If you had a million dollars to give away, who would you give it to?

Wow. Converted to PHP that’s 57M. If I really had to give it away I would give it to my husband so it comes back to me lol. Well, that was my husband’s answer. I actually never thought of that.

Personally though if I were to give it away without plotting to get it back I would give it to KBCF to fund the church building project. It’s my previous home church. I’m not active anymore, but there aren’t a lot of organizations I trust.

I grew up in a Christian household. As a kid me and my family would attend Word of Hope. Then when we moved I joined a different church, Victory Novaliches, while my parents stayed with WOH. I was active at Victory. I taught kids as a Sunday School teacher, I was with a cell group. I thought my faith was flourishing. Until I was reminded to make disciples. I couldn’t do it. I was too scared to reach out. Every time it crossed my mind I start second guessing my faith. If I was a real Christian why is it so hard for me to evangelize?

When I got married I moved to a new church, KBCF, where my husband attended. Although it was smaller, it felt warmer. It didn’t take long for me to get familiar with the attendees. Its size made the pastors and elders more approachable. So approachable I wouldn’t dare doze off as the audience is merely yards away from the pulpit lol. And because I couldn’t sleep, I listened more. And because I listened more, I learned more.

I would say my Christian life grew with KBFC. It encouraged me to study the Bible, make fellowship, and ask questions. It brought enlightenment to the glamorized Christian worldview of prosperity and abundance. They’re not afraid to get real. Which is probably why I grew. Grew out of it, not of the church, but of my faith. I realized I’m too comfortable to be called a Christian.
