Dear Brethren and Friends,

Welcome to the Filipino Bible Fellowship!

Praying for a blessed New Year to all! May our good and gracious Lord grant us a bountiful spiritual harvest this year. We start our year with the baptism of new believers. Let this be the beginning of more souls to be saved. The Lord is so faithful in answering our prayers for more Filipinos to come to the truth. May we not be lazy and fearful to testify for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Proverbs 11:30 tells us, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” Let us be wise and win souls for Christ! – Bro Jose

Testimony of Grecil Alayon

I am Grecil Alayon from Victoria City, Negros Occidental. Before I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour, my free time was always spent hanging out with friends and there was less time for my spiritual life. Although I am always thankful for the daily blessings that God has given me, I never showed interest in reading the Bible and knowing God’s Word. I must admit that there was something missing in my life. When I started going to Church and studying God’s Word, I realized a lot of things. I started letting go of some habits that I know are not pleasant before God’s eyes. I even lost interest in going out. I preferred to spend time alone trying to understand His words. Accepting Jesus as my Saviour gave me the courage to continue on with my life. This renewed my life to become a better person. I now surrender everything to Him. I am holding on to Jesus and truly believing on God’s promises.

Testimony of Maria Luisa Ordoño

I am Maria Luisa Ordoño from Bagasa, Bago Gallera, Davao City. The memory of my very first day in True Life Bible-Presbyterian Church – Filipino Bible Fellowship is still clear in my mind. Back then, I was filled with anger and fear. I was anxious because I had put my life at stake. I was so fearless then with the words that came out of my mouth. I was hopeless and down. As soon as I heard the words of the Lord from the pastor’s sermon, I felt relieved.

God touched my heart in a mysterious way. This is my story of how God manifested Himself in my soul, how reflections and realizations came unto me, and how God changed my life.

During the catechism classes, my doubts were answered, my fears were eased, and my mind became calm. I am so grateful that God really made ways for me to follow Him. My heart is full of gratitude every time I hear the words of the Lord. I am learning a lot of things about Him and how great He is.

When I was still an unbeliever, I was so proud of myself. Sometimes I forgot to thank Him for my life. I felt tired to go to church to glorify Him. I was not keeping the Ten Commandments. These are just some of the unrighteous ways I practiced back then. However, my life turned a different way. I never thought I could be this way. I am now a person who is far too different from that kind of person I was. How great God is for He works in me not to be perfect but to be a person who knows that the purpose of my life is to fulfil His will! He is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. He owns me and He saved me from my sins.

I was a devoted Roman Catholic and so is my whole family. We idolized images, saints, statues and other representations. I realize now that these are against what are written in the Bible. These contradict the Word of the Lord. God is really leading me, for John 4:24 states that we must worship Him in spirit and in truth. I feel that it is my important obligation to share the words of the truth to my family to enlighten them towards the true path of Christianity. It is heart-breaking to think that through true repentance and believing in our Lord Jesus Christ I am now saved from my sins, but my family does not know yet. I am not perfect in teaching the people about the word of the Lord but I will definitely share this truth to them for I know that the Holy Spirit will pour His wisdom upon me, so that the words from my mouth will not be from me but from Him. With this regards, I am glad and thankful to become God’s instrument to lead other people to believe in Him.

Testimony of Gregonia Garcia

I am Gregonia Garcia from Maunong, Calamba City, Laguna. Both of my parents are Roman Catholics. I grew up worshipping idols. We worship and pray according to how we were brought up. Although we seldom go together to church, we lived relatively in peace despite the hardships. We believed in our hearts that there is a God who will always help us in our lives. Seldom did my father and mother go to church but we learned from them how to live with kindness, patience, how to care for others and help those who are in need. We believed the Lord Jesus Christ died to save mankind from sin. In that way only we had knowledge because we did not know what is true salvation and the truth. We lacked understanding and we do not know what to do in order to be saved from sin.

It was in year 1990 that I had my own family. It was in this time that I experienced how to submit and strive to support my own family. In spite of the sufferings and trials that I experienced, I was tested by God on my patience in the trials that I went through in my life. Life was hard as we had 4 children to take care and send to school. It was in year 2011 that I started to apply for work abroad as a domestic helper. In year 2012, fortunately I came to Singapore. It was here that I felt so much tiredness of the body, stress in mind and depressed emotion as I was away from my whole family. Seven years passed by and I experienced pure hardships of heart and mind that I felt depressed and always stressed. In year 2018, I started thinking that I wanted to join a Bible study, a Catholic Bible Study. But some days later, there were young students from the Far Eastern Bible College (FEBC) evangelizing and sharing the Gospel.They asked me if I can talk to them though I was busy with my work. I did not take them for granted but joined them by their invitation.

It was in the end of 2018 that I started joining Filipino Bible Fellowship, and for the first time I had the chance to join the Fellowship. I heard the good news of the Lord where my feelings were lightened. I thank the Lord for His help and the help of those people whom He used so that I might be drawn closer fully, to ask for forgiveness and repented of my sins.

It is indeed true that all things that happen in our lives always have a reason. I believe that everything happened according to God’s plan in my life. I am thankful to God that I came to know the truth and the right way in order to be saved from my sins and that I may be drawn closer to Him as my Lord and Jesus Christ. I truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ Who died because of our sins. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the only Saviour of mankind. I want to know more about Him without any persuasions from other people. I just follow the desires of my innermost feeling, because only in Him I can trust all that happens in my life for He will not leave me.

And now, I have found peace in Him, and I have serenity in my heart and mind. I believe that all of the trials that I will experience, He will not give to me if I am not able to bear them. He wants us to learn from our mistakes. Now I am ready to face the future, because I know every time I have difficult times, He is always there to guide. I am thankful to God that until now I still continue to attend the fellowship in order to be with those people who have become part of my life. I pray to the Lord that He will help my husband and my children together with my loved ones to have spiritual life and to believe in the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
