Elder Carlos G. Revillo, Jr. of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day presided over the semi-annual conference of La Carlota Philippines District held at La Carlota Meetinghouse, Saturday, February 9, 2019.

In the Adult session of the said conference, he counseled the members about the importance of a family. These members are composed of different auxiliary leaders of the Moises Padilla, La Castellana, Manggapsang, Masville, La Carlota 1st, La Carlota 2nd, Ayungon, and San Enrique.

To emphasize his message, he showed a video message of President Russell M. Nelson on home which is considered spiritually as sanctuary of faith on October 2018 General Church conference.
He cited a portion of the message President Nelson on "Becoming Exemplary Latter-day Saints", especially about home.

"The new home-centered, Church-supported integrated curriculum has the potential to unleash the power of families, as each family follows through conscientiously and carefully to transform their home into a sanctuary of faith..."

He elaborated the new church curriculum which is centered on home. By using it, the home would become a "sanctuary of faith."

Earlier Sister Marites F. Revillo, wife of Elder Revillo shared her observation of other country as far as Gospel study, reading of the Church scriptures and Church activity, which is too far or far-fetched compared to us as a Filipino member of the Church. Their system is beyond reproach, very commendable. They don't need to be prodded or reminded every time there is a Church activity.

She also showed concern on how to help members who are not spiritually uplifted. She said that if they want to help, they should be in the higher ground. Thus, it is easy to lift those who are weak in faith up in that kind of situation.

Bacolod Mission President Sumagpao and his wife, Sister Sumagpao took turn of sharing their message to spiritually strengthen the members in attendance. So as with President Malacaman and Sister Fe Vergara have shared a message.

On Leadership Training

Elder Revillo checked the leaders on vital concern of their respective units or branches. He mentioned the earlier the meeting he had with President Mario A. Malacaman in which the issues tackled for making the La Carlota District strong are as follows: Melchizedek Priesthood, Welfare and Self-reliance.

Those concerns should be addressed properly or else they would be "cursed with a curse" especially in keeping the Law of Tithing.

Thus, he enumerated the three priorities to resolve those things. The members must be obedient (Law of Tithing, Sacrament Attendance, Family History). Next is to keep their covenant and establish a home, a Gospel-centered home.

Conference Music

The 31-member Choir of La Carlota District under Music Director Mae I. Escalante as chorister and Sister Missionary Hostetter on the piano provided the music for the Adult session of the conference. They rendered a special number, a medley of Lead Me Into Life Eternal (Hymn No. 45) and Behold! A Royal Army (Hymn No. 251), and a closing hymn, “In Our Lovely Deseret” (Hymn No. 307).

Sunday Session

The Sunday Session of the conference is to be held at the respective branches to their local area. It would be presided over by their respective branch president unless a visiting local authority is in attendance,.
