The rush of Maranatha Bible School student delegates from all over the Philippines crowded at the Pentecostal Missionary CHURCH of CHRIST (4th Watch) Marikina Locale sanctuary as this year's MBS Conference began last November 17, 2015.
The event began as the dawn approaches and the daily morning devotion commenced. Eager to be once again be filled with the Holy Spirit, the delegates were earnest in listening as Pastor Rex Garcia ministered the Words of God before kneeling for the prayer.
For the Opening Service, Pastor Rene Fremista, as the offertory message speaker, encouraged the students to further practice gratitude to the Lord through giving. The Goodman of the House, Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol, imparted a timely message for the attendees. He declared, "Be a man of honor. We are called to be like Christ. When you are sure about that, you will never fall.". A challenge for the students to further observe holiness and service for the glory of God.
Seminar 1 followed with Bishop Art as the speaker. He dwelled on the topic, "The Supremacy of God's Calling Above All Things". He is also the speaker at the Soul Winners Night wherein he reminded the students saying, " If you are aware of your calling, it will lead you to live honorably."
The first day concluded successfully as the delegates went to the mess hall before retreating to their dormitories to ready themselves for the outpouring of blessings for the next day.
