JR’s Journey:

I am Renato B. Milca Jr. I come from Bulacan. I have five siblings. Before I knew Christ, my life was intricate and I was rebellious with my parents. I tried to find love with friends and through my habits. I love music which is why when I was in high school, I always played guitar, but it didn’t satisfy me. I felt that no one loves me. But when my father became a Christian he told me to go to church too.

I was involved in youth ministry and I helped conduct youth fellowship. Through those events I began to learn how much Jesus loved me. I understood what Jesus did on the cross to forgive me, which is why I committed my life to serve Him in anything that I can do. I used my talent in church as a guitarist and sometimes leading in singing during Sunday Worship. I explored more in music and also learned how to play drums and piano.

One day, Ptra. Irene, the daughter of my senior pastor, asked me if I want to became a missionary. She told me all about CWTP and what this organization was doing. After many days, weeks and months of prayer I decided to join their training to become missionary. Now, I am officially a missionary. I graduated the Missionary in Training program in December, 2014. My area of ministry is in Towerville 6, a relocation site in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan. I teach music in our area, especially to the youth. Through teaching music, I get to share the Gospel with them.
