2015 Remembered

What is it to remember?

In Hebrew, to remember means properly to mark, make mention of, be mindful, recount, record; while in Greek it is to exercise memory, that is, recollect; to rehearse: make mention, be mindful.

“I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember Your wonders of old.”
Psalm 77:11

January-final-1

“Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!”
Psalm 105:1-2

Value of one

What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
Luke 15:4,5
ESV

Countdown to our First Graduate Dedication at “My Father’s House Bible Center,” on May 29, 2015.

“The value of one…”

Baptism of one

Be in prayer for the “what next” of God as that day approaches…

Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time.”
– Oswald Chambers

Stay tuned…

What’s your story?

One student a year who hears God’s call would be sufficient for God to have called (My Father’s House, mine) Bible Training College into existence.Oswald Chambers

I find God truly amazing in the way He communicates with His children, in this case, me. I am known by Him as His “little one”, Nenita. That is what my name means or to put it exactly, little baby girl.

It used to upset me that my mother picked it from a movie, “Nenita, Ang Munting Koronel” (Little Coronel in English) whose main character was played by a child icon like Shirley Temple, Tessie Agana. Alone-againThis of course, is my mother’s story of how I came to be me. In college, my new found friend in Nursing School couldn’t properly say my nickname, Nenette. I became Nanette from then on, but at home with my family, it was still Nenette.

It will perhaps give you a smirk to know that there was nothing about my name, or me that I really liked. Neither was I fond of my own native origin, Biñan or for that matter, the Philippines as a whole. This my friends, is a subject best written another day but try not to judge me until you get to read Part II, the second installment. I simply wanted to give you a brief on how Nenita became.

Fast forward to today…I love me, I love my name and everything that it stands for. Little-girls-2I am joyfully my Father’s little one, and very proud to be. In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 10:14-15, Jesus gently rebukes His disciples with this, “Let the children come to Me and do not forbid them for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” Our way to heaven is born out of simple faith, that of a child.

Once upon a time, I was this egotistical, self- reliant and uber independent woman of the ’90s. I came, I saw and I conquered. I believed in me, myself and I. God wasn’t included in my life. But now I know that He was with me even then and will always be with me. He never lets me go too far that His hands wouldn’t reach me. He found me and saved me…from me.

Now that I am His, dare I say it…
Yes, I will shout it from the rooftop, I am nothing without His love.20131104-194140.jpg I exist because He is. I live, I breath and I have my being in God alone. Galatians 2:20 is so true for me, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

So what’s your story?

Encouraged by GFA

“Thank you so much for your email. It is wonderful to hear how the Lord has been working in your life. Thank you for your years of faithful service to our Lord. I am happy to write a recommendation for you both:

Rizty and Nenita have served as volunteers for Gospel for Asia for over six years. Our ministry has been so blessed by their zeal for the Lord Jesus and their tireless efforts to be a voice for the unreached. Faithfully, they have worked to inform the body of Christ about two billion people living on earth who have yet to hear His name. They constantly sacrificed their weekends and vacation times to work a GFA booth or other event, for no earthly reward whatsoever. Rizty and Nenita don’t just claim to have a passion for lost souls, reaching the lost is truly all that they talk about and live for. Please consider helping them in this endeavor to reach their own people in the Philippines and teach God’s Word.

Dr. K. P. Yohannan

May the Lord continue to lead and guide you both in all you do. We are praying for you.

In His grace,

The Call

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, [even] to the end of the age.” Amen.
Matthew 28:19-20
