When You Give God Your All

keevee_soloKathleya de Vera, or Keevee, grew up, in her words, “a good friend, a kind-hearted sister, and an obedient daughter.” In her senior year in high school, two campus missionaries from Victory Dagupan reached out to her, and invited her to a youth service. It was there that she had a personal encounter with God. However, she struggled with change. “(God wanted me) to let go of my selfishness and let him write His agenda for me. It was clear that he wanted me to surrender. Yet I was not ready for His Lordship. I was not willing for God to take over every area of my life.”

Keevee continued to seek God when she became a university student at the University of the Philippines Diliman. Victory Quezon City connected her to different women leaders on campus, all of whom tried to take her through ONE 2 ONE, Victory’s seven-lesson discipleship guide designed to help facilitate conversations to jumpstart a person’s walk with God.

“I had issues about the chapter on Lordship,” Keevee says. “I was also afraid to be baptized, because I thought it meant that I wouldn’t have control over myself anymore.”

Underneath the good-girl exterior, Keevee freely admits that she was selfish. Her kindness and obedience was not out of a genuine care and concern for people. “I found security in my relationships because I needed to feel loved. I took pride in being ‘that nice friend’ to everyone.” More and more, she put pressure on herself to please the people in her life. In all her efforts, however, she felt empty deep down.

 

Keevee describes her family as her "best friends."

Keevee describes her family as her “best friends.”

After some time, Keevee agreed to be baptized—but she still held on to her hesitations on lordship. “I decided, He can be the Lord of all, but not in the area of my relationships.” Shortly after being baptized, she entered into a relationship with a man who did not share her faith. “I thought it was a proper response to the call of discipleship.” Though she was able to preach the gospel to her boyfriend, “it felt empty. I felt like was stuck, and I lost who I was, in the process.”

Keevee decided to lay her cards before God at this point. “After a year in the relationship, I told God that I could not change this person, and that if He did not want this relationship for me, then He could take it away, and if possible, spare me from heartbreak.”

At that point, God was giving Keevee the grace to put Him above her own desires and that of her boyfriend. She soon decided to end her relationship with her boyfriend, and God’s perfect timing became painfully clear to her why.

“Eight months after we broke up, I learned that my ex-boyfriend got someone pregnant, even while we were together.”

God proved Himself faithful, answering the entirety of Keevee’s prayer—by both giving her the strength and grace to end the relationship, and sparing her from further heartache.

Keevee acknowledges that it was God who helped her through her challenges with Lordship. “Being Lord does not mean that He calls the shots in everything I do because He wants to boss me around. (Jesus being Lord means) He cares for every small detail of my life.”

Keevee (center) meets this growing Victory group composed of young single professionals weekly,

Keevee now knows who is at the center of her relationships. “Jesus continued to pursue me like no other man can.” With this truth, she fully and completely found her security in Christ. “I can say that I learned to depend on Him more, because He knows best.”

Now, Keevee is seeing things through a different lens. “Because I experience God’s mercy every day, I’m motivated to tell others about Jesus.” She currently leads a Bible study group in her workplace, and has invited her colleagues to Victory Pioneer. “The call for discipleship is very natural,” she says, “and God’s grace is sufficient.” Along with a team of twelve others, she embarked on a short-term mission trip for the first time in a creative access nation.

Interestingly enough, now that Keevee has put God first, He also multiplied her time with those she loves. She considers her family “her best friends,” and seeking a romantic relationship doesn’t hold the same weight it used to. “I began to look at my season of singlehood (as a time for me to) be maximized—that this is the best time to get to know my Maker, so that I will understand myself more.”

For Keevee, there’s a world of difference when you give God your all. He fills each of us  with peace, joy, and rest, no matter what. “God is faithful when you surrender,” she smiles.

Indeed.

Lawin victims to rebuild homes; Victory happy to help

Lawin victims receive new housing as relief efforts continue

A month and a half since Typhoon Lawin (international name Haima) struck the Philippine provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, and Ilocos Sur, thousands of affected families continue to rebuild from the devastation. Clinging onto their faith in God and the generosity of their countrymen, they work to rehabilitate their homes and livelihoods.

Several relief operations have ended, but other rehabilitation efforts continue, including that of nonprofit organization Habitat for Humanity Philippines. Last November 25, Bishop Manny Carlos, Victory Philippines Chairman, and Pastor Gilbert Foliente, Victory Philippines Executive Director, met with Habitat for Humanity and signed a memorandum of agreement that would give us the honor of helping several affected families rebuild their homes.

We stand with and pray for our countrymen affected by Typhoon Lawin. Our churches in Cagayan, Isabela, and Ilocos Sur have been working to aid those affected, and we invite everyone to continue to keep our countrymen in your prayers. Together, let us call on the Lord and trust that He is near to us, especially our brothers and sisters affected by the typhoon.

Welcome our new church in Bataan: Victory Limay!

We are launching our newest church plant, located in the historical province of Bataan. Please welcome Victory Limay!

This fresh church plant started with a ONE 2 ONE meeting in one of the business establishments in the city. From there, a Victory group composed of the company’s employees began meeting regularly, and they grew in number as the months progressed.

The church held its first weekly service in April 2015, at one of the company’s boardrooms! More and more people got wind of the weekly services, so much so that even non-employees would come and attend.

That same year, students began to meet in groups at the Limay Polytechnic College. During the eight weeks that they met, the students became discipled, led their own Victory groups, and eventually became part of the team of volunteers helping establish the church.

Because of the growing number of people joining our church plant, we moved to a bigger location, which is now where Victory Limay currently meets.

On Sunday, December 4, join us as we officially launch Victory Limay! Services will be held every Sunday, 2 PM, at Aguinaldo St., Brgy. Bo. Luz/Kitang 2, in Limay.

Please continue to stand with us in prayer—for greater growth, not just in numbers, but in each church member’s walk with God! We are in faith that as we reach out to more students, employees, and families, more and more lives will be transformed by the saving power of Jesus Christ.

If you have family or friends in the area, invite them to our newest church plant in Bataan—Victory Limay!

HARK_WEB_ICON

New Series: Hark

Christmas is not meant to bring dread. With all the traffic, parties, expenses, and reunions, the Christmas season often brings a lot of hassle and inconvenience. More than this, it’s in this season that many of us experience various kinds of fears—not having enough resources, having awkward family reunions, and even sharing the gospel to our family and loved ones.

In our new series entitled “Hark!”, we will study the lives of different people in the events leading up to Jesus’s birth.  Through this series, may we be reminded that Christmas is more than just the parties, traditions, the things we have (or don’t have), and our fears. May each of us truly celebrate Christmas—with joy, expectancy, and thanksgiving—and respond in a way that honors and pleases God.

