I grew up in the Philippines and my parents were both Filipinos. l am the third child among my siblings. I remember when my father brought me to a Seventh-day Adventist Church for the first time. I was very confused because most of my childhood friends went to church on Sunday. When I became an adult, I experienced worldly things and stopped attending church.
Many years later, my father contacted me and told me that he wanted to take me to the Oak Harbor Seventh-day Adventist Church. Because of God’s great timing, we heard that Pastor Kevin Scott was conducting a Bible seminar entitled “Keys to Bible Prophecy”. I thought that was God’s great opportunity for me to come back to Jesus Christ so I attended with my father, aunt, uncle, and my grandma.
Pastor Kevin Scott was very passionate when explaining and preaching. God used Pastor Kevin as an instrument for me to be enlightened and know the truth. The first time I attended the meeting, I already felt welcome and comfortable. Then the Holy Spirit made me realize everything. That’s why I decided to be baptized and follow the commandments of God and be one of those who will inherit the kingdom of God for his second coming.
Because of sin, all of us are vulnerable. We cannot predict when our life will end. While we have some time left to live in this sinful world, I encourage you to spend time, even a minute, to read the Holy Bible everyday of your life for you to discover the truth. l am happy and blessed that I accepted Jesus as my true King and Savior. I pray that my other brothers and sisters, relatives and friends will also be imparted and enlightened by the truth through the word of God in the Bible.
