A day of celebration for 14 years of God’s faithfulness and abundant blessings to His Church in Singapore was not enough that is why all throughout the year, the members of the Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ (4th Watch) Singapore Locale had been preparing through prayer and fasting for their much awaited 14th church anniversary. The celebration was held on July 16, 2017 at the Mandarin Orchard Hotel with the theme Pursuing Soul-Winning through Apostolic Authority from Matthew 28:19-10. Jubilance filled the Grand Mandarin Ballroom as more or less 1,500 brethren, including guests, occupied the seats with hearts overflowing with delight as the partakers for the day’s worship paraded the halls along with their special guest, the Evangelist, Pastor Leticia Ferriol.
The service started as the Singapore Praise and Worship Team led the brethren in singing songs of praises. Afterwards, a choir of selected female brethren rendered solemn songs of praises to God in preparation for the message. Pastor Raquel dela Cruz, head pastor of Singapore Local Church, gave the introductory speech for the keynote speaker, Evangelist Leticia Ferriol. The sanctity and purity of the Word of God delivered by the Evangelist uplifted the spirits of the congregation, transforming the hearts and minds of each member into renewing their dedication to the ministry of soul-winning as response to the mandate that has been given by God through His Apostle in the End-Time.
On that very same day, the powerful message of truth brought a crowd of visitors to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. Before the service concluded, Mr. Ranvir Singh, President of the Philippine Bayanihan Society Singapore—an outreach ministry partner during the past year, gave his warmest greetings for the locale church of Singapore. Consul Mersole Mellejor, on behalf of Ambassador Antonio Morales of the Philippine Embassy who couldn’t make it that day, also brought their speech of gratitude in being part of the joyous occasion.
The task of evangelism and soul-winning in the whole world may be difficult, but the members of the Church of Christ in the Last Watch showed nothing but steadfast and vigorous commitment to the ministry which they had received from the authority of the Apostle: to win souls and edify saints.
