I had the privilege of serving under Robert B. Arnold when he presided over the Guatemala-El Salvador mission. He was a deeply good man and blessed the lives of many, myself included, and was there to help begin a great and noble work that continues today. When he became the mission president, there was one stake in the two countries. Today there are about 60 stakes and three temples. Those who knew him were saddened by his untimely passing a number of years ago, but I'm confident that he is actively engaged in pushing the work forward in his current assignment.

To say nothing of the incredible contributions of Harvey L Taylor who was such a pioneer he seems lost to history.

Part of me wishes that the "use local brethren as leaders" policy would be applied here in Michigan, and they would end the practice of sending people from the west to work as CES coordinators.

I'm curious about your comment John. Doesn't it make more sense for someone with seminary and institute experience to oversee CES programs where possible?

@John Pack Lambert of Michigan -

It's lonely and hard work to be an S&I coordinator, you put in a lot of miles going from place to place training volunteer teachers. If a Michigander wanted to become a coordinator they should go through the training classes and apply for openings in Michigan. There are two coordinator positions in Michigan: one in East Lansing and one in Ann Arbor. I see you're from Ypsilanti, so your current coordinator hails from the state of Washington. He's a great teacher and an awesome coordinator. Maybe he can inspire a local to go through the necessary training to take his spot when he leaves. Are you willing?
