Reaping the fruits of the brethren’s unceasing efforts in sharing the true faith, three congregations under the supervision of the Ecclesiastical District of Mediterranean held baptisms of new converts.
The baptisms were held on July 16 and 18, by the Limassol Group Worship Service (GWS), in Cyprus, and by the local congregations of Tel-Aviv and Haifa, in Israel, respectively. Brother Ramil Regino, the district supervising minister, officiated at the baptismal services.
After the sacred gathering in the place of worship of the GWS in Limassol, the would-be members, accompanied by the brethren instrumental in their conversion, proceeded to Lady’s Mile Beach. There, Brother Pepito Acuesta, the assistant district supervising minister, and Brother Michael Soriano, the resident ministerial worker, baptized them as prescribed in the Bible.
Meanwhile, the baptism of new converts of Tel-Aviv and Haifa congregations was carried out in the Sea of Galilee with assigned ministers and ministerial workers from Israel, together with brethren from Jerusalem Congregation, which served as witnesses in the said baptism.
The Ecclesiastical District of Mediterranean supervises congregations of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) in countries bordering the Med. The district office is in Athens, Greece. — With reports from INC News Section
