This month, in preparation for the meeting, we read President Hinckley’s talk, which covered the topic of being a leader. It is lonely sometimes because others are watching them and measuring them against a pretty high standard.
Each missionary only serves in the council for a short period of time. They learn a little bit about leadership, they help formulate the direction our mission goes, and they are great examples for all the missionaries to look up to. Eventually they will be reassigned. We pray they will remember everything they learn so they can continue to be a light for the mission.
