Today marks the 122nd birthday of Felix Ysagun Manalo who reestablished the Church of Christ on the 27th of July, 1914 in the Philippines. The strength and integrity of the Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) is no doubt attributable to his unending sacrifice, perseverance and spiritual strength. His withstanding of the trials and tribulations that came his way truly did not come in vain, seeing the product of his toils. The resilient and respected Iglesia ni Cristo stands proud today, thanks to his strength and bravery. We members of the Iglesia ni Cristo will forever be grateful to him, and to the Lord God for sending him to reestablish the Church Christ built in the first century.
