MCGI’s Brazil-Hosted 3-Day International Thanksgiving Set on April 6-8

In this file photo, Bro. Eli Soriano, Over-all Servant of MCGI, smiles at the audience as he delivers the topic during last year’s Special Thanksgiving of God’s People held in Brazil.

For a fruitful quarter filled with successful activities, public service events and new wisdom revealed, the Members Church of God International (MCGI) will once again offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving. Brazil serves as the host country, for the fourth time, of the First Quarter Special Thanksgiving of God’s People, a three-day event from April 6 to 8 this year.

The first quarter of 2018 saw many opportunities for the congregation to do good through numerous Church events and occasions that were successfully held including various milestones through God’s help and mercy.

Let Your Light Shine: 2018’s Public Service Milestones

In celebration of the National Bible Month, the Bible Readers (BREAD) Society International, in cooperation with KAPI International and Philippine Bible Society (PBS), donated reading racks, Bibles, Bro. Eli’s ‘The Blog” magazines, as well as wall clocks, to various public institutions. Featured above were the library staff of the National Library of the Philippines and BREAD Society-NCR officers posing for a photo after the donation.

Starting off the year with January’s National Bible Month Celebration, MCGI through the youth members of the Church, BREAD Society, KAPI and the Philippine Bible Society (PBS) donated more than 20 Reading Racks and 400 Bibles to public institutions and schools across Metro Manila.

In addition, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) recognized MCGI during the agency’s “Pagkilala sa Natatanging Kontribusyon sa Bayan” (PaNata Ko sa Bayan) Awards held last March 8.

MCGI was the recipient of the “Salamat Po: Local Development Partner” award for the organization’s unwavering commitment in providing volunteers during the DSWD’s sessions of repacking relief goods held throughout the month of February.

The first quarter of 2018 also saw the heightened propagation efforts of the congregation, primarily led by Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, the Overall Servants of MCGI.

Regular and frequent Bible Expositions in the Philippines and abroad paved way for more than 5,000 souls to be baptized this past quarter. With God’s help and mercy, new locales were established across the Philippines, as well as in Latin America.

Crossing Borders to Seek the Lord’s Favor

Since the historic International Thanksgiving held and hosted in Brazil last 2014, this year’s special thanksgiving will be the 4th undertaking of the yearly Brazil celebration.

As early as December last year, some brethren across the world already started their travel preparation and plans, to the Lord’s favor even through crossing borders and frontiers.

“We had a yearning to see and witness God’s work in Brazil, [that is why] we urged ourselves to come,” said 56-year-old Bro. Bong Navarette. “We are very much excited to meet the brethren there, to see Bro. Eli once more, and of course to hear new wisdom to be unfolded.”

Coming from the province of Laguna, Bro. Bong and his wife, Sis. Hope Navarette are just two of the more than 260 delegates from the Philippines who will be traveling to Brazil to congregate with the rest of the brethren-delegates from various parts of the globe.

“It is our first time traveling and we can’t contain our excitement!” exclaimed Sis. Hope, adding, “We don’t think about the difficulties of the travel because we know that we are going [to Brazil] to seek God’s favor. Everything will be worth it.”.

Meanwhile, Bro. Marlon Esteva from Rizal has been making the Brazil pilgrimage since its inception last 2014.

“I feel grateful for countless blessings and for every good opportunity to do good with God’s help,” remarked Bro. Marlon. “That [is what] joyfully drives me to travel [yearly], to offer thanksgiving and seek the Lord of hosts as He promised that He will go there also.”

Aside from the main event emanating from Brazil, the three-day occasion will also be broadcast to 1,360 satellite remote points across the globe.

New Wisdom Unravels on MCGI’s Lord’s Supper This March

New wisdom about the Lord’s Supper will be revealed on March 29, as Members Church of God International (MCGI) prepares to celebrate the occasion on the same day, God willing. Bro. Eli Soriano, Overall Servant to MCGI, will preside its discussion.

This year, the celebration falls on the 29th of March at sundown, to conform to the timing that the Lord Jesus Christ sat down for the Passover one day ahead, since a new day in Israel begins as the sun sets.

The sunset of March 29 is the 13th of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, a day before the Feast of the Passover is celebrated, which is on the 15th of Nisan.

The Lord’s Supper will be marked with the offering of songs and prayers, then climaxes to Bro. Eli’s discussion of a topic for this year’s memorial.

MCGI started celebrating the Lord’s Supper on April 16, 2003.

The Essence of Remembering the Sacrifices of Christ

In the past observance of the Lord’s Supper, Bro. Eli discussed the biblical importance of remembering the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago.

For the past 15 years, the international televangelist had made it clear that the Lord’s Supper is one of the many misunderstood and misinterpreted narratives in the Bible, brought about by the lack of understanding in many preachers.

