Confessions of a missionary

This is hard to say… I may not be the best missionary or preacher in the world. I maybe mocked, yelled at, ridiculed by other people including some ministers(what a shame). I may have people think that I’m crazy for leaving my country without having a spouse. It doesn’t concern me that you would lie, slander, yell or maybe one day end my life. Jesus was mocked, yelled, spit on and beaten then finally put on the cross by religious leaders. But, you know I didn’t get on that airplane to leave my country alone! I have God walking with me and leading me by His Holy Spirit! I KNOW HIM! I am not out of my mind maybe just out of yours!

I’d rather preach truth than butter you up with sweet words. I’m a missionary of action and despise it when I see other false preachers who are only about pictures to collect money from supporters. That is why I have been neglecting photos unless others desire to take them on my behalf. “Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.” 2 Cor 2:17 I have been exposed to this corruption far more this term. Thank God my supporters have seen me minister with the power of God and know that He truly does GUIDE me, because I KNOW GOD!

After God called me; I sold all my possessions in 3 months and left for the Philippines with enough money to live for 2 months. After my money ran out God gave me a dream of exactly how much money would come in, then it came to pass. He is my provider and He is the one who supplies my supporters and guides their hearts to give. My trust is in Immanuel because I KNOW GOD!

All in all it is God who has done everything in this ministry. It’s really not my ministry. I feel like I’m just along for the ride. It is Him who gave me this strong convictions against sin. Jesus is my example in how to destroy the works of the enemy. I pray always to see things as He does. Last night, God gave me the words to preach at Pastor Emer Victorious‘s church. I didn’t even get the chance to look at my sermon notes. I saw victory for everyone in that church as the Gospel was preached with power and wisdom. Everyone who had serious health issues got healed by a living God last night. Hearts, backs, organs, joints, and legs were completely healed. Not even one walked away not healed by Jesus, and even if they did; I’d rather them blame my prayers and not God. As I know it’s my Father’s will to heal. It is this that I boast about. I boast that I KNOW GOD! HE is WALKING with ME! He is LEADING and TEACHING me. Don’t you want to KNOW HIM like THIS? It’s YOUR DECISION and no one ELSE’S.

Casting Out Demons on Christmas Eve

Happy New Year! May this be the year that God blesses you abundantly in every area of your life, as we consecrate ourselves completely to Him. I have some amazing events and miracles to share! I had the privilege of being a groomsmen in a wedding with the church I helped to plant. It was a wonderful wedding in Iloilo Island and expecting great things from that couple! Then a few days after I traveled to Cebu Island to have Christmas with my old friends. I miss my family and friends in America very much. But it made this lonely missionary happy to be with old friends from my first missionary term.
Christmas eve seemed pretty normal hanging out with some old friends at YWAM. Then it all changed as I went to pray for somebody with back and knee pain. He begins to manifest signs of a spiritual attack. Pain would completely leave then come right back a few minutes later.  This isn’t the first time I’ve seen pain come and go, or even move from the knee to the stomach. I used to not understand this even after seeing thousands healed. God revealed to me in Scriptures, as did those great ministers who operated in many miracles before my time.  The understanding given to me a couple years ago was that they haven’t consecrated themselves wholly to God. To be consecrated is to be set apart for God.
This gentleman did get delivered from this as far as I know. He was vomiting only while we were praying for him. God does not leave us as orphans, but has given us His Holy Spirit! “Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.” John 5:14 Attacks from the demons will not prevail if we trust and believe God. This isn’t something that we should fear, or even ignore like it doesn’t exist. It is real and we are on the winning side! God is stronger and our part is easy. Trust Him with your body, family, thoughts, future and finances just as you do with your soul! It’s easy to trust God with our soul as we can’t see or touch it. But what about those other things that we spend so much time making plans for?
I preached two services Christmas morning in Cebu. All glory belongs to God as I witnessed Him heal about 30 people! Not one person walked away without being touched and healed by God! While I was at that big church, I met an old friend who I prayed for. This woman had colon cancer and wasn’t given much hope. But God healed her years ago, and now 5 years later she is still healed! New Years Eve was not much different from this. I preached another sermon given by God and witnessed another 15 people healed.  Recently three different people who had cancer got healed, but waiting to hear the doctor’s report. All I know is the one, who couldn’t walk for months, is now able to walk! The others ones with cancer no longer have pain in their bodies.! What an amazing year that God has in store for them this 2017!

This is our Heavenly Father, who desires to heal us more than we desire to be healed. He wants to bless you more than you want to be blessed. I know everybody is making plans for their New Years resolutions, but let’s not forget God’s plans for our lives. His ways are higher than our ways. He is a good good Father, who is holy and perfect in every way. He is not waiting for you to make a mistake, to punish you. He is waiting for you to consecrate every area of your life, so He has permission to come and restore every area! I believe this is your year of blessing! ‘May you prosper as your soul prospers.’ ‘You will be the head and not the tail, the lender and not the borrower.’ Those are Scriptures and promises of the Holy Bible that I pray over you. For it is a book of both blessings and cursings. Gods words don’t fail, and neither does His love and forgiveness towards us. To our New Year filled with His amazing wonder and glory! God bless you!

Because they haven’t heard,
