We drove to the mission office to participate in the monthly Mission Leadership Council. These are good meetings where the missionary leaders discuss various challenges facing the mission and the missionaries. One of the current problems is there seems to be an increase in minor illnesses, such as colds and sore throats. Missionaries are to be reminded to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer if they are shaking hands.
The emphasis of the meeting was on preaching repentance and baptizing converts. Most of the discussion was on helping missionaries teach repentance. I think this is a challenge for missionaries particularly if they are teaching older people.
We talked a bit about the upcoming Saints Unified Voices choir firesides. I think the missionaries are excited about attending and taking investigators with them.
