The growth of the true Church is indeed undeniable. The United Kingdom District has proven that the working power of God in the end-time is very much alive in this side of the world. Brethren from different local churches in UK have gathered together in Cardiff, Wales last August 3-7, 2011 to hold the UK District Summer Camp. Carrying the theme of the worldwide Camp “Responding to the Global Evangelistic Challenge” taken from Matthew 9:35-38, the UK brethren have shown their fervent love and dedication to God through their vibrant participation in this annual event.
The brethren’s thirst for God’s word was quenched by the abundant words of God ministered by Bishop Art Ferriol, Bethel Area Coordinator and Pastor Lily Ferriol, Associate Pastor in Malagasang, Cavite Locale Church and Sis. Abby Ferriol. The brethren was immersed in prayer and in meditation of God’s words through the Daily Morning Devotion, Seminars and Worship Services. Young people and adults alike have shown their active cooperation in every activities set in the whole-week event. They have showcased their God-given talents through the Body Woship, Choir Competition, Tambourine Dance, Song Writing Competition and Talents’ Night.
The Summer Camp was concluded by the words of God ministered by Bishop Art Ferriol in a Worship Service that challenged the brethren to dedicate their lives for the cause worthy of all our sacrifice- the Gospel of Christ. After the service, Pastor Violy Concepcion, the UK and Europe Area Coordinator, has lead the campers to a fun-filled fellowshipping which has drawn everyone together to be a strong entity as the Body of Christ. All in all, the success of the UK Camp is eminent to every delegate who went home with the fire and power of the word of God, able and ready to testify the salvation each one has received by grace.
