The gatherings in the rest of the areas were led by other designated ministers of the gospel.
The Buklod members were reminded of proper parenting and leading their households in accordance with God’s will. One of the holy intents of the lesson had taught them so that no family member would be derailed from their journey towards the promised salvation on Judgment Day and eternal life in the Holy City.
“Gatherings like this are important for us Buklod members,” said Mila Cabahug, a deaconess from the Local Congregation of Tagbilaran City, “because it helps us to be much better in fulfilling our responsibilities as parents, to guide our children solely with the words of our Lord God.” — With reports from Louise Cabahug of INC News Section
