Mission Leadership Council

We had another wonderful MLC on Friday.  This meeting is held the first Friday of every month with all the Zone Leaders and Sister Training leaders.  
We are blessed to have a strong group of leaders in the NYNYN mission.

"A good leader sets an example of gospel living and devoted, selfless service to God and His children.  A leader strives to exercise faith in Jesus Christ, repent and become more like the Savior, keep covenants, receive the Holy Ghost and endure to the end."  
Missionary Handbook

By living the gospel of Jesus Christ, a leader develops Christlike attributes.

"No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned;
"By kindness, and pure knowledge, which shall greatly enlarge the soul without hypocrisy, and without guile...
Let thy bowels also be full of charity towards all men, and to the household of faith, 
and let virtue garnish thy thoughts unceasingly; then shall thy confidence 
wax strong in the presence of God; and the doctrine of the priesthood shall distil upon
 thy soul as the dews from heaven."
Doctrine & Covenants 121:41-42, 45

"And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:  Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many".
Matthew 20:27-28

(Where's Lauren...)
She was so happy we were still at the church when she got home from school.  
She loves to see the missionaries.
