Godjell’s Journey:

I’m Godjell M. Quinones. My wife is a preschool teacher in our church and teaches 30 children. Before I was a Christian, people called me “Christ,” because I worked in the cock-fighting arena as the person who was at the center and asked for money for the two fighting cocks. That was during my high school and college days.

I received God as my personal Lord and Savior June 18, 2006. At that time, God called me to work for His ministry in our church in Payatas. At that time I helped with the feeding program, youth ministry, and Bible studies for mothers in our community. Shortly after that, I decided to join Companion With the Poor.

Godjell’s Mission:

Currently, I am a church planter assigned in Southville 8B-Phase-5, Villa San Isidro, Montalban, Rizal. I am working with my teammates Flor Encomio and Pastor Winston. As part of our church planting team, my assignment is to create sports activities that will bring unbelievers to Christ. I want to have 10 disciples in the next three years of my assignment in Villa San Isidro community. I want to see myself serving in the Kingdom of God for rest of my life.
