God @ Work, Nov to Dec 2014

Engage HIS POWER, enlarge your VISION, expand your CAPACITY, having this message in our hearts as we left Port Dickson, Malaysia…we started to pray and allowed GOD to work in us.

November and December were full of readings and research to prepare us for January 2015. This also became a period when Sis. Juvy and me, as a couple, have to observe and live the rule of life we have learned for us individually, as a couple and for our family and our ministry.

Going back to Iloilo, we have been given the opportunity to go back and have our site leadership tasks, but we respectfully asked our leaders to bless us and told them that we will start our ministry to the Body of Christ, that of prayer counseling & healing and mission mobilization.

Slowly, we started to receive from God, how our weekend messages will synchronize to our new path in our call journey with Him for the Body of Christ.

Last December 14, 2014, we started to incorporate what GOD is telling us to do in our everyday life, starting with our His Life family in Iloilo…

As Ambassadors of Christ, as channels of reconciliation for people to go back to GOD, 2 Corinthians 5:18 was our guiding scriptures as we share the Christmas message to the church in Iloilo and Bacolod. We share Jesus Christ as GOD’s GIFT of LOVE, H.U.G (acronym for Human but Holy, Unconditional yet Unfailing, Gift of Grace) and to live GOD’s LOVE practically by simply starting to hug people, doing the 4-8-12! God’s people welcomed it and now being done as a Sunday welcoming act for everyone, especially first time visitors to feel at home in the church.

We continue to serve the body of Christ…in our Christmas Family Day, four people followed JESUS in water baptism, 18 people completed the Kairos Course in BCIF church and were mobilized for GOD’s Mission, giving emphasis to cross-cultural missions, to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Read more about mobilizing. 

We continue to share about the ministry of prayer counseling and healing to families and friends and we are seeing how GOD organizes our prayer support group.

It was also the same message we shared to our His Life family in East (am) last December 18, their last Sunday celebration at Lopue’s East venue for 2014. People welcomed and responded well to what God wants them to start doing in their life as believers, to be channel of HIS reconciling love.

During the 2nd half of December, our message to the body going into New Year 2015 is to LIVE LIFE in GOD’s PERSPECTIVE, to start LIFE in the last days as TRUE WORSHIPPER’s of GOD, worshiping GOD in Spirit and in Truth and will spill to January 2015 with the TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE.  Through these messages that GOD allows us to share to the Body of Christ, we were able to expose the schemes (lies and deceptions) of the enemy in science, media, and lifestyles identity and destiny, how the family is being used by the enemy to curse instead of GOD original design to bless the children.

Please continue to pray for us as we receive invitations, informal yet, to share in small groups and Sunday preaching about prayer counseling and healing, identity and destiny in His Life and in the Body of Christ.

We thank GOD and are grateful to our friends and partners: His Life family, fellow Kairos advocates and Raphah Malaysia, leaders-fellow alumni for the financial seeds that have sustained our family and ministry needs during November and December. Thank you Raphah Ipoh Center for adopting to lift us in love and in prayer. Click here to know more about Raphah Ministries Malaysia

We continue to bring to GOD our requests to have our Raphah Internship completed within 2015 in Malaysia as we follow GOD to bring our Redeemer King, our Healer for GOD’s people in implementing Raphah Philippines to raise and equip counseling and healing ministry group within the Body of Christ.

Shalom and wishing everyone a great 2015.

God ushering us to our Journey with Him…

“how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news…”, i heard this in 1995 from a mentor pastor, entitled “foot spa”, now in cebu, a year before we relocated to Bacolod City.

Our early years in missions…we thank God for our friends from YWAM, back in 1997, they were used by GOD to expose us in missions while we cooperate with HIM as we co-managed  our software and hardware business.

Missions aligned us to His heart in church planting…we formally asked to be released from our previous church to be involved in what God is doing in missions in the Body of Christ, that sunday of June 2007, GOD ministered to us through the preaching “Hurting People Hurt People, Healed People Help People”…that in the process of obeying God, His leaders, unknowingly-unintentionally left wounds in us and thank God that our small group ministry nurtured us back to forgive, be healed, be equipped and served Him. By His grace, we have been a part of team who pioneered a site in Bacolod City. By June 2009, God called us to continue the work in Iloilo City as site leaders and shepherd the flock. We got introduced in 2012 to the truth that MISSION and missions are two different terms, to be part of World Christian Movement, through facilitating the Kairos Course, we got involved in the mobilization of the Body of Christ for Mission.

After more than seven years, being prepared by God to face new opportunities and new challenges, we obeyed Him to renew our vows, and declare blessings to our children, GOD’s opportunities and blessings came also with new challenges…to follow Him again in MISSION…to be a blessing to the Body of Christ, again we experience that our obedience to GOD has its costs, we had to endorse our site pastoral functions, praise GOD for our local leadership team-readied by GOD, so that we can be able to work in the Body of Christ. In so doing, we receive healthy and unhealthy feedbacks, the later leaving wounds again in the inside. But GOD is ALWAYS GOOD, HE MAKES OUR FEET BEAUTIFUL.

