setting was a cold January 27-28 in the little of town of Tagaytay
on the southern part of Cavite. It happened to be on a Thursday
and Friday when the workers held the first WORLD BIBLE SCHOOL campaign.
It was hard for the team to hold this kind of activity, because
we were running out of budget, but we believed that God will take
care of everything.
This two-day activity had been planed for almost one month; the
overall chairman for this is Bro. Ems. Dadz and Shon prepared materials
for the said activity. Rio and Jeff prepared the place where the
workers stayed for almost 2days.
the first day, we have an attendance of 38 from different congregations,
from Marikina, Dasmarinas, Cabanatuan, Cubao, Imus and Indang. It
was very exciting. Almost all workers wore WBS shirts, took fliers
and were ready to go for on site enrolment. Everybody was so tired.
The campaign continued in the City Hospital. We saw the face of
each patient - the happiness that nobody could explain. We sang
spiritual and encouraging songs for the patients and even prayed
for them. In addition, most of the patients were enrolled in WBS.
The over all enrollees for the first day activity is 145 and 7 of
them was scheduled for Bible Study. Everybody was so excited to
do work for the second day. One of the elders of Legacy church of
Christ- Bro. JC Bailey- helped us during our second day activity.
There were 43 workers that day and we decided to divide the group
so that some went to school and some did knock in houses for direct
enrollment and hand over tracks. Again, after the campaign we gathered
at one place for a sharing time. Many related their experiences
about the said campaign. We have a total of 186 enrollees for that
day alone. Thanks God the campaign was so successful for the church
planting. This, I believe is one of the best way of getting prospect
for Bible Studies.
