They would often ask is there a time when I got bored listening to him and I replied no!

By discovering the program of Bro Eli, it had helped me a lot on how to deal with the kid’s mood. He just wanted attention.  A year had passed that I have not noticed I have survived  the kid’s attitude. 

By Nitz Rivera

I was in 4th year high school when I came to know the program “Ang Dating Daan”. Like anyone who had a hard time sleeping,  I would normally watch all the programs on television until  it signs off. One night, as I was scanning the channels,  I stopped to listen to this preacher reading the Bible. I was amazed about his way of answering questions based on the Bible. It aired at RJ 29 back then. It was an on and off tuning.

I took a vocational course, Computer Secretary, but I stopped because we don’t have enough money for me to continue.  Although we had small business – selling siopao on the streets, it would not get through school. One time I heard my parents discussing about our financial situation. That was the time that I had decided to stop school  and work instead.  I started working at a doll company at the age of 16.  The reason for me in getting into work is for me to be able to support my studies. But it did not materialized because I got hooked on working and earning money. My older sister advised me to take another job where she was working. I was hired to be a nanny of an 8 year-old kid, naughty and temperamental.  If he was not satisfied on what he is requesting, he pinched and spank me. It was the naughtiness of this kid that his  nannies did not last.

By discovering the program of Bro Eli, it had helped me a lot on how to deal with the kid’s mood. He just wanted attention.  A year had passed that I have not noticed I have survived  the kid’s attitude.

Listening to the music is my way of relaxation. Love songs that came out of my little radio  that  is playing until I fell asleep.  Running the same old love songs over and over again made me bored. I decided to tune in to the AM band and a familiar voice stopped me for a second. I turned the volume up so I can catch the voice clearly.  It was the voice of Bro Eli Soriano.  I was just so hooked up that  I want to hear it every night. I cannot wait to go home for that program. I fell in love and wished  that someday, they would be airing it on a daytime. Even my friends and co-workers would often ask is there a time when I got bored listening to him and I replied no.

I requested for a vacation and they had granted it. Our house is just a walking distance from the market. But at that time, I decided to ride on a tricycle, at the backseat. Being away from home for a long time makes my eyes wander around. As I was having fun looking at nature, my eyes  had caught something. It was one of the Coordinating Centers of Ang Dating Daan. I was amazed by it.  The next day, I decided to drop by the place. it was a Friday. A lady entertained me upon informing her that I was an avid listener of the program. He said that I can come back by Monday for the  opening of Mass Indoctrination. She was so accommodating. But at the back of my mind, I was not sure. But I said I will try.

The other day, I came back and even managed to bring my sister along with me. She declined the second time I asked her because her husband was not informed. But I think there are other reason. The only thing that I am worried is what am I going to wear. I don’t have a job at that time. But immediately, I had remembered what Bro. Eli had said that nothing is impossible with God. Truly, I got another job and managed to buy skirts. The day of my baptism, upon setting my feet in the Convention Center, I was amazed. I felt strange like I was in a holy place. I thank God for calling me to be part of this congregation, the Members Church of God International.
