When I stepped into the conference hall, four beautiful young people looked up. First surprise, then recognition, then warm smiles crossed their faces. I had been invited to promote the ministry at a Southern Baptist Pastors’ Conference. I wondered why the girls kept glancing at me. As soon as the conference was over, they approached […]Read more "TO SEE THE FRUIT OF TEACHING GOD’S WORD"
It was four years ago when I came to this church in Brgy. Dalig, Cardona, Rizal. Since that time, our average attendance on Sundays had been 20 to 30 people. The atmosphere was dry, lonely and we were financially struggling. Until CEF came to our church this year through Bro. Ruther, Oro and company offering […]Read more "BECAUSE OF HIS CHANGED LIFE"
I am Filipino but I was born and raised in Malaysia. That is where my mother went to work and where she met my father. Despite spending the first ten years of my life in an “M” community, I grew up observing strong traditional Christian values. My family returned to the Philippines for good in […]Read more "BREAKTHROUGH IN MY FAITH"
It was the God-Man film and the Wordless Book introduced by some people at our school in 2007 where I first heard about Jesus who can be my Lord and Savior. That moment, I clearly understood I had sinned and that I need Jesus. After that we were asked to pray to accept Him. I […]Read more "REACHING CHILDREN FOR JESUS AS I WAS REACHED"
Pastor Joel Indico invited me to join CEF back in the early ‘80s when he spoke at a training event at Basa Gospel Church, Floridablanca, Pampanga.

Charles Spurgeon wrote, “My conviction is that our converts from among children are among the best that we have. I should judge them to have more numerously genuine than any other class, more constant, and in the long run more solid.” The Lord be praised with how the students are responding to God’s Word and […]Read more "GIVING BACK TO THE LORD"
In 2012 to 2013, Teacher Ems came to La Opinion to teach me and my friends in a 5-Day Club. It was there that I received Christ as my Lord and Savior. I can still remember how we were taught about Jesus and about what He did for us. I used to gamble with other […]Read more "WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE FOR JESUS"
I admit that at first, what got me excited about attending the 5-Day Club being held in my neighborhood was the free snacks served at the end of each meeting. But God used that opportunity to lead me to Him. I was six or seven years old when I first started attending the 5-Day Club […]Read more "A BURDEN GOD PLACED IN MY HEART"
I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior in 1979 during a 5-Day Club of the Church of the Nazarene near my home in Bo. Obrero, Davao City. It was Pastora Nena Nonan, a CEF-trained worker, who led me to the Lord. I was 13 then. Soon, I became active in the GNC hosted by […]Read more "REACHING CHILDREN… ‘TIL JESUS COMES"
