enchanted 28th Birthday


It never comes to my mind on how to spend my 28th birthday …just to pass this simple day and that’s it. But this lunatic idea brought us in the Manila Ocean Park. I know im kind of too late for this to experience, never had a chance to visit this place before. Rather than to spend enormous money for parties or out of town escapades, it’s better to share this special day of mine with my original family. There will be no extension members allowed. LoL! hehehehe


I am providentially (well if not) one of those people believing that’s there’s really a magical world under the sea. With all those sea creatures around that’s really amazing! Impressive!

I will not going to elaborate so better to stop myself before this becomes a review of the Manila Ocean Park… if you are interested you can browse the entire pictures at my birthday album in facebook.

As I turned 28 on that day, I just wanted to share this very simple celebration of mine and I realized true happiness comes in a very simple way, not all the glamour of branded stuffs around or the specific hotspot locations will give you extravagant satisfaction in the end .. it’s the family! That matters. Togetherness throughout the years!

More years to go for me..hopefully by His grace!

I usually check my tragsqatar.com inbox every morning, normally I ignore some mails which is not so important to start my workload until yesterday.. this particular e-mail took my first fifteen minutes to read. And it served as my personal message for my Thursday Devotional.


Let me share to you this wonderful testimony and leave this bible verse as highlight of God's message.



I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.

Mark 11:23-24 (New Living Translation)




*Testimony of Renisha’s healing*

Dear Friends,


First and foremost let me begin my testimony by Praising and Thanking our Mighty Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for coming into my and in the life of my family and working mighty miracles through Bro.Johnson, words cannot express through this email. Friends I want to share with you all how I and my family experienced Lord Jesus and how Jesus healed my little angel baby Lemuela Renisha.

My name is Rainer (residing in Kuwait ) and this is my testimony – my wife Nisha delivered a little angel baby girl on 22nd March 2010. Due to the sudden raise in blood pressure, doctors performed Cesarean to deliver the child at 5 and half months, the birth weight of baby was only 620 grams. When I saw my baby first time I was totally stunned, she was so small, with full of wires on her body. She has been shifted to NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) immediately after birth and had been kept on incubator (is a

machine through which the temperature is controlled) and ventilator (is a machine which supports breathing); I can’t imagine that sight again. When I met the doctors, the only thing they could say, most of the inner organs mainly lungs are not matured so the survival chances are very less, I said in my mind God this child is your gift and I know surely you will take care of her. My wife got discharged from hospital after 6 days of delivery. I

thanked God for getting my wife home because even her life was in danger but only the prayers and God’s Grace saved her. We came home, but our little angle was in NICU fighting for each breath. Days started moving, in the first 15 days doctors found some positive developments in our baby. We could notice the positive attitude in doctors

who were treating my baby during these days. But, suddenly she developed a kind of infection named as pseudomonas, as per doctors it is one of the dangerous virus which infects the premature babies. And due to the infection our baby has been shifted to Isolation room, and started anti biotic medicines.

After one month or so she was cured from infection and shifted back to NICU. You may think what we parents were doing all these days, we were praying to God, please heal our baby, please heal our baby, please heal our baby & please heal our baby nothing else. While days were moving we increased our prayer we asked each and every person whomever we met, please pray for our baby. I sent email to all my friends requesting to pray for my baby, before we used to go church once a week, now we started to go thrice a week,

started to attend novenas and holy hours. Every now and then doctors try to remove our baby from ventilator machine and she was not able to tolerate for more than five hours, so they will put her back on ventilator, after 3 months or so again she got infected by the

same virus and the antibiotic process went for 15 days and she got cured from that. After around 4 months doctors found some tissues developed in my baby’s throat because of that they are not able to remove the ventilator machine and they referred to one more hospital which is specialized in ENT (Zain hospital, Kuwait . Doctors from this hospital tested our baby and suggested for bronchoscopy test (it’s a kind of test where they insert a copper kind of pipe with camera in the throat and clear the extra tissues developed). They cautioned us during this test if baby faces difficulty in breathing they may go for tracheostomy (opening the throat and inserting a pipe so that baby can breathe without the help of nose, directly from that pipe). Now we were worried so small kid, and we don’t know how much painful

is this test may be and operation, no we did not wanted to get our baby operated for Tracheostomy but we were helpless but we were just praying God your will be done. We know that you will not leave our hand. The day came and we went to the hospital with the Farwaniya hospital team, they took our baby to the operation theater, we were waiting outside and praying to god please save our baby from operation, I called my parents and in laws asking please pray our baby, she is in the operation theater, I called a preacher

