Get a Headstart on Tagalog LDS Vocabulary

I had about a 4 month wait from the time I received my call until the time I actually entered the MTC. Since I worked at the MTC at the time, I was able to get a hold of a copy of the little green Tagalog dictionary that the missionaries use. Getting a headstart with learning some basic vocab words beforehand was a great help for me when I actually entered the MTC to learn the language. If you’re learning Tagalog for your mission, here’s some common LDS vocabulary that could be good to become familiar with. (You’ll be using thesea lot in teaching on your mission).