Here is the list of weekly topics:

  • Week one: Fear Not but Believe God (Zechariah)
  • Week two: Fear Not but Trust God (Mary)
  • Week three: Fear Not but Obey God (Joseph)
  • Week four: Fear Not, You are Important to God (The shepherds)

Join us at a Victory location nearest you! Victory is one church in Metro Manila meeting in 29 locations across the metropolis. We also meet in multiple venues throughout the Philippines.

If you’re tweeting about the “Hark!” series, please use the official hashtag #HarkSeries.

Don’t forget to invite your family and friends! See you at our services!

SCL-Graduation-1

School of Church Leadership Holds First Graduation Ceremonies

November 22 marked a milestone for our ministry, as we held the first graduation ceremonies for the School of Church Leadership. We took time to honor and recognize 37 students who devoted themselves to three months of training in biblical studies, organizational leadership, and practical ministry skills.

SCL-Graduation-3

The School of Church Leadership is designed to train and equip incoming full-time pastors for their service in ministry. Each pastor will be equipped in the fundamental principles of leadership development and ministry assignment. It prepares these men and women to have the biblical, theological, and ministry foundations essential for leading a church and taking it to the next level of growth. These 37 students from different Victory Metro Manila locations, provincial churches, and Every Nation churches were trained to be lead pastors, discipleship pastors, kids pastors, pastoral services pastors, and worship pastors. We are expectant for the growth God will bring, not only in people whom we will all disciple, but in more leaders who will honor God and advance His kingdom as they respond to His call in the ministry.

Victory Malate Celebrates 20 Years

With the theme, “ALL OUT,” Victory Malate celebrated their 20th anniversary last November 15 at the Every Nation15129022_10157928246790393_7294017126950631_o building. The event gathered their Victory group leaders and volunteers, with the objective of inspiring them to look forward to the next five years as we enlarge our sphere of influence as a movement. The theme is derived from Isaiah 54:2: “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes.”

Their program highlighted God’s goodness and faithfulness to Victory Malate through the years.

From a small prayer meeting in U.P. Manila, the church has grown to 4,000 people in the weekly worship services, 453 Victory group leaders, and 800 volunteers today. Addressing all the leaders and interns present, Pastor Jun Escosar also talked about the importance and crucial role of the church today in the world. Expounding the theme, he said that Christians cannot live an all-out life for God and be distracted. He drove the point home with this memorable line: “The key to a miserable Christian life is to give only 97 percent.”

After spoken word performances from guest performers, the music team led the singing of “Pour Us Out.” The night ended with a prayer from Pastor Nixon Ng, a video presentation, and more celebration songs sung heartily by everyone. It was indeed a wonderful time of connecting with one another, and a reigniting of passion for preaching God’s word and making disciples.

Victory Bambang2

Victory Bambang Has Officially Launched!

Last Sunday, November 13, we officially welcomed our 78th church plant in the Philippines: Victory Bambang!

Situated in the province of Nueva Vizcaya, Bambang is home to more than 50,000 people and is considered the province’s agricultural center. With many campuses and two major universities in the area, we are expectant of the many great things God will through our new church as they reach out to the next generation. Church planting efforts for Victory Bambang started several years ago after Victory Bayombong was established and the leaders noticed that there were a lot of people attending the worship service from the town of Bambang.

The Bambang church plant attracted people living and working in the community, and it later on grew when these people started inviting their family to church, as well. God continued to bless the church with growth, and soon multi-generation leaders stepped out in faith and created their Victory groups. At present, the church has 22 Victory groups, and we are in faith that these will multiply as more people hear the preaching of God’s word.

Victory Bambang’s grand launch was held at the second floor of the Landbank Building in Barangay Banggot. It was an opportune time to give thanks to God, and to fellowship with other members, including friends from Victory Bayombong. Their worship service will be held regularly every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. KIDS Church will also happen simultaneously at the same venue.So, don’t forget to invite your friends and family to our church in Nueva Vizcaya!

Together, let us intercede for this new church plant’s leadership team, volunteers and staff as they continue to advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines.

Victory Naga

Victory Naga Celebrates First Anniversary

Victory Naga Victory Naga celebrated their first anniversary last October 23!

With the theme, “We Are One: Together Stronger,” our year-old church in Bicol has grown so much since it was first started, and by God’s grace, it continues to grow in number as more Bicolanos hear the preaching of God’s word.

Naga City is considered the heart of Bicol, due to its location right at the center of the province of Camarines Sur. It is the Bicol region’s center for trade and business; the hub for religious, cultural, industrial, and commercial activity. It is also home to the six largest universities in the Bicol region, making it South Luzon’s educational center. Apart from being the hub of activity, Naga is also strategically located to give way to more church plants in neighboring towns such as Iriga and Nabua.

Church planting efforts in this city began in 2002. In 2014, with the help of Victory Legazpi and through the leadership of Pastor Al Bantayan, monthly gatherings were held, which made an impact in the creation of more Victory groups. On April 2015, Pastor Jason Calara graduated from the School of Church Planting and was an answered prayer to the church. Finally, on July 2015, the Victory Naga church plant transferred to their own center at Nagaland E-Mall, holding their soft launch there.Victory Naga 2

Through the power of prayer, discipleship, and fellowship, Victory Naga held their grand launch last October 2015. This year, we witnessed their heart to engage culture and community, establish biblical foundations, equip believers to minister, and empower disciples to make more disciples, as they celebrated their first anniversary, stronger and better than before.

Let us continue to pray for open doors and open hearts, so that more disciples and leaders will be raised for God’s glory in Bicol. Together, let us intercede for this young church’s leadership team, volunteers and staff as they continue to advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines.

Victory Bambang Church in Nueva Vizcaya

Victory to launch new church in Nueva Vizcaya

Victory Bambang Church in Nueva VizcayaThis November 13, we look forward to honoring God and making disciples with a new church plant in Nueva Vizcaya: Victory Bambang! Our 78th church in the Philippines will launch this November 13, 9:00 a.m., at the second floor of the Landbank Building in Barangay Banggot.

With more than 50,000 people calling this first-class municipality in Nueva Vizcaya home, Bambang–which takes its name from the Isinay word meaning “to dig”–has many centers of commerce and tourism, including the salt springs at the Salinas Natural Monument. We also look forward to reaching out to the next generation; the location of our church in Nueva Vizcaya is near many school campuses, including King’s College of the Philippines, Nueva Vizcaya State University, Advocates College, Saint Catherine’s School, Bambang National High School, and Salinas High School.

As we welcome you to Victory Bambang, please spread the word and invite your family and friends in Nueva Vizcaya to join us as we honor God and make disciples here. Pray with us for open doors and open hearts, so that more disciples and leaders will be raised for God’s glory. Together, let us intercede for this new church plant’s leadership team, volunteers and staff as they continue to advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines.

