The Ecclesiastical District of Pampanga East, in the Philippines, recently established Pansinao Extension, under the supervision of the Local Congregation of Candaba.
Brother Eliseo Valle, the Church’s Records Custodian, officiated at the inaugural worship service of the newly established extension on April 2, 2022.
“We are overjoyed,” Joel Mapiles, head deacon, expressed. “Through the help of the Lord God and the guidance of the Church Administration, we now have our own place of worship here in Pansinao.”
The house of worship for the extension was donated by Brother Renato Herrera.
“To God be the glory. We prayed and waited for the Church Administration’s approval of this extension. We know that helping in the edification of the brethren and propagation of the gospel is a Church member’s duty. As we are blessed by our Lord God, it is only fitting that we return all the glory to Him,” Herrera said.
“We thank our Lord God and also the Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, for approving the extension in our place. We will continue our worship services here,” he added.
“Before the establishment of the extension in Pansinao, brethren there had to commute going to the house of worship of Candaba, which is approximately six kilometers away. Now that they have their own place of worship, all the more that they will be able to participate in all Church activities, especially attending worship services and in sharing the true faith,” said Brother Rene Ocampo, the resident minister. — With reports from INC News Section
