MY EXPERIENCE – MEETING CHURCH OF GOD PHILIPPINES
FIRST TIME MEETING CHURCH OF GOD PHILIPPINES
With Church of God Philippines, I want to share many amazing experiences. Long time ago, I remember the moment that I had met Church of God Philippines first time. At that time I was a university student.
My school is located in Quezon city. It is really convenient place. Anyway, I’m gonna tell you about when i visited University of Manila which my boyfriend went to. When I was waiting for my boy friend, someone asked me whether I had time or not very politely. She wanted to preach me with the Bible. I was a little embarrassed. In addition, frankly speaking, I’m not interested in religion at all. But, I thought they were pretty nice and I decided to share a moment. Actually, I couldn’t remember what we talked. Just I remembered they said “We are from Church of God Philippines”. I thought it was first time when I met a member of Church of God Philippines.
MEETING CHURCH OF GOD PHILIPPINES IN MY UNIVERSITY
A few weeks later, I returned to Quezon city before new semester started. I was proud of my university, University of the Philippines Diliman which ranking is the top of Philippines. The picture is my university. But, the most amazing thing is I met Church of God Philippines again! They were Church of God in Quezon city. All of them were our school students.
Many students was preaching there. They asked whether I knew Heavenly Mother or not. Of course, not. Well… As I listened to it, It was really make sense! So I thought someday I would go Church of God Philippines to know more about her.
MEETING CHURCH OF GOD AGAIN WHILE TRAVELING IN THE USA
But I became terribly busy with my school. I could stand it because of my summer vacation at Houston in USA where my cousin lives. I was so excited to go there dreaming go to NASA. I spent few weeks there and had a really good time. Of course, I visited NASA and holocaust museum. I went to University of Houston which my cousin went to. It was so big and there are many squirrels. When I looked around there, I found the familiar figures. Someone preached earnestly to man. At the moment I just passed them, I heard “Church of God”. I was very curious and waited them to finish their talking. I went up to them and asked “Are you from Church of God?”. They said “Yes, our church is worldwide. You can meet our church member everywhere.” How amazing it was! I met Church of God member again in Houston!
BEAUTIFUL CHURCH OF GOD PHILIPPINES
My story is not finished yet. I met church of God member again in Manila! I saw the placard “3200th Clean-up Drive @ Manila bay“. Wow, how wonderful! As you know, there is a lot of rubbish in Philippines and no one cleans up voluntarily. Manila Bay is even worse though. They cleaned there with a very bright smile even though the place is tough for them. They were so wonderful. So I decided to go there and asked where church of God is. It was quite near, so I followed them. My first impression of the church was very beautiful and shiny.
After that, I went to the church several times and now I’m 80%+ sure about this church. They’re really good.
