men fellowship

Men Fellowship led by Pastor Ramon Padilla

Highlights:

Last August 20, 2017, Sis. Tess, the widow of Bro. Pablo who was cremated at Santuarium last July 2017, together with her son Niño attended the Sunday worship service. She kept on thanking us — Companion With The Poor, for all the help and sympathy extended to them. As of now, fetching water for the neighborhood serves as their livelihood. They deliver the water using the wooden cart or “kariton” and being paid for 2 pesos per gallon.

Men at Work
Ramon Padilla shared about Connection, Collection and Correction from the book of Philippians during August 20, 2017 worship service and led the Men’s fellowship afterwards (see photos below).Since August 21, 2017 was declared holiday, Men committed themselves to cook for Kids’ Feeding Program.
