Letter from Lolita Delarosa Concerning Our Ministry and Mission - 28 Oct 2005

Dear Mary and Frank,

Hi there! I am Lolita Delarosa, and was born in the Philippines in 1960.

As I read your mission and purpose in life, It touches my heart and that made me write you these comments about your concern toward God's creation. I believed

God is answering your prayer because you have the wisdom to deliver this message to people. I feel like I am connected with your concern in life.

I grew up in a family who are meat eater and were not aware about health.

In my young age, I suffered so much in many ways until I reach 34 years old.

In November 1994, I didn't sleep for six nights and I wondered why. On the seventh day evening, I was already dying. So I prayed to God, I said, God why am I suffering like this, I know I did not do any mortal sin, but I know I made a lot of mistake. So I heard the voice saying "BECAUSE YOU KILL LOTS OF ANIMALS LIKE THEM". I was shocked when I heard this voice that made me understand what it meant right away, where I didn't have an idea about vegetarian diets at all. So, in the morning, I said to God, " God I am not gonna eat meat anymore, if I am going to get sick, it is not your will, but if I am going to become healthy, it is your will. So, I stand up with my promises to the Lord. I became well. In June 2004, I decided to become vegan. I feel much better.

I attended the Pilipino Seventh Day Adventist Church in downtown Toronto in 2003, where none of them are vegetarian. It challenged me, so I decided to joined them. Now, since this year, members are required to bring only vegetarian food in our potluck.

I thank God for giving us a chance to get to know him, his beauty, love and purity. I also thank God for the people like you who's life's are 100% dedicated to God.

It's my pleasure to support in prayer, if possible.

May God bless you more and more with your mission in life.

Thank you for your kind consideration.

With Love

Dear Lolita:

Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging words and for telling us about yourself and what is happening in your life and church.

We believe that God reaches out and touches everyone, but unfortunately many people don't listen, and even fewer follow through on the mission that God has for each of us. We are so happy to hear that you've listened, and are following God's will for your life.

We also host a veg-Christian email discussion list that might be of interest to you. If you are interested, please let us know.

We look forward to hearing from you again.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
