  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Certainly you know that as for our body, that’s where dwells the Holy Spirit that God gave us. We are no longer owners of our body, but rather the one who owns us is God, because what He gave to set us free from slavery is very big. That’s why you must use your body, so that God might be made famous.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
