Vienna, the prestigious capital of Austria not only known and regarded as the City of Music because of its musical legacy, but also most significantly a city where the PMCC 4th Watch Vienna locale had successfully celebrated their 1st church anniversary!
Once a part of the diaspora vision, a young watcher, Sis April Tan, heeded for the call of God and led the pioneering church in this remarkable city. Owing to the wonderful grace of God, along with the unity for the ministry of the Goodman of the house,and with the support of the Philippi District Coordinator, Ptr Violy Concepcion and the Orange Area-Sub-Coordinator, Ptr.Mylene Estopa, this has now been established as a growing church, and on the 10th of July, the first anniversary came into fruition!
This historic church event was preceded by two nights of spiritual empowerment as the new brethren entrusted all their trust to our Lord for the success of this momentous and spiritual event!
As the day dawned, 64 attendees of which 42 were visitors packed the venue, Louisse Braille Saal. Graced by no other than the District Coordinator, Ptr Violy Concepcion as the honoured guest speaker and some brethren from Madrid and Germany locale also came to witness. The celebrations began with praise and worship singing led by Sis. Abegiel Dinglasan. As Ptr Violy Concepcion spoke the messages of the Lord, the visitors humbly came and accepted the call to receive the free gift of salvation! Praise the Lord!
Luncheon soon followed with photo opportunities and a mini gospel concert entertained the crowd with dances by the Viennese brethren and music by the artistes from Madrid locale.
Sis April in her closing comments reiterated her thanks to God for the success of this anointed first anniversary. Of course this would not be possible had not for the united prayers, fasting, fellowship and cooperation of each and every single brethren of the Vienna Locale! To God be the Glory!
Wenn wir Gott vertrauen, gibt es Sieg!
