Soon after Edwin E. Vicente was baptized into Christ, the Covid-19 pandemic engulfed the Philippines, and Edwin lost his job. With no source of income, he sold most of his earthly possessions to pay for food and lodging. Instead of complaining, he gathered a group of children in his community and taught them what he had learned from WEI.
Providentially, God stirred the hearts of a few WEI teachers and friends, and they provided enough funding for Edwin to open a WEI Learning Center in San Fernando City on Luzon Island. Since then, God has worked through Edwin to lead numerous young people and adults to Christ and to establish a congregation at the Learning Center.
At this point in time, financial support for Edwin and the Learning Center has dropped off, and Edwin will soon be forced to return to his old job while working at the Learning Center in the evenings and on weekends.
Edwin says, “Regarding my commitment to WEI, I am working on the lessons because there are lots of adults who are interested in listening to the word of God after their working hours.”
After meeting with such a group last week, Edwin wrote, “In a heartwarming gathering, I had the privilege of meeting a group of public school cleaners and canteen helpers who were yearning to reconnect with their faith. These dedicated individuals explained that they were not able to attend church services due to their busy schedules, and they expressed their gratitude to me for stepping up to preach for them.”
“The fellowship was a moving experience for all involved. I expressed my feelings of being blessed and overjoyed that these individuals had opened their hearts to Christ.”
“This fellowship marks the beginning of a spiritual journey that will absolutely impact the lives and spiritual growth of these remarkable people.”
Have you considered including WEI in your will?
By naming WEI in your estate, you will accomplish two important things:
1. You will lay up treasures in heaven; and,
2. You will help others get to heaven, too.
W.E.I. THANKS ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR
