The program partakers, council members and bishops of the Church, together with Evangelist Leticia Ferriol and the Goodman of the House, Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol, paraded among the aisle of yearning delegates as the Adult Camp 2018 officially opened. A lively praise and worship led by Sister Joy Ferriol-Guerrero set the tone for the afternoon service.
During offertory, Pastor Gener de Luna instructed the congregation that the faithful and wise leadership observed in the Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ (4th Watch) is incomparable as the Church is very loyal in administering the blessings to further the development and growth of the Church.
In Bishop Arturo Ferriol’s introduction to the speaker, he discussed the importance of having the sent ones bring the Word of God, hence giving way to the speaker of the day’s event which was Apostle Arsenio.
During the meditation of God’s Word, the Apostle answered the question: why do we have to endure sufferings? He explained that Christianity began with suffering as Christ became the very epitome of suffering. He cited Romans 6:1-4 which paints a picture of Christian life. The Apostle declared with full conviction that brethren will overcome suffering because there is new life in Christ.
The service concluded with the Apostle’s challenge to the brethren of having Christlike obedience; obedience which is couple with suffering and humility.
