The highlight of this last week was that all of the Philippines had an area broadcast, which featured Michael John U. Teh of the Seventy and also Quentin L. Cook! So yesterday we had the privilege of hearing their messages. Elder Teh challenged us to be men and women of INTEGRITY. This is tested through our simple everyday acts. Also that we should not only do good things but strive to know the Lord's will that is specific to us.
Something I liked from Elder Cook's talk was his comparison of the sun and the moon in terms of the kingdoms of glory. He pointed out that the sun uses its own light, while the moon can only reflect borrowed light. As far us, we must be valiant in our testimonies and not used borrowed light if we want to obtain celestial glory. "If we haven't chosen the kingdom of God, the other choices we make won't matter much."
Our investigators with baptismal dates have had struggles keeping their commitments of coming to church so we will have to try to figure out how we can fix this in order to help them receive a new date. But Mary Grace's brother Glen attended the broadcast yesterday and he also came to our branch's mutual night, so hopefully there is some potential there.

The Angadanan elders-Looks like it should be on the cover of the Ensign or something right?
