Abundant Life Welcomes Gamiel Gamugamu and Grace Zabala!

Home > Latest Updates > 2014 Articles >
Gamiel Gamugamu and Grace Zabala of the Abundant Life Community SDA Church were baptized by Pastor Luis Bon, Jr. , professor and evangelist from the Philippines, on November 1st in Surrey, British Columbia.

After years of marriage with Rosanna, it took 5 years for Gamiel to be interested in studying the Bible first with Ben Berto, Head Elder of the Church, and then with Jun Jun and Bernadette Pedreso, Sabbath School Superintendents. Gamiel and Grace finally accepted the call of the Holy Spirit that led to their baptism.

Abundant Life Welcomes New Membes!

The baptismal ceremony was witnessed by the leaders and members of the Abundant Life Community Church, some of the Burnaby Filipino-Canadian Church, Elder Wesley Torres, Vice-President for Administration of the BC Conference of Seventh-day Adventist Church, Freddie Bagunu and Remy delos Reyes.    Freddie is the President of the Filipino Seniors Club of B.C. (FSCBC) who gave a testimony on how his search for the Sabbath, led him to attend the Health Seminars of Pastor Bon from October 1-25 in Vancouver.   He then was also baptized on November 8th at the Vancouver Filipino SDA Church.   We are praying that God will use Freddie mightily to help us reach out to the thousands of Filipinos around us also searching for truth.

The work of the Holy Spirit in the Filipino Churches is growing in leaps and bounds and we urgently need hard working, dedicated leaders and just as energetic pastors who can better understand and relate to the complexity of our culture and values especially when dealing with conflict resolutions.
