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?

Amidst the Storm

“Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, So that its waves are still.” Psalm 107:28-29

Letter between Nenita and Jackie of Harvest Christian Fellowship, Quezon City.

To Nenita:

Hi Ate(big sister),

I apologize for not replying sooner. We just got our electricity back yesterday and I’m now just using a prepaid internet card to access my emails.

From Monday night to Thursday evening, our place was submerged in floodwaters by 6 feet. Kuya(brother) Juni, his house was submerged by at least 8 or 10 feet. Yun van po nila(Their van) submerged din (also), which would require big repairs. There are 3-4 other families from church severely affected by the floods. We’re just now getting back on track after being trapped for so long. We are thankful the Lord protected everyone. I, for one, minimized my movement so as not to induce contractions, baka mapaanak po ako bigla (I might suddenly give birth). I am due to give birth anytime soon.

We’re glad safe po kayo dyan(you are safe where you are), Ate. Ano po ang(What is your) plan niyo moving forward, by saying di po muna kayo sa QC area (Too bad you cannot be in Quezon City for now)? Does that mean we won’t see you in church for the time being?

We agree with you it is the Lord who provides. Where He leads He will provide.

We continue to pray for the Lord’s leading regarding the Bible College.

God bless us all!
Armand and Jackie

To Jackie:

How is everyone, Jackie?

I am sorry to hear all this flood stories. We have been just praying over all the towns and cities affected by the calamity. I have sent reports to the church in the States so they can pray and ask God for mercy. I myself have been holed up in the school apartment due to the inclement weather for three days. I will do what I do best and that is to keep on interceding for the Church to be united and serve each other’s needs together and not separately.

It saddens me to see what I am seeing and experiencing for the first time. Man’s depravity does all these. We pray for God’s mercy and fresh outpouring of His Spirit that there will be revival in the country. Repentance…need to be realized by every believer.

I was in Biñan on Saturday. God had me start a Bible study for the family I have there. It is His plan again, an answered prayer. It was very nice to be used in this way. God is truly pleased. Two of my brother’s homes were ravaged waist deep by the flooded river and they didn’t even let me know. Please include them in your prayers too.

So there you have it, I will be driving to Biñan every Saturday to teach them how to fall in love with His Word. There are two photos in a following mail for you to see them and the woman, Aleli Sandoval who was saved by God’s love just when I arrived from Dasmariñas. It was a beautiful testimony of God’s appointment…her salvation and I got to lead her. Her story is for another day. Pray for her faith to grow, that her one year old baby Angelica who is hydro-cephalic will be healed and God will receive glory.

You are right my little sister…it is to trust His Word. He will build it… Also, it teaches me to re-start a life of utter dependence in His care and provision in all things. I know how it is to have much and how to have little. I am content where He has me, in Him. He is my All in all.

It is my desire to stay in QC for at least two weeks, even a month, and get to know all of you…but God has set up for me a camp where He is providing everything and not only that, I am being poured out here as an offering. God is using me in His ministry to the teachers and to the children. I will see you from time to time when the Lord permits.

I would hope to be there for the Pastors Conference so I can meet with P. John Michaels and the other pastors too…

I have another sister in the Lord who is..part of this Christian Montessori here in Dasmariñas. She has been asking me to help her…She has offered me this apartment which is in campus and in the beginning I was striving to get based close to QC but God had me pegged for this work even while we were fasting and praying for the Bible College two years ago. He is Sovereign. He is faithful. He knows what’s best.

When there is a struggle, when there is striving, we all know there’s flesh involved. Wanting to be in QC is my spirit mingled with flesh. God will work out the best time for us to huddle.

I am confident that He will be glorified. I hope you had a beautiful worship service and that our Father was pleased by the services all over the world. I had a wonderful time with the Jabez church family in Dasmariñas .

It brings me great joy to meet with the kapatiran (brethren) all over the world. This is the heart of missions. The Church as one big family of believers who do not know each other apart from the blood of Jesus that unites us and I get to meet them as the Holy Spirit directs me.

May you continue to grow in His grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and let me know when you get tired of my long letters…I hear a new typhoon is threatening the land again, Helen of Troy.

Dear Jesus rebuke the typhoon spirits that are thrown our way and bring peace and healing through a revival in this country that you caused us to love. Amen.

Greeted by Grace like Rain – Part 1

“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
Philippians 1:6

8/6/12

In the hustle and bustle of that rainy day, as I waited for my brother to pick me up, I was given the opportunity to bless such souls as these and others who came and went as their duty called on them. In the betweens of phone/ intercom / radio calls from tenants/ guests and their ins and outs to go here and there or check in and out of the condo-tel, I preached His Gospel.

At the end of 2.5 hours of interchange and solid presentation of man’s depravity and the difference between Law and Grace, the 10 commandments and the finished work of Jesus on the Cross, four souls made the commitment to surrender their lives and have Jesus save and rule them.

Praise the Lord. I took a picture of them and you saw it previously.

Ronnie, Ronald, Marvin and Margie. The girl in stripes is Erna and she just missed the confession part because she was called in and out during the hours involved. I had asked Marvin to harvest the soul for Jesus. The other little guy is Garen and he is 19 and claims he is born again. They were so eager to hear God’s Word, they all so listened intently and asked questions especially the tall dark guy, his name is Ronald, the front desk super.

There are some not in the picture…and have heard bits and pieces of the lesson….just prayed for those who got saved to witness to them and share their new faith…

Nenita

Continue to pray for the Philippines, that I may be given the continued boldness and opportunity to share the wondrous news that is the Gospel, that Jesus loves each one and He reigns forever and ever.

Unreached-Reached

But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
Matthew 9:36

In Metro-Manila, and in places the Gospel is shared in the Philippines, people receive it readily, but often, they are left without a church family to help them grow. They are left as orphans; they do not grow beyond their salvation. These we refer to as the “unreached-reached” people group.

Many do not get to experience the joy of sanctification and service, making them fair game to the false teachings that surround them.

This is the heart of My Father’s House Bible College, that our Filipino brethren may be duly equipped in the Word of God. That they would experience the joy of fully knowing Him, and making Him known. Just as we have known Him.

That these “unreached-reached” will be brought the whole counsel of God by native missionaries, and no longer be tossed to and fro by the false doctrines that run rampant in their midst. Be in prayer that the Lord will raise faithful Filipino church planters to come alongside His good work.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2Timothy 3:16-17

How to pray begins in praying.

The unreached-reached peoples of the Philippines await the gentle love of the Father in Jesus. Won’t you pray for their awakening…

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” 3John 1:2

  • Our health insurance is God. We ask that we be kept from all manners of physical attacks.
  • For our bones to be strong, our muscles to be flexible and our nerves to be steady and stable.
  • For our emotions to keep joyful, our minds to be peaceful, our ears to be alert, our eyes to stay bright, and for our hearts to be pumping at steady pace always.

“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy…” Jude 1:24

“…being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete [it] until the day of Jesus Christ…” Phil 1:6

That the Christ life may be exhibited in us, through us and for us in all things! That whatever we do in word and deed, it will be done in in the name of our Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him….EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Vision

The vision is to see the Philippines as a true Christian nation of devoted followers of Jesus Christ, the One True God… One Church…One Message.
“For God so loved, that He gave..” Jn3:16

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.”
Habakkuk 2:3