We arrive in Port Dickson October 9, 2014 to attend Raphah School of Prayer Counseling and Healing. I remember telling our Raphah mentors and leaders that it is not “traumatic” but “exciting” why we got lost in the bigness of KLIA2. We received LOVE, GOD spoke again to us, HE reconciled us to HIS MESSAGE “hurting people hurt people”. This is no longer  a coincidence, i said to myself, that every time we pursued to obey HIM in MISSION, that phrase “hurting people hurt people” comes into the picture…throughout the school…in 14 days of rigorous 830am to 10pm classes with personal prayer counseling sessions, GOD revealed to us that we are hurting, wounded and needs restoration and healing…past and present, all throughout we saw how the prayer counseling and healing process, pointing to JESUS’, HIS LORDSHIP, HIS Word, His finished work at THE CROSS and with the comforting presence of The HOLY SPIRIT at work in us as beloved children of GOD. We saw that even in my troubled and difficult childhood, GOD is already at work in me.GOD’s prophetic revelations were uttered also for us during the school and we received them personally as GOD’s message to us…”do not fear to step on un-chartered paths” and “an old spring will dry up but a new spring with fresh waters you will drink from”, the latter statement an affirmation of an email message coming from one of our mentors but the term used was “brooks” instead of “springs”. We Thank GOD for the encouragement that through the gifts that HE has blessed HIS people we were restored, made whole for HIS PURPOSE!

We also saw the church-the Body of Christ, broken, wounded, sick, flying with one wing because the other wing is broken, that instead of soaring high to obey GOD’s purpose and will, to bring the TESTIMONY of THE GOSPEL to ALL NATIONS, for the GLORY of GOD to cover the earth  as the waters covers the seas…the church keeps moving in circles not advancing…the enemy at work in stealing, destroying and killing GOD’s people. God revealed to us how prayer counseling as an essential Biblical process and an effective ministry will remove the blinders and uproot-destroy strongholds, in a spiritual battle, in the mind and hearts of God’s people so that they can live a full life in obeying GOD’s MISSION just as JESUS’ promised in John 10:10. GOD also allowed us to see how HE has used our Malaysian brethren to bless the nations of the world, HE also revealed to us the Daniels, of today, in Babylon, in foreign lands, the Filipino Christian OFW’s, that instead of having the Daniel’s anointing, of not compromising, they missed GOD’s outworking in their life in their country of destination and have also been a channel of the enemy’s destruction in their family back home because of unresolved hurts, broken past and unhealed deep wounds. Thank You HOLY SPIRIT for revealing these things to us!

We thank the LORD for HIS WAYS is higher than our ways, all we have to do is fully yield and YIELD we do…we have, in FAITH, decided to follow HIM to start the prayer counseling and healing ministry with us under accountability to GOD and to our mentors in Raphah Malaysia. We have decided also to continue our MISSION mobilization under accountability to Living Springs International, facilitating Kairos Course- we will be doing this as GOD outwork HIS PLAN for us in the BODY of CHRIST, in HIS PERFECT WILL. By the grace of GOD, we will still continue with our covenanted church life with ONE HIS LIFE as we work with various members of THE BODY of CHRIST!

We give thanks to GOD for allowing us to live a FULL LIFE here in Iloilo, Bacolod, Manila, Philippines, Malaysia and in ALL NATIONS, wherever HE leads us. We don’t know what’s next but we are certain that IN HIM WE WILL MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING!

We give thanks to YAHWEH GOD, the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that in CHRIST JESUS and in the power of THE HOLY SPIRIT, that all GOD’s people, baptists, pentecostals, methodists, anglicans and other groups, who have been chosen and have received the call of GOD, who have been reconciled, who have been born by the spirit of GOD, that in HIS TIME, we will all come to the maturity of our faith- in Christ likeness and reign with KING JESUS in eternity. Maranatha!

Welcome and A Blessed 2015!

Welcome to our blog!

This is our simple way of sharing to you our journey with our Amazing God as a couple, as parents to our sons Jairo, Jaiko, Jethro and Jeremiah and as servants in GOD’s Kingdom.

Time flies so fast, before it was so easy to hug them but now they are all grown ups, each with a set of priorities, activities and group of friends. We missed the days of going out to another place to spend New Year’s eve. We thank God for His continued grace in protecting them and providing for their needs. God is always faithful, indeed His love endures forever, always unfailing and unconditional.

Since that December 12, 2013 when God told me to renew my vows with my wife, Juvy, to be strengthened, to be prepared for greater opportunities for great challenges will come in 2014 and beyond, we saw a lot of faith building stories unfold in our life. God is creating His story for His glory to be revealed in our life as a family through our faith in Christ. By His grace we are seeing it happening…how GOD continue His work in us and in the lives of people, dear family and friends He has connected with us.

Expect a lot of posts here about what God had done during 2014 and in the past years. These stories will serve as our jumping point for more of what God will be doing in 2015 and the coming years. Matthew 19:26 states “nothing is impossible with God”, indeed we can have victory if we choose to stand with JESUS CHRIST as our LORD, by being in GOD’s presence always and engaging-fully trusting HIS power as we obey every TRUTH that He wants us to LIVE, for the TRUTH from GOD will always sets us FREE.

The Bible is God’s Revelation to us, Jesus’ Cross is our Point of Redemption and Eternity is our Destiny! We are writing God’s stories as we work with fellow servants…our pastors, small group leaders, Godly mentors, fellow brethren in the Body of Christ, classmates, mobilizers and co-laborers in God’s harvest field. Thanks to you all for obeying God in loving us.

You are God’s channel of His blessings to us. May you continue to cover us in prayer…thank you for your financial seeds of love and Godly counsel…we acknowledge our accountability to GOD and to you.As we embark in an added new chapter of our journey starting this January 2015 in the ministry of prayer counseling & healing and to continually mobilizing the Body of Christ in obedient pursuit of God’s Mission to All Nations, let us hold our hands together in our bended knees, yielded to the Ways of Master Jesus for the glory of GOD.

You are Saved to Served. You are Healed to Help People! You are Blessed to be a Blessing.

Welcome online, welcome to an exciting Life with our Amazing God, let HIS KINGDOM COME, let HIS WILL BE DONE in JESUS Name!
