It is a blessing to see some fruits of service by God’s grace for the Quezon District in which it held its District Conference Session for this year held at the Atimonan United Methodist Church in Atimonan, Quezon last January 23 – 24, 2015. Presided over by its district superintendent – Rev. Joseph Flores who inspite of limited financial support has strive to serve God and the district since he was appointed last 2011 by then the interim bishop of the Manila Episcopal Area – Bishop Daniel Arichea. The district through its COM has acknowledge the district superintendent’s service for almost 4 years.
The small district which is composed of few churches and mission congregation strives to serve the Lord inspite of current situation. Many of the church workers are considering its condition as a district body and looking for ways how to sustain it. Because of growing mission congregations the need for connectional support is more in need. But the challenge is to continue the current resources and rely more on God’s provision for the mission.
One of the blessings of harvest for the district are people committing to serve especially for the pastoral ministry. A youth named Malvin Magpantay has decided to enter the pastoral ministry and would undergo as candidate status. He was currently an officer of the Conference UMYF. Also a lay member from Kalinangan UMC in Calauag, Quezon Natividad Maniego decided to be a Lay Minister. Many lay people are challenged to serve in the full time ministry as they see the call of God in the lives and the current situation of the district even of the province.
