Battling One Disease After the Other—Is Healing Still Possible?

After all the pain she went through, Haidie Columna can answer a resounding “Yes!” to this question. Be encouraged with her story.

Haidie was pregnant with her second child when she faced a life-threatening battle in the form of uterine polyps.

“Even a miniscule cough or sneeze made me bleed. There were moments when I thought the baby in my womb died because of the intense bleeding,” Haidie recounted.

Her worries about her delicate pregnancy were aggravated with all the costly medications she had to take.

But, the most agonizing part was that Haidie had to battle her sickness without her husband because he was working overseas.

Have you been through a miserable situation like hers?

Haidie was crying out to God when she came across her favorite inspirational TV program, The 700 Club Asia.

“I was encouraged with the story of a pregnant woman who was diagnosed with cancer. She trusted God for her healing,” she shared.

The woman’s testimony filled Haidie’s heart with hope that God would preserve her son.

And He did.

Haidie gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and her uterine polyps miraculously went away.

Haidie trusted God wholeheartedly, and He did not fail her. Would you do the same?

But, just when Haidie thought her struggles are over, another adversity came that test her faith.

She was diagnosed with appendicitis and had to undergo surgery.

If you were in Haidie’s position, how would you feel and what would you do?

She and her husband knew they needed a weapon as they walk through another trying time—prayer. So, they called the CBN Asia Prayer Center to seek encouragement.

Prayer works!

Haidie had a successful surgery. She witnessed God’s favor in every step of the way.

“The Lord sent doctors that are strong in the faith! And we only had to pay a smaller amount for the whole surgery,” she joyfully narrated.

Haidie’s story of healing is a beautiful testament of God’s boundless grace overflowing in the lives of those who trust Him.

And she wants to encourage you with Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:33:

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Living under God’s boundless grace and unfailing love starts by knowing Jesus. Receive Him in your heart today!

Have You Ever Questioned Your Worth?

Have you ever received negative comments from the people around you, and they made you feel worthless?

You are not alone.

This happened to Natalie Rivera too.

Natalie grew up believing that she brought all the misfortunes on her family because her family lost their business on the same day she was born. Since then, her parents had labeled her “malas” or bad luck.

Shortly after she left home and got married, their family surprisingly went back to business. Sales were high and income was great again.


Her husband, who was a seaman, couldn’t go back to work despite all their efforts. This made him think that it was Natalie’s bad luck again.

All these instances convinced Natalie to believe she did cause mishaps and misfortunes to her loved ones.

She started seeing herself the way people closest to her, her family, and her spouse saw her –– bad luck!

Natalie nearly bought into this false idea of who she is until she chanced upon The 700 Club Asia. That moment allowed her to accept Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior; a brief yet a life-changing encounter with the Lord.

Coincidence? Absolutely not.

“God wants us to learn something from all the problems we face in life. When I had a relationship with Jesus, I started believing that I am not a bearer of misfortune. What others say do not and will never define me,” Natalie said.

Her mindset changed. She started seeing her worth and value in God. She stopped letting the words of others define how she perceived herself.

Everything was in place, or so she thought. Then a day came when her faith was put to the test.

She was accused of stealing from the pharmacy she was working for.

If you were in her shoes, what would your response be?

You might start questioning God and ask why He would put you in that kind of situation.

But Natalie’s response was different.

Her faith did not waver through this unfortunate situation. She held on to God’s promises and found strength in Him. She knew that He is always faithful!

Eventually, the truth came out.

Natalie was found innocent, and the real culprit was identified.

“I really appreciate the times that The 700 Club Asia reached out to me, especially during the moments that I badly needed prayers,” Natalie described.

There was also a time when Natalie was praying for healing from the pain in her left ear.

Once again, she watched The 700 Club Asia and stumbled upon the prayer of Peter Kairuz — a prayer that was very much related to what she was going through that day. So, she claimed the prayer and miraculously, she experienced instant healing.

She was amazed by the faithfulness of God in her life.

Truly, nothing happens by chance. God is sovereign over everything, over every aspect of everyone’s lives. He allows things to happen to His creation, for His great purpose.

As the Bible says in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” 

“I thank God for The 700 Club Asia, I learned that there is really hope in God. Truly, there is hope!” Natalie declared.

Like Natalie, have you ever questioned your worth or is your faith being put to test?

Your value is not defined by what the world says you are. God created you in His own image and He wants you to value yourself the way He sees you.

Come to Jesus.

He can change your heart and mind. He can change you in ways you would’ve never thought of.

Are You Jobless and Feeling Hopeless?

Are you exhausted?

Despite your best efforts to find a job, you’re still rejected by multiple companies.

Now, you’re depressed and anxious. You don’t know what to do. Being unemployed is extremely difficult. Marvin Anoos knows how that feels.