One of the things that Bro. Eli talked about in previous celebrations of the Lord’s Supper is that the Lord Jesus Christ celebrated it with his Apostles one day ahead of the Feast of the Passover, a holy commemoration in Israel.

The Significance of the Timing of the Commemoration

The preacher stated that the earlier timing of the Lord’s Supper is significant because on the day that the Israelites were killing the Passover lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ was suffering at the hands of Roman soldiers when he was turned over by the Sanhedrin after a quick trial.

This had fulfilled the prophecy about him in Isaiah 53:7: “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”

Meanwhile, the Feast of the Passover recounts God’s salvation of His people from four centuries of bondage in ancient Egypt. The book of Exodus tells that after the Israelites suffered oppression, slavery and hard labor at the hands of the Egyptians, they were finally freed when a host of catastrophic plagues punished their masters.

The river, other bodies of water, even the vessels, ran with blood (Exodus 7:17-21); the land was infested with frogs (Exodus 8:2-6), man and beast suffered from lice (Exodus 8:16-17) and boils (Exodus 9:8-10); flies (Exodus 8:21-24) and locusts (Exodus 10:4-15) swarmed the region; an epidemic killed all cattle (Exodus 9:3-7); hail mingled with fire rained on and smote the land (Exodus 9:18-25); and Egypt was plunged in darkness (Exodus 10:21-23).

The last plague recorded in Exodus 12:12,29 forced the king of Egypt to free the Hebrew slaves led by Moses. The death of all Egyptian firstborns, both man and cattle, resulted in a great cry throughout Egypt (Exodus 12:30). Even the pharaoh’s firstborn son died.

On the night of their escape, the Israelites ate a meal of an unblemished lamb roasted in fire, unleavened bread, and some bitter herbs. The blood of the slain lamb was brushed upon the side and upper door posts of their houses, which was the sign for the last plague, the plague of death, to “pass over” theirs and spare their firstborns. This is how the Feast of the Passover got its name.

In many prophecies in the Old Testament and several references in the New Testament, Christ is the Lamb of God. In Jewish religious custom since Abraham, an unblemished lamb is offered for the atonement of sins. This is why the Lord Jesus Christ ate supper a day before the Feast of the Passover so that his suffering and death would coincide with the killing of the paschal lambs throughout Israel.

Bro. Eli had hinted before that the killing of the Passover lambs is a symbolic act that represents the true story and real message behind it, which is the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, who according to John the Baptist in John 1:29 is “the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

Other topics discussed in the previous years encompassed the spiritual meaning of the objects associated with the Lord’s Supper, such as the lamb, the cup where the Apostles drank, the bread they ate, the washing of the feet, and all the events and conversations that took place.

Congregants of the Members Church of God International (MCGI) in Bicol Region hosted the sacrifice of Thanksgiving to God on March 11 at the Albay Astrodome.

Brethren from nearby provinces and offshore islands also traveled to Albay to celebrate with the Bicolanos in their mid-year thanksgiving.

Bro. Daniel took the opportunity to check the situation of the congregation in Bicol, addressing the needs especially of those directly affected by Mt. Mayon’s series of eruptions. They were also given the chance to consult their concerns with MCGI Overall Servant Bro. Eliseo Soriano.

Prior to the thanksgiving celebration, MCGI’s Lingap Kapatid Department (LKD) held a medical mission in two evacuation centers temporarily housing displaced residents in Albay.

MCGI and UNTV Medical Outreach: More than 400 in Guagua, Pampanga Benefitted

More than 400 residents of Brgy. Maquiapo in Guagua availed of the free services offered by the Members Church of God International (MCGI) and UNTV in a medical mission conducted in this town of Pampanga province.

It was the first time for MCGI and UNTV to conduct the medical mission in barangay Maquiapo.

“Just continue doing these kinds of services. God does not sleep, like the song said. I’m thankful because this is the first medical mission, dental and optical service of UNTV here,” said barangay chairman Delano Serrano. “This is the first time but I hope this is not the last.

One of those served was Norma Guzman, saying she has been enduring her heart ailment for a year now. Due to dire finances, Ms. Guzman said that she skipped getting herself checked-up by a doctor. She added that the medicines she need to take are too expensive, which she could not afford either.

“I’m happy because I can now ask for medicines, I thank God because UNTV came here,” said Ms. Norma in an interview. “It is a huge help here in our town.”

When she learned about the medical and dental mission by UNTV and MCGI in their barangay in Maquiapo, Ms. Guzman quickly enlisted herself to avail the free consultation service.

