No tragedy can ever stop a worshiping heart from honoring the Living God. This has been portrayed by the people of JIL Church Biliran as they victoriously held their thanksgiving anniversary on February 28, 2015 at JIL Culaba, Biliran with the theme "Let Your Kingdom Come." A total of 150 worshippers gathered to celebrate God's goodness and offered Him their thanksgiving. The anniversary celebration was attended by some City and Barangay Councilors of the Province of Biliran.

People were inspired and challenged as they heard God's message of hope delivered by Ptr. Roque Penalosa, Regional Pastor of JIL National Operation, Region 8 (Eastern Visayas). This kind of celebration was the people's demonstration of their faithfulness to God in their desire of giving Him the highest honor. If we will still remember, the province of Biliran was one of the places that was severely ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda in 2013 along with the Provinces of Samar, Leyte, and Tacloban City.
Truly, God is so good to His people!
