Went to the Missionary Olympics tonight. Turned out to be pretty fun. Four stages of ward vs ward competitions. There was a trivia stage, scripture chase stage, geography stage, and a cooking stage.
We did well on the trivia and scripture stages but not as much on geography and cooking. The ironic part was that the two leaders from our ward ran the two stages we lost. How about some home cooking here.
Then ended with a video. Used a similar format as the 5 minute guest speakers from priest quorum. Had several people and asked each of them to tell a funny story, a hardship, a spiritual story, and advise they would give someone to prepare them to go on a mission.
It is nice to have an activity so centered around getting the youth to go on a mission. Especially since I am working so hard to get the priest to go on their own mission. Come on priest you can do it.
