Yes, There Are Still Angels In The Internet



Despite the growing cynicism of the times where people tend to be more greedy and avaricious; despite the widespread distrust of man against his fellowmen; despite the turbulent situation of the world's economy; yes, and despite the coldness of man against his fellowmen, it is heartwarming to note that, yes, there are still angels in the internet. No, it is not the winged kind with glowing halos on their head. These are faceless angels I have met in the internet in the course of my blogging activities. It just so happened that I made an innocent comment in one of the post of a Christian blogger friend from the Philippines about how the verse she posted- Proverbs 3: 5-6 ("Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths."), came to me like a sudden burst of spring shower in the desert land I was in, facing a financially gloomy Christmas. She asked for my paypal account address. I said no, she needed the money herself because of a very recent and expensive major operation of her mother. But she insisted and I finally consented. Yesterday she deposited a generous amount to my account. It was heaven sent and what could I say but thanked the Lord for the generosity of this lady angel. I will not mention her name lest a beeline of opportunist bloggers come knocking at her door. Suffice it to say that I prayed hard for her that the Lord will return back to her a thousand fold what she gave me.

Another blogging friend from Canada who is suffering from multiple debilitating and painful diseases offered to send me a custom built cane that functions as a seat as well. I gently declined the offer, citing her own need for the medicine and treatment cost of her diseases and the exorbitant cost of shipping it from Canada. I can't believe that there are still people out there whose hearts are gold and still beating with love and tenderness for their fellowmen. May your tribe increase. Yes Virginia, there are still angels in the internet.

Hi Tey,
Aw, Tey, that's too much but as always, TO GOD BE THE GLORY. I'm just doing what I am doing as a full time ministry for the Lord since He took me out from a full time ministry in the church and other active ministries such as Bible studies in Christian houses. Sickness and debilitating weakness have not left me since and I was left with no other ministry by my family (where I am the father and mother since my wife is working in the US) and my blogging to please the Lord and give glory to His name. I have always prayed for those who patronize and visit my blogs and I always call upon the Holy Spirit to enliven each article I write. But thanks for your encouraging words. You are a friend indeed whom I will treasure for the rest of my life. I pray that you will succeed in your newest venture which is online selling. Thanks for your visit and encouraging comments. God bless you always my friend.
