Dear Brothers and Sisters of Word International Ministries Netherlands,

Yesterday's (17 September 2017) event which marked our 22-year church anniversary
and marked a new phase of our leadership was such a glorious occasion. It truly is such
a blessed event for us to witness the symbolic handing-over of the ‘shepherd staff’ from
Pastora Ching to me as the senior pastor of our church (thanks to Pastor Manny de Leon,
Regional Director, and Pastor Rene Nepomuceno, International Director, who grace the
occasion to officiate the turn-over ceremony).

I carry this with great humility and honour. Humility because Sis. Ching's shoes are so big for
me to fill in and she is such a beloved leader I look up to emulate. Honour because I sincerely
felt the love of God expressed through your lives, especially yesterday’s warm welcome that I
felt from all of you starting from the Lansang family to each one who attended the church
anniversary service.

I sense yesterday that our Lord God have confirmed to me, my family and to all of us that this
was the confirmation of God's call for my family as well as His desire for our church community
here in the Netherlands.

In behalf of my wife, Susan and our son Stefan, we would like to express our deep gratitude to
each one of you in welcoming us into your hearts and your homes as we are welcoming you as
well into ours. We would like also to extend our appreciation and thanks to those who have prayed
for us for several years to be part of WIN NL and showed love and kindness when we were here to
visit the church last May of 2016.

May the Lord bless you and your love ones a thousand-fold.

In Christ,

Pastor Angel Cano
