A special milestone of church anniversary has been reached by the Netherlands Locale as the 10th year of establishment was celebrated on the 26th of May, held at the R.K. Parochie Emmaus in Amsterdam. The worker of God in-charge of the mission in this country, Sis Anna Marie Delos Trino acknowledged this milestone as a testament of the goodness of God, with the support of the Apostle Arsenio Ferriol in prayers along with the constant guidance of the District Coordinator, Presbyter Violy Concepcion. A hundred number of brethren and visitors had converged at the said venue in the spirit of worship with Sis Lorilyn Casao leading the Netherlands Praise and Worship team. Honouring God in prayer was Ptr Eva Atiwan, the local pastor of Belgium locale. The announcements were given by Sis Cristalyn Joy Ramos whilst the Scripture Reading was administered by Bro Rudy Delos Trino. Songs of praises were offered to God by the local churches of Germany , Belgium, Paris and of course the Netherland. The words of God for the offertory message were powerfully delivered by Ptr Myrna Librado, the head pastor of Norway Local teaching everyone to be generous in their love for the mission and that supporting this is one of the task of a real fourth watcher. This anniversary was graced by Ptr Jessette Noche, the sub-coordinator of Blue Area and head minister of Nice Locale. As the guest speaker she admonished everyone to remain steadfast and immovable for the hope of out faith is coming very soon. Maranatha! After the worship service, some refreshments were served courtesy of the host local whilst they are preparing for a gospel concert. An array of talents were witnessed by everyone present and many left with the joy and resolve to come back and partake once more of this wonderful show of spiritual strength and unity. God is truly moving mightily in His true Church and this anniversary has been a testament to it! To God be the glory!
