2010 Utchi Program

Beginning in April, our missionaries are reading the
Book of Mormon twice before the end of the year.
The first time they read, they are to focus of Jesus Christ,
highlighting in red all the names, characteristics and
anything the Savior has said directly to man. The second
round, they are to highlight in blue all doctrine found
that we should know for our salvation. After the first reading,
the missionaries are awarded an Utchi. The Utchi
is a symbol found on Mayan ruins in Southern Mexico
and Northern Guatemala which translated means,
"And it came to pass..." This program has been
a faith promoting experience for all our missionaries.
They have a firmer testimony of the Book of Mormon.

  1. That sounds like a great program! I have a tie with the Utchi symbol on it! I might start your utchi program here!
