Spirit Empowerment Seminar (SES)
August 13, 2017
The third leg of the recently concluded TLF Spirit Empowerment Seminar (SES) for this year 2017 was attended by 232 guests last August 12 and 13. 146 seekers received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. These seekers who are gifts sent to us by the Lord were invited by the various ministries of our community. 65 of them came from the Relentless concert held in Araneta Coliseum last July 1. As they arrived at the Heritage Formation Center, they were welcomed by our Elders and leaders from different ministries, extending to them the TLF seven-minute impression.
The seminar gave them hope to know Jesus personally and intimately as these souls accepted Him as their Lord and Savior. Testimonies on experiencing the manifestations of the Holy Spirit like fire, water, wind, uncontrollable tears and vision were shared by the participants after the Baptism.
The highlight of the seminar was receiving Christ in the Holy Eucharist. Since they were already empowered by the Holy Spirit, the participants were able to understand the Sunday gospel in Matthew 14:22-33. As what Fr.Jojo Letada has preached, all we have to do is to believe, cry out and hold on to Jesus.
