Almost a decade now since I started praying for God’s will. The long wait is over. Someone realized that I am his missing rib. 

His proposal was quite different from the normal proposal. He asked our Senior Pastor first. This is how he proposed

“I mentioned about sis Jhunnel Sebastian, who has been attending Makati church since 1997. She was in the Medical Ministry before, now she is one of the CE teachers and 4:30 Workers. She studied TESOL and wants to work as an overseas missionary. Since we met, we talked a lot and love each other very much. Right now, we are praying for marriage and working together in China. She can work as an English teacher to support the ministry and assist me in the church. Pastor Gerry, you are our senior pastor and Spiritual Director. So we ask for your advice. Is it ok for us to marry and serve WWCF in China? We’ve been praying for this and now I think it’s a good time to ask for your permission”

He asked our Pastor first, maybe because he really wanted to get my “YES”. We have almost a year of getting to know each other. We really didn’t have that formal relationship, until we both heard from God. I received confirmation first, I asked so many signs from God and everything had been fulfilled.

I surrender him to God when he told me that he’s not ready for commitment yet and his priority is the ministry. I surrender him to God. It was the start of this year that I started planning to be a tentmaker in the 10/40 window. I finished my TESOL training, April this year. I’ve got my proposal May 29, I wasn’t surprised actually. That, I’ve been expecting.

I’ll be done with my KAIROS training on Friday, this is pre-requisite course for my Mission Training Program this October.

I thank God for him. He’s a blessing from above. Not only that he’s cutie(in my eyes he’s the most handsome guy, God blinded me so I won’t be looking to right and to left(lol)), but what I admired from him, is his passion to serve the Lord. It’s indeed a blessing to have someone who has the same faith and vision as yours.

Next year I’ll be joining him in China and in serving the Lord. We believe that God has great plans for us and for the ministry that he entrusted to us. We believe that He will enlarge our territories, we believe that He will use us for His glory alone. We want this marriage to glorify Him alone. We prayed for this and now He answered us.

He has blessed us that others may be blessed through us. We want this marriage to glorify Him alone.

He deserved all the Glory. Honor and Praise.
