JE # 65 – Happy 23rd Anniversary DBD

It was the year 1985 when a group led by Eduardo Lapiz started a small Bible Study group in a country in West Asia. The group was later called the “Wednesday Group” as they were meeting on Wednesday.

In 1987, the name “Day by Day” was agreed to be the new name of the church for its meaning, repetitive poetic sound, strong consonants, and impact.

1989 was the year when Pastor Ed went back in the Philippines for threats of arrest and imprisonment due to religious work in that country. From 1989, more local churches has been planted all over the Philippines, USA, Japan, Canada, Pakistan and other West Asian Countries. For a detailed church history (the first five years), you may visit Day by Day New Jersey’s website.

I thank God for the pioneering works in West Asia. Without those people, I might not call myself a “Christian” today. Based on their stories, they had a hard time sharing and talking about Jesus there. Praise God because we can worship in this country freely. I know that their labor is not in vain. I thank Pastor Ed for his commitment, for his heart. I am a product of his ministration and is blessed by his messages. That’s the reason why I’m sharing the messages here.

If I can get a copy of the church History video, I’ll share it here next week. Happy Anniversary everyone!

Mabuhay and Dios!
