Our brothers and sisters in Christ from different local churches in Mindanao gathered in the very glamorous worship hall of the Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ (4th Watch) in Davao City to attend the Mindanao Regional Camp 2015. An event that started last May 13 and ended on May 17, 2015, the brethren, longing for empowerment and equipping of the Holy Spirit, got what they desired.
As the words of God were ministered by the anointed servants of Christ, the moving of the Holy Spirit was evident in each believer as each day passed. The speakers for the said gathering were Pastor Polly Mendoza, Davao and Compostela Valley Area Coordinator, Pastor Dan Perez, Panay Island Area Coordinator, and Bishop Art Ferriol, Visayas and Mindanao Regional Overseer. Each speaker encouraged every delegate to believe and take part in the spreading of the Good News throughout the world.
Aside from the spiritual aspects of the Mindanao Regional Camp 2015, different competitions in sports, literary and musical categories were organized to develop the gifts, talents and physical capabilities of the brethren. These activities also promoted fellowship among the brethren and strengthened their spiritual bond as members of the household of God.
The result of the series of meditations on God’s words was seen during the Dedication Night wherein the brethren willingly gave themselves to the work of the Lord. Having been enlightened by the situation of our times, the believers decided to set aside all their worldly aspirations and sought to do the will of God.
The culmination of the Mindanao Regional Camp 2015 was the Grand Worship as the believers came in hundreds and filled the worship hall to overflowing. All were praising the Lord, singing hymns of glory, offering thanksgiving and worshiping the Lord in spirit and in truth.
After all these, each who took part had in their hearts a spiritual fire ignited that will soon burn down the edifices of evil and will serve as a cleansing fire and will purge sin from the world. (R. V. Miciano)
