Mayordomía

One of our favorite privileges is working with children who have the sense of responsibility and stewardship, mayordomía, that assures us they will be future leaders of the church and community.

They not only learn to play the piano and lead music, but they take charge, making sure someone is on the schedule play each hymn, putting up the numbers, and teaching others what they have learned.

Here are a few of our favorite kids, who give us confidence that we can come back here in ten years and find a rich heritage of music:

Eight year-old Kristel not only plays the piano each week, she also puts up the hymn numbers on Saturday night and then takes the list of hymns to the branch president's office.

Twelve year-old Karina knows how to lead music--complete with fermatas, upbeats, and changes in time signature.  Here she is teaching an adult to do the same thing!

Fourteen year-old Jose always practices for weeks to play each hymn perfectly.  And he is always prepared to play extra hymns if someone else doesn't make it to church.

Fourteen year-old Alfredo practices for weeks to play each hymn perfectly. And he is always prepared to step up and play extra hymns if someone else doesn’t make it to church.
