Tatay Lero is in the middle standing on a tire. he is 55 i think.  he is awesome!
We are so incredibly blessed. I want to share about one of my role models that I have met here on my mission. Probably the nicest person on the planet. Tatay Lero. He is an amazing person. He has four kids who range from age 21 to age 28. When the oldest was 11 years old his wife left him and he wasn’t a member at the time. He would work constantly for his family and his home was a room probably 6x7 feet. For 5 people. He raised his kids by himself and they are all amazing people. He has gone through the hardest of times and his family is amazing. I don’t know why I am so blessed. I don’t understand it and I don’t think I ever will understand it. But he is an example to me. I have been incredibly humbled here in the Philippines and I can’t believe all that I have taken for granted.
