Months of prayer, fasting and preparation brought about victory to the brethren of the Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ (4th Watch) of Hong Kong-Macau District as they held the 1st Jezreel Area Fellowship with the theme “Growing Up In Jesus (Ephesians 4:15 )” at Soﬁtel Hotel, Macau on August 25, 2019.
Hindrances may arise yet every miracle do happen when you only believe. This is the evidence of your FAITH. The idea of strong belief even you have not seen it yet, made impossible things into reality. For some reason, the liberation of having freedom from the bondage of sin is the true essence of salvation through faith that was shown upon hearing the word of God.
The Divine Worship started with a parade of colors followed by the entrance of Muses and Escorts, Elders, Ministers, and Program Partakers. As the celebration went on, with a joint area performing an opening salvo and dance performance participated by the ﬁve local churches that uplifted the spirits of the crowd. This colorful and dynamic opening salvo displayed a variety of artistic talent through String, Ribbon, Kung Fu, Umbrella and Fan dancing with the Chinese Hymns.
Pastor Elisa Bregaña, HK – Macau District Area Coordinator and Macau Locale Head Pastor warmly welcomed the congregation in her heartwarming Welcome Remarks. Sister Byron De Leon spearheaded the Worship Service as the Master of Ceremonies, while Sister Diane Soniga with the Macau Praise and Worship Team led the congregation in the soulful songs of praises unto the Lord. Pastor Wennie Santander led everyone in a fervent and heartfelt Opening Prayer. Afterward, Pastor Ramil De Leon, Minister from Taipa Locale led the Reading of the Scriptures. Tsuen Wan Locale Head Minister, Pastor Lito Roblon delivered the Oﬀertory Message. He explicated the ministry of giving and how the early churches accomplished such a noble ministry. He also reiterated that our service in giving proves how much we love the Lord and His mission.
One of the highlights of the event was an audio-visual presentation that featured Hong Kong Macau Local Church’s Timeline. From its humble beginnings up to now, God never failed to show His grace and mercy that He made everything possible for His Church. Following an array of songs of praise by various locales (Yuen Long , Taipa, Shau Kei Wan, Tsuen Wan & Macau) was the introduction of the keynote speaker once again lead by the humble coordinator Pastor Elisa Bregaña.
With the theme, “Growing Up In Jesus”, the event was even more blessed to have Presbyter Leticia S. Ferriol as our keynote speaker. All were blessed as they heard the Evangelist preach on the privilege of being children of God and the blessing of being entitled to be used for the mission.
An altar call shortly proceeded the message, where Prysbyter Leticia Ferriol encouraged everyone to be used by God. Many dedicated themselves to the mission of God and dedicated themselves to greater works.
At night, a presentation of God’s given talents were conducted wherein the attendees performed for the Talents Night. Everyone was awed by the performances and praised God for the talents and gifts that were given for the glory of God. Their extraordinary talents were further used as vessels to elevate God through the talents that night that quickly followed the mass evangelism. Lastly, with much appreciation and gratitude a plaque handed to Presbyter Leticia Ferriol coming from Jezreel Ministers headed by area coordinator Pastor Elisa Bregaña.
Truly, this momentous celebration will be a remarkable milestone in remembering God’s glorious work in the End-Time Church. The 1st Jezreel Area Fellowship ended perfectly by the grace of God.