He was jobless for six months.

Everything was going well with Marvin. He worked as an engineer in Brunei.

When he came back home to the Philippines, he applied as a real estate agent in a company. He did pretty well and closed multiple deals.

He can still recall going home from work to watch The 700 Club Asia. His heart was moved by the stories and he became a faithful giver to CBN Asia since 2011.

“I know what it feels like to be helpless. It’s about time to share. For me, money is just a tool so you can bless others,” he shared.

Then, an unfortunate event happened that tested Marvin’s faith.

After a year of abundance, his sales drastically dropped. He went from little to nothing. He had to jump from one company to another, in hopes of increasing sales and closing deals. Unfortunately, he failed.

He was unemployed for 6 months.

“I can’t describe what I was feeling that time. I didn’t know where to get my next meal. I didn’t know how I could pay for my expenses. I was just lost, and I had nowhere to go,” he said.

If you are experiencing this, you are not alone.

Like Marvin, your story does not end in darkness and hopelessness.

The Lord encountered Marvin through The 700 Club Asia Live in Cavite where he was challenged to give in faith despite his lack.

“Alex Tinsay was exhorting about the power of giving. The only money left in my wallet is Php 1,000. I stepped out in faith and gave half of it despite knowing that it will not be enough to sustain my needs the following days,” he shared.

Marvin obeyed the Lord. He believed. He trusted then a miracle happened.

One week later, Marvin collected unexpected commission sales from his previous clients which amounted to Php 100,000.

Shocked. Delighted. Overwhelmed.

Marvin couldn’t describe how he felt. He just said, “I’ve been through ups and downs, but God is always there. He is faithful.”

Truly, He is faithful and gracious! A month later, Marvin landed a new job as a property specialist in a company.

“God is alive! He is real. You don’t have to worry about your life because He is a Great Provider,” Marvin testified.

If you are praying for a job, we hope that Marvin’s story brought hope and encouragement to you to keep going.

God did not abandon you. It says in Psalm 9:10 ESV, “And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.”

Do you want us to pray with you as you wait on the Lord for breakthrough in your job?

We can be your prayer partner! Just call us at 8-737-0-700 or visit CBN Asia Prayer Center.

If Marvin’s testimony touched your heart to step out in faith and give to CBN Asia Family of Ministries, you can partner with us today.

Can You still Give even with Overwhelming Debt?

For many, the very idea is absurd.

But Anna Sinapilo’s story is proof that God’s grace can turn life from being in financial debt to being a faithful giver.

Anna used to own a small retail store with the help of her family. Despite this, she still had to borrow money from time to time.

Her debt grew even more when she helped people despite her financial lack. Their business eventually failed due to its losses.

“I was in debt with almost Php 300,000 without my spouse and children knowing about it. At that time, my mind was blank,” she shared.

Are you also facing a financial crisis?

Wait for the Lord! He will turn your life around just as He did to Anna.

Just when Anna was going through a tough time in her life, she saw a program that helped relieve her miseries.

“I love watching The 700 Club Asia. So, I prayed to God to help me recover once again,” Anna recalled.

Although she was facing financial struggles, Anna generously donated her last Php 300 to The 700 Club Asia, not knowing that this would change the course of her life.

After joining in God’s mission by joyfully giving, Anna experienced God’s redemption from her debt.

She shared her financial problems to her son, who eventually helped her settle her financial accountabilities and start a new business.

Not only did God provided Anna a new business venture, but more than that, blessings overflowed into their family.

Are you also praying for your business to flourish, especially in these trying times?

If God can do it for Anna, He can certainly do it for you as well.

Until now, the business of Anna is not just providing income for their family, but it also became a blessing to their community through the employment opportunities that they provide.

“When you support the works for the Lord, there is prosperity in your business. That is what happened to us. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, The 700 Club Asia!” Anna said.

Indeed, there is blessing in giving!

When you cheerfully give to God despite your scarcity, His provision will overtake you, and it will multiply to your family and community. Just like how God worked in the life of Anna.

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11:25 NIV)

Are you also praying for God’s deliverance from debt?

Are You Tired of Living with Depression and Brokenness?

Tonee Candia was.

She was able to break to free from the seemingly never-ending pain of heartbreak, and so can you.

Tonee and her boyfriend were the “perfect couple.” Both achievers in school, they set an example of balancing romantic relationships and academic performance.

But behind the façade of a pure relationship, they did something that not even their parents knew.

“We were engaging in premarital sex,” Tonee confessed. “We were living a double life.”

Have you ever been so in love with someone that nothing else mattered?

Tonee gave her boyfriend her all—love, time, and attention—so much that her heart was drawn away from her family.

