“The activity I attended was truly meaningful. I did not regret that I accepted the invitation because, after the event, I learned so much about the Church Of Christ and the film shown to us was inspiring,” said Merly Pangilinan, a guest. She was invited by Brother Roger Evangelista, a deacon in the Local Congregation of Cabanatuan City, to the recent online evangelical mission held by the Ecclesiastical District of Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija, Philippines on August 3, 2021.
“It is important to share our faith to others because it is a commandment of God that we must obey as a member of the Church. This is also part of our active participation in the intensified propagational works launched by the Church Administration,” said Brother Evangelista.
Spearheaded by the Christian Family Organizations (CFO) office, the virtual propagational activity started with a film showing entitled Sandata (Armor) produced by Christian Era Broadcasting Service International, Inc. (CEBSI). It tells about the inspiring true-to-life story of a man whose “armor” in facing life’s difficulties, especially now that there is a pandemic, is his faith to God.
Before the scheduled event, brethren all over the district invited their loved ones and friends through their various social media accounts. While adhering to the health and safety protocols, brethren brought their guests who accepted their invitations to their respective houses of worship to witness the said event.
Meanwhile, due to some restrictions, other guests were brought by the brethren to their homes. Some guests opted to join the videoconference room from the comfort of their houses, through the links that the brethren sent to them.
During the preaching of God’s words taught by Brother Jerson Mabilangan, a minister of the gospel, he emphasized the importance of having a covenant with the Lord God by joining the Church Of Christ to receive the hope of salvation come Judgment Day.
During the event, the province of Nueva Ecija was under Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ), the least strict quarantine classification in the Philippines. — With reports from INC News Section
