In the last issue of this newsletter, we reported that Edwin E. Vicente’s personal support from American Christians has gradually declined as our nation’s economy has deteriorated. Consequently, Edwin was forced to seek employment to supplement his income.
At 60 years of age, Edwin was not able to find a job in San Fernando City, so he encouraged his converts to worship with the San Fernando Church of Christ where Dr. John Quiniones is the highly qualified minister. Then he said goodbye to his students and boarded a bus to Tuguegarao City, Cagayan, his former home town. Amazingly, Edwin was able to take the WEI chairs, speaker’s stand, teaching materials, air conditioner, and personal belongings on the bus with him.
At Tuguegarao City, Edwin was allowed to use the unused library/storage room in a local museum as a WEI Learning Center free of charge, He is now in the process of registering the learning center with local authorities. Let’s pray that he will soon have enough baptized blievers to use this room for worship.
