A new house of worship for the Local Congregation of Lobo, Ecclesiastical District of Batangas, Philippines, was dedicated to the Lord God through a worship service on May 21, 2022, officiated by Brother Israeli Gatchalian, the district supervising minister. It was constructed to replace the old house of worship which sustained damages through the years and could no longer accommodate the growing number of brethren in Lobo. A parsonage was also constructed.
“We, in this ecclesiastical district, are grateful to our Lord God for He continues to use as an effective instrument our Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, in building new houses of worship. To God be all the glory,” Brother Gatchalian said.
The brethren recognize their new house of worship as God’s fulfillment of His promise that will help in strengthening their faith and in the intensified work of propagation.
Expressing the collective promise of the brethren, Aronte Capio, head deacon, enthused, “I will all the more devote myself to fulfilling my duties. I will encourage the brethren to help in guarding and maintaining the orderliness and cleanliness of our house of worship. We will take care of this sacred edifice where we conduct our Church endeavors.”
The brethren are thankful to the Church Administration for the love and concern. They promised to actively participate in all Church activities. ― With reports from INC News Section
