Mini-MTC in La Laguna Stake

The La Laguna Stake in Gomez Palacio, Durango held a youth activity this Saturday that was outstanding. They organized a Mini-MTC or CCM as they call it here in Mexico. (Centro de Capacitacion Misional) All the youth in the stake attended in missionary attire to learn about how to be a missionary. We began with a welcome in the chapel where Pres. Clark spoke and the full-time missionaries sang. Then the youth were divided into two groups, the Sons of Mosiah and the Sons of Helaman. There were workshops taught by the missionaries and returned missionaries, lunch, and then the youth actually went out with a companion and an adult to an assigned area to talk to people about the church. They shared their experiences in a testimony meeting at the close of the day. It was exciting to hear of their successes as they found that it is not hard ot share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father hears the prayers of his children and knows the desires of their hearts. When they are ready, missionaries find them and teach them so that they can enjoy the blessings of the gospel in their lives. Here are some photos of the great youth in the La Laguna Stake.

The joy of missionary work shows in their smiles.
