“We held a week-long devotional prayer,” disclosed Ressie Beronio, the head deacon. “During this period, we invited our our loved ones and friends, informing them that the preaching of God’s words will be held in both Filipino and Cebuano. This caught their attention and many accepted our invitation.”
Members of the local congregation also handed out Pasugo: God’s Message magazines as well as pamphlets to their neighbors and friends whom they invited to the evangelistic event.
