Today, we went to church with 2 sister sisters (like us) that are serving in the Area Office here in Manila. In Sacrament Meeting, a young man opened his 'mission call letter' and bore a beautiful testimony...in 'tanglish', a cross between tagalog and English. We sang from an English hymnal, the announcements/business were in English, and the talks were half English and half tagalog. The Sunday School and Relief Society lessons were in English, but some of the comments were in tagalog, and prayers were all in tagalog. We were told that everyone understands English, but many are uncomfortable speaking it. English and Tagalog are both National Languages.
|We passed our MTC office training!|
Our adventure continues.
Love to you!
