Sister Jila May Fortun, from the Philippines, also shared a simple testimony. “I want to share this beautiful gospel with everyone,” she said.
When they were done, Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles talked about the value of every single missionary to leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If the expanded facilities at the Philippines Missionary Training Center only served those two missionaries — or any other single missionary — all the work would have been worth it, he said.
“The Lord’s hand is upon the work we are dedicating today, and we will see great and marvelous things from these beginnings,” he said. “The Philippines and this MTC serve much of Asia. Languages will be taught here. People will be coming here in larger numbers.”
Elder Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles dedicated the expanded MTC six days after creating the 100th stake in the Philippines — the only Asian nation and the first nation outside of the Western Hemisphere to reach this milestone.
