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.
Let's face it. It takes money to run our ministries. If the Good Samaritan didn't have any money, he would not have been able to help the man beaten half to death by robbers. However, in these times of economic downturns, it's getting more difficult to solicit funds.
This is why I wrote this book. I'm a retired pastor and I had to find ways to fund my ministries.
These ten sermons were compiled primarily to give the pastor or minister ideas for his/her next sermons. However, because they are in outline form, they give the busy pastor a ready sermon for those rare cases he/she wasn't able to prepare one.
In Heavenly Realms: Sermons from the Book of Ephesians is a series of sermons I gave in my tenure as Lead Pastor in one of the local churches in my city. I had compiled these sermons primarily to give ideas to pastors and ministers as they prepare for their Sunday talks.
