The Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) recently opened a group worship service in the town of Quepos, its second in the Central American country of Costa Rica.
The district supervising minister, Brother Jonathan Jamias, officiated at the inaugural worship service held at the function hall of Best Western Hotel.
Brother Jamias exhorted the new GWS’s members, during his homily, that as part of God’s nation in these last days, they must live in accordance to His will to receive the promised salvation on Judgment Day. He also encouraged them to be all the more devoted in their worship service to God, especially now that they have their own place of worship.
“We thank our Lord God so much for having a group worship service here in Quepos, for it will now be easier for our brethren to conduct their worship of God,” the district supervising minister said in an interview afterwards.
The brethren from Quepos used to travel more than 200 kilometers to reach the place of worship in San Jose. “We were traveling for three to five hours,” recalled Jose Joaquin Lopez Poras. He and fellow Quepos GWS members expressed gratefulness to the Lord God and to the Church Administration for the blessing they received.
On the brethren’s behalf, Brother Mark Delingon, minister of the gospel, said: “We will uphold our services to our Lord God, no matter what we experience in life.”
