An Amazing God we serve

Last Tuesday, my parents went for a check up because we observed Dad’s deep breath. Then, after some time, Mom called us, crying. We needed to be strong for them so we encouraged her to calm down. Her voice trembled when she reported Dad’s condition. I remember saying to her to be strong for us. “Kaya ni Dad yan! (Dad can surpass it.)” That’s what I have in mind. We prayed for him. No doubts at all. No doubts.  We contacted everyone to help us find an ambulance because Dad was about to be transferred from San Pedro Doctors to Unihealth – Southwoods.

We never lose hope and Mom called telling us that the hospital called and requested for an ambulance. In no time, Dad has been transferred to Unihealth-Southwoods and went straight to the ICU (Intensive Care Unit).

I stayed home and prayed while Pipo and Inay went to Unihealth. I asked God several questions.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.” 

Isaiah 55:8

All of us requested for your prayers. My siblings and I never have a decent sleep during his first day at the ICU.

They checked Dad’s condition and found out that:

  • He suffered mild heart attack
  • His heart was drowning
  • His kidney failed (18% working)
  • His lungs were filled with fluids

Truly, the Lord Jesus Christ is faithful. He said to His word,

For I will restore health to you And heal you of your wounds,’ says the LORD,

Jeremiah 30:17a

With all your prayers and with the faithfulness and grace of God, ALL IS NORMAL now.  Daddy will have to rest a little bit more in the hospital.

Praise God! In Jesus Name, everything is fine with Dad!

On behalf of the Castro family, we just want to praise God for touching your heart to join us in praying for my Dad, Rev. Ptr. Rewell S. Castro. This testing declares His faithfulness and love to those who serve Him fully.

We just want to thank all the churches, our friends, our colleagues, our relatives, and even strangers who helped us to pray and sustain the needs of my father.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!

I personally would like to hug everyone right now!

Praise God! To God be the glory!

We have a BIG GOD who answers quickly because He is just a prayer away! He is just waiting for you to say your hurts, your happiness, your pain, and your suffering. Knock at the doorstep of heaven, He will answer you right away!
