South Cotabato home of many indigenous people and New Apostolics

On Friday, 13th of July 2018

Ap. Nuyad started and expanded the foundation of our Church, Bh. Esser from Canada supported it for years and today’s Ap. Alfredo Pascual builds on it. Very special are always visits to our T’Boli Brethren in Lake Sebu, were our church is well established.

The District Apostle came for the last time with his active mandate of the Ministry. DAH Edy Isnugroho and Bh. Samuel Tansahtikno joined him together with Bh. Muda who also soon will retire. It was a feast of joy. Divine Service for Ministers and wives, a youth service both in Lake Sebu and a Sub District Service in our Tupi Church was the program from 6th to 8th July.

Everywhere the group was welcomed with great joy and the T’boli Youth presented various numbers of their native dances, special melodies. At the end there was a young couple who asked for the engagement blessing.

With the aid of NAK-humanitas a school was build for the T’iboli people in very remote area of neighbouring Sarangani. The Barangay Captain Hon. Juanito A. Sampan travelled the long distance to Lake Sebu to bring a special Thank you on behalf of his constituency.
A young Sister joined in to relay here experiences with the NACSEARelief scholarship program.

The Divine Service for ministers was based on Luke 24:27 and the DA elaborated on God’s comfort through the Bible, the sermons and Holy Communion.

The youth was encouraged with an elaboration from Galatian 2:20

I have my life and live it but Christ lives in me

In the Tupi Church the congregation was served with Matthew 5:44-45.

As sinners we are enemies of God but He loves us unconditionally. Jesus asks us to follow His example and to love also our enemies
