KADIWA Meet and Greet
On November 12, the single members ages 18 and up, started new friendships and strengthened old ones during the “KADIWA Meet and Greet” they held at the vast picnic grounds in Scout Hill, Camp John Hay.
The KADIWA officers from the local congregations of Aurora Hill, Pinsao, Kias, Loakan Airport, and Baguio City set up several activity booths for activities that facilitate interaction among the participants.
“Being able to bring smiles to the faces of my fellow youth is heartwarming for me, which is why we strived our best in preparing for this activity,” said Tollie Mar Garcia, district KADIWA president. “Also, I firmly believe that this endeavor further edifies us in the faith.”
Oath-taking of 261 Church officers
The following day, a district-wide special gathering of Church officers was held at the house of worship of Baguio City, during which 261 new Church officers took their oath. Brethren from other local congregations witnessed the event in their respective houses of worship via videoconferencing.
Brother Ian Manalata, assistant district supervising minister, preached a Bible-based lesson regarding the manner by which the true faith can be passed on to the next generation. After the homily, Brother Noli Pineda, district edification overseer, led the oath-taking of new Church officers.
Having heard and felt the concern that the Church Administration has for the youth of the Church just like him, Vixler Tindo, Children’s Worship Service officer, said, “This gathering has further inspired me to fulfill my Church duties to the best of my abilities, especially that of looking after my younger fellow brethren.” — With reports from INC News Section
