Jesus Miracle Crusade holds drug symposium dubbed ‘Oplan Gugma’
TUGUEGARAO CITY – The Tuguegarao City Outstation of the Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry (JMCIM) has recently conducted a drug symposium in one of the public schools here.
The event was held at the gymnasium of Linao National High School – one of the biggest schools here – where over a thousand mostly students and teachers attended the symposium.
It was spearheaded by JMCIM Tuguegarao Outstation led by Ordained Preacher Bro. Danny Cuarteros whose aim is to help the Duterte administration in its efforts to re-educate the youth on the dangers posed of illegal drugs – its effects and causes – not only in Tuguegarao and nearby towns and provinces, but in the whole country.
The occasion was also graced by Senior Superintendent Jessie Tamayao, the city police chief, who gave some words of warning to the young students about the ill-effects of illegal drugs, and encouragement as well, for the youth to take part in the government’s fight against drug abuse.
Two JMCIM members, Bro. Marcelo Relos and Bro. Sherwin Baquiran, also shared their testimonies, having been hooked on drugs for so many years and were eventually set free from the bondage of drug addiction after renewing their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ through the JMCIM, a congregation headed by the Honorable Evangelist Pastor Wilde E. Almeda.
“The good news is almost all of those who attended the event raised their hands and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour,” Cuarteros said.
He said the symposium was concluded with a mini-concert performed by Jesus Miracle Youth Crusade members, a group f young men and women who praise and worship God through singing. “The concert was so lively that even nonchristian students sang, danced, jumped and shouted all throughout as they worshipped the Lord,” Cuarteros said.
This symposium is the first of a series of symposia – dubbed Oplan Gugma (Love) – to be conducted in different campuses in Tuguegarao City. A bigger campus crusade and drug symposium is also set at Cagayan National High School which has over 10,000 students.
Both Relos and Baquiran, and Cuarteros were also interviewed by Radyo Mindanao, a news talk program over RPNDXXX hosted by Al Jacinto in Zamboanga City and broadcast in Western and Central Mindanao, and as far as General Santos City and Sabah.
They gave their testimonies separately and inspired many listeners by their courage to go public with their past lives and repented and changed for the better, and embraced God through the JMCIM.
“Thru the leading prayers and fasting of our Beloved and Honorable Prophet Evangelist Pastor Wilde Estrada Almeda and the Beloved Children hundreds of drug pushers and users (were) convinced to surrender through the Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry,” Cuarteros said.
