Manila Temple

We attended the Manila Temple with 22 Missionaries and all the Senior Couples on July 26th.  Traditionally, after completing their mission, the exiting missionaries attend the Manila Temple their last day as a missionary.  Because the temple will be closed until November, all the Elders and Sisters who return home in the next several transfers went together to the temple.  We enjoyed spending a beautiful day with our seasoned missionaries.

Project Pie

On the way home from the temple we stopped at Project Pie for dinner, a favorite of the missionaries.  I believe it is also a favorite for the employees as well.  They told us that they love to serve the Mormon Missionaries and they look forward to our visits.  President Speirs and I have been asked a couple of times if we are related to the President & Sister Tye.  It gives us a great lead-in to talk about   the gospel and why we are in the Philippines.
