“What is our testimony to our neighbors? What is our label with our colleagues and classmates? Do they know that we are Adventists?”
These are the words of Mr. Rhoen Catolico, Adventist Media manager of the Adventist Church in Davao region, as he spoke during the Divine Worship during the Governor Generoso Inter-Departmental Association (GOGEIDA). The event was held on December 4 to December 6 at Pundaguitan Gymnasium, Brgy. Pundaguitan, Governor Generoso, Davao Oriental.
Spearheaded by their district pastor, Pr. Lito M. Magsico and accompanied by the association president, Elder Monchito Variacion, the 13-member association showed the unwavering and untiring support to the church, in general.
The event is held every three months. This gathering aims to provide solid foundation of the faith and fellowship among the members, thereby, strengthening the association’s ideals and goals. With this, members were given a chance to witness and participate in the different activities. Highlights of the event were the biblical presentation from the different churches and sport activities.
Meanwhile, Pr. Magsico, also expressed his gratefulness to Brgy. Captain Jared Arquiza of Brgy. Pundaguitan. “Your overflowing support to the Seventh-day Adventist fellowship is indeed a great help!“ Pr. Magsico said of Arquiza.
The wonderful experiences empowered them to be consistent in helping and supporting the programs of the association. [Vecente Macalua]
