A legendary Filipina who owns over a million books in her private library now has a copy of the Book of Mormon.

Miriam Defensor Santiago is a Filipino politician, notable for serving in all three branches of the Philippine government – judicial, executive, and legislative. She was also named as one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World in 1997 by The Australian Magazine.

Brother Elvin, a supporter of Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, gave a Copy of the Book of Mormon to her. “I gave her the BOOK that changed my life and as I am still imperfect, it continues to change my life for the better as I study and live its teachings,” he said.  “I know that the Triple Combination will have a special place in her own library and her life as well, as she told me she had read books from our Church,” he added.

Brother Laceda approached the senator and told her “Ma’am, thank you for your platforms regarding the modernization of agriculture. I am also a missionary and a Mormon, [and] I would love to give you a gift.”

The senator then responded “Oh! I love reading books [about] Mormons,” she said. The senator also added that she owns an album of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

One of the rich teachings in the Book of Mormon is about Leadership. “​Miriam has Christlike virtues,” he concluded.
