About Philippines Manila Mission
If you forget what you learned on your mission, what was the point? Your mission is a beginning, the foundation, the MTC for the rest of your life. It shouldn’t stand out as a unique opportunity or singular event. It is a stepping stone that prepares you for life and everything else you have to do.
The Philippines Manila Mission app helps missionaries use the friendships, experiences and skills gained on their mission as a foundation upon which they can build the rest of their lives. It is the easiest way to connect with returning missionaries wherever you are in the world.
Your mission has set you on a path toward eternal life. This app will help you plan the post-mission steps of that path involving future goals, such as family, service, education, and professional growth.
This app helps returning missionaries use their mission experiences to plan for continued, lifelong discipleship. It will help you:
• Maintain your mission habits of sleep, exercise, and gospel study.
• Develop spiritual and temporal self-reliance.
• Budget and use money wisely.
• Stay informed about mission and alumni news and events.
• View photos and profiles, communicate and see where everyone is now.
• Share your personal plans and success with your mission president and mentors.
• Update your profile and contact information through the app.
• Get help in preparing résumés and getting career or vocational guidance.
We are delighted to invite all missionaries serving in the Philippines Manila Mission to join us in building a strong accountability group and alumni community second to none. Our goal is to surround our returned missionaries by a village of people that won’t allow you fail.
You are invited to use this app share your plans with you mission president, stake president, parents, local Church leaders, and others that are willing to help and support you in your efforts to remain a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ. It will help your parents and Church leaders continue to follow up and support the goals and plans that you choose.
Use this app to create a plan of continued discipleship. Share your plans with your parents, bishop, and ward leaders. Ask them to follow up with you every month to see how you are doing with your goals.
Elder W. Christopher Waddell of the Seventy said, “In whatever manner the Lord may choose to bless us during the course of a mission, blessings of missionary service are not designed to end when we are released by our stake president. Your mission is a training ground for life. The experiences, lessons, and testimony obtained through faithful service are meant to provide a gospel-centered foundation that will last throughout mortality and into the eternities” (“The Opportunity of a Lifetime,” Ensign or Liahona, Nov. 2011, 50).