in mangalore Br. Rony he also prayed over phone, one hour passed doctors came out and thank God they said that they did the test successfully without operation. Doctors assured us that moment that in two days they will extubate our baby from ventilator and she will be fine. And the same thing happened also and we got hope again that our baby is out of ventilator now, but after a day when we saw our baby she was back to ventilator again and we were shocked to see this scene again and we don’t know how much we cried that day and all the nurses were trying to console us from inside through hand signs. Days started moving and when baby was around 5 and half months old she got infected with the same virus called pseudomonas and this time the effect was so bad, she was suffering a lot, we could make out through the sympathy the nurses showing towards us, and one of the doctor even said to my wife, your baby is suffering a lot you should rethink about the baby, just take some decision and talk to doctors. Why you want to see her suffering like this. Imagine what my wife would have felt that moment. But still both of us me and my wife told to each other that we will not take any decision neither we will talk to doctors God knows what to be done now and he will surely show us a way. Again the antibiotic started for 15 days and she started recovering but couldn’t come out from ventilator, doctors were giving only

one reason her lungs are not matured, but meantime we could read on their face that they were also worried coz this is the only baby was there in the NICU for more than 6 months in that Hospital.

Meantime we started asking God Lord teach us how to pray if our way of praying is not right. It was September and there was Novena for Infant Mary in Ahmadi Church Kuwait for the first time in Konkani. Me and my wife attended all 9 days novena and every day we put intention for our baby’s recovery. Same thing was going on in our native place too our parents and relatives and friends all were praying for our baby. During this time Fr.Alban came from India and he even visited our baby who was very sick during that time and tried to strengthen us with Lord’s words. Days passed by one fine day, a person told us about Br. Johnson’s retreat in Kuwait and he told us that why don’t you attend once. I told ok let me see and me and my wife both attended. The retreat was in Hi Dine Hall, Abbassiya on 18th September 2010, it was Saturday. The preaching that day was all about “*Mark 11: 23 to 24,* *23*I assure that whoever tells this hill to get up and throw itself in the sea and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. For this reason I tell you when you pray and ask for something, believe that you have received it, and you will be given whatever you ask for”. That day I realized that, all these times in my prayers I used to use the second verse without the first verse. This is the first time lord opened my eyes through this man of God. If we pray without faith which is not

according to the word of god, that prayer will not get answered and we blame God for not answering us but the truth is he already said in his word whatever you ask in faith will be given unto you. And after the retreat I met this Man of God and told him about my baby, he said do not worry she’s already healed, just thank Jesus for healing your baby and come and meet me tomorrow at so and so place. We went to meet him, that time he was counseling some body, we waited till he finished counseling , and then he asked what is the problem with our baby, we started explaining from beginning, this is what we used to do who ever ask about our baby. We used to tell the whole story. When we started telling the whole thing suddenly he told us to stop, I don’t want to hear about the past, let me tell you about the future. He gave one book to us and asked to repeat the first sentence in that book and here it goes “*I Am The Body of Christ And Satan has no power over me*” he told us to add our baby’s name instead of ‘I’ and make an image that our baby is already healed. We started repeating “Renisha is the body of Christ and Satan has no power no place over her”. We repeated this sentence hardly for ten minutes, I felt like a kind of heaviness was removed out from my head and I was feeling very light and my wife in her image saw

that our baby is sleeping on the bed in our bed room. Brother asked us to confess this sentence every moment and believe that our baby is already healed, thank Lord Jesus for healing our baby. That evening we went to the hospital and we saw our baby was on ventilator we said what we are seeing is not true, she is already healed in spiritual ramp and we kept on confessing Renisha is the body of Christ and satan has no power no place over her. That day evening again we attended Br. Johnson’s retreat with a joyful heart.

Next day morning as usual we went to the hospital and baby again was on ventilator, we knew in our sprit that she is already healed; we kept on repeating the same sentence again and again. After hospital visit we went to work. Day was passing and evening as regular practice we went to hospital to see our baby, and my friend now the time for miracle it happened in the natural. It was 21st September 2010, we saw our baby is breathing without

the help of ventilator machine, and doctor said this is the first time she’s tolerating without machine for a long time. He explained, morning they removed from the machine and she started breathing very easily and normally so they continued her without machine. Friends almighty Lord showed the power on what we confessed and kept faith on him. He showed he can do the miracle at any stage to anyone who believes completely on him. Nothing is

