Key Indicators

La Carlota District President Mario A. Malacaman discussed the major indicators of the growth of the Church. These may include the total membership, the baptism, the temple recommend holders, among others.

Bacolod Philippines Mission First Counselor Avelino Santilan presented a series of plan of action to properly address those key indicators that hinder the possible growth of the Church. He was optimistic by strict obedience of the leaders those things could be achieved. Thus, he said, "plan your work and work your plan."

Success Means Direction

Citing a situation through an illustration, President Christopher Barredo presented failure and success. Soliciting a response from the priesthood in attendance, he received various answers depending on how the member interpreted or conceived what a failure is and what success is.

By referring to the different verses from the scriptures, particularly the Holy Bible, he had pointed out the very lineage of Jesus Christ himself and the possibility why the Book of Mormon came to being.

Those biblical characters like Adam, Noah, Judah, Joseph, David, among others had enjoyed life and attained the blessings in their lives because of the proper guidance and the right direction they had adapted in their life.

"Success in not money. It is about direction," pointed out President Barredo.

This was well emphasized by President Barredo to Priesthood holders of the branches under the District like San Enrique, Ayungon, La Carlota First, La Carlota Second, Masville, Manggapsang, La Castellana, and Moise Padilla.
