"Depth of Love" - 25th Batch: May 23, 2017

                                                                                                                                                 It is officially rainy season in the Philippines.  This did not discourage or disappoint these dear ones.  They are our 25th Missionary Batch to depart since we arrived nearly 3 years ago.  We remember when this group entered the mission.  The Elders arrived six months before the Sisters.  Many of them were very scared because many of them didn't speak English.  They wouldn't even look at us.  There were times that we would visit where a few of the sisters would hide so they didn't have to speak to us.  18 and 24 months later, they have soared in their ability and confidence.  They have a great depth of understanding of people, companions, the gospel and faith.  They now have depth of character, enhanced knowledge, commitment and they are well grounded in their beliefs.  Their roots have grown deeply in gospel soil.  The three words chosen for this batch are "Depth of Love." It seems appropriate - we deeply admire and love them. Farewell dear returned missionaries.  Tandaan mo, mahal kita!

  1. Dear Brother or Sister Clark: My is Donna Davis. My husband and I served in the Angeles Mission from 2008 to 2010. I have been conversing with President Go. He has asked me to send Sister Go some new garments made of a lighter weight fabric. I've also offered to send him several copies of a book I've written that he can sell with the funds being donated to their mission fund. Before taking all this to the post office, I thought I would check and see if you knew of anyone going that direction or could give me a contact who might be willing in taking these things with them and delivering them to President Go. I'm a little unwilling to mail them, not only because of the expense of mail, but we had things sent to us while there that never arrived. The things we did get, we had to pay some sort of tax in order to get them out of the post office. It looks like you just got home, but I thought I would give it a shot. Thanks, I hope your mission was as wonderful as ours was. We lived in Baler and loved the whole experience. Thanks again for any help you might have.
