May the loving and caring Father in heaven continue to provide your needs and keep you safe.
The COVID-19 cases are surging again in the different parts of our country, especially in the thickly populated areas. Strict border control has been reimposed in different provinces including ours to prevent the spread of the virus, particularly the highly transmissible Delta variant, even as the province remains under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ), which is the lowest restriction category. For the past three weeks until now, we have also been experiencing frequent heavy rainfall due to a typhoon and a low-pressure area inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility. Some places in our town have already been underwater. We are hoping and praying for a fair weather in the following days.
We are truly humbled and greatly rejoicing with the angels in heaven as the Lord continues to show His great mercy and grace to the lost who are seeking Him in their lives. Last month, the Lord washed away the sins of 25 precious souls through their obedience to the gospel in baptism. Most of these people are related to each other. They are cousins, nephews, nieces, friends, and neighbors of our brethren who referred them to us. Let us all praise the Lord and continue to give Him all the glory and honor for our new brothers and sisters in Christ, namely, Rechelle M. Maramba, Ginalyn L. Salazar, Ivee Amor U. Zapanta, Diana Rose M. Calimlim, Jon-Jon D. Royupa, Juliet S. Andaya, Jeric Carlo F. Calaunan, Elizabeth P. Andaya, Rica B. Cabaccan, Vangie A. Idos, Vea F. Idos, Jhulian Kate G. Quitua, Helen P. Bautista, Shaon Aeron B. Dioquino, Rachel L. Gangat, Reggie V. Bautista, Jan Ashley Z. Barcelon, Jane Z. Barcelon, Cedric Rukawa Z. Barcelon, Jacinta L. Zapanta, Aileen C. Gabito, Ailene M. Felix, Karla Marie P. Layno, Nikko J. Calinisan, and Frances Gyle F. Velasco. May the Lord help and bless us as we strengthen the faith of these new Christians.
Thank you very, very much for all you do for the work of the Lord here. The continued works and efforts for the glory of God and for the furtherance of His kingdom here in the Philippines have been made possible because of your continued love, prayers, care, and support.
