God is waiting for us at the Kerygma Conference...

Free to Pursue Passion - Anton Diaz.012

I attended the very first Kerygma Conference in 2007 when I was at a crossroad in my career.

I was praying to God to find my passion and purpose in life. I was torn between continuing a career with a company that I love in P&G Philippines or to pursue my blog Our Awesome Planet full time.

During one of the Gospel sessions, Bro. Bo Sanchez prayed for the Holy Spirit to touch the lives of the attendees. I clearly remember when I closed my eyes I saw a vision of thousands of people hugging me and thanking me for my blog. 

My son Aidan who attended with me hugged me, and I cried the entire time.

In 2008, I quit my high paying job in the best multinational company in Manila to pursue blogging. That vision gave me the determination and inspiration to pursue Our Awesome Planet full time. 

Looking back after 10 years, I'm happy I attended the conference and made that life-changing decision.


I invite you to have that transformative experience at this year's Kerygma Conference. Here's what to expect...

A Miracle in Mindoro – A Message from Mary

(Written by Willy E. Arcilla)

Blessed Virgin Mary

February 11 is a date which the Roman Catholic Church commemorates as the World Day of the Sick in honor of Our Lady of Lourdes to whom is attributed countless miraculous cures that have occurred in Lourdes, located in the foothills of the Pyrenees, southwestern France, a world-renowned pilgrimage site of the Marian apparitions to the 14-year old St. Bernadette Soubirous in 1858.  Her message then, as in all past apparitions across the world remains consistent and universal, timeless and enduring  --      a call for the conversion of sinners; prayer and sacrifice of the faithful; and charity for the poor and sick.

On the same date this year, February 11, 2013, 155 years after the first apparition in Lourdes, the Blessed Virgin Mary appears to have made her presence felt once more and her message revived, but not in Europe, rather, right here on Philippine soil – on Iling, an impoverished island off the southwestern coast of Mindoro, an hour by pumpboat from San Jose, the capital of Occidental Mindoro.

February 11, 2013 marked the inauguration of Santisima Trinidad, a new church built on the island for the Missionaries of Mary, Mother of the Poor (MMMP), with the help of private donors led by the DMCI group of companies. The MMMP was founded in 2011 by Fr. Fernando Suarez, the world-renowned and much beloved healing priest, who was incardinated in Mindoro under Bishop Antonio F. Palang, SVD.

Sister Raquel Reodica, Cancer Healer of the Lord


One of my pro bono projects is to do a total site makeover of Sister Raquel's website from a Web 1.0 site (Mother Ignacia Healing Ministry) to a Web 2.0 Site (Sister Raquel Blog).

Sister Raquel is one of the Mother Ignacia nuns who is known as a Cancer Healer of the Lord. You can subscribe to the blog to get inspirational photos and poems by Eastwind and Sister Raquel. You can also pray for people from all around the world who requested for prayers for their sickness. You can also send your own prayer requests to the prayer warriors.

We visited Sister Raquel and had a healing pray over session for my mom.


My partner for the blog site, Bernie Lopez was busy filming testimonials on how Jesus was able to heal the sick through Sister Raquel.

Check out SisterRaquel.com if you want to know more about the Mother Ignacia Healing Ministry of Sister Raquel, RVM.
