were held in each zone where finding techniques were shared and working with members was re-emphasized.  We were challenged to make June a month of preparation in finding new people to teach.  We are ending the month with a week of consecration to dedicate ourselves again and find those things we can improve in our missionary service.  Again we experienced the testimonies and wisdom of those missionaries who are departing in July.

Consiglio was held June 6, 2016, at the Lampugnano church building.  We had a special guest, Sorella Dal Zotto, who helped us to find "Family Tree" on our iPads and do some basic things regarding family history work to use in finding and in working with new members to take an ancestor to the temple.  We also shared other ways to find, reported our stewarships, shared testimony and introduced new members of the Council.
