In an event held at the historic Metropolitan Theatre in Manila, last September 17, 2022, the Gawad Pilipino 2022 Icon Awards recognized Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy’s invaluable contribution to nation-building.
Appointed Son of God
Last July 20, 2022, the National Academy of Security and Defense Planning (NASDP), Globe Eagle University (GEU), and the United Nations Intergovernmental Organizations (UN-IGO) conferred to Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy three (3) honorary doctoral degrees as well as twelve (12) other awards and recognition for his initiatives, accomplishments, and efforts towards nation-building.
They were a small group of people — mostly mountain folk from a once unknown place called Tamayong, Davao City in the southern part of the Philippines — blessed and fortunate to witness the extraordinary event that took place on March 20, 1974.
“Gamiton ta ka” (or I will use you) — three (3) words in Cebuano that changed the course of Pastor Apollo Quiboloy’s life. There were just a handful of people – a few families, some younger ones who were single and alone. They were a ragtag group of mountain folk having one remarkable thing in common. They all witnessed the extraordinary event that took place on March 20, 1974.
Every little way you are helping the Ministry of the Appointed Son of God shall come back to you tenfold. One day, you will hear a voice say, “When I was hungry, you fed Me. When I was thirsty, you gave Me drink. When I was naked, you clothed Me.”
Being the center of the Father’s affection and being the apple of the Father’s eye. That is the best. Why do I say that? Because whenever I am going through so much oppression, even when I was in Tamayong, that is the only thing that I hear from the Father, “My Son, I love you.” And that resolves everything.
