Mandirigma

- Sherwin Tubang

Sherwin_TubangMy propecia online life back in the Philippines had no direction. I was notorious, black sheep, and full of hatred. I had no dream, no vision. I couldn’t even see myself because it was just too dark. I felt it was a chain that would have a hold on me for the rest of my life. I was offered a job in Singapore, which I rejected twice, but I finally accepted when it was offered to me for the third time.

My first Friday in Singapore was a buy priligy online very special moment in my life -for it was my first encounter with God.  A friend invited me to attend the Mosaic Friday Service in Suntec. In one moment, I realized that God was all the while calling me and patiently waiting for me. From then on, my life started to change. He redeemed me from darkness. He restored my broken life and showered me with grace and love. He also gave me a family, my Mosaic family. My first two months here in Singapore was never easy and full of struggle. I experienced being insulted by a manager who even said I couldn’t make it in my field. I felt so small.  I would always cry to God. Every encounter with Him would strengthen my faith. He would always assure me that He brought me in this place not to be in shame, rather He has good plan for me.

Naging matibay din ako sa aking patuloy na paglalakbay dahil may sinasandalan akong simbahan na patuloy na nanghihimok sa aking lumaban. Lalong nagpalakas sa akin ang mensahe ng Angat Lahi. Napukaw ang aking kalooban. Nagising ang aking puso. Akala ko, sa matagal na panahong ako ay naligaw ay naging bato na ang aking damdamin. Subalit ngayon makarinig lamang ako ng awiting bigay ng ating Diyos patungkol sa bayan, naaalala ko at nadudurog ang aking puso sa ating kinasadlakan.

Kumilos buy levitra online ang makapangyarihang Diyos sa aking buhay. I earnestly longed for opportunities to restore my dignity… my dignity as a Filipino. Sinimulan ko sa aking trabaho. Nag-extra mile ako. I did things beyond my job scope. I shared whatever I know to my teammates. I was given a chance to implement new things in my company. I worked at home and even sometimes on weekends without anyone knowing it. I consistently reported to work ahead of time, not just on time. I also guided my Filipino colleagues and reminded them of the importance of standing for the Filipino name and for one another. After six months, I was promoted as Project Executive. Hindi nagtagal, I was promoted as Senior Project Executive and eventually, as Assistant Project Manager. Just recently my General Manager talked to me about having a new team that will be led by me. Napakasarap isipin na narating ko ang lahat ng ito hindi dahil naghangad akong kumita ng mas malaki. I just gave my best for God and for the sake of my Filipino name.

Hindi madali ang buhay OFW. Masasabi kong lagi tayong nasa battlefield. Tayo ay mga mandirigmang nakikipaglaban upang iangat ang ating lahi sa iba’t-ibang panig ng mundo kung saan tayo inilagay. Para sa akin, alam kong mapagtatagumpayan ko ang lahat ng laban dahil kasama ko ang Diyos.
