I have several testimonies, but I would only share one. We all have testimonies in our lives. We should not be timid to share them because this is God’s blessing in our lives.
In the year 2006, our Church had a feeding in Alabang, Muntinlupa. Our Church there started to feed people there, and because it grew, they asked help from the Cathedral. In a matter of three years, we were already feeding about 200 children already and less than a hundred adults. One of the priests who were with us said, “Deacon, kailangan natin ng simbahan dito.”
In one of our trips for this feeding, our L300 stopped when it reached the Alabang flyover. Because there was still the momentum, we were able to push the L300 going down to reach the toll. When I checked the van, there was no oil. We made arrangements so that the food may be brought to the feeding place.
The Skyway Patrol approached me and said, “Brod, kahit nasa gilid kayo, hahatakin pa rin yan at dadalhin sa Bicutan at maiimpound at magbabayad kayo ng Php2,500.” In a little while, a tow track, whose service is exclusively for their members only, came to us. I was surprised because the man from this tow truck said, “Brod, kung gusto ninyo, dadalhin ko kayo sa Alabang Town Center. Maraming parking doon at safe kayo doon.”
I obliged and we brought the van to Alabang Town Center. During the ride, we had a conversation. I found out that the man was from my hometown in Samar. The friends that he mentioned was known to me. Being comfortable with him, I told him that I need to bring the van to Sheridan. However, he had to go somewhere, but he promised that he would come back for me at 7 o’clock in the evening. He gave me his calling card. I came back at this time, but he did not show up. However, I was thankful that the van was in a safe place and that I did not have to pay any fee.
The following day, I asked my wife, Emee, to call the person whose name was in the calling card. I wanted to thank him that our van was safe in the parking lot in Alabang, and we did not have to pay Php2,500. Emee dialed the number, and she had the right company as written on the calling card, but the name written on it was not an employee of the company. Scriptures says, “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers because some of them are angels.”
This testimony shares with us that when we do the things of God, there will be miracles. I have several of them, but because of time, I can only share this. God is so good. If we only allow ourselves to be used by God, miracles will flow.
