I’m interested in what the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) believes in and I want to learn about the teachings of God it upholds,” Miriam Reyes, a guest, said before attending the special screening of Kahoy. “The film taught me that we should not worship kahoy (wood),” Reyes said in an interview after watching the film.
“We thank our Lord God and our Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, for this congregation was one of those selected to conduct this special screening. We also thank the Christian Family Organizations (CFO) Coordinator, Brother Angelo Eraño V.
