She has been singing in JMCIM Children’s Choir since she was 7 or 8 years old – glory to God!

It was 2006, the year when I received partial healing from the Lord and I was able to travel to nearby provinces mostly to attend our Church’s crusades with my family. One Wednesday before noon, I received a text message from a sister in Christ who was then a full-time worker in one of the outreach stations of our Church in a faraway province. She requested me to call her. Right away, I was alarmed. I knew it was important. Urgent. She was one who saw dreams and visions living a life of regular prayer and fasting.

I called and she gently but clearly told me about her dream. She dreamed a bad dream that pointed to our then 5-year-old Hannah. She interpreted the dream that we might lose our Hannah, but said that there was something we could do to cast out the fulfilment of the bad dream. She counselled that my beloved husband Felix must offer prayer and fasting for at least 5 days. My knees instantly turned to jelly. But my husband and I prayed incessantly.

The following day, Thursday, my husband didn’t waste time to go to the Fasting House in Pampanga to offer prayer and fasting.

Friday, while he was still in the fasting house, Hannah, my then caregiver Maricris, Jho (Hannah’s nanny),  and I followed him there, our company driver driving us. We stayed in a nearby hotel because we were not on fast, but we went to the chapel of the fasting house to join in the praise and worship morning and evening and attend the Friday overnight service. We stayed in Pampanga until after Sunday service.

We left after that, leaving my husband behind because he wasn’t finished yet with his fasting.

Monday afternoon, Hannah developed a slight fever and colds. After dinner, her fever went up. Up into the night, her fever stayed. Around 10 at night, she started to hallucinate. She would panic and clutch at me in utter fear. She saw demons in the room, on the bed, everywhere. Her face was contorted with horror. In all my adult life, it was my first time to witness a little child gripped with so much fear. She would cry out, “They are here again! They are so many! Their teeth are very long and sharp. They are scary monsters! They are going to eat me! Help me, Mom! They say they will eat me! They are on the bed! They are all crawling!” And on it went.

She was red like a crab cooking  because of her burning fever and at times, perspiration drenched her hair. We (Maricris, Jho, and me) praised and prayed non-stop. Hannah would then collapse on the bed and have a fitful sleep, but after a while, she would wake up with the scary hallucinations again. I would straddle her and Bible in my hand, I would wave it while casting out the demons with all my might in the powerful name of Jesus.

A thought flashed in my mind. If we weren’t born-again Christians yet, serving the Lord in JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY, and I was well enough to drive, I would have bundled her up in a blanket and brought her to the nearest hospital. But my thoughts and desires then were not toward the hospital but toward the only Savior and Healer, the Lord Jesus Christ. Many people, including Christians from other sects, would persecute me, us, for our decision to completely trust in God. It is our faith.

My husband wasn’t with us, he was in the Fasting House offering up prayer and fasting, and that was the best place he could be at that hour. I did not even inform him.

After on-and-off wrestling with the demons through praising, praying, and casting out, Jho said, “Ate, we can’t do this on our own. Let’s call for prayer warriors from the Pastoral House.” It was late, but the Pastoral House was open 24/7. I called and requested for workers to come. My voice was urgent.

After less than an hour, two workers arrived with a guitar. They immediately knelt beside the bed, prayed, then began praising and worshiping, entreating God for His mercy. We sang along with them. After over half an hour, they closed with another prayer, then they laid their hands on my daughter who was then sound asleep, very hot and cheeks flushed, casting out the demons of sickness.

I requested the workers to stay for the night for we were alone. They hesitated for a while but I was insistent. They slept in the guest room. I then lay beside Hannah and succumbed to much-needed sleep.

Hannah and I almost simultaneously woke up the next morning. I was awakened by the sound of praise and worship and guitar playing. It sounded like it was far away but it drifted to me and I slowly opened my eyes. Hannah opened her eyes, too. Her normal color had returned. She smiled at me. I touched her forehead, her fever was gone. I checked the time. I couldn’t believe it was near noon! My daughter and I slept so soundly and she was completely healed!

“Mom, I’m thirsty,” Hannah said. I told her to wait as I tell someone to bring her water. But she bounded out of bed, looked for her slippers, and told me, “I’ll go to the kitchen myself, Mom.”

