Afterwards, Brother Cesar Cruz, the assistant district supervising minister, preached another lesson this time in Filipino, which is also spoken widely in the province being the Philippine’s national language.
“The activity we conducted today is part of the series of evangelical missions in our district. Right now, here in the Municipality of Marcos, Ilocos Norte, the brethren from the nearby local congregations helped prepare the venue under the leadership of the Church officers,” said Brother Cruz in an interview. “Pamphlets and Pasugo magazines distribution were instituted by the brethren and invited many people to this important activity.”
