I am Sarah Mae M. Aroy of Locale of Tagum City in Mindanao. With God’s grace, I’ve been in the Church for two years now and member of the Teatro Kristiano
I am a former Catholic follower. I was raised by my parents having fear in God although we did not have an idea that what we believed in was not the true faith taught in the Bible.
I actually had no idea about the true Church and the true teachings of God before. I thought every church or religious group in the world was right and salvation can easily be attained by anybody through good deeds regardless of what church they belonged to.
There was an incident in our family that led my mother and two brothers to have known the CHURCH OF GOD INTERNATIONAL and soon became members of it.
One of my brothers, Bro. Ulysses Aroy, who was my bitter enemy and considered before as the “black sheep” of the family was the one used by God for me to be able to have and idea about the true Church and doctrines of the Lord.
Being a member of the CHURCH OF GOD INTERNATIONAL or “ANG DATING DAAN” as known to the public, my brother shared to me some of things he had learned regarding faith. He told me about Bro. Eli Soriano and some biblical prophesies proving that the organization of “ANG DATING DAAN” is the only organization following the right teachings of God these days.
My brother invited me to attend the indoctrination that was to be held here in the locale of Tagum City. Without my hesitation, I accepted his invitation and started listening to the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ through Bro. Eli Soriano.
As the indoctrination went on, there were so many things I learned, especially regarding faith and serving the true God. My mind was opened up; my heart was enlightened and so I decided to be baptized and be a member of the Church.
I still couldn’t believe that I would listen and believe in what my brother, Ullei, was sharing to me, knowing the fact that I really hated him so much because we were bitter enemies as I said. But as time passed by, with the teachings of God being taught to us every now and then, I realized and learned to believe that it was the power of the words of God that brought me here and made me stay in the Church up to this present time of my life.
I am very much thankful to God Almighty who called me and my family by his grace and great love. I’m very much thankful to God for sending Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel in this present times to open the minds of many people who have been blinded by many false prophets and pastors around the world. I thank God for everything in my life forever.