Victory Zamboanga

Victory Zamboanga Celebrates 18th Anniversary

Victory Zamboanga celebrates eighteen years of God’s faithfulness!Victory Zamboanga 3

Our church in this province of Mindanao started in 1998 from a student outreach, and grew into a church that is, by God’s grace, growing in numbers. Our worship services are now regularly held at two locations: the Victory Center at Unichan Building, and the Celebrity Hall at the Grand Astoria Hotel.

Last Sunday, October 30, we celebrated our 18th anniversary at the Grand Astoria Hotel with the theme, “Unashamed of the Gospel.” As we witnessed Victory Zamboanga’s growth, we also saw God’s faithfulness as He appointed volunteers, interns and leaders to advance His kingdom in Zamboana City, under the leadership of Pastor Ritchie Llanto.

This year, we also conducted our own discipleship conference in Tumaga. The event attracted a total of 124 leaders and interns, including leaders from our Victory Ipil church plant. Because of the growing discipleship culture among the young people there, Victory Zamboanga also launched a worship service for college students.

Let us continue to pray for our church in Zamboanga to be a witness to Mindanao and the southern islands. We are in faith that God will open doors here, so that we will continue to make more disciples, train leaders, and plant churches charged with the Holy Spirit in this part of the Philippines.

Victory Zamboanga is just one of Victory’s provincial churches all over the Philippines! Click here to learn more about Victory Zamboanga!

Victory Apalit Kicks Off First Worship Service

14695414_10154174344879773_262938965013627367_nWe’re excited to honor God and make more disciples in Pampanga!

Last Sunday, October 23, our church plant in Apalit launched their first worship service at the 2nd Floor of JNW Building, located along McArthur Highway, Sampaloc in Apalit, Pampanga. Under the leadership of Pastor Edwin Navarro, church planting efforts for Apalit begun as early as July, and construction of the center was started by August this year.

Apalit is an urban municipality located in the province of Pampanga. It has an estimated population of 101,537, as of the 2010 census. The municipality is surrounded by Macabebe, Masantol, Minalin and San Simon in Pampanga, and Calumpit, Pulilan, Baliuag. It is home to numerous schools for elementary and high school students. This means that a great number of souls, especially the next generation, are waiting to be touched and to be transformed by the gospel. 

Pray with us as we reach out to more Pampangueños! We’re in faith that more families, students, and young professionals in Apalit will get to hear the gospel regularly. Let us intercede for our pastors, leaders, and volunteers in this new church plant as they advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines. Don’t forget to invite your family and friends in the area, too!

Let us pray for those affected by Typhoon Lawin

On Wednesday night, October 19, Typhoon Lawin (international name Haima) made landfall in the town of Peñablanca, Cagayan. With maximum sustained winds of 225 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts of up to 315 kph, Lawin soon pounded the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, and Ilocos Sur. Eight persons have lost their lives, and thousands of families have lost their homes and are in need of basic goods and medical attention. Damage to city infrastructure is estimated in the tens of millions of pesos.

We stand with and pray for our countrymen affected by this typhoon. Since last week, we have been working with our churches in Cagayan, Isabela, and Ilocos Sur, to aid those affected. We invite everyone to continue to keep our countrymen in your prayers. Together, let us call on the Lord and trust that He is near to us, especially our brothers and sisters affected by the typhoon.

Real LIFE to Conduct National Scholars’ Conference

From October 24 to 26, 2016, more than 260 Real LIFE Foundation scholars from Metro Manila and the provincial areas will gather for their annual National Scholar’s Conference. This event aims to equip the scholars for L.I.F.E. (leadership, integrity, faith, excellence) and to encourage them in their faith.

The conference is also a great opportunity for our Real LIFE scholars to be connected, build relationships with fellow scholars from other Philippine cities, and be inspired to make a difference in their own ways.

The scholars will hear from different Victory pastors, namely Pastor Joseph Bonifacio, who will talk about leadership; Pastor Gilbert Foliente, who will speak about integrity; Pastor Joey Bonifacio, who will expound Huddle copyon faith; and Bishop Ferdie Cabiling, who will tackle the topic of excellence.

There will also be workshops focused on different course tracks like engineering, accountancy, communications and information technology, and business management. These sessions will be done in a classroom set-up, with the goal of preparing our students for their respective fields after graduation. Every Nation campus missionaries will also speak to our high school scholars about identity, character and developing good habits.

We are in faith that when our Real LIFE scholars go back to their respective homes and campuses after the conference, they will be refreshed, energized, and encouraged to live lives of leadership, integrity, faith, and excellence, and inspire others to do the same!

Victory Cebu Launches New Service Schedules

We’re excited to honor God and make more disciples in

Mandaue, Cebu! Last October 9, Victory Cebu launched five new worship services at the Victory Main Hall of J Centre Mall along Fortuna Street in Bakilid, Mandaue City. Here’s the new schedule of services of Victory Cebu: English Sundays – 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m. Cebuano – English Sundays – 1:00 p.m. Youth worship services will continue to be held every Friday at 7:00 p.m.

Mandaue is an independent highly urbanized city that forms a part of the Cebu metropolitan area. Its housing costs are lower, compared to neighboring cities, attracting a lot of families looking for a place to settle in. This means that a great number of souls are waiting to be touched and transformed by the gospel.

Let’s intercede for our leaders and volunteers as we reach out to the heart of Cebu! We invite you to pray with us for open doors, open hearts, and divine appointments in Mandaue, so that more disciples and leaders will be established for God’s glory. We’re believing God for more families, students, and young professionals to have a relationship with Jesus and be discipled by this church in the Philippines!

Victory Kalibo

Happy 1st Anniversary, Victory Kalibo!

Last Sunday, September 25, Victory Kalibo celebrated its first anniversary!

Kalibo is the capital of Aklan, which is located in Western Visayas. The province is best known for Boracay, a resort island with white sandy beaches frequented by tourists from all over the world. Under the leadership of Pastor Fil Yasay, Victory Kalibo officially launched in September last year at the Ati-Atihan County Inn located beside the Municipal Trial Court. Their regular worship service schedule is 10:00 a.m. every Sunday. They recently added another Sunday worship service every 4:00 p.m. at the Victory Kalibo Center along Mabini Street (across Mercury Drug).

God’s faithfulness continues to pour into this young church plant as we witness them grow and multiply in number through the months. We’re thankful that more families, students, and young professionals in Kalibo get to hear the gospel regularly. Let us intercede for our pastors, leaders, and volunteers in Victory Kalibo as they advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines. Pray, also, with us as we honor God and make disciples in the heart of Aklan! Don’t forget to invite your family and friends in the area, too!

