Respect my personal space

As per dictionary, respect is due regard to the feelings, wishes, rights or traditions of others. It could be a deep admiration but I believe no one admires my person I think.

I have been living in Metro Manila since July 2015 along one of the streets of Pasig City. I have been to four (4) kind of jobs already since then. So I have been living as a bed spacer for almost five years now. The clamor of living solo in an apartment is still too expensive for me.

 

Duringthe first week of February 2021, I was deeply discourage the way people treat me. I was lying on my tiny bed space and yet this someone who's gay kept talking to me while on bed made me uncomfortable for sometime. 

I am glad that the issue was put to an end immediately after an incident and no more disturbances and that I am now able to maintain peace during bedtime.

Until we see each other again

I heard his voice on the radio airwaves sometime in year 2000 to 2001 when I was in my fourth year high school days. Searching for truth in religion and about the bible. Eventually, I was baptized in 2002 in the church and keep continuing today. God-willing, come March 12th, will be my 19th year in the church.

I met Bro. Eli personally when he was able to visit a Pasalamat celebration with fellow brethren in Isabela province sometime in late 2005. The venue was F.L. Dy Coliseum in Cauayan City, Isabela. That's before he finally go out of the Philippines due to some issues being perpetuated by detractors.


In 2009-2010, I became one of the recipients of the newly-launch tuition-free program of La Verdad Christian College in Apalit, Pampanga. I took AB Broadcasting, an undergraduate program. Although I was not able to complete the program, I feel lucky enough to part of this noble program. The program still runs until today, including the Caloocan campus in Metro Manila.

This year 2021, after hearing the news about the passing of Bro. Eli during an exclusive session, I feel the pain, I feel the loss of a loving father, I feel the loss of a faithful leader in the Church. But I will still continue until the end, until we see each other again, in the thousand-year reign of the Lord.
