“It’s nice to live. But if you cannot believe, you will not see life.” – Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol And the select group of youth who believed the Word saw life as an offering to God.
Two years ago, they responded to the calling of the gospel and yesterday, March 21, 2018, they sealed their dedication in the ministry as Associate in Theology (AIT) in the Maranatha Bible School during the AIT 6th Commencement Exercises held at Marikina Locale.
The 28 AIT graduates belonging to the Apostolic Stewards of Christ in the End-time Batch (ASCET) marched through the aisle with their proud parents bearing the unspeakable joy from the hearts. After the entry of partakers, MBS Faculty, Committee, the General OIC, Evangelist Leticia Ferriol and the Dean of the MBS, the Goodman of the House, Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol, Sister Regine Bermudez, together with the Praise and Worship team, led the congregation into expressing outpours of happiness and admiration unto the Lord through songs of praises.
Sister Mary Grace Rabanera delivered the message of giving during Offertory.
Afterwards, Evangelist Leticia presented the three class speakers of the batch. These are the AIT students who have shown exemplary performance during their stay in the MBS. Namely these are:
1st Speaker – Brother King Nikko Manlincon (Caloocan)
2nd Speaker – Brother Jose Woodrow Ong (Zamboanga)
3rd Speaker – Brother Fidel Yerro (Pangasinan)
Apostle Arsenio gave few words of revelation about the calling of being the Goodman of the House and how the ministry is integral to life. After the diplomas have been awarded by the bishops to the graduates, the batch sang another song of praise of gratitude and dedication to the Lord.
The event concluded as the graduates knelt down on the stage to pray. Tears filled the place as each of them surrendered to the presence of God embracing the finish of the two-year course with victory from the Holy Spirit, while each graduate uttered a prayer of affirmation to the calling of Christ.
