We called everyone in from all over the mission to meet and listen to Elder Craig Christensen - Presidency of the Seventy, and Elder and Sister Echo Hawk - Philippine Area Presidency. The meeting was scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m. but when President Tye and I pulled up to the church at 8:15, everyone was there and waiting in the parking lot. A sea of white shirts, ties, skirts, dresses, and name tags. It was a beautiful sight!
Because we were lucky enough to get everyone in the mission in one place at the same time, we had a picture taken. The photographer, Russell De la Cruz, is a member of our ward. He did a great job of organizing us and making sure everyone could be seen. There are 206 of us in Cavite. Unfortunately there were three who could not be in the picture. The Pugsley's, one of our senior couples, were at the Manila Temple with their Branch, and one of our elders was in the hospital.
Here is the Philippines Cavite Mission - May, 2014
By the end of July, we will add another 48 missionaries to this group. We just keep growing strong!
