I'm the lead pastor of Word International Ministries in Dipolog City, Zambaonga del Norte, Philippines. Before going into full-time ministry, I wrote and edited in various print publications in my country. I live alone in the parsonage of my church with 4 cats. My wife and best friend, Alma, went to be with the Lord in 2010 after battling breast cancer. I have one daughter, Donna Abello, who lives in another city with her own family. My passion is helping other pastors self-publish their books.
