This past month was another of the exciting times of our ministry. It was the organization of the Graceland Bible Baptist Church of Floridablanca, Pampanga. This ministry had been started and developed by Efren Banal. A man who is not so young. He is pictured below with his pastor, Orlan Maniego and also signing the charter. After spending much of his life working in the refrigeration repair, he gave his life to the Lord and attended Bible School. After completion, Bro. Banal wanted to go to Taiwan as a missionary but because our degree wasn’t accepted by their government, he felt directed to starting a new mission.
Scripture Bible Baptist Church of Dinalupihan, Bataan, pastored by Orlan Maniego, was the mother church of this young work. Pastor Maniego, Dr. Ed Boniog and I were the speakers during the organization service. We enjoy the gratification that comes from the continued growth of the ministry that God has given us.
It was a gratifying sight to watch the group as they signed the charter of commitment of this new church.
