    I am an American living in Tacloban PI I was able to go through the Cebu Temple tour twice once with an interested friend. It is a beautiful Temple but arn't they all. It is great that now it will be easier for the pore filippino people to get to the Temple. From where I live it is only a 30 min plane ride but most families cant afford a plane ticket that is around $45 to $65 each For a lot of filippinos thats a months wages the other way is a two hour bus ride and a 5 hour boat ride for about $10 to $15 pluss getting to the temple and meals is still a big drain on the finances.but they will do it by the hundreds.A lot of members are pore in money but rich in spirit. I do wish that the Church news would do an artical on the dance and events of Saturday night it was Wonderful.Over 1000 youth dancing native dances in full costume I hope someone did a professional film that can be bought.

    I originally came from Carmen, Cebu and now live in Canada for over 15 yrs and is serving in the Canadian Forces Navy. I've joined the church in 1993 and the only member of my family. My parents have passed away recently and because of the Temple tour, my siblings and their families were brought together. They had such a wonderful, happy feeling inside the Temple. The Spirit of the Lord was so strong testifying to them that it is His Holy House. They said that they never had experienced something like that before because it was their first time. The Cebu Temple is a great blessing to my family. I know that the Lord heard my prayers and of this I dedicate my life to my Savior Jesus Christ to serve Him with all my heart, might, mind and strength until the end of my days.

    Hopefully a future article will note how many ordinance rooms and how many sealing rooms are in this temple.

    I just looked through all 15 pictures attached to this article and there's not one that shows the temple itself, at least to get an idea what it looks like!

    This is a great day for the LDS Filipinos in the Visayas and Mindanao. Having been there over 30 years ago in that region, I only wish I could have been there to enjoy this first hand.