Victory Molino Celebrates 5th Anniversary

Victory Molino turned five last September 25! In 2007, church planting efforts for Molino were started by a team from Victory Bacoor. They engaged with the locals, mostly in the residential areas. This bore fruit and before long, thirty-four Victory groups were meeting in different homes in this municipality. Caviteños started getting discipled, and they invited their family and friends to take part in having a relationship with Jesus. The church plant grew to 200 members in just two months, with their facility holding two services every Sunday at the Masaito Building along Molino Road. Last September 2011, Victory Molino finally celebrated their official launch. As we witnessed the church’s growth, we also witnessed God’s faithfulness as He appointed volunteers, interns and leaders to advance His kingdom in Molino, Cavite. This is why we rejoiced with them as they commemorated their fifth anniversary last Sunday. Victory Molino currently holds two worship services every Sunday, 9:00 am for the Taglish service, and 11:00 am for the English service, at the third floor of the Masaito Building along Molino Road in Bacoor, Cavite. Pray with us as we reach out to the heart of

Victory Talisay Kicks Off New Worship Service

Pastor Zab PanimdimGod has been tremendously faithful to our churches in Cebu City!

From 2012 to 2014, God led Victory Cebu on the path to tremendous growth as their numbers flourished to 2000. This paved the way for the Victory Talisay church plant, which was started under the leadership of Pastor Zab Panimdim and officially launched last December 2015.

Primarily a residential and trading center, Talisay City lies within the Metro Cebu area. Its name is taken from the magtalisay tree which is abundant in the city. It currently has a population of 250,965 that increases to around 5% every year. It is also comprised of 22 barangays, and is surrounded by 42 campuses. This includes elementary schools, public and private secondary schools, and colleges. This means that a great number of souls are waiting to be touched and to be transformed by the gospel.

With this, Victory Talisay has launched another worship service schedule. In addition to its 2:00 p.m. Sunday service, the church now has a 4:00 p.m. Sunday service, which is still regularly held on the third floor of South Town Centre in Tabunok.

Indeed, the harvest is plenty and we believe that more disciples will be trained, more leaders will be raised up, and more of the next generation will be reached by the gospel of Jesus, in the South. Invite your friends and family, and let’s join our churches in Cebu, connecting more Cebuanos to Jesus!

Talavera7

Victory Talavera Has Officially Launched!

Talavera 4Last September 18, Sunday, we witnessed the grand launch of a new church plant in the heart of Nueva Ecija: Victory Talavera! Our 76th provincial church officially launched on the second floor of Amini Building, located along Maharlika Highway at Zone 6, Maestrang Kikay. Their worship services will be regularly held at this venue every Sunday at 9:30am. Under the leadership of Pastor Jeff and Niña Roque, church planting efforts started in 2013. With the help of Victory Cabanatuan, the church was able to steadily establish their presence and start engaging the people in the area. By God’s grace, from their previous venue at the second floor of LandBank, Victory Talavera was able to secure a new center at the Amini Building.

A motorcade kicked off the launch, with volunteers and leaders onboard. Bishop Juray Mora, Victory Philippines’ National Director, graced the launch as a guest speaker. Our other churches in Central Luzon also came to celebrate with Victory Talavera.

Conveniently located along the busy thoroughfare of Maharlika Highway, the Amini Building is accessible and easily identifiable to many Talavera residents. Because it intersects with a lot of access points from different parts of Central Luzon, Victory Talavera is situated at a place that makes it easy to engage and invite people to the church.

Talavera 3Let us continue to pray for open doors and open hearts, so that more disciples and leaders will be raised for God’s glory. Together, let us intercede for

this new church plant’s leadership team, volunteers and staff as they continue to advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines.

Ways you can Show Love to Your Family

In week six of our “All and Nothing” series, we learned what it means to honor God in our family relationships. Today, let’s explore how we can put what we learned into practice. What are different ways we can show love to our family members?

 

Through our Words IMG_1808

We have an opportunity daily to be a blessing, not only in serving and generosity, but with our words. The Bible encourages us to speak life, and when we encourage our families, we let God’s words be our words, and become instruments of His blessing to them.

When was the last time you told a family member that you loved them? Encourage a family member today by highlighting something that he or she did that genuinely impresses or encourages you.

 

+++

Through our Service

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45)

Jesus set the example of service by laying his life down for His disciples. In the same way, we can follow His example of service and humility, especially in our households. It’s a good thing when we volunteer in our respective local centers, but let us not forget that serving should first start in our homes.

In the next weekend, take the time to serve your family in a greater capacity. Family members can run errands, make repairs, clean the house or car, or take care of the meals or laundry.  Dads or older brothers can help out with homework or just spend much-needed quality time.

 

Through Prayer

 “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” (James 5:16)

One of the most important—and impactful—things we can do for our family members is praying for them. Whether we’re believing for their salvation, restoration, healing, or abundant financial provision, we can bring these concerns before God and trust that He hears and answers.

Take time this week to pray for your family members. Ask God for wisdom and discernment for the right things to pray for them, including provision, salvation, restoration of relationships, and healing; if you have some who are sick, visit them. Trust the Holy Spirit to give you the right words to bless and encourage those for whom you pray personally.

 

Through Forgiveness

IMG_1804

God’s Word commands us to forgive those who have wronged us, because God forgave us through Christ. Our families are far from perfect, but God’s Word says that we are ministers of reconciliation.

Today, take a moment to ask for forgiveness from someone you’ve offended in your family. Ask God for grace and wisdom as you approach this person. Believe God for restoration and healing in your relationship.

 

 

Jesus best exemplified love for us, and He did so by dying on the cross for each of us more than 2,000 years ago. Let’s remember to show that same love He showed us to our family members.

Victory Tabuk Launching Soon!

We’re excited to witness the launch of Victory Tabuk on September 25!  Jonathan Navalta_Tabuk

Located in the province of Kalinga in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), Tabuk is 548 kilometers away from Manila, approximately ten to twelve hours away by car.

Victory TabukLast month, our church here welcomed their ninth batch of participants for Victory Weekend. Thirteen people publicly declared their faith in Jesus and got water baptized.

If you have friends and family in Kalinga, tell them about Victory Tabuk. Let’s join our new church in the Cordillera Administrative Region, connecting more Kalingas to Jesus!

Victory is Now in Agoo!

Victory Agoo3Located at the province of La Union in Ilocos, Agoo is one of the established Spanish settlements in the region. It is home to the Dinengdeng Festival and is a bustling hub of activity due to its accessibility via the National Highway.

Under the leadership of Pastor Homer Bumanglag, Victory Agoo was officially launched last year in October at the Victory Agoo center located along the National Highway in Santa Barbara, La Union. Mayor Sandra Eriguel and Vice Mayor Henry Balbin graced the launch, along with the leaders and pastors of our other Victory centers. Regular worship services are now held at this venue every Sunday at 10 am.

