A tribute to Pastor Emmanuel Quizon’s Birthday
Pastor Emmanuel T. Quizon, a humble and sage person, a father of three and a father to all celebrated his 67th birthday last July 21, Monday, along with the school’s Foundation Day and Nutrition Month.
It was a festive and joyous day for everyone. As he stepped into the stage, the Choristers began to sing his favorite song “No One Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus”, a song which tells us about how Jesus loves us unconditionally and He will always be there for us. While the Choristers were singing, they gave “Doc” and his wife lovely red roses. After that, he looked upon the young audiences and began to preach. He talked about his childhood of how they were contented of what they had and how he dreamed. He dreamt so high like they were touching the clouds, “libre lang mangarap kaya taasan nyo pa!”. As a young boy, he dreamt and dreamt and used those dreams to be his goals in life. Don’t just give your dreams limitations, live it up and make it your plan. Make it real and not just your “Little Daydreams”, work hard for it and pray for it and God will give it to you. Those dreams could change the world, never be afraid of dreaming.
He also thanked God of what he has given him. Because of God, his dreams became true and he is contented of what he is now.
After he finished preaching, the teachers brought in the cake and everybody sang a birthday song. You could see his joy covering up the age on his face. And of course, he thanked the Lord for giving him another year and to everyone who inserted effort on his day. He was just once a boy who dreamt of the world and now he is an inspiration to the world.