“Are you sure?” I asked, concern in my voice.

“Yes, Mom, I’m fine,” she answered me reassuringly and then left the room. She walked out as if nothing happened the night before!

When my husband arrived from the Fasting House in Pampanga, he didn’t have a clue as to what happened for he found us smiling happily. And grateful.

ALL THE GLORY, HONOR, PRAISE, AND THANKSGIVING BELONG TO THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS – OUR DEAREST LORD JESUS CHRIST!

The Lord Lifts Up the Lowly: The Testimony of Bro. Edward Tan

Bro. Edward Tan testifying in the pulpit, Dec. 2012 at Amoranto Stadium, Quezon city.

Bro. Edward Tan testifying in the pulpit, Dec. 2012 at Amoranto Stadium, Quezon city.

Here’s a testimony that would bring us encouragement and strengthen our faith as we meet the new year.

Bro. Edward Tan grew up in a wealthy Filipino-Chinese family. Never in his wildest imaginations did he think that there would come a day that all the affluence would disappear in the blink of an eye. But indeed, fate would have it that their family’s business went bankrupt and they lost everything including their home.

There were nights that Bro. Edward went home and find his siblings gone one by one, then he would find them sleeping in the streets. Gradually, his family broke apart and his siblings each went on his/her own way. Bro. Edward was so depressed he wanted to kill himself. He seriously planned to end his life, but when he was about to carry it out, he heard a voice speak, “Don’t do it. I love you.” Bro. Edward didn’t see anyone and he couldn’t understand what it meant. But this did stop him from taking his own life.

Bro. Edward stayed in Luneta Park, forlorn. One day, he was walking around the vicinity of the park destitute, until he reached Mehan Garden. He saw the worship service of JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY being held openly there. He stopped in his tracks, for, according to his testimony, he had nowhere to go anyway. He listened and observed and while he did so, he was amazed by what he saw: the beloved brethren were clothed in garments projecting holiness, singing and worshiping the Lord with all their hearts, minds, and souls. When the beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde E. Almeda stood up for the altar call, inviting all those who are lost to come and receive the Lord Jesus Christ, Bro. Edward thought, “Is this what it means by the voice I heard?”

Bro. Edward felt the love he was longing for. That night, he received the Lord Jesus Christ as His Savior and was baptized in water in His name.

He left the place with peace and joy in his heart for the first time in years. About two days after having received the Lord, he was walking again around Manila not really knowing where to go. But the Lord had set the cycle of blessings on his life so that on this particular day, he met his old classmate. The classmate was shocked to learn about Bro. Edward’s family’s misfortune. He invited Bro. Edward to their home in Corinthian Gardens in Pasig City, gave him clothing, and a job in one of their family’s gas stations.

Bro. Edward was so glad and his faith in God was all the more strengthened. He believed that God had finally started to bless him. When he received his very first salary, and although he wanted so much to buy the food that he was craving for, he gave it all to the Lord as his first fruits offering. He wanted to honor Him with it.

Later on, Bro. Edward desired to have another job and he prayed earnestly for it. He saw an ad in the newspaper and he wanted so much to have that job. The only problem was, this big multinational company was looking for applicants that were graduates of Ateneo, La Salle and UP. He didn’t even finish second year college and not in one of those schools. But, he had great faith in God, believing that He would be the One who would give him this job. So, by faith in Jesus’ name, he proceeded to apply.

He testifies that when he walked into the room, the other applicants who were graduates from the three reputable schools, looked at him from head to toe. They whispered to each other and couldn’t hide their amusement. They laughed at him. There were seven levels of  interviews in all, through different managers and executive officers. Even the first interviewer was surprised to see him and asked if he knew the requirements. Bro. Edward told him the truth about himself, and he also professed his faith in Jesus Christ. He started to share God’s miracles and mighty deeds in the Church. The interview turned out to be a sharing of Gods’ testimonies.

At the end of the first interview, the manager told Bro. Edward that he passed it and he was going to the next level. And so it was, until Bro. Edward completed all seven levels of interview, and he got the job he was desiring for.

