Mission Tour

What a blessing for Cavite Mission to have Elder and Sister Echo Hawk join us for Mission Tour. Elder Echo Hawk is a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy, and is in the Philippines Area Presidency. You will never meet a nicer or more genuine couple - they truly love us all. 
We started the week with the Echo Hawk's arriving on Tuesday afternoon. We showed them around the mission home, and then we drove to the mission office. There Elder Echo Hawk interviewed the assistants, and after that we visited a few missionary apartments.

 Elder Matina and Elder Hansen get a special visitor to their apartment. Elder Echo Hawk checked in the refrigerator and even went upstairs. 
Sister Bergeson and Sister Murphey also get a visit.

After the visits, we returned to the mission home for dinner, and went to bed early to prepare for the coming two days of meetings.

The first day of meetings started in Dasmariñas. Attending were the Muntinlupa, Carissa, Silang, San Gabriel, and Dasmariñas Zones - about 100 missionaries in attendance. The talks centered on Obedience, the Book of Mormon, and loving the Savior.

The general meeting ended at 3:00pm. After that, we had Missionary Leadership Council until 5:30pm. I brought dinner for them instead of having another catered meal prepared. They were pretty excited that I let them make their own taco salad for dinner.
I love it when the missionaries are happy!

Day two of mission tour brought us to the brand new Bacoor Chapel. President's favorite thing about the Bacoor Chapel is the podium that moves up and down to adjust to his tall stature.
Attending were Naic, Cavite, Molino, Las Piñas, and Bacoor Zones.
Elder Matina shows the heart on the back of his name badge. YES!

 President Tye has a birthday in May and he insisted on having the singing and the stage all to himself.

It was really hard for us to say goodbye to the Echo Hawk's! We love them dearly and feel very blessed to have had them with us this week.
