“This kind of activity helps the newly baptized [brethren], Bible students, and candidates for baptism to be active [in their services to the Lord God],” Honeylynn Buccat, KADIWA president, said.
On November 7, 2021, the Local Congregation of Beaconsfield, Quebec in the Ecclesiastical District of Ottawa, Canada conducted a “Welcome, My Brethren” activity through videoconferencing. From the comfort of their homes, brethren, together with doctrinal instructees and prospective members, attended the activity.
Brothers Gibrl Legaspi and Michael Dallo, resident minister and ministerial worker, respectively, spearheaded the activity facilitated from the local congregation’s conference room, with the help of Christian Family Organizations (CFO) officers.
In the activity, the newly baptized brethren, as well as the doctrinal instructees and prospective members, were introduced to the brethren. The CFO officers also welcomed them to their respective organizations. Afterwards, the brethren watched musical presentations of Iglesia Ni Cristo original music and participated in fun games. To learn more about the Church, the new and prospective members engaged in virtual Bible quizzes together with the brethren.
“[This activity] not only strengthens the faith of our brothers and sisters, but also encourages our brethren to invite their friends and guests and to participate in the work of propagation,” said Mikaela Salvo, Children’s Worship Service (CWS) president.
“We will be united with the Church Administration, all the time, in their campaign concerning the intensified work of propagation. We will invite many more people, register more new Bible students, so that many more people will come back to our Lord God in serving Him until they receive the promised salvation,” Brother Legaspi said. — With reports from INC News Section
