* FRCB 8th Anniversary

This past Sunday we attended the a.m. service of the First Reformed Church of Bulacan (where we normally go on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month).  Sharon's parents (Prof. and Mrs. Hanko) are here for a week on their way to Singapore, so they were able to come along and to meet one of the congregations we regularly visit.  We left home at 6:15 a.m. for their 8:00 a.m. worship service.  Pastor John Flores preached a sermon on Jeremiah 6:16, making application to Reformation Day as well as to the church's 8th anniversary as a Reformed congregation.  The sermon was in Tagalog, but we were provided with an English outline, which enabled us (at least Sharon and me) to follow along and to catch quite a bit of the Tagalog.

As Prof. Hanko said, it was a joy to meet this small group of Reformed believers in the middle of Manila's millions, and to experience first hand what it means to belong to the universal body of Christ.  We thoroughly enjoyed our time of worship and fellowship.