We are expectant at what God will do in and through this church plant as more and more people get to hear the gospel in Agoo. Soon, the center will also hold regular KIDS church activities at the KIDS church room currently being constructed. Because reaching the next generation is also important for our leaders there, Every Nation Campus Agoo regularly conducts discipleship meetings and events to engage the youth in the area, and the nearby campuses.

Together, let us intercede for our pastors, Victory group leaders and volunteers in Victory Agoo as they advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines. We also encourage you to invite your friends and family in the area to attend Victory Agoo’s worship services soon. We are in faith that as God allows this church to grow in number, He will also cause growth in the spiritual lives of families, students and young professionals in La Union.

Victory Pioneer GO

Victory Pioneer Hosts Leadership Development Activities

Victory Pioneer held its leaders’ convergence last June 30 to July 2, 2016, and held an Engage event for senior high school students a week earlier, capping off leadership events that reached far beyond the walls of its center at the Robinsons Forum in Mandaluyong City.

Leaders and Interns Convergence

Last June 30 to July 2, 2016, Victory Pioneer held their Leaders and Interns Convergence at Forum Robinsons in Mandaluyong.

The three-day conference aimed to reinforce the culture of evangelism to interns and Victory group leaders by encouraging them to engage the lost.

Victory Pioneer leadersTo kick off the event, Every Nation World Missions Director, Pastor Jun Escosar, talked about the heart of why we evangelize. He stressed that evangelism is part of the discipleship process, wherein three relationships are included: relationship with God, relationship with fellow believers, and relationship with the lost. With love as the foundation and relationship as the conduit, “discipleship is never complete until the one you disciple reaches out to the lost,” he said.

On the second day, Pastor Jeff Eliscupidez talked about the Great Commission as a global mission. He encouraged the leaders to be part of the global mission by having both a passport and a Bible. As we reach out to other people, we are reminded that we don’t cause the change in other people, but it is God who does so.

To cap the conference, Bishop Juray Mora talked about the Father’s heart on the third day. He discussed Luke 15:20, which contains the story of the prodigal son. Just as in the parable, Pastor Juray highlighted the forgiving and merciful nature of the Father with the way He deals with His children. He also warned against attaching our value to the world, saying that our identity should only be found in Christ.

The convergence was also an opportune time for leaders and interns from different worship service schedules to fellowship with one another. To listen to the audio messages of the speakers, you may visit this link.

Joyce shared her experience of being persecuted when she was just starting as an artist, and her realization that there was a reason and purpose why God called her to be part of the entertainment industry, while John shared his testimony coming from a broken family and a sinful past, to a life of fulfillment and purpose in Jesus Christ. Around eighty-three students responded to the altar call after Pastor James Macariola preached about purpose. These students are now being followed up by Victory Pioneer’s leaders, so that they can be connected to Victory groups and be discipled. As a result of the event, most of the attendees invited their friends and classmates to the youth service the following day. Save Save Save Save Save Save Save

Welcome, Victory General Mariano Alvarez!

Join us this Sunday as we launch our 75th Victory church plant: Victory Gen. Mariano Alvarez!

Launch Details - Victory Gen Mariano Alvarez

From its humble beginnings as one initial Victory group that met here in June of 2015, our community has grown to 15 Victory groups that now meet in commercial establishments and campuses—specifically, the University of Perpetual Help.

“We started a monthly gathering in the University of Perpetual Help,” says Arnel Gallardo, our lead pastor in this church plant, “with an average of 120 attendees. More than 25 Victory groups and Victory group leaders were raised from those monthly meetings.”

Indeed, we make it a point to reach the campuses of the cities where we plant churches, so we can train and empower the next generation of leaders to make disciples.

Soon enough, our church plant steadily grew, and began holding worship services in Portal Mall. We are expectant and excited for more families, campuses, and businesses to be reached with the gospel.

Join us this Sunday, August 7, at 10 AM, at the Arena, in Portal Mall, for the grand launch of Victory Gen. Mariano Alvarez! Invite your family and friends!

Imparting a Righteous Fight

“Lord, I did everything I knew to do to make my life canadian pharmacy online remarkable, so I can give the glory to you,” states Pastor Greg Wark, alluding to what he would want to tell God face-to-face when he meets Him. Pastor Greg, the founder of Force Ministries, a non-profit organization that uses mentoring relationships to help soldiers and their families grow as leaders, spoke to more than 2,800 men from different parts of Metro Manila, for the talk Boots on the Ground.

“Manhood is defined when you are in combat,” Pastor Greg says, expounding on the truth that every man must be in a righteous fight. He notes that “a man without a righteous fight will degenerate.” He emphasized that as followers of Christ and believers in the gospel and God’s Word, “we have a solution to every problem man can invent.” “Go out there and do something,” he adds, telling the audience that if we are to put on the armor of God, it’s because you need to “go somewhere where you’re going to get hit.” “He wants you where evil is prevailing,” he continued, citing his experience in venturing to dangerous and conflict-ridden sites, with the ultimate goal of expressing God’s love and compassion to those in need. “Jesus only took one thing on earth, His scars,” Pastor Greg explains, highlighting that every man is “born with a mission inside of our soul,” referencing how Jesus best exemplified this during His ministry here on earth. Because preparing for the fight starts with healing “You’re either going to be weighed down with the weapons you need in your future, or weighed with the wounds of the past,” says Pastor Greg, reminding the attendees that they need to be healed from the wounds of the past before getting into the fight. After his part of the talk where he discussed the need for men to always be ready for the mission God has called them to, he invited Pastor JT to preach about the need for healing. Pastor JT discussed the three wounds that every man needs to address: the father wound, mother wound, and friend wound. All these have an effect on how a man interacts with the world around him and sees himself. “When you have those wounds, you’ll accept passivity and reject responsibility,” he says.

He then proceeded to lead cialis experience the men in attendance in a time of prayer and ministry, reminding everyone that “those wounds inflicted on you (are) not your fault.” “Don’t take your wounds into battle,” he notes, sharing that a relationship with the Father, commitment and focus to our mission as men, and strong friendships with other godly men, are necessary for these wounds to heal. After Pastor JT spoke, Pastor Greg came up the stage to close the meeting. He asked the men cheap viagra online to do a prophetic act, encouraging them to clench their fist, as if holding onto something.

Victory Carmona

Victory Launches New Carmona Church

Last June 12, Sunday, we witnessed the grand launch of a new church plant in the province of Cavite: Victory Carmona.

Our 74th Victory provincial church officially launched on the third floor of the 88 Building, located in Barangay Maduya, Carmona. It will have its regular weekly services every Sunday at 10:30 am.

Scouting for the church’s venue began last year with the team of Pastor Noel Bibat at its helm. By God’s grace, they were able to secure a location last June 2015. Conveniently located along the busy thoroughfare of Governor’s Drive, the 88 Building is accessible and easily identifiable to many Carmona residents. Restaurants, banks, shops, and service centers can be found in the building, attracting a lot of customers and passersby to the venue. Because of its easily identifiable location and the numerous establishments in the area, Victory Carmona is situated at a place that makes it easy to engage and invite people to the church.

Let us continue to pray for open doors and open hearts, so that more disciples and leaders will be raised for God’s glory. Together, let us intercede for this new church plant’s leadership team, volunteers and staff as they continue to advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines.

Camilla Rivera

Of Fairy Tales and Happy Endings

Camilla Rivera  “I used to search for love from fairy tales and romance films,” says 27-year old Camilla Rivera, a self-confessed hopeless romantic.

Growing up in a broken family, she has craved love and acceptance since her parents’ separation when she was 12 years old. The memory of the day they separated is still vivid in her mind.

Throughout her high school years, Camilla felt alone. She described it as one of the most difficult times in her life. Like all girls her age, she needed proper guidance but didn’t get any from her parents. So, she turned to her peers. Enrolled in an exclusive school for girls, she looked for love, even entering a same-sex relationship to see where it would take her.

Camilla also developed an indulgent lifestyle that she thought would fill the emptiness inside her. While in college, she entered the modeling industry to sustain her wants and whims. While studying, she met the man who would eventually father her child. Not wanting to be alone anymore, and thinking that she already wanted her own family, Camilla got pregnant at 20 years old. “But after six years of this relationship, we decided to part ways,” she reveals. “I realized I was not really happy.”

Camilla RiveraGiving birth to a daughter didn’t stop Camilla from entering into a lot of flings and short-term relationships. Finally, she met another man, an Indian who became her long-term boyfriend. Camilla found comfort and security in her relationship with him. “My life revolved around him,” she confesses, “I didn’t know it then, but I realized I was guilty of idolatry, and he was the idol.”

The man proposed marriage to Camilla, and she accepted. It was exactly what she has been dreaming of since she was a little girl–her own Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet. “I was on cloud nine!” she exclaims. However, after the initial thrill of the proposal passed, Camilla started having second thoughts. She was in the midst of wedding preparations when she realized that she wasn’t happy. She started questioning if she was actually in the right relationship. “He accepted my past, yes. He loves me, yes. But he wanted me to leave my daughter here. We couldn’t bring her to live in his country,” Camilla explains, “That just changed my entire perspective!” With a heavy heart, she decided to end the relationship and her fiancé left the Philippines for good.

The break-up shattered Camilla’s life. She was devastated and started questioning her purpose. She blamed God and asked Him why He had to let her undergo such a painful experience. It was Christmas Eve when Camilla encountered God through Isaiah 66:9 (NCV), “In the same way, I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,” says the Lord.

In the solitude of her room, while crying out to God, Camilla felt comforted. She felt that God was asking her to come home. “He brought me back on the right track, just when I seemed to be so lost,” she shares, “He understands how painful discipline can be, but it is His way to remind me to trust His plans accordingly.”

Victory WeekendAfter her intimate encounter with God, Camilla remembered her friends, who had been consistently inviting her to attend Victory and join a Victory group since 2014. So, last January 2016, she finally decided to join them during the Dare to Believe prayer and fasting week. She only had one prayer: to have a personal relationship with Christ.  “Father, I want to know you,” Camilla prayed, “I want to keep my eyes on you and have a relationship with you. Reveal yourself to me.”

Last April 2016, Camille publicly declared her faith and was water baptized at Victory Weekend. God heard her prayer, and answered it. “I was not worthy of His love, but Christ still died for me,” she declares, “I was forgiven and his grace has saved me. I now live to honor Him and advance His kingdom.”

Today, Camilla serves as a KIDS Church volunteer, where her daughter also participates. She is in faith that she will be able to lead her own Victory Group by next year.

From someone who craved acceptance from the wrong places, she is now overflowing with God’s redemptive love. Now stronger and content, she’s not looking for ‘happily ever afters’ elsewhere, She has now found her eternity in Christ.

Ate Janine

Living Out Servant Leadership

Adel Intervalo “YOLO. That was my mindset, then. I wanted to try everything.” This was the philosophy that 21-year old Adel Intervalo adhered to when she was still a student at the University of the Philippines – Diliman. A self-confessed party girl, she found herself wanting to audition for the UP Streetdance Club. To her delight, she passed. She joined the team, and started to officially train with them. That’s where she met Mark, a student from Victory Malate who would always preach the gospel before they start training. “I was an atheist that time,” Adel reveals, “I was really curious why this person was so deeply in love with Jesus.” Adel dealt with issues of rejection and abandonment in her high school years, and brought these baggage with her until college. She described herself as violent, and she was constantly angry at her mother and sisters. She tried all the vices she encountered, and partied hard. Eventually, God paved the way for Adel to meet more Christians in the university. Her curiosity turned to wonder. “They made me curious about having a relationship with Jesus,” she confesses, “I was beginning to ask myself why they’re so happy, and I’m not.” Her hunger to know more about Jesus gave her the motivation to attend a youth service at Victory Metro East, after being invited by a friend from high school. That day, during the youth service, Adel surrendered her life to Christ. However, it would take her some time to grasp God’s lordship in her life. Several months passed before she agreed to go through ONE 2 ONE, and eventually, Victory Weekend with her mentor, Janine Bitoren. Adel’s relationship with her family improved, and she started preaching the gospel to her mother and sisters. Ate JanineRecognizing Adel’s potential, Janine raised and empowered her to be a leader. Soon, Adel was leading fellow students at the UP-Diliman and at Metro East. She is also a volunteer at Victory Antipolo, which was birthed through a campus outreach. She met more students at Victory Antipolo and started leading them in a Victory group, too. “The students who would reason out that Victory Metro East is far from where they live, now have no excuse but to attend,” she laughs. For Adel, it was instrumental that her mentor empowered her because it gave her the courage and the motivation to step up and lead. She brought this same encouraging environment in her own Victory group, too. “Ate Janine stepped down, so that we can rise up, so I do the same to the young people I’m leading,” she shares. “Most importantly, I became secure that leading is not really about me, but about Jesus. I’m not better than the people that I am leading, I’m simply the one that God used to lead them.” Leading other people to Christ brings joy to her heart. However, it is not without challenges. Because she

