March 4, 2018 was no ordinary Sunday for the brethren of Occidental Mindoro district churches. Each individual had spent a lot of effort in physical, mental, and spiritual preparations for Berea’s area fellowship in San Jose locale’s house of worship in Occidental Mindoro in response to the theme of their fellowship, “Love: The Key to Perfection (Colossians 3:14).”
After ReDEEM Department Media Coordinator, Pastor Samuel Ferriol, delivered words of instruction during Sunday School service earlier in the morning, hymns of praises and worship overflowed the chapel as Sister Pia Troncoso, together with the Praise and Worship team, led the congregation into heartfelt singing. Choirs from the local churches of Magsikap, Central, Sablayan, and San Jose offered songs of reverence and love to God that paved the way to open the hearts of the brethren to receive the Word.
Pastor Hilbert Cortes delivered the message of giving, while Pastor Samuel graced the event with the meditation of the Word of God. Everyone was a testimony on how God moved the spirits of the brethren to aspire perfection in their service to the Lord. Heavens and the people of God on earth rejoiced as for almost 2,000 people who attended, many had received salvation that day. It was a truly remarkable start of service in perfection.
