Greetings Bethel Family,
Glory be to our most high God for His unending grace and mercy shown on us. Starting 1st Saturday and 2nd Saturday of June, we gave food pack to the children of the feeding program here in our worship center. We cooked rice and fried chicken and given them a juice. They brought their food pack and ate their foods to their home. Despite of the mask that had covered their faces, their beautiful smile were still very visible. They are very happy that they were able to eat their favorite food that is fried chicken and rice and juice. The kids extend their heartfelt thanks to Pastor Mike Gordon and seniors for the food packs and your support for the feeding program. I will send you the pictures of the food pack distribution to the children.
Our city is now currently under Modified General Community Quarantine where church gatherings are now allowed staring last 1st Sunday of June, with the strict observance of sanitation and social distancing. We are glad to fellowship together back again with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Our Bible studies and outreach visitation is now going on. We are blessed to reach out new souls and encourage one another through the word of God. Prayer, praising and worshipping God in the midst of this situation we are still facing is our greatest weapon against. The word of God continuously reminds us through Apostle Paul on 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
Our prayers of blessings and protection may be upon to you and your family, to Pastor Mike Gordon and his family, Pastors, seniors, elders and the whole congregation of Bethel Christian Assembly. God bless you all.
In Christ’s Love & Service,
Pastor Ricardo and Gloria