impossible to God. He is the only one who can turn all impossible things into possible things. That he showed us that he is the Most High God. I still remember a Muslim doctor said that, in all his experience of 12 years this is the first miracle I saw, when our science not able to do anymore, the mighty god showed his power and your baby came out from

ventilator machine and he continued saying, we (doctors team of almost 10 to 15) tried many methods and consulted many other senior doctors and consultants still we couldn’t find a single way to bring your baby out from ventilator machine, every time we tried and failed, and now when we left hope and stopped trying, see what the god done to your baby and he smiled. I saw such a broad smile towards us for the first time on his face after six

long months. And after five days doctors shifted our baby to SCBU (it’s a ward after NICU) with oxygen supply to her Incubator. And on 30th September after 4 days baby started breathing natural air without the oxygen supply. After few days doctors advised us to carry our baby in our hands and allowed mother to feed her own baby directly after 7 months of our baby’s birth. Praise the Lord!!! And we were thanking God for each and every moment because every day he was performing miracles in our baby’s life. From then exactly after a

month, our baby got discharged and the day was 17th of November 2010. It was the happiest day in our life that by the Grace of God our baby came home after a long wait of 8 months. “God allowed this to happen coz he wanted to show the whole world that how much he loves the mankind”, these are the words spoken by the priest Fr. Albert who baptized our baby on 18th December 2010.

When my baby was in hospital I used to think these things happened to my baby because of my/forefather’s sins, and I realized it was a wrong thinking when I read the word of God in *John 9* *:* *1* As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been born blind. *2*His disciples asked him “Teacher, whose sin caused him to be born blind? Was it his own or his parents sin?” * 3*Jesus answered, “His blindness has nothing to do with his sins or his parents sins. He is blind so that God’s power might be seen at work in him.


Dear friends, I am sharing this testimony with you all so that we all should understand that whenever our prayers not get answered or gets delayed, our faith starts shaking, and we question the existence of God, I did the same thing. And now surely I can tell you when the Most High shows up the most low (sickness/disease) has to leave, he sent his person to preach the word of God and we believed that word and that word brought in us the

manifestation. My Dear, when the doctors in this world say we can’t do anything more, the doctor of doctor’s will take over the battle if we believe and keep faith completely in him. When he is in action no medicine no operations required, any kind of disease will vanish like a blink of eye, every test will be proved negative, coz he is the creator of heaven, earth,

you and me. God never want anyone to be in sickness or pain but we need to take one step towards him and rest he will take care.

I conclude my testimony by thanking all of you for remembering our baby in your prayers and we pray to the same Jesus who healed our Baby Lemuela Renisha completely, to cast away every sickness, worry and fear from you and your family in Jesus Holy Name. Amen!


Lord Jesus I pray who so ever reads/shares this testimony for your glory, bless them and all their loved one O Lord, may your precious blood cover them all O Lord and heal from every sickness and every bondage and financial problems. Biblical confessions: Concerning Worry & Fear (Confess every day) I am the body of Christ and satan has no power over me. For I overcome evil with good. I am of God and have overcome satan. For greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me Lord. Your Word and Your Spirit, they comfort me. I am far from oppression and fear does not come near me. No weapon formed against me shall prosper, for my righteousness is of the Lord. But whatsoever I do will prosper, for I’m like a tree planted by the rivers of water. I am delivered from the evils of this present world, for it is the will of God concerning me. No

evil will befall me. Neither shall any plague come near my dwelling. For the Lord has given His angels charge over me, and they keep me in all my ways. And in my pathway is life and there is no death. I am a doer of the Word of God and I am blessed in my deeds. I am happy in these things, which I do because I’m a doer of the Word of God. I take the shield of Faith and I quench every fiery dart that the wicked one brings against me. Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law; therefore I forbid any sickness or disease to come upon this body. Every disease, germ, every virus that touches my body dies instantly, in the name of Jesus. Every organ, every tissue of my body functions in the perfection to which God created it to function, and I forbid any malfunction in my body, in the name of Jesus. I am an over comer and I overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of my testimony. I am submitted to God and the devil flees from me because I resist him in the name of Jesus. The Word of God is forever settled in heaven, therefore I establish his Word upon this earth. Great is my peace (the peace of my children), for I am (they are) taught of the Lord. I am

(they are) protected. I am (they are) wealthy. I am (they are) healthy. I am (they are) anointed, whole, nothing missing, nothing broken in my life (the

lives of my children) *Amen*.



God will make a way....

