“Ating tinatawag ang mga makasalanan, ang mga salot sa lipunan at yun mga may karamdaman, ang maraming mga problema at walang katiyakan sa buhay dahil ang sadya ng ating mahal na Panginoon ay sadyang mabuti, sa totoong Diyos na marunong magpatawad sabi nga bumaba ang mahal na Panginoon dito sa lupa upang iligtas at mamatay para sa atin na makasalanan. Ito ang ebanghelyo na ipinapangaral ng ating mahal na Pastor (Wilde Estrada Almeda) sa atin na kilalanin po natin ang ating pinakamamahal na Panginoon Hesukristo na siyang nagbibigay ng pagasa sa bawat isa sa atin,” said Minister Esguerra in his impassioned speech.
Sister Rachel also broke down and cried while speaking during the anniversary. She spoke largely on God’s miracles and how it guided “every soul” to salvation and righteous path through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Her heart-rending speech was drowned by cries of “hallelujah, hallelujah” by the faithful crowd.
Hundreds of faithful members and supporters, including former communist rebels and government soldiers, attended the baptism which coincided with the 21st anniversary of the Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry here.
“Brothers Toto Guzman and Rody de Asis received water baptism in Jesus’ name through the leading prayer of our Beloved and Honorable Evangelist Wilde Estrada Almeda, God's end time prophet,” Brother Cuarteros said.
EvangelistWilde Estrada Almeda founded the Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry in February 14, 1975 and has since then attracted a huge following – by the hundreds of thousands both from the Philippines and around the world.
And Sister Rachel Almeda-Esguerra is one of his daughters who is actively involved in various church activities just like the other members of the Almeda family, including the only son – Minister Wilde James Almeda, who is based in the United States.
Brother De Asis, who spoke before a huge crowd, said: It’s really a blessing that I joined this congregation...I appeal to all of you, the members of this congregation na piliin po natin ang mga lider na may dakilang layunin at puso na maglingkod sa atin bayan dito sa ating lalawigan ng Cagayan.”
Brother De Guzman, in his speech after the baptism, said: Heto po ako na tao po lamang...kailangan lahat ng mga ginagawa natin ay ibigay po natin para po sa Panginoon. Hindi ko po akalain na ganito po ang aking mararamdaman, naooverwhelm po ako ng aking emotions kasi nakikita ko po kayong lahat, tinitignan ko kayo bakit ang saya-saya ninyo – iyon pala ang sikreto ninyo.”
“Sa tingin ko po ang kailangan natin maumpisahan ay ang moral at spiritual recovery at iyan po ang number one sa ating agenda na dapat kung gusto natin ng tunay na progreso patungong pagasa, babaguhin natin ang mga ugali ng ating mga lider dahil unang-una sila ang tinitignan natin ehemplo sa ating bayan. Dapat sila ang mag-umpisa at matakot sila sa Diyos upang sa ganoon ay hindi po sila makagawa ng katiwalian sa ating bayan. Kung lahat ng lideres natin ay may takot sa Panginoon wala pong mangyayari na hindi maganda sa ating bayan. Wala po akong masabi sa inyong lahat (sa Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry) kundi ang magpasalamat,” he said.
Brother Cuarteros said the army’s 17th Infantry Battalion under Colonel Jose Real – who is a staunch peace advocate - also provided trucks to ferry church members from Zinundungan Valley. Members of the army unit regularly attend services by the Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry.
“Hallelujah, two military trucks ang ginamit para masakyan ng mga kapatiran galing Zinundungan Valley. They were former New People’s Army members and others were former rebel supporters, and now they are all for peace and all these are because of God’s grace. And as Colonel Real said and I quote – we are all for peace, all for God,” he said.
Brother Cuarteros also said cited the miraculous power of God after one of their jeep’s which was supposed to ferry church members fell off a roadside and rolled down a slope – but the driver Brother Joey Tarayao were unhurt, although the vehicle was damaged from the accident.
“Nakatulog si Brother Joey sa habang nagmamaneho at nahulog sa bangin ang jeep, ngunit himalang nakaligtas siya at walang galos. Kukunin sana niya ang mga kapatiran sa Ilagan City para sa outreach mission ng ating 21st church anniversary sa Tuguegarao City and through the leading prayer ng ating Beloved and Honorable Evangelist Pastor Wilde Estrada Almeda, the end time prophet of God, iniligtas siya sa tiyak na kamatayan, amen,” narrated Brother Cuarteros.
Just last month, Rodel Dupaya Gerez, a gubernatorial candidate of the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan in Cagayan province, also joined the Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry and was baptized along with lawyer Reymund Guzman – who served as provincial board member for three terms and is now running for a council seat in Tuguegarao City under the Liberal Party of President Benigno Aquino.
And also Elmer Maribbay, an instructor at the Cagayan State University; and Jonas Taguiam – who are both running for the city council – joined the Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry and baptized.
The Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry in Cagayan province is active in various crusades in different areas here and nearby provinces and was able to unite the police, military and communist rebels to listen and accept the words of God.
