Staring in just a few days in May, all MTC's around the world are changing their training curriculum for all new missionaries. In the past, new missionaries were learning the doctrines of PMG chapter 3, relating to the lesson content of their teaching. No longer will that happen. What this means is that new missionaries will arrive to the mission field not knowing the lessons from chapter 3 unless they studied them before their mission.
In a recent mission president's seminar we were instructed that starting August 1st, a new 12-week 'in-field' training effort would begin for new missionary arrivals. This 12-week infield study will help them learn chapter 3 lessons and qualify their doctrinal content for teaching. Personally I see this as a great step forward and improvement in missionary preparation. Both these changes in training will result in a more effective missionary teacher.
