2017-06-23 Wedding and Farewells to Friends

Friday was the sealing of one of our wonderful RM sisters, Sister Gabut.  President was able to attend the sealing, and several of the other RM's from Manila mission were able to be there as well.  It was a very special and beautiful time for all.  Truly seeing our returned missionaries be able to start their own eternal families bring such incredible joy to us.  It is amazing to see how the joy we feel for others is almost greater than the joy we experience for own experiences.  Oh, how we love our missionaries!

Arnold and Susie Nepomuceno, who used to serve as Branch President and wife in Coron, Palawan have become good friends, and their sons had "adopted" Caleb as their "kuya" or older brother.  They have been one of the "pearls" of our experience here in the Philippines.  We are so grateful for them and for all of the Filipinos who have truly put their arms around us and adopted us as their own.
We love you.
