Area Organization Advisors spoke about the need to prepare spiritually to serve in a focused manner, to receive personal revelation, and to know how to accomplish God's work. They invited the leaders to follow the example of the preparation of the sons of Mosiah (Alma 17:2-3). The Advisors encouraged the participants to recognize their potential, their divine identity and face the future with faith. They mentioned to the leaders that by serving in the Church they bless the children, youth, and women lives.

During the training, participants learned how to have effective Counsels by applying the following aspects: having a purpose, everyone participates, learning from each other, seeking the Lord's will, seeking unity, committing to act, and giving a report.

Elder Taylor encouraged and invited participants to keep the commandments and seek the kingdom of God first, adding, "The Lord promises us the temporal and spiritual things of this earth when we serve, when we minister to our family and neighbor simply, but with love."
