Missionary Training Center - MTC

At last a new way for the missionaries to teach!

I am in agreement with this because before I think we almost sounded like JWs having to memorize set discussions took away from the personalization that was needed.

Attached Image QUOTE

Curriculum changes to the methodology for missionary training were
announced Sunday, 12 January, in a meeting held for all Missionary Training
Center employees. Elder M. Russell Ballard, Elder Richard G. Scott, and
President Boyd K. Packer spoke in the meeting. "We are making a very
important course correction on how we prepare, train, and teach
missionaries," Elder Ballard said. The new curriculum changes will be
implemented over the next few weeks. Source

MTC Center Training Missionary

I couldn't find the article, but I had heard that missionaries were no longer required to memorize the discussions. While I think it is good to not follow an entirely memorized script when teaching, I wonder what is being done to ensure that these young missionaries have the necessary knowledge to adequately teach the gospel. Sad to say, but many of these young men do not have the doctrinal background they really should before entering the MTC. At least by memorizing the discussions, they are learning the fundamentals. I think this is especially been an aid in the past for foreign language missionaries. They pretty much learned to speak the discussions as an aid to learning the language.

I do believe the brethren making these decisions are inspired, though, so I am sure this is the correct direction in which to go.

That's a strange move considering the recent announcement that might mean they will have even more missionaries now with the restriction dropped to 18.

Well they said it was 'complexities and concerns" so who knows but better to not do it than do something that might turn out to be a disaster like missionaries stuck in the elevator.

Yeah but wouldn't you plan that from before? I mean there were probably architectural designs and people sitting in a committee for this sort of thing.
