MCGI in South America Celebrates 1st Year Anniversary

May 15, 2010

South Americans have not known the God in the Bible, not until 2009. For the priceless treasure they have found, members of the Church of God International in South America celebrate their first birthday with thanksgiving to God.

With heartfelt gratitude, the brethren sang “Ate Os Ceus”, their own version of the Church’s Filipino song Hanggang sa Langit (Far up to Heaven), before the worldwide Congregation during the regular thanksgiving held last Saturday.

The historical event in the early part of 2009 recalls the Church seeing the opportunity to introduce the Gospel in Latin America. Bro. Eli Soriano, MCGI Presiding Minister, conducted mass indoctrinations following a series of live Bible Expositions in different parts of the continent. At first baptism, 263 natives were converted forming the first locale in South America.

Vice-Presiding Minister Bro. Daniel Razon personally greeted the brethren a joyful celebration of thanksgiving to God during his discussion of last Saturday’s biblical topic. Before he ended his discussion, he gratefully announced that Bro. Resty Reyes, one of the Assistants to the Administration, was in India and has informed him that the Church’s missionary works in the second most populous country in the world has already started.

As prophesied in the book of Matthew, the Church now introduces the Word of God in many parts of the world. Through the phenomenal television program Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path), MCGI brought in the Good News to the homes of many people in the United States of America, Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa. In South America, TV Verdade airs the program 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
