The Friday before the new missionaries arrive their trainers
come together for training and to receive the materials to begin
The First 12 Week Infield Training Program.
The program has a training schedule that will include study from Preach My Gospel, watching DVDs that have been provided, and applying the training model through role playing; to explain, demonstrate, practice, evaluate and repractice.
Being a trainer is a big responsibility. He or she can have
a profound and lasting influence of a new missionary's attitude, habits, and
ability to fulfill his or her purpose.
Meetings are held for the trainer before the new missionary comes to the
mission to teach how to apply the program.
The Friday after the missionaries arrive in the mission, both the trainer and the new
missionary, all come together to talk about how the program is going and to
be trained together.
