Dear Dr. Spitzer,
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ!
On behalf of the Convention of Philippine Baptist Churches, I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the ABCUSA Board of General Ministries for approving our invitation to join CPBC in the annual commemoration of the Hopevale event in the month of December. This favourable action of your Board comes to us as a great encouragement, for indeed, it affirms our common missiological identity and our strong commitment to uphold our historic partnership in doing God’s mission in the world.
We are so glad to know that ABCUSA is working so hard to make its first ever nationwide celebration of the Hopevale event very meaningful in the lives of its member churches and constituents. Rest assured of our continued prayers and full support as you prepare for this memorable and historic event.
In Christ we remain,
Rev. Dr. Jerson B. Narciso
Convention of Philippine Baptist Churches
The Hopevale Commemoration is a joint project of the ABCUSA Office of the General Secretary, American Baptist International Ministries, the American Baptist Historical Society and the Green Lake Conference Center. The 2019 Commemoration is powered in part by United Mission and a grant from the Lee and Lois Spitzer Endless Possibilities Charitable Fund in honor of the friendship between ABCUSA and the Convention of Philippine Baptist Churches.
