I grew up hearing the name Pastor Apollo Quiboloy at home, from my family who were the first to enter the Kingdom. I remember that as a child of six years old, I would sing “God’s Kingdom,” trying to copy Sis. Jackielyn Roy as she sang the Kingdom anthem. But about Pastor himself, the famous and influential person, I knew nothing. Little did I know that one day, I would be given a change to meet the man and he would make a great change in my life.
When I was 13 years old, I was introduced to the Kingdom and had the privilege to be one of Pastor’s Gift of Education scholars. I was also given the chance to study in one of the most prestigious schools in Davao City, the Jose Maria College. This school was founded by Pastor Apollo himself.
Through the years growing up, I was given a chance to meet Pastor and listen to him preach boldly about the Will of God without hesitation and reservation for the salvation of our soul. I saw how Pastor is the very manifestation of the Father’s commandments about love.
I saw how he has fed thousands of children during the International Children’s Day, his very own birthday, which he has dedicated to all the children all over the world. I saw how he inspires young people through the Keepers Club International and teaches them the importance of living a life centered in the Father’s Will. I saw how he has cared for the environment that every year, thousands of trees are planted in different places in the Philippines and across the world through Sonshine Philippines Movement. I saw how Pastor, being the man of action that he is, is always the very first to extend help to those who are in need.
After witnessing all of these with my very own eyes, I said to myself that it is no wonder why Pastor Apollo Quiboloy was anointed and appointed by God in these last days. He is truly the model of goodness and excellence.
I have found real satisfaction here in the Father’s Kingdom, the kind of contentment that can only be found in serving the Almighty Father. I have learned how to be grateful and thankful for this life that God has given me. Most of all, I have learned to live a life of worth and value in the eyes of God and man.
It’s been 7 years since that day I decided to stay and offer my whole life to be used solely for the Almighty Father in the Kingdom and I have never regret the greatest decision I have ever made in my whole life. I am happy, I am blessed, I am grateful and I am proud that I am one of those youths who was called and was given a chance to know the Appointed Son, and become like him – committed, obedient, loyal and dedicated in serving the Almighty Father.
