Truly that the work of the Lord in His true Church is continuous and abounding. One such occasion was the recently concluded Church Anniversary of Belgium Locale. 115 brethren along with 13 visitors gathered in the Thon Hotel Bristol on the 12th of May, 2019 to honour the blessings God has bestowed on them. This was reiterated by the locale Pastor, Ptr Eva Atiwan as she welcomed and acknowledged all the special guests, visitors and brethren in this occasion. Sis Ezra Joan Jarencio, an MBS student and associate worker in Germany Locale, commenced the worship service as the master of ceremony with the Belgium Praise and Worship singers. The opening prayer was lifted to God by Sis Anna Delos Trino the local Ptr of Netherlands. The partakers of this worship service also included Bro Raymond Dancel for announcement and Bro Ronald Ozaeta, an MBS student ministered the reading of the Scriptures. Songs of praises were offered to God by local churches of Paris, Amsterdam, Germany and Belgium and Bro Luis Concepcion. The message of offertory was faithfully ministered by the worker of Paris Local, Sis Teresa Collado, who encouraged the brethren to remain steadfast and generous in supporting the mission. The special guest of honour for this year’s anniversary who also ministered the Word of God powerfully was Ptr Jessette Noche, the Sub-coordinator of Blue Area and the Head minister of Nice Locale. The message of the Words of God brought everyone to realise that we need to continue serving the Lord till Jesus comes, which is imminently. The altar call had touched the hearts of the visitors and 9 souls were added to His Church that day.Praise the Lord! The day ended with the Recognition of faithful brethren who made an impact on the growth of the locale. Everyone is looking forward again for the many blessings and doors of opportunity for the mission in this part of the world, where the true church is found, the PMCC4th Watch! Maranatha!!
