Memorial Service

I only have two Christian Memorial service in mind:
  • Pastor Kevin and Tita Belle Alamag's, way back in 2007
  • Pastor Luis Pantoja Jr, last September 11, 2010
Yes, the people cry... Just as Jesus did in John 11:33-35:
"When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. "Where have you laid him?" he asked. "Come and see, Lord," they replied. Jesus wept."

But behind all those tears, the people of God are at peace and rejoicing... Yes, mourning but at peace and rejoicing! Because we are sure that the one(s) who left us went home to be with the Lord in heaven!
At sobrang nakaka-bless talaga yung memorial service last Sept 11... Nakakagulat at nakakatuwa rin na marami pang iba ang nag-blog about Pastor Luis' sudden death, these are few that I found when through google:

by Growth Revolution Magazine
by Straight from the Pastor
by Clueless Church Planter
by Southern Baptist Texan

At marami pang iba, I'm sure!

Sa Christian memorial service ko lang din nararamdaman at nakikita na ino-honor at ginoglorify si God at celebration of life and of God's faithfulness ang tawag... at syempre shine-share pa rin ang Gospel!

Here are just few photos:

Good thing we got in there early!
