Break Out Sessions

So, what happens in this Training?

As in virtually every meeting in The Church, there’s naturally a Welcome, an Opening Hymn and a Prayer.  Unlike most Church meetings, but typical of virtually every training meeting in the Alabama Birmingham Mission, we start off with two, Missionary-led, memorized recitations:  Doctrine and Covenants 4 and the great Ella Wheeler Wilcox inspirational quote:  
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, 
Can circumvent or hinder or control 
The firm resolve of a determined soul.” 

 The Mission Motto ‘STEADFAST IN CHRIST” then leads into highly interactive presentations by President Hanks, and both Assistants to the President, followed by four breakout sessions that each of the four groups of District Leaders cycles through.  Two of the breakout sessions were led by the Assistants and two others by experienced District Leaders.
