MTC Day 4

Today we had another practice teaching opportunity.  In a way, I feel sorry for the volunteer "investigators" who have to listen to us struggle to teach a coherent lesson.  And each of them have to sit through three consecutive lessons during the morning.  I understand why the role playing and practice teaching is useful.  That doesn't make it exciting though!

Elder Tracy in our district has been feeling poorly, so he went to the doctor.  He was diagnosed with pneumonia.  (Glad that it wasn't something communicable.)  Yesterday he missed the entire day to rest.  Today apparently the medication had some effect, and he was able to participate the entire day, 8 - 4:30.

We had an "elective" class session today during part of our lunch break.  The session was on how to use the Church's Gospel Library app.  As it turned out, almost all of the senior missionary group attended.  Perhaps they should make that a regular part of the curriculum.

Our training has focused primarily on how to teach and invite.  Very little time has been spent on the content of the lessons in Preach My Gospel.  I guess they assume that the senior missionary couples already have an understanding of the gospel.