At this point, I remember King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, how God humbled him and showed him that He reigns over all the earth, frustrates the schemes of men, and derides their worldly wisdom. Meditate on the following:

For His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
And His kingdom is from generation to generation.
35 All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing;
He does according to His will in the army of heaven
And among the inhabitants of the earth.
No one can restrain His hand
Or say to Him, “What have You done?” (Dan. 4:34-35, emphasis added)

Bro. Edward continues to serve the Lord faithfully to this day.

Halleluiah! To God be the glory!

Healing Miracles: Healed of Stomach Disease and Slipped Disc

Beloved Sis. Nitz de Guia at JMCIM Worship Service, Amoranto Stadium, Quezon City, Phils., Oct. 2011.

Before Sister Nitz de Guia surrendered her life to the Lord Jesus, she was a nurse in a big government hospital. Just after she and her beloved husband, Brother Lito, were married and Sis. Nitz became pregnant with their first child, she started to be sick. While two months pregnant, she underwent appendectomy. On that same year, she delivered her baby via caesarian section.

Immediately after this, she underwent exploratory laparotomy due to abdominal intussusception. Not long afterwards, she again suffered stomach pain that she was immediately brought to the hospital. While doctors attended to her, her bel. husband went home for a while to take a shower and get some change of clothes. When he returned, Sis. Nitz lay in bed with several instruments already attached to her. She was to be operated again for H. mole (Hydatidiform mole).

Bro. Lito, feeling so dejected because of their miserable situation, just looked out the window, tears streaming down his face. At one point during this emergency surgical procedure, Bro. Lito was asked to choose between his bel. wife or their unborn baby. It was a difficult and painful decision in which he chose his wife, but God was so merciful to save their baby also and he lived. 

One of their children suffered from bronchial asthma from birth, due maybe to Sis. Nitz’ major surgery while pregnant.

After all her ordeal, the family had to deal also with the frequent asthma attacks of their child, having to bring him to the hospital often. Soon, Sis. Nitz gave up her work in the hospital as a nurse, but she was advised by her doctor to come for check-ups every two weeks. She was told that her disease may lead to cancer if not properly treated.   

But about this time, a neighbor shared to them the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and they were brought to the worship service of the JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY. Their whole family willingly received the Lord Jesus and were baptized in water in His name.

Their child with asthma soon received complete healing and never suffered an attack again. Also, Sis. Nitz no longer returned to the hospital for her regular check-up, but focused on serving the Lord with her bel. husband. She no longer suffered from her disease as she claimed complete healing.

During those times, Bro. Lito was just an ordinary bank employee. But as they continued to serve the Lord faithfully and fervently, they were tremendously blessed financially and materially. They now own and manage a multi-million plastics company.

Over a decade of blissfully serving the Lord, their faith was tried. Sis. Nitz suffered a slipped (herniated) disc in the lumbar part of her spine. Because of this, she could no longer walk and do any work, not to mention the excruciating pain that she had to suffer night and day. Her legs and arms suffered atrophy, and she needed a wheelchair to go from one place to another.

She testifies that the pain was almost unbearable. She had to change position every hour, and she needed the assistance of her bel. husband to do so. They were both losing much-needed sleep and rest.

When the family went to the U.S. for a vacation, Sis. Nitz was on a wheelchair. Her relatives there offered to pay for all her surgery expenses, only that she had to undergo immediate operation to fix her spine. If not, her doctor warned her that she could become permanently paralyzed.

But the couple rejected surgery as an option and chose to put their complete trust in the Lord Jesus, that He would be the One to heal Sis. Nitz as He had done the first time and to their child. And so, they continued to serve the Lord, never missing a service, despite Sis. Nitz’ difficult condition.

 After two years, she received complete healing, and her legs and arms went back to normal. Now, as their thanksgiving vow, Bro. Lito and Sis. Nitz support and attend crusades of the Church throughout the country. Whatever time of day or night, through whatever weather condition, they would be driving and racing to go to support the Lord’s crusades, even in far-flung and rebel-infested barangays (barrios) and provinces.

Halleluiah! To God be the glory!

A Restored Life: The Testimony of Bro. Eric Fajardo

Bro. SPO1 Eric Fajardo at the JMCIM worship service, Amoranto Stadium, April, 2011.

