The International MC Gathering – A Homecoming
Tuesday, July 7, 2015

MEMBERS of the International Mission Core from Metro Manila, the Philippine Missions and International Missions were welcomed by colorful balloons and photo walls in a homecoming-themed assembly last June 17, 2015 at the MOA SMX.


To complete the homecoming effect, the CFC leaders were asked to come in colors representing the decade when they joined the community. Those from the 1981 to 1990 era came in blue, while those from 1991 to 2000 wore green. The graduates of 2001 to 2010 came in yellow, while those who joined CFC from 2011 to the present were asked to wear red. Everybody had fun posing and taking photos with their households and “batch mates” on the walls bearing their color and decade. 


CFC Chairman Joe Tale presided over the prayer assembly. After the moving worship and words of inspiration, the MC posthumously honored two men, both CFC leaders and movers in their own rights—the late Joey Arguelles and Bob Serrano. They were accorded the Apostolic Zeal Award to honor their contributions to the mission of Couples for Christ.


Joey Arguelles was one of the pioneers of Couples for Christ, who, with his wife Tessie, joined the community in the late 80’s. In his more than three decades of serving the Lord through CFC, he had raised many leaders and left a lasting legacy of faith, devotion to Our Mother Mary, service and love for brethren.


Bob Serrano, on the other hand, was a spirited leader, a creative musician and a loving father not only to his children, but to all who he took under his wing. He was the genius behind the 29 AD Musicionaries, as well as two of the most celebrated musical plays born in CFC—Selpie and Teen Saint Pedro, the Musical.


The medals were given to their widows, Tessie and Aileen, respectively.


The evening may have been a mixture of joy and sorrow, but one thing is sure—the reminiscing of memories will always bring CFC members back to the very reason why each one responded to the call of the Lord to serve in CFC. (Text by the CFC Docu Team; photos by Ruel Tenerife)
