Dear Sister Corinne Jones,
You have been called to serve as a Sister Training Leader; we are pleased with your dedication and faith. The Lord will lift you and the Holy Spirit will guide you in this assignment.
Under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost you will lead your missionaries, teaching and providing the example for obedience, diligence, and working by the spirit. Specifically, you will lead by example in planning, finding, teaching, inviting and baptizing. Help each sister missionary have a vision; to set goals and plan with great devotion. Help them to inspire and teach members.
You earn the missionaries’ respect when you demonstrate effective work in your own area. As you produce and bring people to Christ, building a successful area, missionaries will want to be like you. You are expected to lead the way with your area; you should lead out in all key indicators.
Lead by example – look at the sons of Helaman for an example:
“And they were all young men (applies to women), and they were exceedingly valiant for courage, and also for strength and activity; but behold this was not all – they were men who were true at all times in whatsoever thing they were entrusted.
“Yea, they were men of truth and soberness, for they had been taught to keep the command-ments of God and to walk uprightly before him.” Alma 53: 20-21
Through your special talents and gifts, God will provide you with heavenly inspiration. Through your faithful obedience and dedication to the work, various blessings and endowments will be poured out upon you. You will be guided in your work; He will inspire you.
Be true at all times and remember not only do I trust you, but so does the Lord!
In addition to the above counsel, please see attached specific duties of a Sister Training Leader.
With profound love,
H. Jeffery Russell
