I believe we were created by God as perfect human beings. We were made in the image of God. Here's the thing, I believe we are positioned by the Almighty, loving and compassionate God to prosper and live in the BLESSING. But something terrible happened. Sin entered our live through the disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve. This destroyed our bountiful inheritance and the curse of poverty and suffering were the result. This may sound spiritual but its true. However, the curse was cancelled when Jesus Christ redeemed our sins by dying on the CROSS for us! The Bible says that if we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Saved from sin and the curse of poverty among others!
In 2000, I retired from working as sales and marketing executive of Fujitsu Philippines. Since then, I made it my goal to set up my own business to support the family's financial needs. Together with my wife, our first taste of business was a KISS King Of Balls franchise, selling Kikiam and Squid balls on carts. Back then, our service crews came mostly from the urban poor areas. In the course of doing business, We have been exposed to poverty. We discovered that most of our service crews have embedded poverty mentality. Debt have become a way of life for them and they end up wallowing in debt with no solution in sight.
Today, I co-manage a Uno Overseas Placement, recruitment agency together with my friends. In this business, we see poverty before our very eyes. The good thing about this is, we have the privilege and the chance to be an agent to change the way the Overseas workers think! It is exciting to see them released and acquire a new mind-set, a prosperous mind-set. We were created to be prosperous!
I have a mission: to change the way people think about themselves. That they are not poor and that they were created to prosper! If I can do that through this blog, I have added value to our people. With the grace of God, I know I will.
