Ministry Highlights

Amazing Christmas Celebration.
Our Christmas Celebration was really amazing. Prior to this, the team has been so busy in the preparations for gift giving to the church members in our ministry area. It was really tiring yet worth it! It is our joy to serve the poor. During the event, we were able to gather sixty seven (67) children that exceeded our target. We prepared gifts for thirty (30) children only. Praise the Lord for Sis. Naidy, one of our volunteers, together with her officemates because they brought gifts for the children. Thus, each one of the children received their own gift.

We invited ten (10) young people, gladly, fifteen (15) were present. Bro. Jhe-r was in-charge to give gifts to them. He prepared t-shirts printed with We love because He first loved us (I John 4:19). After the Christmas Celebration, Ptr. Marvin and Bro. Jhe-r with the young people went to SM Fairview to have their own fellowship and enjoyed eating “chicken inasal”.

The team and volunteers decided to pledge a certain amount for the gifts and foods. We were able to prepare simple Christmas gift packs for twenty five (25) mothers and food for everyone. We have finished our Christmas Celebration with gladness. To God be the Glory!
