They were from the ecclesiastical districts of Laoag City, Quezon, Quezon East, and Lingayen, Pangasinan, all of which are located in Luzon, Philippines. Hosted by Church officers from the ecclesiastical districts of Bulacan and Quezon City, the tour brought the delegates at Iglesia Ni Cristo museums in Punta, Sta. Ana, Manila, and in Quezon City, and the house of worship compound of the Local Congregation of F. Manalo, San Juan where the INC Central Office was once situated.
The KADIWA members also went at the Philippine Arena, and The Garden in Ciudad de Victoria Complex, Bocaue, Bulacan, as well as the studio of Net 25 in Quezon City.
The last stop, which was also the two-day tour’s highlight, was the Central Temple, wherein the brethren were able to not only visit but also attend a worship service.
“It’s a great experience to visit the Church’s heritage sites for the first time,” enthused Jeffrey Albalate from Quezon District.
“It was a great experience to be involved in these activities. We’ve been to many places since the first day, which totally refreshed our knowledge of the Church history, how it began and its continues growth,” said Kimberly Albios from Laoag City. — With reports from Billy Joe Tan of the INC News Section
