Musical commemorates FYM’s legacy
QUEZON CITY — In commemoration of the 132nd birth anniversary of Brother Felix Manalo, the musical program “Tunay na Kamanggagawa ng Diyos” was held on May 8, 2018 at the Iglesia Ni Cristo Tabernacle in Quezon City, Philippines.
The program, which started at 4:00 PM, was attended by ministers, ministerial workers, ministerial students, and the school’s faculty and staff.
Brother Angelo Eraño V. Manalo, Coordinator of the Christian Family Organizations (CFO), and his wife and children, graced the event.
Brother Benefrido C. Santiago, President of the Iglesia Ni Cristo School For Ministers (INCSFM), read the message of the Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo.
In between performances by SFM students and instructors, a brief history of the Messenger and his efforts in formalizing the education of the ministers in the Church was narrated.
Attendees were reminded of “Ang Klase” (The Class, under the direct supervision of Brother Manalo) of male brethren who volunteered to help in spreading the gospel and in caring for the brethren. Over time, “Ang Klase” developed into the Iglesia Ni Cristo School For Ministers.
The performers rendered the songs “Ang Sugo ng Diyos sa Mga Huling Araw,” “Tatlong Araw, Tatlong Gabi,” “Hindi Natakot Ang Sugo,” “Isulong ang Ikapagtatagumpay ng mga Gawain sa Iglesia,” “Dapat Maging Gising At Laging Listo,” “Kakampi Natin ang Diyos, Siya ang Mandirigmang Makapangyarihan,” “Salamat Po, Ama,” “Kumpletuhin Ang Takbuhin Na Bigay Ng Diyos Sa Atin,” and “Ang Banal Na Tungkulin Ay Biyaya.”
For the finale, senior ministers joined the performers in delivering a speech chorale. It was followed by an all cast song entitled, “Pangako Po, Ama,” and for the encore, “Kamanggagawa ng Diyos” was sung.
Brother Rene De Leon, a faculty member, said, “The ministerial students performed really well. We, ministers, as well as the ministerial students and volunteer workers who were in attendance, are so grateful to Brother Eduardo V. Manalo for approving these activities.”