“He was my world. My life revolved around him,” she shared.

But just when she thought their love will never be torn apart, it did.

Tonee’s heart was crumbled into pieces when her boyfriend left her after many years of staying together.

“Letting him go was so painful to me,” Tonee painfully recounted. “I was left so devastated that I questioned my worth. I felt nothing without him.”

Like Tonee, have you experienced a heartbreak so severe that the thought of moving forward seemed impossible?

“I felt like a complete failure.”

“No one will ever love and accept me.”

“Where is God in this mess?”

These were Tonee’s words. Have you said these too before?

In the midst of her depression and isolation, Tonee chanced upon The 700 Club Asia.

“Praying with Peter Kairuz and Coney Reyes gave my heart unexplainable peace,” she said.

Tonee then started a habit that helped her process her emotions.

“Every night, I would write my prayers to God in a journal,” Tonee explained. “I would write anything, like ‘Lord, it still hurts,’ or ‘God, please heal me from this pain.’

Tonee stepped further into God’s healing by being part of a church community. There she gave her life to Jesus, the One who gave her a new identity.

“I am His princess, worthy to be loved,” Tonee boldly declared.

Her healing journey perfectly echoes God’s heart in Psalm 147:3, He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.”

Bring your deepest pain and heartbreak to Jesus, and He will soothe your wounds with His loving care.

Tonee’s transformed life became a signpost for the whole family towards God’s salvation.

“I saw how the Lord mended her broken heart, and that led us to surrender our lives to Him, too,” her sister Marilette testified.

No life is too messed up for the Lord to restore. Give Him every piece of your broken heart, and let Him do the mending. Start your spiritual healing journey here.

If God is Good, Why would He Allow Me to be Miserable?

Have you ever come to a point where you questioned God’s goodness?

“Why is everything so difficult?”

“Why am I all alone?”

“Is there anybody on my side?”

Difficult and painful circumstances often lead us to doubt the character of God.

This is how Lito Marasigan dealt with life growing up.

He was devastated as a child upon seeing how his mother suffered when his father abandoned them for another woman. He often asked God,

“Why is my family broken?”

“Why do I have a miserable childhood?”

“Why am I abandoned and left on my own?”

At an early age, Lito had to be the breadwinner of his family. He did everything to make money to support his family, from selling balut, cigarettes, and newspapers to trading scrap metal.

As he struggled in his everyday life, Lito longed for a complete and whole family. He wondered if God was really fair and good as people said He was.

Do Lito’s sentiments sound familiar to you?

Are you like him as a child? Have you been forced to stand on your own when you still needed someone to guide and walk you through life?

Because he lacked the guidance of a father, Lito was left to fend for himself and grew up a troublemaker.

Lito’s mother encouraged him to trust God’s plan and to live a decent life, but he went on the wrong path to survive on his own.

He struggled to see the purpose of his pain and brokenness. He lived his life with no direction.

Because Lito could not see a future for himself because he had to find the means to survive each day, he resorted to stealing.

But even as Lito broke the law time and time again, God never gave up on pursuing him.

When his partner in crime got mobbed and escaped from being salvaged, he turned to Lito for help.

Overwhelmed by fear and helplessness, Lito was left awake in the middle of the night.

In his restlessness, Lito chanced upon The 700 Club Asia. Listening to the host, Lito that even if he lived his life in his own terms, he was still miserable.

That’s when Lito surrendered his life to Jesus. As he cried for help, he invited Jesus to come to his life and to forgive and make him new.

“Lord, I am tired! Would you move in my life and show me Your miracle?” Lito cried out to the Lord.

Is your heart crying the same prayer as Lito’s?

It’s time to give up control and surrender your life to Jesus. He is gracious to forgive you and embrace you for all you are and all that you have—your desires, concerns, and even your troubles and mistakes.

God’s grace and forgiveness empowered Lito to live a changed life.

Though transformation is not an instant process, he claimed God’s promise in Hebrews 13:5b, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

The Lord is faithful in changing us to be more like His Son Jesus.

Step by step, Lito chose to follow Jesus. Eventually, this path led him to meet his father and to forgive him for abandoning their family. Without hesitation, Lito gave his father the same forgiveness he received from the Lord.

Are you exhausted living on your own? Do you struggle to forgive someone who ruined your life?

Has your pain or bitterness blinded you to see God’s goodness?

Rest in the knowledge that God has always been there for you. He has the power to change your future no matter what kind of past you have.

Though Lito chose to live a reckless life, God still pursued him and showed him His goodness.

Today, God entrusted Lito to lead many people to experience the power that can change lives. God used Lito to plant several churches. And what’s more, Lito is serving God alongside his sons!

“Only God can fulfill the good life you are longing to live,” Lito declared.
