Added at Youtube: October 15, 2006:

Nanay in this old hi-8 video greets the family in the US and sings to the family in Imus, Cavite. She just came in from the hospital but still tries to greet and cheer up everybody around her. It’s been more than seven years now and Nanay has sadly crossed over but joyfully joined our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We still miss her terribly. Tatay, likewise, expressed concern for the family and for the church work in California. -glenn

Dear Family and Friends,
Thank you all for your presence during this time of grief for the physical loss of our beloved Tatay, but more appropriately, as you join us in grateful celebration ofa life devotedly lived for Christ. Truly werejoice and we celebratebecause on December 26, 2007, he responded to another call – to join a host of believers in Christ – the cloud of witnesses who adored, loved and served the Lord just like he did. Among them is our dear mother Eugenia who waited for him for five long years – wishing all these years that he joins her to enjoy the wonderful promisedspiritual blessings that she has so abundantly received that he missed all these years as he tarried on humanity’s temporary abode called “earth”.
He lived a simple, humble life – but is now glorified with the heavenly Father he loved, adored and served – to reign eternally with the Lord and Savior who loved and died for him as co-heirs of the promised riches in heaven. Is that not something to celebrate?
In Christ,
Glenn A. Bautista

Philippians 1: 21 – “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain”. – Christ means everything to me in this life, and when I die I’ll have even more.

“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25:23

.Rev. I. P. Bautista

.

Ignacio Pinpin Bautista, an elder and minister of the United Methodist Church and tireless servant of the Lord for many decades, died peacefully in his home on December 26, 2007. He was 95, and a resident of California, USA.

Born February 2, 1912 in Mexico, Pampanga, he grew up and lived most of his working life in Tarlac and many other provinces in the Philippines. For a time he worked as a bus conductor for La Mallorca Pambusco where he met Eugenia, a passenger and a fresh deaconess graduate from Harris Memorial Training School, who would later become his wife and change his life forever. Courting Eugenia paved the way for him to understand and embrace the Protestant faith.

He entered the ministry in 1945 and attended school at the Union Theological Seminary in Manila. He completed his bachelor’s degree in Theology in 1952. In the same year, he was ordained as a minister of the United Methodist Church. He took Advance Theological Studies in New York at the theological seminary there from 1962 to 1963.

Before he knew it, he became a district superintendent of the UMC and was entrusted with various other leadership roles in the church. This allowed him to visit numerous provinces in the Philippines and gave him opportunities to evangelize and build churches for the UMC. He earned the distinction of being called the “builder Pastor”. His parishioners loved him for his dedication to his calling. He opted to stay just as a simple pastor serving his church through evangelization and church construction. He emigrated to the United States in 1979 in preparation for his retirement. But his mission was not meant to be over. There, with renewed strength, he continued to spread the Word of God and founded the First Filipino United Methodist Church in Covina, California.

Throughout the years, many trials came to his family of nine children, but he overcame them all because of his passion and devotion to serve the Lord. He, together with wife Eugenia, produced a brood of faithful servants who, while mourning his loss, celebrate the abundant life he lived: children Necy, Ruth, Loie, Jun, Miriam, Glenn, Edwin and John; children-in-law Fil, Usig, Gely (deceased), Erling, Julie, Lorna, Riza, Tess; grandchildren John, Willy, Sonny, Bes, Carol, Doris, Dick, Charlie, April, Dondon, TJ, Dandan, Dindin, Kiko and David; grandchildren-in-law Tes, Arni, Richard, Arlyn, Doriene, Dana and Princess; and great-grandchildren Luther, Lien, Sarah, Zeke, Zach, Dawn, Dusk, Chloe and Charlene.

Hi dear Bes,

Thanks for your timely response> I was just thinking it would be a good thing if Sonny can video-interview Zeke & Zach just like what I did for Dindin- – and upload it at youtube. Pastor Jun and the rest can do this as well, of course anybody who has a digital camera with the video feature. Just make sure that even for a short time, embedding the video (sharing options) is allowed so I can feature these videos at our blog-site for Tatay & Nanay.

I still have a lot of pix & videos to upload . . hay, sabi nga ni Doris, parang d na matatapos!

