As per request of our brethren in Pagadian City, I visited them last March 14-15, 2014. It’s worthwhile to recall that I was there August 23, 2013 where 7 persons were baptized and 1 dedicated. The “seeds” of truth we shared to them bear fruit because this time 8 persons were converted and submitted to water baptism in the Saving Name of Yahshua and 7 children were dedicated, as they continued in the Faith.
Baptized were: Pahaliah Benida, Federico Ambag, Gemma Ambag, Ronie Cabungcal, Gemma Cabungcal, Brian Cabellon, Josephine Quijano, and Ian Mohametano. I have to mention that Ian Mohametano was the contact person you forwarded to me sometime last year who visited our website and requested for our reading materials. I sent him literature and mini-studies which he continuously studied and by Yahweh’s grace, was among those baptized. It’s indeed a great joy to see people enlightened and converted to the True Faith. Dedicated were: Cherry Ann Ambag, Christyl Jean Ambag, Rafael Ambag, Federico Ambag Jr. III, Abigail Cabellon, AGB Rian Cabellon, and Shekinah Quijano.
We fellowshipped at a rented cottage with swimming pool because the river where we baptized last August 2013 near the residence of Bro. Gelbert Cabungcal where they hold Sabbath services dried up due to drought. Before my trip to Pagadian, I encoded, edited, and compiled 26 copies of English-Visayan Songbooks. This is one among the important things needed in the assembly as evident during my previous visits to the different assemblies here. I gave 10 copies to YAIY Pagadian City, sent 5 copies to YAIY Salug, 5 copies to YAIY Tangway, 5 copies to YAIY Caluan, Sindangan and left 1 copy for my file. I also printed our English literature, mini-studies and the Visayan translations and distributed to them.
