(Eagle News) — Iglesia Ni Cristo Executive Minister Brother Eduardo V. Manalo officiated the worship service that dedicated the INC house of worship in Ladybrand, South Africa on August 6, 2017.

The 800-seater Ladybrand house of worship was filled with guests invited by INC brethren from all over South Africa and neighboring Lesotho.

“The place was filled. There was no more space. It was so packed. It was unbelievable,” said Sister Thato Mabote, a South African member of the Church.

“Now we can invite as many people as we want,” said another INC member, Brother Moses Montsi.

“We want this to be full each and every worship service,” he said.

Inspiring, amazing experience

Those who attended the worship service said that it was an inspiring and amazing experience.

“I am actually glad that Brother Eduardo decided to teach about the true Church here in Ladybrand,” Sister Thato said.

Another INC member, sister Juliet Molaoa, from South Africa recalls how it was so inspiring to hear Brother Eduardo
teach about the words of God and about the true Church.

“Now when the Executive Minister is the one who teaches them (the people) via scripture, everybody is wowed about it. It was just so inspiring, the way he was speaking,” she said.

Hannah Moore, one of the guests who attended the worship service described the experience as amazing.

“To have someone so passionate about religion… It’s amazing that it can actually have that effect on so many people. Everyone just become one, whether they earn millions or whether they earn nothing,” Moore noted.

“Everybody in that room was the same at that moment, and it was beautiful, it was amazing,” she added.

Brother Mmemeto Love, a former Pastor of the Holiness Pentecost Church in Zambia, is one of the many South Africans who welcomed the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) in Africa.

“Where we can find peace is in the Church. That’s why we find that these days, this Church is very much welcome in Africa,” he said.

The INC house of worship in Ladybrand is the seventh house of worship dedicated to God by the INC Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, this year.

From January to July 2017, the following were the houses of worship dedicated to God in worship services officiated by Brother Eduardo: Mountain View in Northwest California (Jan. 15); Universal City in Southern Midwest (Jan. 28); Park Ridge in Northern Midwest (Feb. 4); Flintshire in the United Kingdom (April 22); Village East in Rizal (June 16); and Pinugay also in Rizal (June 30).
