The anniversary celebration of Kalibo Locale was a spiritually refreshing experience for the brethren. It was a day of remembrance and commemoration of how the work of God progressed despite starting from an insignificant lowly province. Many hardships have come but the brethren still managed to endure with a faithful spirit and a thankful heart, fulfilling their anniversary’s theme inspired by Colossians 2:7, “Rooted in Faith, Abounding in Thanksgiving”
As Pastor Cynthia Perez welcomed everyone as she reminisced how the brethren made a promise to help the church in Kalibo three years ago with the hope that God will do greater things in the future. “…Today is just a tip of an iceberg of what God has in store for us”.
During offertory, Pastor Cynthia taught the admonished everyone that whenever God gives prosperity in life, one should upgrade his giving for the Lord than one’s personal spending. Pastor Dan Perez, head of Kalibo locale, taught the congregation on the importance of being rooted in the Apostle and his teachings, regardless if the situation favors us or not.
The day was emotionally uplifting and spiritually empowering as the Kalibo brethren pondered upon God’s faithfulness to the locale through the years. The event concluded with a stage presentation, “HASIK”, performed by the Masterpiece Productions, artists guild of Kalibo locale.
