Elder Udy
900 E. Tickle Street #3D
Dyersburg, TN  38024 
Dear Elder Udy:
Congratulations on being called to serve as a co- trainer to Elder Nathan Andrew Miner in the Arkansas Little Rock Mission.  As you know, the calling of trainer is in many ways the most important and essential a missionary can receive.  You are helping to establish the foundation upon which Elder Miner’s service in the Arkansas Little Rock Mission will rest as well as his continued service in Taiwan. I encourage you to make your experiences with your new companion both fulfilling and joyful.  Because of his special circumstances, you will need to use great patience and love.

As a trainer, you are expected to pay particular attention to the following areas:

        Obey mission rules with exactness. Show Elder Miner what is expected.  Follow the daily schedule
         diligently and help him understand and apply the material in The First 12 Weeks for New Missionaries
         and Trainers
.  Review the Missionary Handbook and Arkansas Little Rock Mission Arrival Binder

        Help Elder Miner  acquire basic missionary skills through your example.  Focus your studies on the
         Book of Mormon, other scriptures, and the lessons found in Preach My Gospel, especially the lessons in
         Chapter 3.  Have companionship study every day for 2 hours, except preparation day and weekly
         planning day.

       Prayerfully work together in planning outlines of the discussions you will teach your investigators.
         Work together to teach by the Spirit. “Role play” with Elder Miner and practice being in teaching
         situations with your investigators.  Evaluate what was done well and what can be improved.  Avoid
         criticism and seek to lift and motivate.

        Use the weekly companion planning meeting to help Elder Miner set goals and evaluate progress.

        Make certain Elder Miner participates fully as a contributing member of the companionship.

Most importantly, in all of your dealings with Elder Miner, remember the counsel found in the Doctrine and Covenants 121:39-46.  Always lead, live and love like Jesus Christ.  May the Lord’s choicest blessings be yours as you faithfully fulfill this important calling.

Yours truly,

Taniela Wakolo,  
Mission President
