These are the young people we are helping to ear money so that they can go on a mission. The Church requires that they earn 2500 pesos (abt. $65) themselves towards their mission and then the Church pays for the rest of their mission. This amount of money is almost impossible for some of the young people to earn. Elder Weber paid them to help him paint a house that was being remolded to bring it up to mission standards for Elders to live in. They worked really hard. The money is then given directly to the Bishop or Branch President for their missionary fund. We are really learning to love these Filipino people. Some of them are really hardworking.
