April 3, 2022 was an auspicious day in the history of the new church in San Fernando City, Luzon Island. The events of the day were the culmination of teaching done by Edwin E. Vicente at the WEI Learning Center.
In early February, Edwin and his helpers graduated
WEI class #2, and immediately inaugurated class # 3. Edwin calls these graduation ceremonies “moving on” celebrations. The plan is to move students on from one class to another until they have completed the entire WEI curriculum.
During the past year, Brothers Erben L. Gonzales and Clemente G. Lazaga have been driving up from Calasiao to San Fernando one Sunday afternoon a month to help Edwin establish a church at the WEI Learning Center.
On April 3rd, Erben and Clemente did double duty. They preached, taught, prayed, and led the singing.
Erben and Clemente also baptized seven people that Edwin had taught, including Edwin’s older daughter, Edle Joy [EJ], her husband Aldrin B. Lagahit, and five WEI students.
At the time of this writing, Edwin was scheduled to preach his first gospel sermon on April 10th. Going forward, he will be leading worship at the new church three Sundays a month.
Editor’s note: Edwin’s printer is worn out, and he desperately needs a new one for printing class materials. He also needs a working fund in order to keep up with the rapid growth of the church–and the WEI Learning Center where children, young people, and adults study the Bible six or seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year.
If an American congregation or mission-minded individual would like to have fellowship with Edwin in this productive soul-winning mission in the Philippines, please contact me, Dick Ady, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-621-2334.
W.E.I. THANKS ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!
WEI would not be able to reach people in all nations with the word of God without your support, contributions, and donations.