Take care, luv u

Uncle, ganda ng taped testimonial ni Dindin! Pati yung sa tatlo was fun, esp the part with Lolo and Lola. Si Mommy tawa ng tawa! We (3 of us) watched both videos last night. Sana uncle you can also do one of Charlie (kung may time pa). Sa dami ninyong magkakapatid, nagkaroon ng two generations ang mga apo ni Lolo: the first from Kuya Jun to Charlie, and the younger generation from Dondon to David. And from ‘our generation’ Charlie seemed to have had the most special relationship with Lolo, having lived with Lolo and Lola during that period of Lolo’s life when he was an active servant of the Church here in the Philippines. Lolo had been a “Lolo” for more than 40 years! Maybe Charlie can give us a picture of a younger Lolo Asyong.

Just some thoughts… I hope I’m not imposing. Thanks for the videos, and for providing us with a repository (quite useful indeed!) in your blogsite.

Dear Eunice, Ruth, Jun, Loida, Mir, Glenn and Johnny (and your loved ones):.
.
I send you the embrace of our love, the comfort and assurance of our faith in God through Jesus Christ during this time of grief and loss — you have lost a caring, loving and good father. We, in the UMC community, have lost a man of faith, a faithful servant of the Lord, respected colleague in ministry, friend and mentor to many pastors, a pastor whose visions and dedication to the work of the Lord inspired many to give their best — a child of God who, in many ways, became an effective instrument of God’s grace during his earthly journey! My wife and I feel deep sorrow because of his death but, at the same time, joy and exaltation because of a life well-lived. We thank God for the blessing that was D.S. Bautista!D. S. and Nanay were just like “Tatay” and “Nanay” to us when we were in Quezon City (Kamuning and, then, San Francisco Del Monte) and, especially, when we were in Bicol (Daet, Camerines Norte). D. S. and I enjoyed some very happy, meaningful and inspiring times during our ministry in Daet. I can almost still see his smiles … hear his laughter … feel his fatherly/friendly embrace. His affirmation, his trust and support during that time enabled me … energized me to, with abandon, use and share the gifts and skills in ministry that God had given me. The result was a life and ministry for us (my family and our faith community in Daet) which, we were sure, made our God smile in approving ways upon us. Before I left for the USA to study, again, it was D. S. who was with me, giving me some very affirming and encouraging words. And when I was already working/serving in Canadian churches, we had had some opportunity to re-connect … converse on the phone. Similarly, D. S. was there … showering me with affirmation and support, sharing laughter on the phone (that, while I am typing this e-mail, I can still hear.. can still feel the love, the caring and trust in his voice; and, of course, the “pagbibiro” … the “panunukso” …).It was a few years ago, he was already feeling the limitations of aging, when he told me, “… naiinip na nga ako, Gani. Ready na ako pero ayaw pa akong kunin.” I knew he was ready to leave this world to be with his Lord in the Kingdom of eternal joy and rest. He has finished the race, he is now wearing the crown that he fully deserves!Last year, it was July, when I last called to tell him of our relocation to Vancouver. He no longer was able to talk (Mir told me) but Mir let me talk with him. I did. And while I was talking with him, Mir told me that his reaction was “he knew me … he remembered me.. and appreciated my calling …” That felt good!
May you continue to allow the Spirit to support and sustain you these days. Our loving God is near and, in many differenr ways, makes his love real to you (especially, during this time of loss and sorrow).I want to share a prayer by Joyce Rupp (taken from her book, Praying our Goodbyes):”… Jesus, to the very end you lived our humanity, that life where one must always let go, must pass through death to enter into the fullness of life, that life where joy never completely buries sadness, where we move through days that demand goodbyes and come to moments that leave us no choice but to bid farewell to our loved ones.
… Jesus remind me in my own sad-heart time not to lose sight of the other side of ache, that glorious moment of happy homecoming, waiting for all of us in the loving hello of the Father. Send your Spirit to deepen my faith and to soften my sadness so that the vision of homecoming hopes will overpower the aches and struggles in all of life’s farewells and goodbyes. Sustain me in this time of grief and comfort me as I experience this great loss in my life. Amen

HI Pres. Pete!
Happy new year to you!
May I please ask for Glenn’s cell number and landline number? I know I got it from him during the district christmas party at tito Ato’s house. However, i lost my phone last Dec. 23 and am still in the process of reconstructing my directory. I’ve got a long way to go in getting all the numbers back.
.
I would like to personally extend my condolences to him and it will be the same for my folks too, I’m sure.

