    Elder D. Todd Christofferson and his wife, Sister Kathy Christofferson, visited Church members in the Philippines. It’s a country made up of more than 7,000 islands. And it has more than 770,000 members of the Church!

    Elder Christofferson taught:

    Be kind and look after others. This is called “ministering.”

    Live the gospel—all of it!

    Share the gospel with others.

    Lots of Church members from the Philippines—especially young women—serve missions. Elder Christofferson said they are known for being good at learning languages.

    The people were very friendly and kind. Elder Christofferson said if you visit the Philippines, you will come home with a smile on your face!

    “It is the small things that make huge differences in the lives of individuals and families.” —Elder D. Todd Christofferson
