Newly Baptized Testimonials: September 20, 2013

Read short testimonials of faith from some of MCGI’s youngest brethren baptized on September 20, 2013 at the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga.

Bro. Joselito Nuqui, 40, Former Catholic, Pampanga Province

On Being Baptized
My boss at work in Calamba just brought us to a [locale] to listen. But then I liked it. I feel as if all the [burden in my heart] is gone; I feel light when I got baptized.

On MCGI Leaders
I just thank Bro. Eli for all the pleasant things he says with regards to the Bible. Thanks Bro. Eli.

Bro. Mario Dalistan 52, Former Catholic, NCR

On Being Baptized
I’m certain I feel good now; I feel warm. My sins have really been cleansed. Before I was immersed in water, I really repented of the sins I committed.

I started watching [The Old Path] on UNTV around 2010. However, when I had a problem at home, I stopped, until someone invited me again here.

The first week I got indoctrinated, I wasn’t able to join them as I didn’t have even a little pocket money. I was thinking, “What if we should get separated”?

I didn’t know that this place would be this big. I was surprised and I said, “This is big.” Then, a sister said to me that I should try again listening to Bro. Eli. So I started with the Bible Exposition again, until I attended the indoctrination, until I’m here now in Apalit.

On MCGI Leaders
To Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, may you have longer lives, and many more people to help be enlightened. Thank you.

Sis. Belinda Garcia, 40, Former Catholic, Cavite Province

On Being Baptized
Of course I’m happy. It’s like everything is clear now, and it feels different and light.

Before when I listened to Bro. Eli, I turn it off immediately because I didn’t like him then. But lately, when my husband got us cable, he was able to watch the Bible Exposition. It’s like he’s been to all the Born Again groups. My husband also entered Iglesia ni Cristo. As for me, I stayed Catholic. But it was only there [The Old Path] that we heard the explanations that were different from all the rest, like this is the truth we said.

So my husband went to Salitran as we live in Cavite. He really searched for the locale because I said, “There’s The Old Path in Salitran,” as I passed by that. He went there and he was referred to a [locale] in Dasmariñas. That’s when our listening started. Then we said, “This is really the right one.” My husband was the first to become a member than me.

On MCGI Leaders
May their lives be longer that they may help many more. May many more return to God.

Bro. Jun Leal, 42, Former Baptist, Cavite Province

On Being Baptized
I actually began listening to Bro. Eli in 1996, but it’s only now that I got the chance [to become a member]. Also, I only understood the more [the teachings] when I went to Saudi.

I had company there who were brethren and gave me links on the Internet. I asked them, “Besides debates, is there anything else I can watch, like the teachings?” So they gave me links on the Internet, and that’s when I saw it.

Until I got home here in the Philippines, I listened, until I found the locale where I can attend. After one year, I pursued with the [indoctrination].

On MCGI Leaders
May the Lord continue to delight in them, give longer lives to Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel. Thanks be to God.

Sis. Consolacion Ilano, 74, Former Catholic, Cavite Province

On Being Baptized
I feel happy and light. I’ve been listening to [The Old Path] on radio since my 50’s. It was on DZRH on Manolo Favis’ [program]. That’s where I first listened as I had a son who was a radio engineer.

On MCGI Leaders
I’m thankful that I met Bro. Eli Soriano. He’s the only one in the whole world, in my age of 74, that is a preacher who teaches all the teachings; He gave it all.

Sis. Nenita Sebastian, 43, Imus, Catholic

On Being Baptized
I’ve been listening to Bro. Eli since I was a child, but my father prohibited it. He was very strict when it comes to religious matters. We were Catholics, and he was so adherent to being Catholic that he doesn’t watch anything else.

After some years, I listened again as my father died already. That’s when I decided to listen to Bro. Eli again; later on, I decided to get indoctrinated.

I’m happy; the feeling is good. I really felt that my sins have been washed out I feel pleasant; it’s really different. I feel light.

On MCGI Leaders
To Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, may God give them longer lives and may they be able to continue preaching the words of God that many more will return to God like us.

Bro. Tetsuya Hasegawa, 15, Former KNC, Pampanga Province

On Being Baptized
It feels good. It feels good to be a brother in the Church. I got indoctrinated because I want to serve God. My parents and older brother supported me, and I feel pleasant inside.

On MCGI Leaders
Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, thanks be to God that I became a member of the true Church.

Bro. Donato Rodriguez, 45, Former Catholic, Cavite Province

On Being Baptized
I’m thankful because the Lord allowed for us to be baptized. Although it’s only a short time that we’ll be here because I’m just on vacation, so the Lord willed for me to be here with my wife, my sister-in-faith.

Many thanks to the brethren, firstly to the Lord God. Without a doubt, we’re really so happy. May the Lord guide us. As we age, may we be more worthy for His righteousness.

On MCGI Leaders
Bro. Eli, I hope that you will continue what you started because for every day that the Lord gives, there are many souls being saved. May God give you more strength, and may the congregation grow more and more, be stronger and stronger in faith.

Sis. Sonia Rodriguez, Former Catholic, Cavite Province

On Being Baptized
I’m really thankful because God granted this time for me and my husband. It’s like God prepared us for this day, because I had my indoctrination way back in July, but I wasn’t able to go on with baptism.

But then, he came home this August, so this is really the right time I believe for us to grow in faith together.

When it comes to Bro. Eli, I watch UNTV everyday. It was fifteen years ago when we watched the debates of Bro. Eli against the INC and other religious [leaders]. It’s like our understanding grew and grew.

So with that, I matured watching on TV. It’s like the Lord used the media for us to grow in faith, as a whole family. Actually, our whole family has undergone indoctrination. But it’s us who are first to be baptized. May the Lord will for our children to be next.

On MCGI Leaders
For Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, may they stay healthy and may the Lord always delight in them and guide them more that they may lead many people to save them from the coming tribulation.

May each soul be ready and overcome trials and sufferings that they may also experience this joy that we feel now. Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel are the perfect instruments of God [among men now] to share the good news and give justice to the Bible’s interpretation.

Bro. Romeo San Juan, 63, Born Again, Manila

On Being Baptized
I’ve joined many religions. First was Jehovah’s Witnesses, then Born Again; I also became a member of the El Shaddai. But now I saw that this religion is the one that adheres to what’s in the Bible. The doctrines really cleaved to my heart, that’s why I decided to get baptized at once.

On MCGI Leaders
My message to Bro. Eli is that until he has strength, until he has life, may he continue to preach until many more people are lead here, in the true faith.

Bro. Archie Altiche, 18, Former Catholic, Manila

On Being Baptized
I’m happy. It’s like all the worries in my mind, all my problems are gone.

I was able to watch the Bible Exposition on TV. Then I had a problem with my father. He reprimanded me, so I went to the Coordinating Center. He plans on joining the Church but he doesn’t yet want to because he might not be able to commit since he’s busy running the bakery.

On MCGI Leaders
Many, many thanks. Because of you, I learned the word of God. At first, I had a hard time reading the Bible because the Tagalog there is deep; I’m Ilocano. May the Lord give them longer lives.
