I sat beside Nanay Isabel Baguio at lunch today (November 29/2nd day of our Encounter).
As we sat together to enjoy a Thai inspired meal, I learned that Nanay Isabel has been a Verbum Dei disciple for 18 years now. Wow! Truly a faithful servant of God.
She is still working as a Junior High School teacher at Cebu Institute of Technology University, teaching Cookery (Home Economics) and Values Education for the past 34 years now.
When asked how she remained faithful to being a VD disciple, she mentioned, it is because of God’s faithfulness, even though she could be unfaithful at times. She strongly believes that God has been with her in her journey through thick or thin. Had it not for God’s faithfulness, she and her husband could have separated a long time ago due to relationship problems.
And although they have not been blessed with children of their own, her being a teacher and a disciple has made her a mother and guide to many more children and youth in her lifetime.
Thank you Mila Abigan from VD Tagaytay for sharing this interview with us!
