Nowadays, one of the immediate needs of people who eventually lost their jobs, temporarily or permanently, due to the pandemic-induced lockdowns is an additional or alternative source of livelihood.

For brethren from the Local Congregation of Dungan, Ecclesiastical District of Capas, Tarlac who had such need, the Tilapia Raising Seminar they attended on December 4, 2020 was never more timing.

To them it was indeed a great blessing as they could now start a small business raising this freshwater cichlid fish, a favorite food in the Philippines for the variety of delectable meals in which it can be prepared.

Greynold Ramos, an agriculturist and also the Congregation’s 4th head deacon, taught the attendees the proper raising of Tilapia and how they can earn an income from doing so.

“We share the skills in raising Tilapia for Church members and nonmembers so they can have an alternative income in these trying times,” he said. “In handling such business, hands-on and patience are really necessary to build its strong foundation.”

Brother Jayson Mercado, resident minister, clarified the noble aim of the seminar approved by the Church Administration.

“The Church Administration gives aid not only for the brethren’s spirituality but also for their day-to-day living,” he said.

Considering the knowledge and skill they learned blessings from the Lord God, the brethren-participants expressed great hope of getting through hardships in life as they continue their ardent services to Him. ― With reports from INC News Section