The 440 indigents from Brgy. Maquiapo availed of the following free services from the charitable outreach conducted by UNTV and MCGI:

  • Tooth extraction
  • Laboratory tests
  • Legal consultation
  • Free haircut services.
  • Free medicines
  • Free eyeglasses

The barangay officials hoped that the recent outreach program was just the beginning of more services that will be given by both UNTV and MCGI to their barangay.

The Members Church of God International or MCGI, together with UNTV News and Rescue, rendered free services to more than 500 residents of Barangay Magsaysay, San Pedro, Laguna in a medical mission held on February 1, 2018.

Barangay Magsaysay is the second largest barangay in the town of San Pedro, which is composed of more than 18,000 residents who are mostly indigents.

Hence, residents were delighted upon learning that the medical mission reached their barangay.

More than 130 children, those who are mostly suffering from cough and colds, were checked up by volunteer doctors of the medical outreach organized by UNTV’s Serbisyong Kasangbahay.

Among those served was Josephine Dolpina’s two-year old son, who has long been suffering from cough. Nanay Josephine thanked UNTV and MCGI for the medical assistance extended to her child since she could not afford medical check up services offered by private doctors.

“This is a huge help for us especially for the poor people like us. I am thankful for the medical mission,” said Nanay Josephine. “If we will go to a (hospital doctor), the service has a fee. We could not go at once because we have no money.”

In addition to pediatric consultation, the outreach program also offered free optical consultation, including the giving of free reading eye glasses to the indigents who availed the services.

The outreach mission also gave free dental extraction, ECG, haircut and legal consultation. Vitamins and medicines for patients were also given to the residents of the barangay present during the outreach.

This is the second time for UNTV and MCGI to conduct a medical mission in this barangay.

Barangay chairperson Jong Pascual expressed his gratitude to MCGI, UNTV and other public service partners for continuously reaching out to the residents of his barangay.

“We are very thankful because once we write a request it is immediately approved. It is a huge honor for us. Thank you so much. I hope this kind of program continues,“ said Chairperson Pascual.

Medical mission is just one of the charitable efforts consistently conducted by the Members Church of God International (MCGI). True to its advocacy of doing good to those in need regardless of life status, race and religion, MCGI champions and supports similar causes by UNTV and other government agencies.

MCGI and UNTV Medical Outreach Help More than 400 in Cebu


More than 400 residents of Brgy. Quiot in Cebu City availed the free medical and dental services offered by UNTV and Members Church of God International (MCGI) during their charitable outreach conducted earlier this month.

Lack of available livelihood and the massive fire incident that hit the area in February affected its residents. The UNTV and MCGI medical team came as a big help for the residents of Brgy. Quiot.

Among those who sought consultation was Wynnrose Belandria, a single mom whose infant has been suffering from recurring coughs and colds. Ms. Belandria only earns money through her sari-sari store to provide the needs for her six-month-old baby.

“It is great because the residents here had nothing, [they avail services] for free,” said Belandria. “It is really great because they provide joy to the people who have small budget and it also helps those who are sick and to the grandmothers who have eye problems and also vitamins for us”

More than 400 individuals availed of free medical, dental and optical services, such as tooth extraction, medical consultation, and optical check-up.

“We did not know how you found us, but we know that you exerted effort to find out the barangays that are in need of Kuya’s medical mission,” said Brgy. Councilor Gerry Auxiliao Jr. “That is why we are very thankful and we are hoping you will return and not grow tired because many are really sick.”

MCGI, a Christian religious organization, has Bro. Eli Soriano as Overall Servant supports UNTV’s advocacy to help people who are in need regardless of race, life status and religion.

More than 900 residents of Brgy. San Jose in Lipa City benefited from the medical mission conducted by the Members Church of God International (MCGI), UNTV. and their partners in public service.

One of the beneficiaries of the outreach program was Shiela Maralit, whose child has been suffering from asthma for 11 years.

Saying that the Php300 earnings her husband earns from selling pillows combined with her part-time sewing job is never enough. Maralit said she and her husband worry daily on how they will be able to support and buy their child’s medicines and other needs.

“When I had him checked up, it costs more than Php1,000 because of the medicine prescription that he will take for one month,” explained Maralit in an interview.

So when she learned about the medical mission to be conducted by UNTV and MCGI in their barangay in San Jose, Maralit did not hesitate to bring right away her child to the outreach to get examined and receive free medicines.

The medical mission also includes services such as medical consultation, free tooth extraction, free haircut and many more.

According to the barangay captain Melody Endozo, the medical mission conducted in their barangay was a great deal because it helped a lot of of her barangay’s residents.

“To Kuya Daniel and Brother Eli, thank you brothers and to all the doctors who are here, to the dentists and lawyers, and to all the staff of MCGI,” said barangay captain Endozo.

Barangay San Jose is one of the least populated towns in the province of Batangas, where the common livelihood of the residents here is sewing.
