On December 5, 2021, married members from the Ecclesiastical District of Italy South attended a special gathering to commemorate the 59th anniversary of their organization, the Buklod.
Most of all, they offered praises and thanks to the Almighty God for the successes He bestowed on this Christian Family Organization through all the years, as well as His abiding guidance through the Church Administration for the security and stability, spiritual and otherwise, of their families and married lives.
Brother Vizar Balcita, the assistant district supervising minister, officiated at the holy occasion in the Local Congregation of Rome, Italy’s house of worship. The brethren from various local congregations gathered in their own houses of worship linked via videoconferencing.
In his Bible-based homily, Brother Balcita reminded the parents of their God-given duty of raising their children in Christian discipline. Appealing to the attendees’ roles as husbands and wives, he reiterated to them their spousal responsibilities, adding inspiration that devotion to them is the key for the doors of God’s blessing to them and their family.
“If the husband and wife will completely obey God’s commands and will live according to His ways, then they will surely receive abundant blessings from the Lord God not only in this life but above all in the life to come,” Brother Balcita emphasized.
The brethren expressed thankfulness to the Church Administration also for strengthening their faith in this time of difficulties and anxieties. They promised to be more steadfast in the faith and continue to serve the Lord God no matter what. ― With reports from INC News Section
