Acquaintance Fellowship with Bro Eddie and Sis Dory

Friday, Jan 9, 2008.
7 PM-11 PM

Tonight we had a very special acquaintance fellowship with our beloved spiritual director Bishop Bro Eddie C. Villanueva and Sis Dory Villanueva.

Dinner was served and everybody had their fill. Pastors and Church Coordinators were seated with Bro Eddie and Sis Dory and enjoyed the Escabeche, Menudo,Chop Suey prepared by some brethren from JIL North Vancouver. The dinner was very delicious! Kudoz to the brethren from JIL Vancouver 1&2 and North Vancouver who prepared the food.

A video showcasing Bro Eddie's appearance at CBN was shown and afterwards Bro Eddie began his personalized talk. He began by informing the congregation that the Holy Spirit had changed his prepared outline.

The Spirit's moving was for the better of course! The congregation was privileged to hear Bro Eddie speak from his heart and pour out his passion for the Lord and for our beloved country, the Philippines. One could feel the activist spirit of Bro Eddie during the talk and especially during the question and answer portion.

Personally, as a young person, Bro Eddie stirred the passion in my heart to serve God and to serve my country. He showed me that there was hope for the Philippines regardless of what the current situation may appear to be. By using the story of Nehemiah, Bro Eddie exposed the reality that with the direction of the Holy Spirit, with righteous leadership present in the upper echelons of power, and with the Church alive, awake and ready to heed the Master's call for transformational ministry, revival and national renewal is at hand.

There is hope for the Philippines because there is a righteous leader in Bro Eddie! There is hope because the young people are ready to fight for change and reform and to not let the enemy usurp God's reign over every pillar of Philippine society. There is hope because Jesus is Lord!

God bless the Philippines! God bless Bro Eddie!

Marleen Ignacio's Testimony on Sunday Service Mass Anointing of Oil

This is one thing that we don't need to miss to read and at the same time praising God, bringing Him back the glory due to His Name of what he has done during the unforgetable Sunday Service. I was amazed with what she saw as Ptr. Gody was about to minister and began to anoint us with oil.
Sis. Marleen Ignacio is one of our JIL Newton Church Management Team and here is her testimony:

January 4, 2009 is another day of God’s manifestation in the life of His people. This is a great day for us; His follower as this is the day where the whole congregation will be anointed with oil. Even while Ptr. Gody is preaching and when he knelt down before God, I saw a vision at the top of the altar. There was a dove ready to fly down to the whole congregation. The revelation was clear to me; God is ready to pour out His mighty spirit among His people. He is just waiting for the perfect time. I received the infilling of the Holy Spirit through the anointing of oil ministered by our church pastor, Ptr. Gody Binalla. It was an awesome experience that I can’t do anything but kneel down and lift my hands as high as I can, surrendering my will and my life once again to my God. I felt a strong wind towards me as Ptr. Gody passed my way that I even said “whoa”. When he stand in front of me and anoint my forehead with oil, I began to feel a burning sensation from the tip of my fingers down to my shoulders and spine. My heart beat faster and I almost couldn't contain the very presence of God but I don’t want to miss out the message He has for me at that time. The word was given, “obey me and I will show you great things; things you never even thought or imagined”. My heart was pounding and my tears continue to flow from my eyes. I just could not say anything but “I will obey Lord, I will obey.”
