'Self-Reliance Is the Beginning of Progress'


“Self-reliance is the ability, commitment, and effort to provide the spiritual and temporal necessities of life for self and family” (Handbook 2: Administering the Church [2010], 6.1.1).

President Sumagpao
President Thomas S. Monson has counseled, “[Self-reliance] is an essential element in our spiritual as well as our temporal well-being.” (“Guiding Principles of Personal and Family Welfare,” Ensign, Sept. 1986, 3)

With the above context, President Elmer Epifanio Sudario Sumagpao of Bacolod Philippines Mission in his message to the 27 Self-Reliance 3-month Workshop and Seminar completers pointed out that self-reliant is not only for temporal aspect of the completers but also for their spiritual self-reliance. He further said that they have to work hard to sustain their family.

"Self-reliance is the best thing.  It's the beginning to avail of progress in their lives. And sacrifice is a requirement to have a better result. Thus, to follow the God's commandments is to become self-reliant," concluded President Sumagpao.

God's Goal Is Unstoppable

Sister Leanell Pascua Melad Sumagpao relayed to the successful completers that behind the recognition that they may be receiving by and by, they may be using their skills to overcome fear. God wants them to grow, to be self-reliant and in return God bless them.

God's goal is unstoppable for God wants them to assist His children.

'No Surrender. Don't Say No'

Brother Erwin J. Boiser, Church Welfare Coordinator stressed the principle of "no surrender" and "Don't Say No" by citing the practical examples of the turtle and the rabbit and the three frogs in his message respectively.
