Thirty five people were baptized during the culmination of the Family Life Seminar held at Perez, Sibagat, Agusan del Sur by Pastor Eugenio Cubelo Jr, Communication Director of Northeastern Mindanao Mission last February 10, 2018. “This is the result of the work of the Holy Spirit,” said Bro. Polot Dagium, one of the leaders of the church. The seminar was conducted by Bro. Charlie Ranes one of the Gospel Outreach worker together with Bro. Ronnie Makiling and it is sponsored by the Communication Department of the South Philippine Union Conference under the leadership of Pr. Heshbon Buscato.
The audience of the nightly crusade was rather small because of the distance, but during the day. Bro. Gonzalo Quillano, Bro. Ranes, and the elders of the church visited the homes of the people to share the love of Christ. They also visited backsliders and encourage them to renew their commitment to the Lord. Sacrifices amidst the crisis has brought happiness to the members of the Perez Adventist Church as they shared the good news of salvation.
The thirty five newly baptized are now being integrated into their small group for nurturing and will soon receive Bible Study Guide (Lagda) from Bro. Lonie Vicera.
Note: Perez Adventist Church is located at barangay Perez of the municipality of Sibagat, Agusan del Sur. It belongs to the Unit 2 Fellowship which consist of seven churches under Ampayon-Padiay District.
