Being productive despite the current Covid-19 pandemic, Iglesia Ni Cristo families from the Ecclesiastical District of Pampanga East participated in a districtwide Christian Family Organizations (CFO) online activity “Photo and Short Filmmaking Contest” on May 14, 2020.
The district CFO officers shared with the brethren knowhow about photography and video editing. With the theme, “Sambahayang Iglesia Ni Cristo sama-samang nakikipagkaisa sa mga aktibidad sa lahat ng sitwasyon at panahon (INC families unite in Church activities in all life situations),” the brethren then shot their one- to two-minute-long films while others did their best in photography.
Three entries that won in the Short Film competition were: “Katatagan (Fortitude)” from San Pablo-Sta. Ana Congregation in the third place; “Masiglang Sambahayan (Active Family)” from Magalang Congregation in the second place; and “Kumusta Ka, Kapatid? (How are you, brethren?)” from San Nicolas-Arayat Congregation in the first place. Meanwhile, in the photo contest, Shana Rei Garcia, Danah Franchezka Sienes, and Daivin Zcionne Gopez won in the third, second, and first place, respectively.
The winners said that they will continue to unite with the activities being launched in spite of the current deplorable situation of the world. They said that activities like this not only make them bond more with their respective families but also strengthen them in the faith which, they said, is the most important nowadays, all for God’s glory.
Before the activity concluded, the Church officers gave some safety reminders for their family’s welfare. — With reports from INC News Section
