Camarin Caloocan Area-August 2017

4God Did It! The long wait to have a church building is over and our prayers answered. After a year of doing church planting ministry in Robes I, Camarin, it’s our joy to tell you that we have purchased a property and now have regular worship center. A venue for our children, youth ministry and Sunday worship. Last August 20, we conducted a Church Dedication and celebrated our first year anniversary. During the said event, we were able to gather 10 adults, 3 young people and 22 children. Two of our visitors accepted our Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Ptr. Virgilio Liabres, Head Pastor of Christian Assembly of God Church, officiated the Dedication and Thanksgiving ceremony. We ended the celebration in sharing of foods.

For this month, we opened another 2 new home Bible Studies. Presently, we have 8 active home Bible Studies. And we also revisited and evaluated our strategic plan last August 3, 2017. The whole team is aware and motivated to do all things that we need to improve and prioritize.

Ptr. Marvin Cerina, one of our team members, is on leave. He asked a 1 month vacation because he needs rest. For the past few months, he became sickly. And Ptr. Jhay-r also, a member of our team, has difficulties in life. He regularly meets Ptr. Leo Armas for counseling sessions. Please remember them in your prayers.
