I don't know what to say about me.I came in this world as nothing. I was born in a little town of Capalonga, Camarines Norte, just 8 hours travel from Manila City, Philippines. On November 8, 1963, midnight, my mother was laboring with me, between life and death,perhaps, signifying that the child don't want to experience life in this Earth.
My father not knowing what to do left everything in the will of God. The only midwife in the village felt that only one of us ( i.e. my mother or I) will be alive. But fortunately, nothing happened to both of us. My father must have had a great relief when I was finally born!!
The midwife had to tap my back for about twenty minutes before I gave the first cry.
I grew up as a child in the dense forests of Camarines Norte where my parents had bought a piece of timber land to cultivate for us to live. Day after day, I was helping my parents together with my brothers and sisters to till the 24 hectares timber land. We encountered snakes, wildpigs, dangerous reptiles, monkeys, wildcats, and so many hardships just to live. When I started to go to my first grade school, I walked 4 kilometers just to attend my classes. I came back with my brothers and sisters in the evening. It was a terrible experience of my life. When I recall my sad childhood experience I say to myself, that kind of situation should not be experienced by my children.
Thereare six brothers and six sisters in my family. I don't know how my parents took care of us while we were young. We were not rich. But when my eldest brother and sister reach the age of 14 to 15 they started to adventure in the city to find jobs to help my parents. Eventually,one of my Brothers married and settled down in Manila. He invited me to come and stayed with him. He also supported my elementary education. I was very happy during that time. And my opportunity continued after my elementary Education. My Uncle who is a Public High School Head took me and helped me to finish my high School and Post Secondary in College.
When I was converted to Christianity I heard the calling of God for me.For 9 years I have been preaching, evangelising and organizing gospel concerts and crusades, Bible camps and conferences, etc. God gave me a congregation with whom together I have built a chuirch called the Greenland Christian Church today. Many trials afflicted me but thanks God for his sustaining Grace after those trials there will always blessings.Today I am studying at Kwangshin University, Kwangju City, South Korea, where my personal site is made.
To God be the Glory!
