“Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh…Woe to you who are full now, for you shall be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep. “ – Luke 6:21,25.
I gave thanks to our Lord for pouring His love into the hearts of ministry workers around the world who work tirelessly to bring the gospel to the poor, especially the children, through such feeding and bible study programs. I thanked the Lord for a brief time of fellowship with the ministers of such a wonderful ministry in 2016 – Give-A-Child-A-Future Philippines Inc in Aug 2016 in my first trip to Bacolod, Philippines.
In the midst of feasting during the Chinese New Year (CNY) this year, it dawned on me that a lavish CNY dinner at any restaurant here might cost as much as several months’ budget of a feeding program of a small ministry in the poor countries. There and then, I was prompted by the Spirit of God to bless this feeding program ministry in Bacolod. Later, the ministry worker of this ministry informed me that she had run out of funds for 2 weeks and she was praying for God’s provision that morning. Thanks be to our Lord that JC’s Manifesto was the vessel used to answer this particular prayer. I shared this incident solely for the purpose of testifying about God’s goodness and timely provision whenever we ask our Heavenly Father for our daily needs.
Praying that JC’s Manifesto may be a vessel in this area in the longer term to share the gospel in word and in deeds in such a ministry, God willing.
