May the Lord’s love, blessings, and care continue to abound in you and your loved ones.
Due to the increasing number of COVID-19 positive cases in our province and even in our town in Calasiao, our local government decided to put the whole municipality under stricter community quarantine. We are given again a quarantine pass per household that we should present upon entering the market on our given schedules. All those who are 21 years old below and 60 years old above are not allowed to go out again. These restrictions will continue until further notice. Because of our present situations, we have been conducting our church services in different barangays where our brethren are. In this way, we continue to see and encourage each other to keep serving the Lord, especially those who have been added by the Lord into His family recently.
We appreciate all the efforts of our brethren in helping us to reach out to the people in their community. As we continue to motivate and encourage them to be involved in the work of evangelism, they keep on inviting and telling their relatives, friends, and neighbors the importance of the Word of God in their lives. We are just so happy and thankful to see that every time we get to their place, they and those that they have invited are already there ready to study with us. We can see that they are really interested in what the Lord will say according to the Scriptures, and we are very thankful to God for all these opportunities that He has given us amidst these trying and difficult times.
We greatly rejoice with the angels in heaven and give God all the glory and honor for saving 25 precious souls last month. Most of these conversions are young people and came from Catholicism. The new members of the Lord’s family are Mary Joy Nuñez, Danica Gorospe, Randy Doot, Vilma Benavidez, Christopher Royupa, Maribeth Benavidez, Angela Gilledo, Brenda De Vera, Narcisa Ramos, Eugenio Sarmiento, Katrinalyn Sarmiento, Dhaizie Soringa, Abegail Mae Tudayan, Sharon Abelgos, Krissa Joy Benavidez, Conchita Barongan, John Vincent Devera, Daniella Royupa, Avril Joy Devera, Angelica Delos Santos, Rhealyn Dagarag,
Kristine Charisse Dagarag, Zharina Dagarag, Genelyn Barongan, and Ramie Capito. Most of these new Christians are related to each other. Some of them are siblings, cousins, nephews, and nieces. The brethren who live in their area are instrumental in their conversions. We have been studying with some of them already for the past months and years, but through the continued godly influence, good relationship, and encouragement of our brethren to these precious souls to serve the Lord, their desire to make their hearts right with God was rekindled. Upon realizing and understanding that they were separated from God and nothing but the blood of Jesus can wash away their sins, they decided to be buried with Christ in baptism. Please remember these new brothers and sisters in Christ in your prayers and also our follow-up Bible studies with them for their spiritual growth.
Thank you very, very much for having a part in 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.
