June 4, 2018 • in News & Events
Thirty-seven theology students from Mountain View College (MVC) recently concluded a week-long evangelistic campaign held and culminated at the Tagum City Trade & Cultural Center Pavillion, Tagum City from May 21 up to May 26, 2018.
These students from MVC, in Valencia City, Bukidnon, initiated the event as part of their internship program. The evangelistic campaign called, “Restoration of Honor” attracted the interests of the people because of its unique and satisfying presentation about God’s plan of redemption.
Charlie Glenn Agripo, the 25-year-old president of the group, narrated how happy they were in doing this task. “We do not think that this work is an obligation but a delight. We are happy because of the response of our Bible students,” he said. “With the blessings of the Lord and His mercy, we could help restore the honor of humanity that was lost.”
The nightly presentations were supported and delivered by invited guest speaker, Pastor Jerry C. Patalinghug, ministerial secretary of South Philippine Union Conference, located in Cagayan de Oro City. More than 200 participants attended the nightly meetings. The group credited the success of the meetings to the members of the church for being so active in adapting the “Total Member Involvement,” a program which primary purpose was to involve everyone in bringing and sharing the message of Jesus to the people.
“Since the first day, I saw people coming to the venue. It showed that they are really interested,” Pastor Patalinghug said in an interview. He was happy to see the church members in Tagum City and the nearby districts for the support and also to the group from MVC throughout the event. “We must work together in preparing people for His soon return. God needs you and me for His great commission,” Patalinghug added.
Dr. Gladden Flores, president of the Mountain View College was present during the culmination of the event and was overwhelmed by the response of the Bible students. He expressed profound gratitude to Davao Mission leaders and members of the church for their support to this program.
