Ederlyn’s Journey:

I am Ederlyn C. Rosialda, 22 yrs. Old, born on Dec.13,1989 in Brgy. Napico Mangahan Pasig city. I grew up in a Christian family, and when I was a child I regularly attended our Sunday school class where we learned about Jesus. I really experienced God’s goodness and greatness in my family. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior when I was 12 yrs. old, on April 14, 2001. From the day I experienced an encounter with Jesus I felt the burdened in my heart to share the good news of what I’ve learned, especially to children who didn’t yet know Christ. I started to teach children ages 4 to 10 in our church in Taytay, and eventually was able to teach 250 poor children from the streets.

Ederlyn’s Mission:

All throughout our time ministering to the children and adults, our church saw God’s work and blessings in our church. For the last 9 years, the Lord has really blessed our church with increased numbers of attendance, musical instruments for our worship, new leaders, new Bible studies, youth pastors, and missionaries. Eventually, God began calling me to be a missionary as well.

Currently, I serve on the Baras team with Companion With the Poor. I have been serving with Companion With the Poor (formerly Mission Ministries Philippines) since 2012. I don’t have a salary but am raising funds through my friends, relatives, churches and those who are willing to support the ministry for poor people.
