La Carlota District Council Training: 'Rescue The One'

All auxiliary officers and branch presidents of the 8 units under the La Carlota District of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints showed their genuine interest on rescuing those inactive, less active members of their respective branches.

Sister Mary Ann Chua-Balen of Cebu LDS Resource Center representative trained these leaders in a half-day seminar recently at the meetinghouse of La Carlota District.

Conducting a council meeting where those identified members and how they may be rescued was done in workshop, and dramatized by a pipe-pingpong ball race.

Several groups were created. For their first attempts, all of the groups weren't able to bring the ball to its box-destination at the stage.

They tried and tried unti they learned how to do it. Teamwork, proper coordination, careful execution of the race made the contest to be won.

Applying these principles, they believe that they could also win those inactive, less active members back to Church.

They ended up by identifying them one by one from their respective home branches.
