Culminating on August 31, 2022, the series of evangelical missions, held daily for the entire month by every local congregation in the Ecclesiastical District of Nagoya, Japan, drew many guests and resulted to more people enlisting as new doctrinal instructees.
The ministers and ministerial workers, led by the district supervising minister, Brother Amante Rodriguez, officiated at the propagational activities conducted in each of the congregations’ respective places of worship. Other brethren brought their guests in their homes from where they also witnessed the propagational events through videoconferencing.
Through the Bible-based lessons, the ministers and ministerial workers pointed out and proved that God’s master plan of salvation in the Christian era is through the Church Of Christ. Part of the lessons that were taught in the said evangelical missions were about the importance of not just becoming a member of the true Church in these last days but also of living in holiness to be saved when Judgment Day comes.
One of the guests who attended in the Nagoya Congregation’s house of worship was Jayzel Prestosa. Sharing his observation, he relayed, “The lesson that was taught to us was based from the Bible.” When asked if he would be given another chance to be invited in the near future, he responded, “I will definitely come again.”
On the last day of the month-long propagational activity, an outreach program was held. The brethren in each of the sites handed out care packages to the guests. The packages included basic grocery items, as well as several bags of rice.
Brother Emil Jensen, district edification overseer, expressed, “We wholeheartedly thank the Church Administration for always exhorting us to participate in all the intensive works in the Church, especially in the work of propagation.” — With reports from INC News Section
