Fellowship with the Sent One of God in the End-Time is a good way to start the year. The brethren from Mindanao were able to celebrate God’s election of them as well as the divine calling received by the beloved Apostle Arsenio Ferriol. They were pleased to have the him in this gathering attended by several areas and regions within Mindanao.
The Missionary Day was held at Capitol University, Cagayan de Oro City. The theme was, “God’s Servants Transformed from Glory to Glory,” taken from 2 Corinthians 3:18.
Brother Rex Garcia, head of the Oras ng Katotohanan Television, spoke the Word of God during the seminar. The Area Coordinators from different parts of Mindanao served as the partakers of the divine worship. Pastor Nick Renton from Ephesus (Zamboanga), led the opening prayer. Cana (Surigao) Area’s Pastor Ricky Lim announced the upcoming activities and gatherings in the church. Pastor Rey Yton, coordinator of Colosse Area (Misamis/Lanao provinces), delivered the greetings to the brethren and visitors alike. Pastor Eman Sedano from Moriah (Davao) presided over the reading of the Holy Scriptures while Pastor Jun Partisalla of Gennesaret (SOCCSKSARGEN), shared the message on the bountiful blessings of God.
On the meditation of the Word of God, Apostle Ferriol touched upon the subject of the Second Coming of Christ. He discussed the doctrine of 70 weeks, advising the listeners to share the Gospel with haste because of the little time left. The audience left the venue inspired and carried with them a renewed commitment. Truly, this is a good start for the Mindanao brethren as they returned to their respective areas ready to do the will of God: to preach the Gospel.
