The year 2023 has been a wonderful year for the ministry which continues to grow despite many challenges. We exceeded some goals and did not achieve others, but we learned some valuable lessons along the way. Please pray that CCIP will grow stronger as we move forward in the coming year.
Pastor Petrush held a Teacher Training Workshop (TTW) in Dipolog City, and Pastors Eloi and Manny held another one in Santa Rosa City. One of the participants in Santa Rosa is going back to Hong Kong to start a class there. He is also planning to start a class in Cavite.
Pastor Petrush also conducted a class in Villarico, Pinan, Zamboanga del Norte. He said, "I also applied what I learned in the CCI Global Conference to select and train CCI students who are able to teach."
I visited Pastor Syjuco’s class in Himamaylan City in Western Visayas in December. The students told me that because of the CCI training, they learned how to interpret Scriptures correctly and preach the Word of God with purpose and direction. While there, I was able to spend a little time with the family of Pastor Anthony Syjuco.
