Held at the museum’s pavilion, the activity was led by the congregation’s resident minister, Brother Regino Manangan Jr. During the evangelical mission, which preceded the Aid to Humanity event, he taught from the Bible that while people have different cultures, God expects all to search for the truth or His teachings and believe in them. He emphasized to them that faith is proven by obedience to such biblical teachings, which includes “joining the one true Church—the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ).”
Still consulting the Bible, Brother Manangan then answered questions from the audience regarding the teachings of God being upheld inside the Church. One of the questions was why the Church Of Christ neither has graven images nor use cross for worship. In answer, Brother Manangan cited Bible verses proving that it is God Himself Who forbids such acts.
After the evangelical mission, Church officers handed over care packages. Recipients, like Loretta Hasu, the museum manager, expressed thankfulness to the kind gesture of the brethren. She said in the museum staff’s behalf, “We are privileged to actually have you here. These gifts will go a long way. Each of us appreciated these very much.”
