It was joined by some 60,000 to 100,000 INC members coming from San Carlos City in the north to Hinobaan town in the south.
The GEM was held simultaneously by the INC in major areas of the country and was covered live through Net25 and GEM TV networks, among others.
“The activity was purely religious. It merely featured the doctrines of the church based on the Bible. It was not for any person nor was it political. It was to proclaim again the true church,” INC leaders said.*(APT)