Psalm 100:3







VERSE 1:
God of my youth I remember

On this altar I've written my life
Tells of a story I have with You my Lord
I want the world to know

And forever I will sing
My greatest honor will always be
To serve my Lord and King

God of my all I've surrendered
My heart finds it's rest in Your word
Praises will not be enough to show
How my love for You has grown
Nothing matters when You're here with me

Bowing before your throne


BRIDGE:
Forever and ever
Jesus You alone in glory reign
Forever and ever
With You I walk this narrow way

Buhay Doha, buhay paglilingkod! my experience...


After several seasons in deep hibernation whew!!! 2 or 3 years since i started to blog something and walla naconceived nga itong blog na'to. And after several seasons of attempts to update some post but ngayon lang nagkalakas loob to do it! its a big step for me.. hehehe.. Hindi naman lingid sa karamihan on how our family involvement in the ministry. A ministry na paglilingkod sa ating Panginoon. Well actually its not the country nor the people na naculture shock ako when im just a newbie here in Qatar seven years ago, but how i truly amazed on His people working beyond their secular jobs. Kumbaga sa mga nakasama kong mga elders and leaders of this church nakita ko ang init ng paglilingkod, At higit sa lahat nakita ko ang mga kalagayan ng ilan sa mga grupo ng ating mga kababayan at pangangailangan na sa mga panahon na tulad nito specially sa lugar ng disyerto there's still of hope of much greener pasture which is the word of God. I do remember our head pastor during that time, darating ang araw ikaw at kayo naman ang magpapatuloy ng mga gawain. Be equipped first, equipped of what? Experience! your own experience. Masarap maishare ang mga sariling karanasan on how God works on you and most of all paano mo napagtagumpayan ang mga pagsubok, mga problema, kasiyahan atbp. Kaya nais kong ibahagi ang ilan sa mga karanasan namin sa paglilingkod.

Ambitious self desire, right after graduation that was 2004 yan ang laman ng aking puso't isipan. To land a high paying job, sa mga kabataan tulad ko at sa mga bagong graduate natural lang naman maghangad ng mga ganun bagay kumbaga its our goal. Lagi sinasabi sa akin ni Dad, pagkagraduate mo tuloy ka na kaagad dito, kaya expected ko na makakapunta ako kaagad dito at siyempre sa wakas makakasama ko na sina Dad at ang family ng araw araw, dati rati kasi every other year lang kami nagkikita at nagkakasama. Around June, when i took my first international flight as expected kausbungan ng kainitan sa Middle East. Natanong ko sa sarili ko, paano nakatagal ang mga sinaunang mga tao sa kalagayan ng ganitong init sa lugarin ito. Ang init sa labas! , kinabukasan ng gabi may jetlag pa ako, sinama kaagad ako nina Dad sa kanilang gawain, sabi ko gawain saan? may pupuntahan tayong grupo ng mga kababayan. Ah i see, excited kasi first time to tour around the city and to meet kababayans is exciting..hehehe
Yun pala mag BS or Bible Study, nakita ko kaagad ang kaibahan sa tinutuluyan namin bahay sa lugar na pinuntahan namin. Yes, grupo ng mga mangagawa ng isang lokal na kumpanya dito. Nakabumped ni Dad sa money exchange ng magpadala siya ng monthly remittance sa Pilipinas. Sa isang kuwarto ng ating mga kababayan, Matar Qadeem or Old Airport hindi masyado malayo sa may Jaidah Tower kung saan malapit kami nakatira that time, nagsisiksikan sa isang maliit na kuwarto ang mga walong katao, halos wala na kami madaraanan pero natuloy pa rin ang Bible Study. Dun sa unang pagkakataon nakita ko sa kanila ang kasabikan sa pag-asa na kahit sa kabila ng hirap, init at pagod. Sa unang pagkakataon, kinalibutan ako at tunay na nakita ko ang realidad ng isang pagpapagal ng isang ordinaryong OFW na nagtitiis para sa kinabukasan ng kanilang pamilya sa Pilipinas. And nakita ko pagkayari ng gawain ang effort nila na naghanda pa ng isang munting salo salo bilang hapunan, at puno ng pasasalamat sa pagpunta namin sa kanila time. Deep inside, im very thankful kay Lord sa unang karanasan na yon, Kaya kinabukasan which is thursday, sabi ni Dad get ready we will be heading sa isang lugar sa AL KHOR. may kalayuan sa city proper mga around 40 0r 50 km. Ganun din ang aming naabutan, mga masasayang ngiti ng ating mga kababayans. Suddenly changed yung self desire ko dati naging secondary na lang, nagkaroon ako ng desire na maglingkod sa kanya, be involved in the ministry. And dami kong karanasan, masasabi kong hindi naging madali pero masaya ako dahil alam ko in the end just remain faithful may greater glory ibibigay si Lord. Alam nyo bang almost 1 year din ako walang permanent work. My resume doesn't say anything aside from im graduated as Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and supporting evidence is my Diploma, they said you dont have any work experience and your too young. That time i admit i was in a terrible situation parang its now or never situation, sabi ko Lord ayoko umuwing talunan ng walang nangyayari. Idagdag pa ang pangangailangang financial, in that time before your temporary business visa renewed kailan mo lumabas ng ibang bansa. If im already a privilege club holder that time, dami ko na air miles points at constant visitor ng Bahrain hotel. Salamat sa mga tumulong lalo na aming pastor, na sobrang ginamit ni Lord para maisayos ako dito. And eventually, i got this company, wherein nakapagbakasyon muna ako before i officially join, malalaman mo ang God's will pag smooth sailing lahat, wala na kami ginastos lahat sagot ng kumpanya. By the grace of God, now im counting few months to go i'll celebrate my 6 years in the company. Thank you Lord.

