I Am A Soldier

Image
I am a soldier in the army of my God. The Lord Jesus Christ is my ...Commanding Officer. The Holy Bible is my code of conduct. Faith , prayer and the Word are my weapons of warfare. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity and tested by fire.

I am a volunteer in this army, and I am enlisted for eternity. I will either retire in this army at the rapture or die in this army. But I will not get out, sell out, be talked out or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable and dependable. If my God needs me I am there. If He needs me in the Sunday School to teach the children, work with the youth, help adults or just sit and learn He can use me because I am there!

I am a soldier. I am not a baby. I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up or pumped up, picked up or pepped up. I am a soldier. I am not a wimp. I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name and building His kingdom! No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, c…

Ask In Faith, Expect An Answer

Image
I got this from CBN.com and it's really very encouraging especially if you are going through trials in life. When I was in the states, I've been a faithful partner of CBN for three years until we came here in the Philippines. I always watch their tv show 700 Club and I was always inspired and learned a lot of lessons by watching their program.

Five Faith-Building Steps To A Powerful Prayer Life

1. Endure: Don't lose heart. Keep praising God for His goodness. (James 1:1-4)

James encourages us to "consider it all joy" when we encounter trials that test our faith. That may sound difficult. But as we endure these trials, pressing on in faith and believing God has our best interests at heart, we will emerge from the experience "perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." Often, God allows us to go through difficult challenges because those very experiences shape us to receive the answer He has already prepared. Even in the midst of pain, if we can press …

Ministry Update

Image
Our order of 40 Bibles arrived last week. We got it at the Bible League at a much lower price than PCBS. We bought 20 Bibles last month from PCBS and gave it to the kids in my Sunday school and the rest we gave it to the adults who were attending our worship service. We mentioned it to one of our pastor friends and he was the one who suggested to us to buy Bibles at the Bible League. So hubby ordered 40 so all in all we bought 60 Bibles already. Hubby has a vision that more and more people will attend our church and we need Bibles to give out to them.
Right now, we are so thankful that our ministry is growing. This past Sunday, we started Sunday school for the adults with my brother-in-law, Jhun as the teacher. There were around 9 adults who attended and there were 20 kids in my Sunday school. During the worship service there were 16 adults who were present plus the kids, praise God! Two young moms whom I’ve been inviting a few times already showed up finally. I was so g…

My Personal Testimony (Part I)

Image
This is a re-post...

Here is one chapter in my life that will always stay fresh in my mind. Sometimes I don’t want to think about it because it brings back a tremendous feeling in me but the Holy Spirit has been leading me to share it here in my blog. This experience in my life is a living proof that God is still the same yesterday, today and forever and miracles happen when we pray. I’m not telling this to glorify myself or anybody but to glorify the name of Jesus, my Healer.

It was September 1995 when I felt a lump in my left breast while I was taking a bath. I got worried but I can’t go to the doctor at that time because I had no money, no job and my grandmother who had been supporting us from her pension just passed away. My sister Violy was the sole bread-winner at that time and life was not that easy. I am a college graduate but it was not easy to get a job in the Philippines. I tried my best to look for one and I applied in different offices but no luck. Then after a few months o…

Updates Of Our Ministry

Image
I know it's been ages since the last time I updated this blog. I just wanna write here the updates of our ministry. My Sunday school class is still on-going every Sunday. Hubby and I drive there as early as 8:15 AM every Sunday and Sunday school begins at 8:30 AM. I have 15 kids who attend regularly in our outreach ministry and sometimes the attendance go up as high as 22. I love teaching those kids and they really inspire me because they are so interested in learning the lessons I teach every Sunday. I have taught them Christian songs, gave them Bible verses to memorize, told them Bible stories, taught them how to pray and talk to God, taught them not to speak bad words and not to quarrel to their fellow kids and lately I taught them to give offerings to God. Those kids started at my VBS class last summer and until now they continue attending my Sunday school class. Ten of them got saved and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. They enjoy doing the coloring pages that I give …

DVBS 2010

Image
When I was I kid I used to attend DVBS (Daily Vacation Bible School) during summer. I enjoyed listening to Bible stories and doing some activities like coloring and game competitions. That was many moon years back but I still remember the stories I heard and the songs we sang at VBS. Many years had passed and now I’m a VBS teacher. Yesiree!!! I taught VBS this past week and I tell you I had fun. I am a licensed secondary school teacher major in Math but I never dreamed that I would be a VBS teacher. I believe that it’s all part of God’s plan that instead of teaching Math, I would be teaching the Word of God to the kids. Who would have thought that I would become a missionary’s wife and start a ministry here in my homeland? But God chose me and I would have to be obedient to His calling.

Last week we went from house to house in one of the barangays here in our town about 2 miles away from our house. Most of the people there are my kinfolks and most of them are not yet saved. So hubby a…