Thanks a mucho,

Thank you, PP “Romy”,

Tatay only left us physically but has only started his journey with his Maker into everlasting peace, joy and life. We may mourn his passing away here on earth but, on the other hand, in his resurrected body, it calls for a celebration in heaven! And if we truly understand this, it is also a cause for a celebration even here on earth. Like Christ, Tatay came to earth, lived, suffered and died so that others may live. In his resurrected body, he is now rejoined with my mother with all their brothers and sisters in Christ, with God the Father.

Here’s Tatay’s grandchildren video-interviewing me at my brother Johnny’s place:

When my mother suffered a fall that caused a fracture to her hip joint, the entire Bautista family was also in pain. Four days later, she left us to join our Maker.

When she left, surprisingly I felt extremely peaceful and relieved that my mother’s suffering was over. From the third floor of our house, I made my way downstairs to our library to look for the hymn Bessy, my niece, mentioned, that relates to my mother’s story about seeing children singing in her dream, in broad daylight.

After some effort, I was able to get hold of the (red-cover) Methodist Hymnal. I merely opened the hymnal and alas ! – – it opened to the song “Only Trust Him” which my mother sang when she was in terrible pain – somehow telling me that her passing away was no accident at all. ~~~>:) glenn

EXCERPTS from LOLA’S LETTER

Sent in by Bessy Rifareal (January 8, 2002)

.

One night I could not sleep, not even a wink because of my hard breathing. I sat up to ease my breathing and prayed really hard to God to touch me and help me. After that I kept still. Then, I decided to look for a prayer song, so I got Tatay’s hymnal. This was 12:00 midnight.

I looked over the pages for a while and then found a song which has the words in the chorus: “Only trust Him, only trust Him now. He will save you, He will save you, He will save you now.” When I looked at the verses, I did not know the tune so I studied the notes until I learned it . . . The title of the song is “Come Every Soul by Sin Oppressed” . . This is the song I often sing as a prayer.

What I would really like to tell you is about my experience during my last week in the hospital. It is something I do not understand . . . I was drinking fruit juice as it was time for morning snack. Suddenly, in front of me I saw three cute little girls, neatly dressed and dancing gracefully under some tall trees on a grassy ground, twisting their arms and legs beautifully. I was looking at them and enjoying it, but at the same time I was wondering what I was seeing in such broad daylight . . . After some time, two more children joined the girls, one on each side, but they did not dance. Then, they all disappeared.

Later that day, while I was having lunch, I heard a voice singing the song I tried to sing that midnight I could not breathe: “Come Every Soul by Sin Oppressed”. I couldn’t place where the voice was coming from, but there she was singing my prayer song over and over again . . . The following day, while I was lying down resting and wide awake, once again I saw a big group of children under several tall trees, standing in front of me on the right side. They were all looking at where I was. For a while I looked at them in silence. Then I began to say something. I said, “Do you know what, I have a friend. His name is Jesus. He is my best friend, because He loves me so much and I love Him, too. All these years, he cared for me and gave me all that I need, like food, clothing, the house where I live, my loving parents, my brothers and sisters, and my friends. Because He was the One who made all things, He loves all the children of the world, even if they do not know Him.

“You may not know Him but he knows every one of you . . . He loves every one of you.” I sang all the children’s songs I remember, and they all listened. Meanwhile, while I was singing, I saw more children coming toward us from every direction untill all the children were gathered in front of me. (At that moment I thought of the children of Afghanistan) They were so many, I enjoyed singing to them all the children’s songs I remember, and telling them about Jesus’ love for them. It took quite a while, then they disappeared. I really do not know if I was singing loud enough for the patients around to hear. If I were, they might think I was out of my mind.

Dear Glenn, Ate and kuya Fil, Ate Loie,
Hope medyo relax na kayo dyan after the series of events that struck our lives. Although our grieving process is just sinking in, I’m sorry to tell you that kuya Ely is not doing well. Because kuya Ely was confined in the hospital for five months now, has frequent cardiac arrest lately, now hooked on a respirator, the Apolinario family have decided not to prolong kuya’s sufferings. Tomorrow the respirator will be disconnected and kuya Ely will stay in hospice facility. This info was phoned by ate Auring this early evening. Our hearts and prayers for ate Mila. How will she handle all of this? She herself is not feeling well. Because of her stress, fatigue, etc… she is seriously ill with advance abdominal cancer. Jun and i can’t believe this is happening to them.
Hope nakarating yung mga taster’s choice coffees and boxes of chocolates @ 2 for each family including Dick and Rev. Jun.
Ate Loie, I just read your email. We will pray for Lien. She will be OK because she is surrounded with love and a faithful child of God.

