The Philippines Cauayan MIssion was BLESSED!

Our mission was blessed with a visit from Elder Brent Nielson and Sister Nielson, who is in the Philippines Area Presidency. They came a day early for Tuguegarao North Stake Conference which enabled them to meet with all of the missionaries. Doing one session for our southern half of the mission and another the next day for the rest of the mission, they taught so many amazing principles. They focused on a talk by Elder Bednar on the Atonement which teaches that the atonement offers both redemptive power (the power to overcome our sins and be forgiven) and enabling power (which can help us to become better than we could do on our own). He also taught us that we get what we go for and he enlightened as to what we need to do to more fully establish the church here in the Philippines. For close to three hours we all sat at their feet and soaked in the spirit and the wise counsel.

We love Elder and Sister Nielson and appreciate their generosity and time. We were richly blessed by their visit.
