31 January 2010 SM Mall of Asia, Manila Philippines. There were over 50,500 runners participated on Isang Araw Lang: Takbo para sa Libreng Kolehiyo, a big time event organized by Sports 37. This event was held to raise funds to sustain the free college education program that Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel “Kuya” Razon have spearheaded.
The event was indeed a huge success with GOD’s help. I am looking forward to more projects like this that would support the noble endeavours that Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel have. Once again the unity among the brethren, family and friends resulted into something great just like the other events for Isang Araw Lang campaign.
Today marks the 73rd Birthday of Bro. Eli Soriano. Thanks be to GOD for loving and caring for him everyday.
Aside for Bro. Eli celebrating his 73rd birthday, today is also the 2nd day of Thanksgiving celebration of all the Members of the Church of GOD International, yes, international meaning in many parts of the globe.
Mt. Arayat is a volcano situated in the Central Luzon region in the Philippines. Specifically, Mt.Arayat is located in the town of Arayat that is situated in the northern part of Pampanga. On the map, Arayat is surrounded by other towns, Magalang, Cabiao, Candaba, Sta. Ana, and Mexico Pampanga respectively.
Historically, there is no recorded eruption for Mt. Arayat. Aside from being a great tourist destination itself, in Mt. Arayat lies other tourist destinations. At some point in the year 1970’s, Mt. Arayat National Park has been constructed. It has swimming pools, picnic areas and trail that would lead to the mountain first peak. Somewhere in the volcano lies the White Rock, that is another known tourist destination. Also, at the foot of Mt. Arayat lies the Pampanga river.
Aside from being a go-to place for the tourist, Mt. Arayat is also a place where mountain climbers go to. It is said that it would take a day plus a couple of hours to reach the summit of the mountain.
Philippines is a country known for many things. Filipinos are known to be one of the hardworking, hospitable races in many places.
Philippines is a country that is rich in natural resources and has many beautiful places and tourist spots.
Being a Filipino, there are many reasons to be proud of. But personally, I only have one, and one reason only to be proud about being a Filipino.
With the mercy and love from GOD, I am glad that I have seen the day that I discovered Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) the longest running religious program on Philippine tv.
Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) is not a religion but a religious program on tv and on radio. It is being hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano.
Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) is now on its 34th year and still counting with GOD’s help.
On the very first day, for the very first time that I watched Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) I started knowing the pure gospel of the LORD that eventually led to my decision to change join the true Church written in the Bible.
I am only proud to be a Filipino only because of my faith, and my faith only. I am a proud Member of the Church of GOD International.
Bro. Eli Soriano is a Filipino and I am a Filipino and for that, I praise and thank GOD eternally.
Believing and trusting the LORD is beneficial to one soul, body and mind. Whatever happens, never, ever doubt the love and care that GOD has for you, you just need to believe and have faith.
Remember, GOD is not stone hearted to let you suffer in times that you need HIS help. GOD is not forgetful to forget the good things that you are doing with HIS help and will. GOD is graceful to shower you with gifts and blessings, more than you can ask for.
We may not completely understand the things that are happening to us, but regardless, you should have faith and trust in GOD that everything will fall into place.
That all sadness would turn into joy. All tears will be wept away and eventually there will be no more. That sacrifices and hardships will all be gone.
And most importantly, the longing and wishing to see the glorious moment to finally meet the Creator will soon be over.
