|Tell us about your family. How do you feel about relocating?||
Grew up in a small family as we were only 5 members in the household. But now I am living independently and visits family or stays on vacation.
|How old were you when you were drawn to Christ and how is your Christian walk these days?||
I was born RC since my mother is a practicing RC. but I started to join a protestant Christian fellowship/church during teenage around 15 yrs old, since my father who was an atheist ridiculed the RC tradition saying they are worshiping man-made saints which is wrong. (by god’s grace) I sought God even if I always hear my father insisting that there is no God by contrasting his belief on Science.
So this led me to ask my protestant high school classmate if I can join their church fellowship (‘coz in my thoughts, I will not be ridiculed of worshiping man-made saints in a protestant church). It was the start of my experience of joining bible studies and youth camps. So I was baptized before I went to college around 16 yrs old. Those were the period where the word of God has been planted in me being in my youth with strong passion, vibrant enthusiasm.
But those days were the period of myself not fully grounded to His truth yet, nor stripped from my young carnal nature. I was able to join ministries at a young age like ushering and backup vocals for Saturday worship nights youth gathering. When I was 21 yrs old, I decided to join another local church to fully commit on joining because I felt the church I grew up with is a family church and is only conserved to members within their family tree. My decision was in good terms with my cellgroup leader since I was able to talk to her gave my sentiments to leave the church.
When I finally joined the local church that I transferred to, it was the way for the Lord to open my heart to a growing relationship with Him. I was able to find home in that church and the seed planted in me during my youth has been little by little grown in my heart. I truly believe that through life encounter with Jesus saving Grace that I can fully say I became a Christian. So, I cannot say I have a particular date and age on when I became a Christian but instead what I can say is my Christian faith is a spiritual journey.
To sum it all, it is only thru a personal encounter with Jesus that we can be truly saved, and not by only reading theological stands or information- I agree with the quote: “it is not the information but the transformation”.
Until now, I am still learning more and more of who God is and keeping my relationship aligned to His purpose and will.
My Christian walk is not a one-time transformation but a long spiritual journey until I learned to surrender my idolatries, recognized my sinful nature and depravity. His Word alone in the Bible provides me the guidance of how to live our Christian faith with the Holy Spirit as the teacher. I can enjoy the presence of Jesus as I established a personal relationship with Him.
We can keep His Word as our daily personal devotion. It is also important for me to be connected and be edified by fellow believers in a local church under the submission of a Pastoral leadership. Being obedient to God’s command which is to be a disciple of all nations – be a part to contribute in reaching out to spread the gospel to the unreached. It is for us to enjoy all these blessings and pass on the blessings to others.
|How have the Doctrines of Grace changed or affected your life?||
I am a reformed Christian. Christian faith is a free gift from the Lord that gives us the
–As a Christian living on this world, I will continue to keep my spiritual journey by fixing my eyes on Jesus
|Do you have a "Quiet Time?" What are you studying?||
I am working in mid-shift , so it is around dawn and when I am about to retire to sleep that there is no noise distractions or when everyone is asleep that I can really enjoy my quiet time with the Lord.
I am studying the Bible which I’m currently reading through again doing my one year bible reading plan. I am also currently reading a book authored by our senior pastor and I have a book to read by John MacArthur and David Platt.
|Who is your favorite Biblical Character and why?||
if I am to choose only one Biblical Character, it is King David – because he is a musician and God use him one as the contributor of Psalms and I am into music and singing of praise to the Lord with stringed instruments.
|Are you content being single? Why? If not, why?||
Yes I am content being single, since I was able to stay single for several years after I ended my relationship in the past. I believe the Lord has enabled me to stay single and gave me a heart that was content not to seek for a partner for a specific period of time which is I believe was His will for me since I was able to commit to participating in church activities for the sake of evangelism and ministry that married people will not be able to commit. I became active f0r several ministries that participates in passing on the gospel to lost souls in outreaches. But please don’t be mistaken if it may sound like that I am bragging about it because I am not – For the reason that all of my participation was all because of His grace that enabled me to enjoy it and without His grace, I can never do it nor respond to His calling.
I don’t know when will I stay single and when will the Lord continue to use my singleness for His glory but last January of this year 2021, the Lord gave an impression to open my heart again for relationship that will be according to His Will and for me to pray constantly for a possible lifetime partner. That is why I am here for me to give a try on connecting for a possible connection to someone that is of same grounds to my theological stand and may the Lord be the one to lead.

4. Snobbish at first impression by some who does not know me closely (because it is only an outward look due to the nature of the melancholic kind of temperament who does not smile right away on first acquaintances.
|What are three things you are most thankful for?||
1. God’s blessing of giving Free Air to breathe in to my lungs each day
2. God’s blessing of giving me taste buds and an appetite to eat good food
3. God’s blessing of not allowing me to be in a ill physical condition, that I can wake up each day able to function with my hands and feet to enjoy walking, running, do workouts and all chores needed without assistance. (we will never know when we will be weak, and even some people cannot function wished they can do normal things like we do. So I am always thankful to the Lord each day)

|Other than your parents, who has been the most influential person in your life and how?||
Currently, there are several influential people in the area of spiritual leadership who I look up to. But I am not going to name them because I only fix my eyes on Jesus as my rock and my foundation. These leaders that had contributed to my knowledge and understanding of the scriptures are in my heart to give gratitude for. They are the ones who are used by the Lord to evangelize and give their life for the sake of the gospel. But I am always keeping it in mind that everyone of us may fail and has limitations, and we are not to regard them as people that is the influence of who we can be because we might be discouraged by their flaws. What we can do is to put them in prayers continually for the Lord to give them the perseverance till the end. And we only look upon Jesus to stand firm in our faith.
