Preparing for a call to serve

Wednesday 19 February marked the beginning of another year of the stake Missionary Preparation Class.

The class is held in Deloraine each Wednesday night at 6pm, and it was fantastic to have in attendance 10 participants in Deloraine with another 5 in Burnie participating via the Internet

The purpose of the class is to inspire every worthy young man and where appropriate, young woman and mature couple, to serve a mission. Students learn from the missionary manual, Preach My Gospel, and regularly practice teaching the missionary lessons to each other

Of the students who participated last year, 6 of those are currently serving full-time missions with another 4 to leave for their missions shortly. What a wonderful thing this is! However, this means our classroom a little empty and it would be great to have 10 new faces attending next week to be their replacements!

The Lord is hastening His work and the stake Missionary Preparation Class is a great way to increase your desire to share the gospel and develop your skills so you can more effectively do so.
