SPUC’s Online ‘40 Days Journey With God’ Results in 20,442 Baptism
South Philippine Union Conference concludes its online revival and evangelism Saturday, November 15, with a partial baptismal report totaling 20, 442 precious souls. This online initiative was called ‘40 Days Journey With God’ and was initiated by the church leadership with the objective to invite people to have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and to inspire faith and confidence in God’s leading despite the pandemic and the raging storms that hit the country.
The ‘40 Days Journey With God’ is a treat of uplifting music and powerful messages from the Scripture. Presidents of Conferences and Missions each served as speakers for seven days for eight weeks with Pastor Roger Caderma, SPUC president, speaking in the last week of the program. The event started in October 6 and culminated on November 15, 2020. The final week alone yielded a baptism of 10,066 but the whole forty days activity garnered a baptism of more than twenty thousand souls, bringing in a total baptism of close to sixty thousand precious souls since January.
This live online initiative was aired through multiple media platforms using Hope Channel’s cable tv and Facebook page and cross posted in YouTube channel. “We praise God for these precious souls who accepted Jesus as their personal Savior. The curse of this pandemic was turned into a blessing as more people turned to listen to our program online,” Pastor Roger Caderma, SPUC President said.
