Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day!
By Linda Ghabriel
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father ...
What a thought!
As we read about Jesus in the gospels, we are seeing the Father. John 1:14 tells us that He is full of grace and truth. John 3:16 reveals to us God’s love, love so great that He gave us His only Son, not to condemn us but to save us. Throughout the gospels, Jesus reveals the Father as He shows His power over the elements and over all the circumstances of our lives. He reveals His compassion and love for the outcasts as He cared for the Samaritan woman, the lepers and the Roman official whose son was deathly ill.
God’s omniscience is demonstrated in John 2:25b where ”… he himself knew what was in man” and also in John 6 where He reveals that even from the beginning, He knew who would betray Him. Not only does He know us intimately, but He also shows God’s wisdom in dealing with those who set out to trap Him, leaving them confounded.
He shows the zeal of the Lord in the cleansing of the temple. Jesus washes all of the disciples’ feet as an example to them that they should do just as He had done. Not only had Jesus done what only the lowliest of servants do, but He also washed Judas’ feet, showing His love for the one who would betray Him very soon. Knowing what He was about to face, His first thought was to prepare the disciples. Even on the cross, He exhibited God’s love as He ministered to the thief on the cross and made sure His mother would be cared for.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,

Congratulations to all CYIAers 2021 who successfully completed their training this summer! We praise God for your obedience and testimony in serving His purpose!
Six of our own Joshua Mainit, Li-Ahn Gabriel, Janine Lobo, Joyce Lim, Austin Pelayo, and Toni Lobo are amongst the summer missionaries who are now well equipped to effectively teach children about God.
Throughout the span of one week mock club time, 256 children in the State of Southern California heard the gospel, and 20 children professed their faith in Christ. Praise God for His wonderful work in the children!
With the opportunity, we'd also like to give a special shout out to thank our mock club host, Ms. Lissette Pelayo.
