Greatly concerned for the welfare of their fellowmen, the four congregations in the Ecclesiastical District of Macau, through the Church’s socio-civic arm, united for a Care for Humanity program on July 30, 2023 to give out care packages to people in need. The said program began with a showing of a short video clip featuring the humanitarian activities of the Church in various part of the world.
Conducted at the Chan Meng Kam Theater in Taipa, Macao, the brethren’s act of kindness was in commemoration of the 109th anniversary of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) and the fifth founding anniversary of their district.
The outreach activity was spearheaded by Brother Celestino Bacsafra, district supervising minister. Along with him were the ministers in the district together with the Church officers.
Grateful for the event, Gina Bentres, one of the beneficiaries, expressed, “Thank you for inviting me. It’s been a pleasure to be part of an event that helps many people.”
“I’m one with the Church in celebrating its 109th anniversary,” said Evelyn Bataan, another beneficiary. “Attending such activity called ‘Care for Humanity’ of the Church Of Christ was a great experience.”
“From the bottom of my heart, I thank the Church very much for the help that was given to me. I truly appreciate it,” enthused Reynaldo Oscariz, a guest.
“The unified efforts of all the brethren who prepared for and participated in the activity were a manifestation of their unity with the Church Administration,” remarked Brother Ruel de Leon, district edification officer.
Thanking God for His guidance throughout the entire Church, including their district, Brother de Leon further said, “We express our heartfelt thanks to the Lord and to the Church Administration, under the leadership of our beloved Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo. We promise to continue doing our part in helping in the Church’s endeavors.” — With reports from Jay Morales of INC News Section
