Our church (Iglesia Ni Cristo) held a Grand Evangelical Mission last Tuesday, February 28 at the Quirino Grand Stand. I'm proud I was able to join and take part as one of the receptionists in the event. I was awake for more than 36 hours that day yet I was able to survive the heat and exhaustion. To God be the glory! :)
The place was packed with brethren coming from different provinces here in the National Capital Region. I'm not sure about the number of people who attended but this is how the Quirino Grand Stand looked during the event:
I forgot about bringing my digital camera again. I was not able to take pictures of myself taking part in the event. As one of the receptionists, we were asked to wear slacks and a white polo shirt. Thank God, they did not ask us to wear a skirt although some girls did.
This kind of GEM did not only happen in the Quirino Grand Stand that day. All the INC districts all over the Philippines participated and held the GEM in cities in the provinces. It was at the same televised by our network, GEM TV live.
It was indeed a successful event. It made me all the more proud of being a member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo. :)
