Her testimony resonates deeply with the journey of self-discovery, spiritual awakening, and ultimate surrender to a higher purpose. Born in Davao Del Sur, she emerged as the youngest among four siblings, raised in a household where the sanctity of church attendance was instilled, albeit initially as an obligation rather than a heartfelt commitment. Yet, it was her mother who lovingly nurtured her spiritual growth, planting seeds that would later bear fruit in her life.

However, a moment of discord within the church community led her down a path of estrangement, causing her to stray from the teachings she once held dear. In this period of distance, she found solace in a life that deviated from the divine standard, grappling with an identity crisis that led her to embrace a lifestyle incongruent with her upbringing. High school brought about a tumultuous period of self-exploration, during which she found herself embracing a lesbian identity and indulging in a carefree existence filled with vices.

Yet, beneath the facade of liberation, she harbored a profound sense of emptiness and longing, a nagging feeling that something essential was missing from her life. It was in the depths of this inner turmoil that she felt a stirring within her soul, a compelling urge to reconnect with her spiritual roots and seek redemption in the eyes of God.

The passing of her mother served as a poignant catalyst for her spiritual awakening, prompting her to confront the futility of her pursuits and wholeheartedly surrender her life to a higher calling. In that moment of reckoning, she made a solemn vow to dedicate her life to serving God, embarking on a transformative journey of faith and self-discovery.

Today, she finds herself on a path of redemption and renewal, undergoing rigorous training at JTCM as she strives to deepen her connection with the divine and fulfill her new found purpose. Her testimony serves as a testament to the transformative power of faith, the resilience of the human spirit, and the boundless grace of God’s love. Through her journey from darkness to light, she embodies the profound truth that no one is beyond redemption, and that through faith and perseverance, even the most wayward soul can find their way back to the embrace of the divine.