In the midst of that season sa aking buhay, tuloy lang sa mga gawain halos naikot ko na ata ang mga ibat-ibang gawain, well aside from preaching in one of the friday service. I think i need a lot of courage to do that, hehehe
Madami akong natutunan, our life doesnt end after 6pm or after work, there's another life to face and responsibilities to take. And God will bless you, will restore your strength, ni hindi mararamdaman ang pagod.


Larawan sa itaas kuha ng isang group ni Dad sa mga kababayan natin nagwowork sa CDC, sana pala mayroon na ako camera during the year of 2004. Anyways yung mga experience ko na yun are always remembered, nakatatak na sa akin.hehehe



Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths.”
(Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT)
In order to make significant changes in your life – to reach the goals that lead to those significant changes – you must depend on God's power and you must get others to partner with you.

Before tayong magtapos nais ko ishare muli sa inyo ang isang video, na ishare ko na sa facebook,

it's Start in here.......


Lets start this unfresh idea of having a blog by introducing myself....

GERALD FONTANILLA BALUYOT...

Well actually i am Junior version of my father. And thats why my nickname is JR, very obvious isnt? Youngest in the family of three and was born last May 23, 1983. And Yes you're right im 25 years old now. Lets say at that age bracket i have so many experiences in life which are very remarkable yet unfulfilled pa rin coz i didnt meet pa rin my love partner... hehehe naiinip na. Pero as they always say naman God provisions will come at the right time.

My father told me just recently that they wasn't expecting another baby that time., he mentioned several reasons: 2 is enough, 2 is the reason why he pushed himself to work abroad for a certain period as the original plan. My mother is above 40 and difficulty of pregnancy is at high risk due to health reason. After they tried to get rid of me ,,,huhuhuhu... they didnt succeed coz im here and theres nothing they can do but to welcome me in the family. Buti na lang no discrepancy of my parts as a whole ... hehehe (brain damage ata hahahah!!!!) aside from minor heart problems but indeed nawala din. As the only one poging anak kaya Junior ako... And we are happy family, eventhough once in two years my father used to went home for short vacations. Me and the rest are in the hands of my loving Mama but unfortunately my mother passed away due to breast cancer. I am just a little eight years old boy who just started to be in this life... certainly i was in grade 2. Learning is so fun as the kids must enjoy it and as for me laging excuse as a little sidekick of my mom used to go in Manila for her treatment. Wow... were a little bit dramatic na ang usapan natin... well im just want to emphasize of the short time i spent with my mother and it really unforgettable. And as i growing up (physically medyo bumagal tlga) normal childhood pa rin aside from it was never been like before...kaya we must cherish the moments we have in our parents, siblings as in ...we really can't turn back the old times. I felt isolation for family affairs like christmas, PTA meetings, graduation, personal care and so many things. Sarcastic naman if i called it trauma in life kaya in reality you cant find me socializing in public, super-friendly for that effect. But certainly once i stepped into.... whew you'll get rid of me - my jokes, my impersonating skills etc etc.... pero it should be not the real attitude of a Christian. Like many of us were trying to cope for our weaknesses --step by step as we grow under Him.


Right now im very happy aside from busy mode at office work plus the oppurtunity to serve Him. My life routine in Doha well at my succeeding post n lng...


God Bless
