Training A New Missionary

                  "A missionary's first companion has a profound, lasting influence on the development of the missionary's attitudes, habits, and ability to fulfill his or her purpose. The responsibility to train a new missionary is a sacred trust from your mission president and from the Lord ( In - Field Training for New Missionaries: Instructions for Trainer p.1 )".

the Pei Family in our ward.

          My core experienced with God this week comes with accepting the calling as a trainer to a new missionary in the mission. When I got the call last Saturday about training a new missionary, I was kind of excited and nervous about it because this is my first time training a new missionary in the mission. I accepted the call to train a new missionary because I know that it will also help me to become more an effective missionary in the mission with my companion. The training that we had received last Tuesday really gives me an idea of what to do with training a new missionary and helping them to see what missionary life is. 

 - The Bungaribee Sisters 
and the Doonside Elders.

           My goal as a 
trainer is to help my companion (trainee) be the kind of missionary who, if called upon, could also train a new missionary by the end of the 12 weeks training period. One of my goal also as a trainer is to help my companion (trainee) be totally freely obedient, be totally devoted to our Mission President and most importantly is to be totally devoted to the Lord Jesus Christ. I will treat my companion as an equal missionary with the same authority that I have with him and to help him to be an effective messenger of the truth. I know that I will learn a lot of things from my new companion and with the training that I had with him. This 12 week training program to a new missionary will really help me to focus myself with my companion and with the Lord and our work in the Lord's mission instead of thinking about myself and my family.

                Something that I learned as Jesus Taught this week is that us a companion (trainer) to a new missionary, I must set as an example of the gospel living  and devoted, selfless service to God and His children. As what it says in 1 Timothy 4:12 and it says: " Let no man despise thy youth, but be thou an example of thy believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in Spirit, in faith, in purity".
