Bad Times? Something good can come out of this!

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the ways we live–including how we serve in the Lord’s ministry. But even if there are physical restrictions, our being fishers of men cannot be deterred.

For Sis. Maricris Pammit of JIL San Isidro, Cabuyao, Laguna and Sis. Karylle Cabugatan of JIL Peace Village/Inarawan and Pinugay, Antipolo City, sharing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ must continue.

God has Other Plans

A Testimony by Sis. Gi Laurel-Emas

Karlo and I have been married for eight years. We have made a conscious decision to wait to have children because of what was happening in the different aspects of our lives for the past seven years. But finally, last summer, after much prayer, we decided to start trying to conceive. After some months, I finally had a positive pregnancy test. That was in March, and we were so happy and thankful to the Lord.

Healed inside out

Healed inside out

Imagine: You are 15 years old, and living just like any other teen-ager. You have school, you have friends, you have dreams. You dream that 10 years from now, you are already a doctor or a lawyer or a teacher. You think of your family and it drives you all the more to pursue your ambitions. And imagine the unbelief and pain when your normal life was disturbed by one visit to the hospital where the doctors proclaimed, “You have cancer.”

Tatay Rene: Journey to Greatness

Tatay Rene: Journey to Greatness

Being a father is more than a role. It’s a calling, and it’s a tough one. As the head of the family, he must be strong, even amid difficult situations. He must be a role model to his children. He must work hard, even to the point of neglecting the strain of it on his body. And most importantly, he must be wise in his decisions because one mistake could cost him and his family everything. Fatherhood, indeed, is hard enough. But imagine how much harder it would be if a father also takes the role of a mother. Tatay Reynaldo “Rene” Sarmiento of the Jesus Is Lord (JIL) Church Manggahan Chapter in Rodriguez, Rizal became a widower 17 years ago when his wife died due to a kidney disease. From that moment on, he had to take care of the needs of his six children by himself.
