The goal for this month is 31 baptisms. Our CVM target is Find the elect, a trial of your faith. Our Christlike attribute is faith. We have the faith that this mission can baptize.
We had great discussion today in MLC. Elder Kuepper and Elder Gibb led a discussion on How to Prepare for MLC. We need to look at what we can improve on. In Preach My Gospel there are four principles of language learning that were adapted to priniples of leadership: take responsibility, make your study meaningful, seek to communicate, and learn new concepts thoroughly.
President Felix discussed three aspects from Elder Bednar:
1. Prepare to learn
2. Interact to edify
3. Invite to act
The senior couples prepared a wonderful lunch - watermelon, corn casserole, baked beans, pulled pork sandwiches, chips and blueberry cobbler.
Doug Montague from the Newberry Park Stake shared his experience as a missionary taking the example of Ammon and his brothers in teaching the Lamanites. He had slides to go with his presentation. I mention that because there were missionaries who had not seen a slide projector before.

Sisters Ulassin and King presented the application of success in working with members is having a good attitude. The three Ps are: positive, proactive, and productive. Have a positive attitude -- be supportive, encourage and help the members. Be proactive by continuing to follow up. Be productive in using time wisely and in gaining members trust. The EDPEP was helping a member invite.
We were edified by listening to the departing missionaries bear testimony (Elder Keupper, Hermana Johnson,
Elder Snyder, and Hermana Frias).
The commitment that President Felix extended was to focus on faith for this transfer and the next two transfers.
