Biao Update January 21st., 2012 from Bishop Leo

Today we received correspondence from Bishop Leo Soriano that the turn over ceremony for the new Bishop was held on January 13th. He will be telling the new Bishop, Ciriaco Franscisco, more details on the Biao church so he understands the history of the mission there. I did send an introductory email to Bishop Franscisco with a link our blog, thought this would help with some background as well.

We look forward to meeting Bishop Franscisco someday in the near future.

Biao Church and Bishop Soriano Update

In December our Missions committee was able to send proceeds from our mission breakfasts to Pastor July. I’m sure this was a blessing to him, I know I was thankful that our efforts went to good use.

I received a note from Bishop Soriano that the Philippine Central Conference has adjourned. With his retirement a new Bishop has been assigned to the Davao Area, which oversees Biao. His name is Bishop Ciriaco Francisco. Bishop Sorinao advised that when they have endorsed supervision he will get back in touch with further details. I wish Bishop Soriano the best with his new chapter in life and greatly appreciate all his help and support with the Biao Church establishment.

Biao Church Update from Bishop Soriano

On Wednesday, September 19th I heard from Bishop Soriano. Things are going well in the Philippines but very busy with his retirement nearing. The land for the Biao church is still in process. There are three hearings in court that has to be made before the papers can be processed for perfection. They have been through two of the hearings already so the final process is getting close.
