A TRUE FINISHER

A true finisher has six marks, according to Elder Thomas S. Monson: "A mark of vision,a mark of effort, a mark of virtue, a mark of courage, and a mark of prayer." These signposts remind us of a Church member. He is brother Gilbor I. Camporazo, the busiest man in the ward and a man with diverse talents.

Born in La Carlota City on October 13,1951, Bro. Camporazo was baptized in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on April 20, 1980. Before he became the member of the Bishopric (as the first counselor to Bishop Joaquin Villarias), he was called as the President of Elder's Quorum, Ward Clerk, Elder's Quorum Secretary, and teacher of Gospel Doctrine, Priesthood, Temple Preparation and Member-Missionary classes.

Bro. Camporazo is always busy being the chapel custodian, yet he has never neglected his family nor his various church callings. His wife, Rebecca and their five children namely: Greg, Dona Greece, Genevieve Aura, Gynrey, and Geeree are all active in the church, and are supportive of him especially in his church assignments.

On March 31, 1985, Bro. Camporazo earned the degree of Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (BEED) in La Carlota City College with honors. He was awarded a Gold Medal as the Most Outstanding Student of Class '85 and was named as the Top Academic Awardee of the Year.

Also he also received recognition from the Office of Media Affairs, Iloilo City, Region VI - Western Visayas for having done a remarkable performance in the promotion of national development goals both in school and in the community through campus journalism. An "Iwag" Award, a prestigious recognition to outstanding campus editor, was given to him.

His extra-curricular activities made him an active student leader. He had been the President of Education Department (for two consecutive years), Junior and Senior Class Organizations, Speaker of Supreme Student Republic, Assemblyman to Student College Assembly,and a Group Leader of Education Student interns.

In his stint as a college campus journalist, he was the Editor-in-Chief of the "College Voice," (the official publication of La Carlota City College),for two consecutive years, and Associate and News Editor.

Bro. Camporazo manifesting the mark of "a true finisher" in September 1984, he was sealed to his wife, Rebecca and children in the Manila Philippine Temple for time and eternity.

As a teacher, he always emphasizes the six marks of a true finisher. As a guest speaker during their Recognition Day in college, he expounded fully the essence of Elder Monson's "Finishers Wanted." Towards the end of his speech he bore testimony of the truthfulness of Christ's Gospel and his membership in the Church.

  1. it is seldom that we meet people who are passionate about their works and faith. and it is also seldom that a man would truly stand up for his faith because nowadays most men holds beer instead of their bibles. :)