Before he came to know the Lord Jesus Christ, Brother SPO1 Eric Fajardo was a corrupt policeman. He testifies that he was involved in all kinds of evil deeds. He put up many kinds of gambling in their town, including jueteng and cockfighting. His townmates were too afraid and powerless to stop him, for he was, indeed, very powerful in their place. He also indulged in many worldly pleasures and lived like there was no end to his luck.

But one day, tragedy struck. He was invited to a town celebration where he was the guest of honor. He wanted his family to witness this important event so he brought along his wife and child. He thought it was another night of feasting where he would be honored. But before he could set foot on stage, the place was bombed and the crowd was fired at indiscriminately. When the smoke had subsided and Bro. Eric could see clearly, he saw his wife and child sprawled on the ground, blooded and lifeless.

The world came crashing down on him. In one day, the people dearest to him were taken away from him leaving only a deep hatred in his heart and a great desire to exact revenge to the perpetrators.

With fire and determination burning in his soul, he forsook all and traveled to Manila to hunt down the people responsible for the deaths of his family. But while he searched, it was the Lord Jesus that he found, or to put it more accurately, Jesus found him.

Bro. Eric was invited to the worship service of the JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY. He accepted the invitation and gladly went, for while he lusted for revenge, he also desperately wanted peace in his life.

Bro. Eric, lost, hurting, and vengeful, was finally captured by the Lord as he dropped to his knees and humbled himself to Him. For the first time in his life, he worshiped Him in truth and wept unabashedly, tears pouring out freely. He finally felt all the burden, hatred, and grief lifted up. His burning anger at the killers of his wife and child and the deep sorrow he carried were taken away by the merciful Savior and peace slowly crept into his heart. His soul has finally found rest. 

Bro. Eric accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized in water in His name.

He forsook all his plans for revenge and began to walk with the Lord and live a new life.

Before this, he also used to suffer from acute stomach ulcer and enlargement of the heart because of his many vices. But when he trusted completely in the Lord and surrendered his life to Him – vowing that he will serve Him all his life – he was totally healed of these diseases.

Later on, he prayed to the Lord to give him a new wife, someone he could spend the rest of his life with. The Lord answered his prayer and also blessed them with a child.

Now, Bro. Eric has a whole new life. He is gladly serving the Lord with his family. God restored all he had lost, and more.

Halleluia! To God be the glory!

The Mermaid: The Story and Testimony of Bro. Jimmy Tubis

Bro. Jimmy Tubis at the worship service of San Pedro, Laguna Outreach, February 2011.

Bro. Jimmy grew up being a sissy. At age 12, all his friends were girls. As he grew older, he became an outright gay. He loved going out at nights and reveling in disco houses with his gay friends. He learned to smoke marijuana and later on became a pimp in a “beerhouse”. Every night, he went out to do this job and at the same time to indulge in his vices.

One night, he joined a beauty contest for gays in an adjacent town. After the pageant, he and his gay friends went to a disco house to celebrate. It so happened that at the same night, his “kuya” (older brother) and his friends went out, too, and entered the same disco house.

Bro. Jimmy couldn’t be recognized for he was wearing a complete girl ensemble from head to toe. It didn’t take long and his older brother (not recognizing him at all) and his friends came to their table and they asked Bro. Jimmy’s friends (who were all wearing girl’s clothing complete with makeup) to dance, leaving Bro. Jimmy and his older brother at the table. Later on, his “kuya” asked him to dance, too.

They “got to know each other”. Bro. Jimmy’s name was Shellylou, a name he often used when joining gay pageants. Unfortunately, his older brother “fell in love” with Shellylou.

The next morning, Bro. Jimmy asked his brother about his night in town, and his brother told him about meeting a “girl” named Shellylou and how he had fallen for “her” and he was going to look for “her” house.

Too scared to let the problem become worse, Bro. Jimmy confessed to his “kuya” that he was Shellylou. His “kuya” was so angry he beat Bro. Jimmy black and blue, pouring out all his fury and frustration why his younger brother became hopelessly gay.

