Se Esfuerza al Máximo all over the Mission

In Preach My Gospel  or Predicad Mi Evangelio there is a section about what it is to be a successful missionary.  We started teaching the missionaries from this section from the first day that we started.  One of the attributes of a successful missionary is -"Work effectively every day, do your best to bring souls to Christ, and seek earnestly to learn and improve."  Well, President Haws pointed out from the beginning that it sounds better in Spanish and that he loved the important phrase "se esfuerza al máximo".  Here it is in Spanish- "Trabaja eficazmente todos los días, se esfuerza al máximo por llevar almas a Cristo y trata sinceramente de aprender y de mejorar".  It has become a theme throughout the Mission to express the desire to work with our maximum effort! Our missionaries think of it often and act it out frequently, with their Zone, companions, members, converts, and everywhere really.  I thought it would be fun to share some of the many different poses that have been struck:
