Recently we received some testimonies from Balante Bible Church, a church we support in the Rizal area. Names have been changed for privacy.
“My name is Sherie 12 years old, I am in grade 7 at Morong National High School.
We are only three in the family, my brother, my father and me. Usually, I and my young brother are alone in our house for my father is always at work. My mother left us, so I am the one who’s doing house chores like washing our clothes, cooking and cleaning our house.
We learned about the feeding program from a friend, I joined the program, and I am blessed for not only we are being fed but taught of God’s Word also. From then on I started to love the Word of God, I want to learn more of Him. I have also the burden of sharing the Bible to others.
It is my dream to be a teacher. I want to help kids to learn. I also want to teach in Feeding Program and Sunday School.
The Feeding program is helping me a lot. I am learning to pray, read God’s Word, share His love to others, do what is right, ask for forgiveness and many more.
I want to finish my studies. I am praying that we remain healthy and that God may provide us with our needs.
I want to thank PPtB, CCI and all those who are helping the program.”
I am Lisa, 78 years old. I was devoted in my former religion; I am involved in their prayer meetings, prayer vigils for the dead and also doing novenas. I joined the feeding program as food preparation/cook volunteer. Along with it, I joined Bible studies and learned the Word of God. I learned a lot, I learned that what I was doing is not according to God’s Word; so, I left my former religion and joined in serving God through feeding program and learning His true Word.
Knowing God and His Word give me joy and happiness, even my daughter noticed that I have changed for the better and she is happy. I also felt strong, after suffering stroke, I feel I am young because of the physical healing that God gave me…”
“My name is Jenny, I am 12 years old, and I am in grade 6. We are seven in the family, including my parents. Only two of us are girls, I am the eldest. More often I am the one doing the laundry and the dishes. My father is a family driver, and my mother is a laundrywoman. I am blessed because our family is intact.
I love to o to school and learn, my teachers are kind and good to us. I am dreaming to become a doctor someday, so I can help my family and other people.
I also love to attend our church services and programs. In feeding program, we are studying God’s Word which changes my life. I use to curse and speak bad words, but now God changed me, I am now using my tongue to pray. I often pray that God help me to finish my studies. I also thank the Lord for the PPtB (Please Pass the Bread) feeding program because it is helping us with our health, it assures us the we will be fed everyday. I also thank our teachers in the program.”
“I am Wendy, 49 years old, a widow for 5 years now. I have three kids. My eldest wasn’t able to go to college because my husband died and I cannot sustain his schooling needs, he ofted to work to help me in providing for our needs while I am working as laundrywoman. My second child is Rhea, she’s in college now. I am grateful that she became scholar of STARFISH New Zealand. Sarah, my youngest is now in High School.
As of now, Rhea and Sarah are volunteer teachers in our Feeding Program sponsored by Please Pass the Bread, while I am a volunteer in food preparation and cooking. I am honored that I am able to serve God. I am also happy that I was able to help kids to eat vegetables which they don’t like before. They were stubborn but now they are changing for the better.
I thank God that He is always helping us in trials, He really never fails. I also thank the PPtB for giving me and my kids an opportunity to serve God.
May God continually bless us!”
