There was nothing small about what happened last Sunday at the AATF Sports Complex in Malagasang, Imus, Cavite as the PMCC (4th Watch) opened the 23rd International Convention. Everything was large-scale, grand, orderly, and worthy of the glory of God.
Themed “The Church Prepared by the Goodman of the House in the End-Time (Matthew 24:43),” the opening ceremonies of this anticipated, global event of God’s people was already a preview of the fruits of the teaching of God’s Sent One, Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol.
Big in Attendance
First of all, the brethren arrived early, obviously eager to be blessed during the event. Judging by the sheer number of brothers and sisters inside the Complex and in the grounds that the event was going to be packed. Sure enough, by the time the Orientation (which was given by Bishop Art Ferriol) started, the AATF Sport Complex was filled up to the topmost bleachers. And more were still arriving.
Big in Praising
Then the brethren joined in on an amazing Praise and Worship after the Orientation. Featuring lively praise music and an impressive lights and sound set up, the Praise and Worship was both a surprise and a joy for those who love singing praises to the Lord. The praises didn’t end with the Praise and Worship singing though, as the brethren continued to give their praises and adoration to God throughout the whole event. It was a joyful noise unto the Lord, and the whole Church was pretty comfortable and excited making such a noise.
Big in Guests
Some of the Goodman’s friends from other fellowships were also there to deliver some very kind words in appreciation of Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol’s friendship and, more importantly, ministry. Big names in their own fields and fellowships, Pastor Roque, Pastor Irvin Mesa, Pastor Salterio, and Bro. Eddie Villanueva, praised God for the awesome things that He was doing through His Apostle. And if the guests were in agreement of one thing, it was that they were in awe of the accomplishments of Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol for God and the Church.
Big in Blessings
Afterwards, came the highlight of the event: the Worship Service, where the Goodman of the House, Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol delivered the Words of God and blessed all those who were in attendance. It was a big start to a big event, and everyone, as they eagerly awaited the coming days and activities, were expecting big blessings as well. (A. Miciano)
