This year as Christ Stewards Fellowship is about to celebrate its 11th anniversary, we're blessed to meet partners in Christ to bless our church members, co-laborers in Christ and also the community surrounding us.
It is our opportunity to serve and bless others as ministers of Christ. Everyone has the capability to help and reach people to build them up and start their lives again. Our capacity to help is not measured on the amount of your pocket but the greatness of your heart in reaching people who are need in any way you can.
Last February 1, our church accommodated the Elder's of the City Meeting. We had more than 50 guests who are pastors and workers of the churches here in Batangas City. It was our privilege to be the host of this meeting and sponsor snacks and lunch as the meeting happens.
We know friend churches in Mindoro who are more than needy than us so in our own little way we try to offer our helping hands as a brother and sister in Christ. Pastor Celso joined Bro, Paul and Sis. Rose Tuma in Puerto Galera to be of help in sharing the love of God there. (February 4, 2016)
We heard a news about Ptr. Jun Falla how he needed help. His wife was sick and they were greatly affected by the thyphoon that caused destruction in the church building. After that typhoon, while staying in an evacuation center all the left possessions in their house was stolen then was burned down by the thief to cover up the crime. Who could not be sad in hearing such news? Our church and even our members were not rich people. But because our desire is to give help, God blessed us in different ways to channel it in Bagong Buhay Christian Church.
The team who went to Naujan didn't only bless Ptr, Jun's church but were also able to give some relief goods to Brgy. Bacungan, a neighboring barangay in Ptr. Jun's area. Right then the place was opened for Bible Studies.
February 10, 2016, we visited Ptr. Cecillio Miranda. He is the pastor of Door Faith in Laurel, Batangas. We gave him library resources courtesy of CRI.
Our visit was very timely not knowing Pastor. Miranda is celebrating his birthday on that day. We just delivered his present from the Lord.
February 21, was a special youth event to develop camaraderie and strong bonds of friendship.
The end of the fellowship is a dinner in Boodle fight style. Every tummy was filled and the place was filled with laugh, encouragement and support.
Medical and Dental Mission was held February 23 and 25, 2016. This was made possible by partnering with Christian Life Foundation, Barangay Officials of Barangay 21, Sis Leona (Arms of Love Foundation). More than 100 people received medical services and what's important is we were able to share the Gospel to this people.
Truly every event is physically tiring but in doing this; there's an unexplainable joy in serving seeing the smiles of every people and helping them to lighten up their burdens. It is creating an impact of spiritual change in their lives.
February 28, 2016 - Worship Service and Christ Stewards Fellowship Anniversary Celebration.
It is through Him that we were able to continue and serve and through His grace we will continue serve; make Christ disciples; share his words; and to remain faithful in Fellowshiping with God's people.
