Held within the Philippine Arena grounds in Bocaue, Bulacan, Philippines, the multifaceted event called CFO LIVE benefited thousands of brethren and guests alike on May 13, 2023.

CFO stands for the Christian Family Organizations, which comprises various organizations in the Church, which are the Buklod, KADIWA, Binhi, Pagsamba Ng Kabataan (PNK), Christian Brotherhood International (CBI), Society of Communicators and Networkers International (SCAN), Christian Society for the Deaf, among others, all of which were featured through the booths mounted all over the place by the CFO Office.

LIVE, on the other hand, symbolizes livelihood, interaction, values, and entertainment, which were also showcased throughout the day’s event.

Brethren from 40 neighboring ecclesiastical districts in Bataan, Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Metro Manila, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Pangasinan, Rizal, Tarlac, and Zambales flocked to the venue. They and their guests participated in various booths, some of which were the Buklod Trade Fair, KADIWA Meet & Greet, Binhi Friendship Games, PNK Bond and Games, SCAN Endurance Challenge, CSD Activities, CFO Today, Fun Activity, INC Radio, New Era University (NEU), and INCTV.

“The trade fair aims to help brethren in their livelihood as they can present and promote their products and services,” Marlon Mercado, Buklod president of the Ecclesiastical District of Caloocan North, explained.

“Our products were well received by the brethren. This trade fair has been truly a big help for us, entrepreneurs in the micro business,” said Gina Esguerra from the Ecclesiastical District of Tarlac City, Tarlac. “This also served as a bonding moment for our family,” added Lina Millaranda from Cavite Ecclesiastical District.

Meanwhile, the Binhi Friendship Games featured basketball arcade, buzz wire, “Shake It Out,” among others, which the young members so enjoyed.

“We thank the Church Administration because in big events, such as this, we become more active in our services to our Lord God, steadfast in the love of brotherhood, and further strengthened in the faith,” Niño Miguel Santos from Pampanga West Ecclesiastical District expressed. — With reports from Namilhyn Komatsu, Janina Gayle Prollo, and Samantha Claire Butuyan of INC News Section
