Siargao is an island which is one of the tourists spots in the Philippines, It is a part of NeMM territory where we can find the Cloud 9 International Surfing Area, the Blue Lagoon near the Philippine Deep where the yearly International Fishing competition is regularly held, the beautiful sceneries of the Sohuton Cave, the attractive beaches of the place like Naked Island. All these attractions ignites peoples interests to visit the places.
Such wonderful sceneries motivated our SPUC leaders who are lovers of Nature. Mr. Levi Baliton, SPUC treasurer together with Pastor Nelson Paulo held an evangelistic Crusade. Mr. Baliton gave a nightly lectures on Family Life and Pr. Paulo conducted the Gospel lecture. It was in General Luna Gymnasium last June 2008 with a vision to build a church for new members and tourists who come and visit Siargao.
The dream indeed became materialized after having a total of 52 precious souls baptized after the crusade. The church was built and it was inaugurated and blessed on February 12, 2011. Those who graced the occasion of course were Pr Paulo and Mr. Baliton together with Retired SPUC President Pr. Wendell Serrano and Assistant Treasurer Chemuel Almocera. From Northeastern Mindanao Mission were Pr. Solomon V. Mongaya, the President, Mr. Cirilo S. Ba-al, the Treasurer, Architect Ryan Bautista who designed the church building.
On that special event the officers made another commitment for next year to have a District crusade in that island. This would really incur a big budget but behind all these will be more blessings when many souls will learn of God’s love and be brought unto His feet.
