Penuel Home Residents Spends Day With Backstreet Kids
Backstreet Kids (BSK) is one of the ministries of Christ's Commission Fellowship that cares for and shares the gospel to street children and their families. This memorable outreach experience proved to be very fruitful for both the residents of Penuel Home and the underprivileged children.
The Penuel Theme Song
The Penuel Theme Song is a melodic expression of a resident's recovery experience in Penuel Home. Composed by Penuel friend and composer Gary Perez, its music was arranged by Rommel Villarico, and the vocals were by Jeffrey Hidalgo and Arnie Hidalgo. Special thanks go to all these people for the generous contribution of their time and talent (click here for MP3 and lyrics).
THE SERENITY PRAYER
God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference
Living one day at a time
Enjoying one moment at a time
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace
Taking as Jesus did
This sinful world as it is
Not as I would have it
Trusting that You will make all things right
If I surrender to Your Will
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with You forever in the next

A Ministry of CCF
Penuel Home is the banner project of Christ's Commission Fellowship's Precious Hope Ministry (PHM), whose
mission is: To glorify God by making addicts and their families committed followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. CCF believes that salvation, with its
forgiveness of sins, impartation of a new nature, and eternal life, is a
free gift from God. This gift is received when a person trusts in Jesus Christ to be his only
Savior and Lord. It is given by God's grace and cannot be earned by man through good works, baptism, church
membership or any other means.
CCF's vision is to see a movement of millions of committed followers of the Lord Jesus Christ meeting in small groups, transforming lives, families, communities and nations.
Every Sunday, Penuel residents make it a point to wake up early to take the fifteen minute drive to attend the worship service at CCF St. Francis together.
Soldier of Christ
I grew up in a Christian family and was taught Christian values at a very young age. Although Jesus Christ had always been the center of my family, I somehow managed to turn my back against Him, conforming to the pleasures of this world and experimenting with drugs at a young age. My rebellious nature and my search for happiness led me to the wrong places and the wrong people. In school I would always involve myself in mischief. I found satisfaction in disregarding rules and regulations when I was little, which eventually led to disregarding the law when I was bigger...(click to continue).
In His perfect way God can use things in our past for the advancement of His Kingdom. I began serving God as a volunteer at NextGen children's ministry until I was
invited to help at Penuel Home, CCF's Christ-centered Recovery Home. Today I am a senior facilitator of Penuel Home, where God continues to use my life to encourage men with
addictions on their journey to healing and restoration and to remind them that no matter how powerless we are over the mess we made of our lives,
God's grace is sufficient for us and that His power is made perfect in weakness

The Gift of Forgiveness
When I was a child, I inscribed in my heart that I wanted to see the world. I wanted to become a pilot because I wanted to see the world. I was upset when my father told me that I can no longer pursue this dream of becoming a pilot because of financial reasons. I was mad at him, for I really wanted to see the world.
I decided to take up Bachelor of Science in Nursing, for the same reason, I wanted to see the world. But again he objected because he doesn't want me to be just helpers to doctors. My heart seems to have been torn apart, because I could foresee the slow death of my dream of seeing the world. My resentment against my dad began, for I felt that he did not trust me the way he trusted my older siblings (click to continue).
Tagalog Serenity Prayer
Diyos ko ibigay mo sa akin ang katiwasayan
na tanggapin ang mga bagay na di ko kayang baguhin
Ang tapang upang mabago ang mga bagay na kaya ko
At ang karunungan para malaman ang kaibahan.
Mabuhay sa araw araw
Magalak sa bawat sandali
Tanggapin na ang kahirapan ay daan patungo sa kapayapaan
Katulad ng ginawa Niyang pagtanggap sa makasalanang mundong ito at hindi ng ayon sa aking kagustuhan
Magtiwala na lahat ng bagay ay gagawin Niyang tama kung susundin ko ang Kanyang kalooban
Upang matamo and kaligayahan sa mundong ito at ang lubos na kaligayahan na nasa Kanya magpakailanman sa kabilang buhay.
