Taguig Team- August 2018

Ministry Highlights

Acquired lot for the Church building. Jesus said to Peter in Matthew 16:18, “..and on this rock I will build my church.” Our team would say, upon this dumped God will build his church. Finally, by the grace of the Lord we are able to buy the 100 square meter corner lot intended for the church building of Christ Jesus Our Life Church (CJOL). In the photo we have representatives from CJOL, our partner church headed by Rev. Onie Avante, CJOL National Director, Pastor Larry Timones, CJOL South Coordinator and Pastor Hosannah Pabalan, partner pastor. Lot owner Mr. & Mrs. Richard and Alma Pagolong. They are also the man of peace in the community. In fact, Alma Pagolong accepted Jesus Christ in her life and currently a volunteer cook in feeding program. Bro. Mc lloyd Lamar is their bible study leader every Tuesday.

Since we started Sunday worship service we already officiated twelve (12) baby dedication. Their parents particularly mother are regularly attending bible study and discipleship. We are blessed to see new generation of God’s children. “Children are heritage from the Lord.” Psalm 127:3. Our prayer that on coming October many will be baptized in water and receive the Holy Spirit.