is taking on a leadership role at such a young age, Adel has encountered feelings of insecurity and unworthiness. Nevertheless, she always receives an assurance from God that it is He who will supply her with wisdom and the right words to say. “God would remind me that He is the one who will change people, not me,” she shares. Victory groupBeing a student, there were also times that Adel had to sacrifice her resources to bless others. She would go to Antipolo to minister to people, which would require her own time and money. There were instances that she was tempted to stop leading, especially when she would entertain the lies that her efforts are of no use. “Every time I would be ready to tell my Victory group that I will be introducing them to another leader, every time that moment comes up, I end up ministering to them instead,” she shares. “That always reminds me that God entrusted people to me for a purpose.” Seeing God move in these people’s lives gives her joy, so much that her hard work pales in comparison. After encountering the love of Christ, Adel finds it selfish not to share it with others. She continues reaching out to others because she believes that if God could bring hope in her life, then He could do it in anyone’s life. “All sacrifices are not in vain and are nothing compared to what Jesus did for us,” she says. When Adel surrendered her life to Christ, she experienced what she calls the greatest miracle in her life. God changed her life, and used that to reach her family. Now, her mother and her sisters have a relationship with Jesus, and they continue to grow in their faith. Adel is in awe whenever she would see them leading people to God, or serving in church, and in their campus. For Adel, Christ satisfied the emptiness she had in her heart for so long. It changed her self-centered mindset to a Christ-centered one, and aligned her desires to His purposes. “From just the desire to change the kind of life I have,” she explains, “He gave me the desire to help others change the path they take. I have the desire to disciple students who are broken, because I know that God’s love can change them into the kind of person that He could use mightily.”

DareToBelieve_Midyear_App_Square

Daring to Believe for Miracles

“I said yes, even if I had no idea what I’m supposed to do.” These were the words of Troy Alvarez, a 17-year old student at Lyceum of Alabang, who joined our Dare to Believe prayer and fasting week last January 2016. On the first day of fasting, he felt God speak to him to pray for someone in church. It was the first time he heard God tell him to pray for someone. He didn’t know any special prayers, and he didn’t know how to approach strangers. Still, he said yes. The next day in Victory Alabang during the first session of prayer and fasting, he scanned the crowd for someone he could pray for, and his eyes fell on an elderly woman. He couldn’t shake the feeling that this woman had cancer. Troy prayed for confirmation from God, and a feeling of certainty washed over him. “This is her. God wants me to pray for this woman,” he told himself. After praise and worship, Troy started approaching the woman but before he could get near her, he was suddenly overwhelmed with fear and uncertainties. He couldn’t move a step forward and found himself retreating to his seat. Doubtful and defeated, Troy headed home instead. During his commute, there was a gnawing feeling inside him. He couldn’t take his mind off the elderly woman who needed his prayers. “I could feel there was something wrong,” he confesses, “I didn’t obey God because I was thinking more of what other people would say. I didn’t trust Him.” Feeling humbled, Troy prayed that the woman would be there tomorrow and he resolved to approach her, so he can do what God has been telling him to do. The next day, Troy

immediately looked for the woman. God answered his prayer, because he had no difficulty finding her. Gathering courage, he approached her and introduced himself. He found out that his name is Ester, and she was fighting breast cancer. At the time she met Troy, the cancer had spread to her lungs. “I asked her if I could pray for her,” he narrates, “I told her that God has been telling me to pray specifically for her.” As Troy was praying, he suddenly felt very cold and goosebumps overwhelmed him. He felt the presence of Jesus in their midst. He shared with her his life verse from Mark 11:24, “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Before long, he found himself crying with Tita Ester. “After praying for her, I was speechless and I felt really cold,” Troy shares, “I felt a mix of emotions, but the most overwhelming thing is the joy that is overflowing in me.” The next day, Troy went to church again and the first thing he did was look for Tita Ester. To his dismay, she wasn’t in church. Troy couldn’t help but worry and feel anxious about her absence. Remembering how he felt Jesus’ presence yesterday, Troy was comforted. At home, he continued to pray and fast for Tita Ester’s healing. He knew nothing is impossible with God. He is sovereign, and He can cure any sickness in a blink of an eye. On the last day of prayer and fasting week, Troy prayed to see Tita Ester once again. To his relief, she was in church and he ran towards her once he saw her. Tita Ester was in high spirits. She had wonderful news that she couldn’t wait to tell Troy about. Doctors were dumbfounded to discover that the cancer in her lungs seemed to have disappeared! Upon hearing the news, Troy felt a wave of peacefulness wash over him. God did not only give him front row seats to witness a miracle, but He used him to be an instrument of blessing to someone he didn’t even know when the week began. Troy wasn’t spared from the voices in his head telling him that his faith is not enough to heal, but he clung to his life verse and was reassured that God can do the impossible. Ester’s daughter, April, agrees; her mother recently underwent laser surgery to remove a small tumor discovered in her brain. “Though we know Mom’s fight with cancer isn’t completely over,” she shares, “we know that the victory is already ours because of Jesus. We’re so blessed because God gives her so much strength; she’s a fighter.” Ester’s courage has made quite the impression on Troy. “This experience taught me to be brave,” Troy shares, “It showed me that when God declares something, it will happen. We’re not the miracle workers, we’re just the instruments, so we need not fear. We just have to dare to believe.”

VPC Summit

Victory Provincial Churches National Summit held

National Summit 2016Last June 16, we welcomed Victory church planters, senior pastors, and their wives to the Every Nation Building Phase 2 Function Hall for the Victory Provincial Churches’ National Summit 2016.

This annual event is a highly anticipated opportunity for our pastors and staff to strengthen mission alignment and promote relational unity among the leaders of our provincial churches.

At this year’s summit, Victory founding pastor Steve Murrell talked about mission alignment, which refers to the way the provincial churches embrace and serve towards the Every Nation mission, specifically church planting, campus ministry, and world missions.

Pastor Steve MurrellPastor Gilbert Foliente then talked about relational unity, which refers to the way we make every effort to maintain unity as we serve together, intentionally working to build healthy, long-term relationships that result in synergy and greater collaboration.

The summit also aimed to clarify the key priorities of the churches, and to reinforce the church planting process in our leaders, which Pastor Jon Naron talked about.

As we plant more churches in the provinces, let us pray that more people in these places would come to know Jesus and grow deeper in their relationships with Him. Together, let us believe God for open doors to families, campuses, and businesses, so that more Filipinos in the provincial areas would come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Adette Purto family

Finding Peace In God

Adette Purto“I prayed to God to take away everything from me,” Adette confesses, “I just wanted Him to give me peace.”

Adette Purto is a 44-year old mother of three who financially supports her parents, apart from taking care of the needs of her own family. Blessed with the kind of work that affords her to live comfortably, she enjoyed many things that money could buy. However, she soon realized that the material things didn’t really fill the void in her heart.

“I was working myself to death,” she shares, “But I felt unloved and unappreciated. I longed to be loved.”