Bro. Jimmy continued to go out every night, returning home only at the break of day. When he arrived home one morning, his father told him to fetch water and fill up the drum, which he did. When the drum was full, his father submerged him into the water and after a few moments, he lifted up Bro. Jimmy’s head and asked him whether he was a girl or a boy. Bro Jimmy answered that he was a girl (for that was what he really felt). Again, his father submerged him into the water for a longer time and when he lifted up his head, he asked the same question, and Bro. Jimmy answered the same. On the third time, his father was trying to drown him just to make him be a man. When he lifted Bro. Jimmy’s head, he asked the same question, “Lalake ka ba o babae? (Are you a girl or a boy?)”, to which Bro. Jimmy answered, “Sirena! (mermaid!)”

His father told him to leave their house. They couldn’t accept him as he was.

Bro. Jimmy left their home. This was in 1983. He boarded a ship bound for Manila (their family lived in Visayas) although he didn’t have money. He pleaded to the ship’s officer and he was allowed to sail even without a ticket, but he had to endure the trip without food.

Bro. Jimmy tried to look for their relatives in Manila. Later on, he applied as a nanny (for he was still wearing girl’s clothes and long hair) to a Christian family. When the mother found out that he was actually a boy, instead of dismissing him, she brought him to the worship service of the JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY.

Bro. Jimmy accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized in His name.

Slowly, Bro. Jimmy’s life changed.

After four years, he and his “kuya” (brother) met again in 1987, and that was during the JMCIM crusade in Luneta Park, Manila. His “kuya” was surprised to see him changed, decently clothed as a man. He and his older brother joyfully reconciled.

Later on, Bro. Jimmy and his father also reconciled, forgiving each other for what each had done.

Bro. Jimmy became a pastoral worker of JMCIM and he continues to serve the Lord faithfully to this day.

Halleluia! To God be the glory!

God Raised Her Son

Sis. Alona Giducos testifying at the pulpit during the JMCIM 36th Church Anniversary, Feb. 13, 2011

In 1995, Sis. Alona Giducos was desperate. She had separated from her husband and she and her husband had divided their four children equally between them. She didn’t want it to end up like that, but there wasn’t anything she could do to save their marriage. Her husband was a drug addict and a drunkard.

She was so unhappy with her life, terribly missing her two children that were with her husband. Together with her two children that were with her, she decided to go home to Olongapo City to her mother’s house.

There she learned that her mother had been saved. Her mother had accepted the Lord Jesus Christ in her life and was faithfully serving Him. She shared the Gospel to Sis. Alona and invited her to the worship service of the JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY.

Sis. Alona was desperately looking for peace in her life, she hoped that this would be the answer to her prayers. She accepted the Lord Jesus Christ in her life as her Lord and Savior and later on, was baptized in water in His name.

Immediately, Sis. Alona received the precious peace that she had been desiring. After a month of fervently attending worship services, she and her husband reconciled and their family was restored. Her husband’s life was changed completely and their whole family began to serve the Lord faithfully.

The following year, Sis. Alona conceived and gave birth to their fifth child, a son she named Isaac. She didn’t know then that God would use this child to show her His great miracles.

A month after baby Isaac turned one-year-old, he got sick of measles. Having had no vaccine, the baby suffered from the illness greatly. For three weeks he had fever and convulsions. Sis. Alona prayed hard everyday, laying her hands on him every after praise and prayer, but the child wasn’t getting better.

One day after prayer, Sis. Alona decided to bring her child to the Philippine Children’s Medical Center. The doctors there acted quickly to save Isaac, for his eyes had rolled back in his head and he was unmoving. They tried hard to revive him, but he didn’t make any movement or showed any reaction.

Sis. Alona prayed and surendered everything to the Lord. She vowed that she would continue to serve Him faithfully no matter what happens to her son. It was then that her child made a movement and began to breathe normally.

Because of this, the doctors in the hospital, and even the janitors, called Isaac a “miracle baby”, for so he really was.

But after several neurological tests, the doctors found out that Isaac had sustained severe brain damage due to his prolonged fever. Because of this, he became blind (totally no vision), deaf (and mute because of this) and lame. He became a vegetable. He also forgot how to suck his milk bottle. He was fed in the hospital via a feeding tube.

