We are reminded every week that Drew's mission experience is very different from ours, and not just because he is serving in the States. For example, we spent most of our time in the MTC focusing on the language and then spent the first three months once we got in country memorizing the discussions word-for-word to further improve our Portuguese. In contrast, Elder Tonini spent his time in the MTC learning how to effectively teach. And just because he has left the Missionary Training Center doesn't mean that this training has ended. Beginning August 2011, a new effort was started Church-wide to bring an additional 12 weeks of training to missionaries who have just arrived in the mission field. The materials for the in-field training of new missionaries includes three training documents (one for the mission president, one for the trainer, and one for the new missionary) and new companion study video segments.
