Today started a 4 day training seminar for all of the Zone Leaders and District Leaders in the mission. They have come in from all over the capital and “South”. President Almonte is teaching the leaders a new training program the church has just released. All of the missions in the church will be receiving this training over the next 8 months. Then in May of next year it will be taught to the new missionaries in all of the MTC’s around the world. That way when the new Elders and Sisters arrive in the field they will be met by Trainers that already know and use the new program.

Last Monday when we met with President ViƱas he previewed the program for us. As I understand it, the new program of teaching will still use all of the material in “Preach My Gospel” but it will emphasis a new and different way to use the material.

Today we got a taste of “Earl” a category 4 hurricane that is passing by the Caribbean. Now we can actually say we were in a hurricane while we served on our mission. Well…. we can say it with “tongue in cheek”! This afternoon it sprinkled for about 4 hours and that was it. There were no hurricane force winds; in fact there was no wind at all. But the moisture was definitely from “Earl”, it was one of the spiral arms of the hurricane that happened to reach out far enough to rain a little on Santo Domingo. The real hurricane was hundreds of miles away to the east in the Atlantic.
