            After giving back to God’s Workers on our Project IV, we head back to our 3 original focus groups. THE ARMANDO Q. LEYVA PROJECT will begin with our Indigents. Pastor Oscar Joaquin & Brother Ramil De Los Reyes of the GOSPEL OF CHRIST FELLOWSHIP BAGUIO came to me and asked for help in their first ever major Church endeavor which is the “SALVATION OF SOULS”, and it has targeted these 136 Prison Indigents of Baguio City Jail.

            These Prison Indigents that I’m referring to are the inmates who never had any visitors inside the jail while serving their entire sentence. So they really receive nothing, in terms of gifts such as hygiene kit, shirts or any food that they can eat inside while locked away in these heavily guarded walls. Some of them have already aged & grew old because they were serving life or double life. Some were forgotten & neglected by their own blood. They were considered as troubled outcasts of society. But I never saw them that way and personally, for me? These are the People that we should tap in sharing God’s words because for them, they have already built this belief in their mind that GOD had abandoned them a long time ago, which is inevitably untrue. And also, these are the human beings that we should share our love to and give our attention & concerns coz’ there is nothing more depressing than having that feeling of bleakness & misery within one’s self just because hopelessness had already consumed one’s own soul. That is why, when Pastor Oscar Joaquin & Brother Ramil De Los Reyes told me about GCF Baguio’s Project, without a single hesitation, I corresponded with conviction and shouted “YES”! Because I firmly & sturdily believe that these are the souls that we should prioritize in bringing closer to our Creator.

            So Praise GOD! On November 30, 2015, the project had pushed through and THE ARMANDO Q. LEYVA PROJECT was one of the Major Sponsors aside from my Mentor when I was still studying in Medicine, DR. ISRAEL YASAY, who is a true Man of God and of whom I admire & aspire to become with if ever I develop into a Consultant Doctor in the future. I’ve assisted him numerous of times before in his operations and undeniably, he puts GOD first in everything that he does in his career & family, a truly remarkable Christian.

            On the day of the event, I literally have witnessed these 136 Prison Indigents’ excitement because someone has remembered to visit them. Someone saw what they have been through inside the jail & gave value to them which really means a lot for them and you could tell this by the look on their faces. They were also enthused in receiving gifts this coming Christmas coz’ that is the true reason on why we are celebrating it after all. And after the heartfelt & inspiring life testimony of Pastor Eladio Javier, I saw the most important piece of the event and that is, majority of them, of about 80 indigents accepted GOD in their lives. I just purely & plainly fell into tears to what I have just witnessed. It is such a powerful & moving manifestation that you really could feel the Holy Spirit touch everyone in that function hall that Godly day…

            "In the end, the most significant gift that we have given them weren’t the material presents but the souvenir of God’s Words… Coz’ they will use that permanently throughout their entire lives, whether they remain serving inside or would go out of this fortified walls. And the one sure thing is, it would never ran out of stock." One lesson that we could pick up in this compelling experience is… “GOD uses numerous of vessels just to reach one soul, and yes! That is how important one soul is to our GOD. He just wanted to remind each one of us, that he will always love & never leave his children, even if at times, we have thought so. We are just blinded by the World to see, that at what we thought GOD had left us, is the opposite, we have been the ones who stayed away from him.”

            The ARMANDO Q. LEYVA PROJECT (PART 5) would like to thank Pastor Oscar Joaquin, Pastor Eladio Javier, Brother Ramil De Los Reyes, Dr. Israel Yasay and the Workers of GCF (Gospel of Christ Fellowship) Church Baguio. May our GOD do wonderful favors to your heart’s desires…

            Luke 10:27 said “Love the Lord your GOD with all your heart & with all your sould & with all your strength & with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.”