Sis. Alona didn’t know what to do, she was crying in helplessness. (During all this time, her beloved husband and their other four grown children continued to serve the Lord, diligently attending services and praying and begging Him to heal Isaac).

Sis. Alona remembered all the teachings of the beloved Honorable Pastor, Evangelist Wilde E. Almeda, to have FULL FAITH in the Lord and never doubt. The following mid-week service, she attended service and brought with her a picture of Isaac. She approached the beloved Hon. Pastor Wilde E. Almeda and he prayed over Isaac’s picture.

The next day, while she was praying beside Isaac’s bed in the hospital, she heard a voice say, “Your sons’ brain damage has been healed.”

And so it was, that Isaac began to respond and to feed on his milk bottle. When they left the hospital, he was still blind, deaf and lame, but it didn’t take long and he gradually turned back to normal and fully recovered – his vision, speech, hearing and walking.

When Isaac was a little older, he joined the Children’s Choir and sang for the Lord for many years. Now he’s fifteen-years-old and has no traces of his childhood illness whatsoever.

Sis. Alona and her whole family continue to serve the Lord faithfully to this day.

Halleluia! To God be the glory!

Healing and Restoration

Sis. Anna Marie de Luna at Amoranto Stadium, February 2011.

Sister Anna Marie de Luna had no other desire in life but to have a happy family. Hers was everything but. She married a man her loved ones were strongly against. Her husband, a few years her junior, was involved in many vices, two of which were drugs and women. In Sis. Anna’s words, “If one would drape a skirt around an electric post, he would chase it and desire it (the skirted post!).”

Indeed, Sis. Anna suffered greatly emotionally. Even when their first baby was born, her husband, Bro. Bob, didn’t change. He continued to indulge in his vices, taking drugs and chasing women, while Sis. Anna worked for a living. She tried hard to hide her situation from her parents, showing a facade that all was well.

During the days that Bro. Bob was out for long hours or many days, Sis. Anna would cry out to the Lord, asking Him why her life was so miserable. She would pray and cry and beg the Lord to change her husband and grant her a happy family.

But Sis. Anna’s problem wasn’t just her husband during those days. She was also suffering from diabetes. One day her leg was bitten by a mosquito. She scratched it and it became an open wound. The wound grew bigger until her leg became gangrened. It was so for many months. The doctor advised her that it might be amputated.

Sis. Anna became hopeless. Her husband with another woman and her leg to be amputated, she felt like the world was crumbling down on her.  She didn’t want her leg to be amputated, for then, she believed that her husband would leave her completely.

But one day, Bro. Bob came home and Sis. Anna noticed that he seemed quiet and in deep thought. He started playing a tape with the Tagalog Christian song “Tupang Ligaw” (Lost Sheep). He would listen to it intently everyday.

One day, Bro. Bob asked Sis. Anna to accompany him to the worship service of the JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY. (It turned out that Bro. Bob had met somebody, a born-again Christian, who had been diligently sharing to him the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ). Sis. Anna didn’t hesitate. She and Bro. Bob went to the worship service together.

When they arrived, Sis. Anna was amazed at the sight she saw – brethren decently dressed in mostly-white, intently and fervently worshiping the Lord. She wept. She felt like she was coming home – to the waiting arms of her Savior. Slowly, she felt the heaviness in her heart lifted. She prayed and made a vow, that she would serve the Lord all her life if only the Lord Jesus would change her husband and restore their marriage and family. She didn’t even ask to be healed of her diabetes and her gangrened leg.

Sis. Anna and Bro. Bob received the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and were baptized in water in His name.

Miraculously, Bro. Bob’s life was changed instantly. He became a good, loving and faithful husband and a responsible father.

One day, he tried smoking dope, but it made him nauseous and he threw up. It was then that he proved that the Lord had removed it from him for good.

Gradually, Sis. Anna received healing of her leg and of her diabetes. It’s been over 20 years now that she is free from the disease.

She and Bro. Bob, together with their children, continue to serve the Lord faithfully to this day. Sis. Anna is a leader of Adults Choir, Bro. Bob is a preacher, while their children sing in different choirs. Ever since they came to know and serve the Lord, joy resided in their hearts and in their home.

Halleluia! To God be the glory!