After she got married, Adette faced a different battle but it still stemmed from the same issue she had faced for years: rejection. In February 2007, she found herself telling God to take away everything, and to just give her peace and happiness. She may not have understood the depth of her prayer, but Adette felt so mired in misery, it was her only recourse. In the months that followed, Adette felt God taking things from her. Interestingly, it was also the time she started to look for ways that would get her out of misery. She started engaging in new age philosophies and witchcraft.

“My business went down, my son almost died of dengue, and I had a terrible car accident,” Adette enumerates. “A train collided with my car, and I was dragged for 500 meters.” Despite her stubbornness and disobedience, God spared her and she wasn’t harmed in the accident, despite the car being a total wreck. With nary a bruise on her, Adette knew God was reaching out to her. She did not know it then, but that moment became her turning point in life.

Her best friend ministered to her after her accident, and told her that God wanted her undivided attention. She attended the first worship service of Victory Pioneer on the first Sunday of 2008. “The moment I entered the hall, I knew I was home and it was the place I have been looking for,” she says, “The Holy Spirit welcomed me.”

Despite being financially broke, emotionally hurt and physically tired, she felt welcome and at peace; that night, Adette responded to the altar call and surrendered her life to Christ. After a month, she was connected to a Victory Group and underwent ONE 2 ONE. Before long, she declared her faith and was water baptized at Victory Weekend.

With God now at the center of her life, her relationships with her family changed. “The gospel made me receive the peace and happiness I have been longing for,” she reveals, “The emotional pains were healed by the unconditional love of God. I was able to forgive because I was forgiven, too.”

Today, Adette is one of the Discipleship coaches of Victory Pioneer. She has been serving in that capacity since 2009, and was also the Discipleship coordinator for the 5pm worship service. This means that she is coaching Victory Group leaders how to lead their respective Victory Groups. Juggling the demands of being a working mom and a discipleship coach, Adette still finds time to lead her own Victory Group.

Adette Purto group“I am making disciples because someone else took the time to disciple me and help me live the life God intended for me,” she says, “I experienced the transforming power of God in my life and sharing it to other people is the least I can do.” For Adette, the time and energy she spends coaching other leaders and mentoring other women is a small sacrifice compared to the sacrifice that Jesus did for her on the cross.

She is grateful for the people who have stood by her throughout her journey. “My spiritual family served as lamp posts,” she shares, “As they pray with me, cry with me, and believe with me, I receive enough light to continue walking.” For her, the Christian life is not meant to be lived alone. Having experienced the true value of belonging to a spiritual family, Adette has put it in her heart to continue reaching out, mentoring and raising other leaders. From someone who used to thirst for love and peace of mind, Adette is now a testament of God’s overflowing love and it is exactly this love that allows her to give herself to others.

Claud and Theo

Believing for the Impossible

Claud's weddingTheo Cañeda didn’t expect to meet the love of his life during the time that his business was going bankrupt. When he was introduced to Claud by a common friend in church, he was smitten. “I found out that she works in the church,” he shares, “and I was attracted to how devoted she was to her calling.” Without a regular job, his finances were in shambles, which made him hesitant to court Claud. Nevertheless, he prayed for her, gathered his courage, and pursued her. The two started a relationship, and eventually talks of marriage

started coming up. By the end of 2014, they were engaged. “We decided to get married,” Theo says. “Despite the challenges, we knew we wanted to get married.” At the start of 2015, the couple prayed and fasted for an overflow of provision for their upcoming wedding happening in a few months. Amidst their preparations and several months prior to their big day, Claud was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and a benign tumor called myoma. This is a condition that imbalances a woman’s hormones, leading to the formation of ovarian cysts. Claud and TheoClaud was crushed. She was about to get married, and was hearing of the very real possibility she would never have children. Theo was heartbroken at how the news saddened Claud so much, but he never lost hope. He comforted his future wife that he loved her, no matter what, and reminded her that God is sovereign. “A lot of tears were shed,” Theo reveals. “She even asked me if I want to push through with the wedding.” This ordeal brought the

couple closer than ever. They cried, prayed, and fasted together for God to deliver them. Faced with Claud’s condition, and with their wedding day approaching, Claud and Theo also realized they didn’t have enough money to cover their wedding expenses. The couple cried out to God, and He responded. Two months before their wedding, Theo’s business bounced back from bankruptcy and started doing well. Provision started pouring in, and before they knew it, they had more than enough to pay for the wedding they want. “Everything was covered,” Theo exclaims, “We were able to have a joyful, debt-free wedding!” Pregnant picAfter their wedding, the couple was in faith that they would have children, despite Claud’s condition. They consulted different doctors, who recommended procedures to make pregnancy possible for her. To their dismay, the procedures were very expensive. “We were on our knees believing God for the impossible!” Theo reveals. There were times Claud would think she was pregnant, but they turned out to be false alarms. The couple experienced a rollercoaster of emotions. Then suddenly, the couple’s world rocked further when Claud’s father passed away. Amidst their grief and frustration, Claud and Theo clung to God more. “The Lord will replace anything we’ve lost,” Theo declared. It was a slow and painful journey, but God soon provided a silver lining. A month after Claud’s father passed away, the couple found out that Claud was pregnant. The two were ecstatic, but they decided to keep the information secret until a doctor confirmed their discovery. After her check-up, the doctor did confirm that Claud was indeed pregnant, and they weren’t having just one baby, but two! Claud was pregnant with twins! twinsIn a few weeks, by faith, Claud will give birth to two healthy babies. “I have just experienced the goodness and faithfulness of God first hand,” Theo declares, “He made me experience a miracle only He can make! Indeed, we can dare to believe God for the impossible!” Update (June 27, 2016): We are so excited and pleased to let you all know that Claud gave birth to two absolutely adorable baby girls! We celebrate God’s faithfulness and pray for the continued health and safety of the twins. Congratulations, Theo and Claud!

We are excited to let you all know that Victory Las Piñas will begin its regular weekly worship services, starting on July 3, 2016!

Last June 5, we held our first worship services at SM Southmall, located along the main thoroughfare of Alabang-Zapote. Two services at 9am and 11am welcomed hundreds of residents from villages and subdivisions in the area, as well as students and workers from nearby universities and offices.

Pastor Sonny and his team started scouting for a venue last year. After several months, God provided a venue in SM Southmall. Victory Las Piñas’s grand launch on July 3, Sunday, will be held at Cinema 6 on the third level of the mall. This Metro Manila location will hold worship services at 9AM and 11AM.

As Victory Las Piñas heeds the call to honor God and make disciples in the South, let us intercede and believe God for open doors to families, campuses and business establishments, so we can witness more Filipinos in this city come to the saving knowledge of Jesus.
