Sunday Worship

In spite of the tension our team is facing due to the harassment of SIKAP officers / leaders to us and the church members, we still continually do the regular ministry. We thank God that our feeding program is back to normal though we cannot use the original unit / building where we conduct the program.

The TINIG President and its members asked our team to lead them on a daily prayer. To pray for God’s help and intervention against the harassment of the SIKAP leaders. Every 3 o’clock in the afternoon our team and the TINIG members around 20 adults gather together in prayer at the church.

For this month we were able to open 2 new Bible study groups. One of which is with Nanay Marigen who is sick of Lupus. She was diagnosed 3 years ago and currently undergoing medication. The Lord led our team to her for encouragement and prayer.
We have 15 adults attending our Sunday worship this month. For the first time we have attendance of a whole family (husband and wife and their son).

Plans for the next Month

1.    To discuss the possibility of conducting Mass Wedding in the area
