Its an exciting time in the mission. Each of our missionary companionships now have the blessing of a smartphone. Technology is a wonderful blessing in the gathering of Israel and the hastening of the work of salvation.
During Zone Conference we spent time training on the Safeguards for Using Technology
Safeguard #1 ~ Be in Tune with spiritual promptings
Safeguard #2 ~ Be focused on your missionary purpose
Safeguard #3 ~ Be disciplined
Safeguard #4 ~ Be one (unity in your companionship)
Different missionary companionships taught each safeguard.
Some teachings that stood out to me were:
"As you follow the safeguards you are blessed to have the spirit."
"Being disciplined is consistent use of agency."
"We will suffer pain of either discipline or regret, which one do we want?"
"Sacrifice brings blessings."
"Following the Spirit is crucial. The spirit is our guide to make it back to our Heavenly Father."
"Decisions determine our destiny."
"Miracles come as you obey safeguards. Take control!"
