Hours after receiving baptism at the house of worship of Local Congregation of Bangkok, Ecclesiastical District of Thailand, the new full-fledged members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ), as well as the current doctrinal instructees and prospective members, were cordially greeted by the brethren through the activity, “Welcome, My Brethren,” held at the multi-purpose area of the said local congregation on July 30, 2023.
“I thank our Lord God, for through the approval of the Church Administration, we were able to conduct this special activity, for the benefit of the newly-baptized members, doctrinal instructees, and prospective members. The gladness in their faces was truly evident,” said Brother Dionisio Yting Jr., district Light Of Salvation (LOS) overseer.
Brother Willen D. Regalado, district supervising minister, gave the opening remarks, in which he encouraged all those in attendance to continue being dedicated to their active services to the Lord God. It was followed by performances from selected brethren within the district, which even more inspired the attendees. Care packages were also provided to them.
“I am truly grateful to our Lord God, for allowing my fellow brethren to be instrumental in introducing to me the true Church. Now that I am already baptized in the Church Of Christ, I feel that I’ve become closer to Him,” said Nina Mae Fuentes, one of the newly-baptized from the Local Congregation of Rangsit. — With reports from Bea Bianca Manalo of INC News Section
