Biggest thing that happened this week was Zone Training on Wednesday. About 45 minutes before it begun at Bayview, President Clayton called and was all like. “Hey! Im coming! Don’t start without me!” When the mission president comes to Zone Training it’s only going to turn out 2 ways. Either everyone puts on a good show and decides to participate or it can be a silent as a tomb and the whole training becomes a huge flop. Thankfully, The North York Zone came to be heard and there was never a quiet moment. It was such a great meeting and we had a good counsel to come up with appropriate goals to shoot for. Everyone was participating, even the President. #happydays
I think the biggest thing as a leader is to gain the trust of the people you serve. Ultimately, as people can see the love their leaders have for them, they will want to work. When a zone works together and sees success together, unity develops and everyone will make sacrifices as well as go the extra mile to achieve things. the attitude changes from what can i do for my area but rather what can i do for my zone. The perspective changes from it being the ZL’s zone but to our zone. I think the biggest blessing i’ve taken from my time here in North York is to really see that culture change and see how much the missionaries enjoy being missionaries now. I think that is particularly important because of the 4 new missionaries we have this transfer.
