Entire Church Baptized in Philippines Village
by Rey P. Cabañero | Publishing Ministries Director, Southern Asia-Pacific Division
A miracle of grace happened recently in Santa Maria, Davao Occidental, in the Philippines.
In a phone interview, former Pentecostal church member Cynthia de la Cruz gave this testimony: Members of the congregation were given copies of the Missionary Book of the Year Hope for Today's Families. Then they received Voice of Prophecy Bible study lessons before being introduced to God's Word with Timeless Truths (a book on the 28 Fundamental Beliefs) from the Philippine Publishing House.
Through the care and efforts of Adventist lay members, the entire church congregation decided to be baptized. The church sign was changed from International One Way Outreach Pentecostal Church to Seventh-day Adventist Church.

God never stops working through His literature. To God be the glory.
