Annual Thanksgiving Service 2015
Singapore Local thank the Lord for His abundant grace in this years Annual Thanksgiving named “Tanging Handog Pasasalamat” which was held last February 15, 2015. Their theme which was inspired from the book of 1 Chronicles 16:34, “Thanks be to God for His Love Endureth Forever” truly expresses the great joy that abounds from the faces of every minister and brethren despite the past year challenges, it is the unfathomable love of God that still prevails.
It was indeed a great blessing as the event was graced by the Area Coordinators of the local churches from the EURO- ASIALIANZ REGION (consisting of the Areas of Philippi , Achaia, Judea, Thyatira , Pamphylia, Damascus, and Nazareth) who were first time in Singapore for their first ever summit meeting . To mention Pastor Maya Cruz (Area Coordinator of Japan) and Pastor Nimfa Barrera (Auxiliary Coordinator of Japan), Pastor Susan Saulog (Area Coordinator of Hongkong, Macau, and China), Pastor Irene Huang (Area Coordinator of Taiwan), Pastor Rosita Abanto (Area Coordinator of Korea). Other foreign ministers also partake in the event, Pastor Khaterine Ferriol- Saulog (Head of the EDCOM from Marikina Local) , Bro. Anthony and Sis Iyvette Ballesteros (Head Ministers of Vietnam Local).
The service was truly inspirational from the morning, as a presentation of the last International Missionary Day was shown.
Encouraging words of God in the offertory message was ministered by Pastor Maya Cruz. The Head Pastor of Singapore, Sister Donna Robles speaks with great gladness as she welcomes the guests and introduced the keynote speaker.
Everyone was so blessed and empowered as we listened to the words of God which was ministered by the Regional Overseer of EURO-ASIALIANZ Region and Area Coordinator of Nazareth Area, Evangelist Leticia Ferriol.
The message has moved and opened the hearts of many visitors to accept the Lord. It also calls for every member of the Singapore Local to a much higher dedication in Gods service.
She has quoted,
” The reason why we should give thanks to God is because of His Love that endureth forever. The love of God is sacrificial. It is the answer to the primary need of man which is life. The love of God has the power to give life, eternal life, thru His only son Jesus Christ whom he gave for us…” …. By Evangelist Leticia Ferriol
A total of 173 attended the event and 10 souls were saved as they received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and were baptized.
