With God’s help, the Ecclesiastical District of Isabela West continues to grow over the years. The increase of membership in the district led to the recent establishment of the Local Congregation of Barucboc and San Ramon Extension, which both held their inaugural worship service on November 3, 2021.

Brother Ronilo Delos Reyes, district supervising minister, officiated at both sacred occasions—Barucboc in the morning and San Ramon in the evening. During both gatherings, he taught a lesson explaining why the death of a person who belongs to Christ is considered a blessed death.

“Through our Lord God’s mercy, [the brethren here] bore many fruits in the work of propagation, thus when we requested for a new local congregation, it was approved by the Church Administration,” Brother Wilson Ace Puhay, resident ministerial worker, narrated.

This development brings the total number of local congregations in the district to 85 and the extensions to 19.

Barucboc Local Congregation was formerly an extension of the Local Congregation of Mallig and its chapel is situated at Purok 2B, Barucboc, Quezon, Isabela. The San Ramon Extension, on the other hand, which is situated in the town of Aurora, was formerly a Group Worship Service supervised by the Local Congregation of Aurora Centro. — With reports from INC News Section