Hi Ate Julie,Kamusta na po kayo? Nakakagulat po talaga ang inyong balita dahil ng huling nagsulatan si Ate Mila at Glenn sa email ay masaya at puno ng pag asa si Ate Mila dahil sa bumubuting kalagayan ni Kuya Ely. Siguro nga po ay wala na tayong magagawa kundi ipanalangin na lamang natin ang kalagayan ni Ate Mila. The Lord knows best.Ok naman po sila Ate Necy at Kuya Fil, Edwin at Miriam. Medyo nagkasakit konti sila Ate Necy from Hawaii at si Ate Miriam pagkatapos ng libing. Ok na sila ngayon at naghahanda ng umuwi dyan.Ingat po. Lorna / Glenn
ps: salamat po pala ng marami sa mga chocolates at coffee na ipinadala ninyo.

Hi Carol,

It’s good to hear from you. Yes, we will take care of your Mom and Dad. They are a bit rested now and are on their way to being with a few friends. They are soon going to Olongapo maybe with the Sanoys. Take care.

    Glenn,
    Glad to receive your response to that “test/game.” How have you been? I have been thinking of you. Did you get to see all those orcas? And the man and woman from China in their exceptional performance?
    I want to share with you something about my experience last Wednesday when I went out to play a round of golf —- I had a very BAD game (only two pars, bogeys and double-bogeys) and not only the score, I felt (and it showed) that I was out of any kind of rhythm; I played like a beginner — almost embarrassing!!!
    But the “other side of the mountain” is what I really want to share with you … I played with two men (both retired, in their early, mid 70s). Appeared decent both as players of the game and people. We really had a good time … there seemed to be a real good connection that was developed among us … a lot of laughter, joking, needling … supporting and encouraging each other. It felt there was a “special kind of energy … spirit” that was there when we were playing. When they found out that I was a pastor, they freely and confidently shared with me a number of personal things about themselves. And I was there simply trying to be present, sensitive and responsive to them. Found out that Bill had a hip replacement surgery eight months ago but was now feeling fine (“feels as if I did not have the surgery, PG”); that his wife had MS (both of their wives, actually); now, Jeff, the other guy I was playing with, would have ankle replacement surgery, the last week of September (Have you heard about “ankle surgery” before?); and, then, the punctuation — he told me that “next week (meaning, this week) he would have his regular cancer treatment…” When I heard that, I was really surprised … looking at him and his movements around the golf course, the way he was interacting with us, you would not think that he had been dealing with cancer for the past ten years. Wow! I shared with him (both of them, actually) that I was happy for him (them) and grateful for the way they have dealt with those physical/medical challenges that had come their way. Jeff, the guy who would have cancer treatment this week at St. Paul’s (in Vancouver) put the exclamation point —- he birdied the last hole (from about 25-20 feet, that was after Bill was saying, “you would not make it, wrong line…”)!
    After the game, they wanted to get my phone number so (they said) we could play together again. I did give them my number.
    When I got home I told Cynthia that I had a very BAD game but a very GOOD experience! I felt that my time (and presence) with them was used by the Spirit to unfold and surround us with God’s goodness and grace. The following day, Bill was calling and wanted to know if I would be willing to play with them next week. I asked him if Jeff would be able to make it. He said, “Yes, he will be there.” I said, “I thought he would his regular treatment …”His response, “I know but he will be there.”

    Hi, Glenn!
    Wow! What an appropriate affirmation of your gifts and skills (from God, nurtured by your personal discipline and creativity … your openness to what The Greatest Artist unfolds and blesses your path in life with.
    Thanks for sharing the material with me.

    Yes, PastorG . . something better can always come from something bad, hehe . . .
    That’s why the Jews have two jars left and right of their main door. Dark stone to the left into the jar, for a bad day, and light stone to the right into the jar, for a good day. At the end of the year they count to find out if that year was good or bad year.
    Thanks for sharing . .
