Winners in the local level competition of the Ecclesiastical District of Australia East’s edition of Songs of Faith, Love, and Hope (SOFLAH) battled it out in the district finals held online on August 22, 2021.
“The brethren prepared by choosing an INC original music to perform and video recorded themselves,” said Inno Revilla, KADIWA district president from the Local Congregation of Minchinbury, New South Wales.
The contestants’ performances were then shown online for the enjoyment and upliftment of the brethren across the district.
“This kind of activity continues to inspire and uplift our spirit especially during this difficult time in our life brought about by the pandemic,” said Felix Santos, the district supervising minister.
Jake Santander from the Local Congregation of Carlingford won in the Buklod Solo category while couple Joseph and Cynthia Annecchini from the Local Congregation of Penrith won in the Buklod Duet.
The other winners were: KADIWA—Alyssa Ventura from the Townsville Local Congregation; Binhi—Jody Villanueva, and CWS—Ysabelle Manzano, both from the Dean Park Local Congregation. ― With reports from INC News Section
