Goodbye Ka Erano Manalo

I really don't know what to say here.... My heart is full of sadness and I really can't stop myself from crying.

I am an Iglesia Ni Cristo member ever since I was born. It is painful to know that our dear Ka Erano Manalo died yesterday at 3:54pm. I received so many text messages about his death this morning and I must admit that up to now I am still refusing to believe it.

According to some news he died after his battle of prostate cancer. Public viewing of his remains will start at 3pm today at the Iglesia ni Cristo Temple.



To Ka Erdie... Have a good rest and Thank you very much!

lagi ko sila pinapanalangain. Dumalo kami sa malakihang selebrasyon sa San Jose California kamakailan lang. Na isip ko, sana makita ni Ka Erdy ang pagdiriwang duon, ang daming kapatid, ang saya. Siguradong matutuwa siya. May pinalabas na maikling video kung saan sinasabi niya na maging masigla tayong lahat... Naisip ko sana maka uwi kami sa ika 100yrs ng INC, sana makita ko pa siya ulit. The last time I saw him and shook his hand was many years ago. I will miss him dearly. May he rest in peace knowing na maguumpisa ako sa sarili ko na maging masigla. hinihikayat ko kayong lahat na mga mahal na kapatid. Maging nasigla tayo! Bawat family dapat may isang bunga, every year. Ipapanalangin kong matupad ito... Rest in peace Ka Erdy, I will start with me. Mahal na mahal ka namin...

Paalam po Ka Erdie,

Kayo po ang dahilan kung bakit nanatiling matibay at matatag ang aking pananampalataya sa Dios sa kbila ng lhat ng mga pagsubok n dumating sa akin at sa aking pamilya ang bawat leksyon n inyong binabalangkas at itinituro sa amin s bawat panahon ng pagsamba ay pagkaing hinahanap hanap ng aking kaluluwa. Alam ko po na muli tayong magkikita at muling makakadaupang palad pagdating ng paghuhukom doon sa Bayang Banal na Ipingako sa atin ng Dios. Ka Erdy, mananatili po kayong buhay sa aking puso at ang lahat ng aral n itinuro ninyo s akin ay siya kong ipamumulat sa aking anak. Paalam po at hanggang sa muling pagkikita.

This is a very sad day for all the brethren indeed. But there is a way for us to keep his memory within our hearts: let us all be strong and steadfast in upholding our holy right to serve our one and only God, as ka Erdy have always wanted every member of the church to be.

Let us thank the Lord for even though he had laid to rest our tireless leader, He appointed our dear ka Eduardo to take his place. This is proof that God has not forsaken his nation as He has promised.

Nawa, ang makasaysayang araw na ito ay magsilbing inspirasyon nating lahat para lalo tayong magtumibay sa paglilingkod sa ating Panginoong Dios.

To all my fellow INC members,

As our dear beloved Ka Erdy once said "Everything is God's will". If there is anything I remember the most from Ka Erdy it's his unmovable faith to our Lord God and His son our Lord Jesus Christ; let this inspire us all to also bare the same faith that we may all hold strong in the doctrines that was imparted to each of us through the ledership of our beloved Ka Erdy.But also let us never forget that we are all just faithful subjects to the will of our Almighty Father and that His loving grace and mercy will be the one that will carry us from all these pains and ultimately one day it will also be the very reason for us to gathered again us one body to the land He promised to all His faithuls where pains and sufferings will be no more. May God bless us all as I and my family send each and everyone of you our love and peace. To Ka Erdy , a job well done sir, take your rest and soon our Father will allow us all to be together. Thank you and Paalam po.

Up until now, I still have difficulty digesting the very sad news. It just won't sink in.

As they say, It's God's will. Ka Erdie fought a good fight and he was able to finish the race. He was truly an inspiration to all brethren. His great leadership will be sorely missed by all brethren worldwide.

This is not goodbye. Let us remain steadfast in our faith and be headstrong onward to meet the Lord!

It has been a couple of days since the sad news was confirmed that our beloved Ka Erdy had already passed, but like many other faithful members here, I just wont sink in...that it is true. But I know that as our leader would always say "We are believers of God's words and not just followers of a man" and I remember him saying it before in one of his lessons and now that I remembered it I cant seem to stop tears from rolling down my cheeks. I only had the privilege to shake his hands maybe 3-4 times in my entire life...but I felt close to Ka Erdy because I can feel that he prays for me, for all of us every single day, and I can feel that , which Im sure everyone does too. I already miss you Ka Erdy and I know the next time we all see each other it will be time to receive what our Lord has been preparing for us all. We Love you Sir...and may GOD Speed!
