On January 29, 2022, through a Pasugo: God’s Message distribution activity organized by the brethren from the Local Congregation of Guatemala City, God’s words were brought to the people of Puerto Barrios, a community in the province of Izabal, Guatemala. Through the activity, the brethren introduced the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) and teachings of God it upholds as part of their intensive efforts to share the words that will lead man to salvation.
Puerto Barrios is a bustling coastal city, around 300 kilometers northeast of the capital. Despite the considerable distance, brethren from Guatemala City, led by the district edification overseer, Brother Rogelio Valdez, travelled there with the noble intent of sharing God’s words and further expanding the work of salvation in this part of Central America.
Charito Peña, a prospective baptismal candidate who hails from Puerto Barrios, took part in the activity. According to her, she is glad that she had a chance to “visit some of my friends in the town and reconnect with them by giving out Pasugo magazines.”
The brethren introduced the Church Of Christ to the people they met in the streets and various establishments by handing out copies of the Pasugo: God’s Message magazine. Throughout the activity, they ensured that safety protocols were carefully observed.
On behalf of the brethren, Brother Valdez expressed his gratitude to God for giving them the opportunity to spread His words in this part of the country. “We conducted devotional prayers to ask help from God and give us success in this activity. Through His help, the brethren showed active response in sharing our faith,” he said. Brother Valdez further announced that there will be upcoming Pasugo drive activities in other parts of the country such as the San Marcos Province and Petén Region.
The Guatemala City Congregation is one of the two local congregations of the Church Of Christ in the country and among the 34 congregations under the supervision of the Ecclesiastical District of Latin America. — With reports from INC News Section
