Mission Leader Council

"If someone only changes his behavior while a missionary, then, when he goes home, he will be the very same person he was when he left, subject to the same problems that plagued him before. But if someone changes his nature, he will go home a new man, with the power and discipline to conquer his old Goliath's. . . . . If someone speaks good words but entertains bad thoughts, he has only changed his behavior, if he also changes his thoughts, then he will also change his nature. Our natures have changed when our inner motives and thoughts are consistent with our outward behavior. With the Lord's help we can transform our natures."

This enthusiasm for the work is contagious! 
Sister Tukuafu, Sister Unsicker, Sister Crankshaw, Sister Vila and Sister Russell all wish Sister Lee the best as she leaves for her mission in Korea.
In the foyer of the Wellinton Chapel is a wonderful table with supplies for the members to use to aid them in their missionary efforts. Let's make sure every ward and branch is well equipped and that the tables are labelled so the members know that these items are for their use in sharing the gospel. We could ask, "What items die you take this week to share with your friends?"
