Different seminary classes around the world start at different times for logistical and cultural reasons. Bartolo Chi of San Jose Succotz, Belize, started teaching seminary at 5:00 a.m. each morning to a highly energetic group of youth. Why start so early? “We have the classes, we sing hymns, and then we have a little time to play a little bit of football before they get ready to go to school,” he explained.
