During the evangelical mission on May 7, 2023, conducted by the Local Congregation of Lutopan in the Ecclesiastical District of Carcar City, Cebu, the brethren were able to invite 839 guests. A total of 103 of them enlisted as new doctrinal instructees immediately afterwards.
The missionary activity was held at the Carmen Copper Corporation Gym, in Don Andres Soriano (Lutopan), Toledo City, Cebu, with Brother Sergio Vista, the district supervising minister, officiating. He taught the attendees, citing verses in the Bible, about the importance of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) and that joining it is necessary so that people can be certain of salvation when the Day of Judgment comes.
The response of those who were invited was positive. The biblical message paved the way for the guests to continue listening to the teachings of God that the members of the Church Of Christ firmly believe in.
Elma Sanchez, one of those who enlisted to become doctrinal instructees, not only thanked Jonalyn Laruap who invited her to the evangelical mission but most especially “God, for giving me this opportunity to know Him better. It gave me clarity to many of my questions about religion. Here I understood the truth I’ve been looking for a long time now.”
“The Church members’ enthusiasm is in unity with the Church Administration in the intensive works of propagation,” said Brother Elizalde Lamina, resident minister, on behalf of the brethren. — With reports from Kenny Mae Largo of INC News Section
