Zone Conference & LDS Conference

Missionary Madi was excited to have Zone Conference this week. This meant getting to be with many of the sisters and elders that were separated after the storm. To be united again as missionaries serving in the Philippines Tacloban Mission. To stand victors over the many challenges they have faced. Not to mention the wonderful instruction the missionaries receive at these conferences. Their lamps are filled and they are re-energized with the desire to continue to be obedient and bring others the good news of the gospel.
In these last days, the Lord has said, “Be faithful, praying always, having your lamps trimmed and burning, and oil with you, that you may be ready at the coming of the Bridegroom” (D&C 33:17). This counsel refers to the parable of the ten virgins, which illustrates how we are to prepare for Christ’s Second Coming (see Matthew 25:1–13).

Missionary Madi was taken back and got a little teary eyed when she realized this would be her last LDS Conference in the Philippines. It was her third!
Everything used to symbolize a beginning and now there are many significant endings.
The Caravan to Conference.
"Another conference here in Phili. My LAST conference here in Phili. :((( I teared up after the afternoon session yesterday when I realized that was the last time that I will ever watch conference here at a church with people speaking another language and not understanding English and sweating even though I am at church and eating rice in between the morning and afternoon sessions and being with my family here in Phili!:(( It is all so sad."
