‘Isang Araw Lang’ (Just for a Day)
… The pulse beat of this author’s community beat recently came upon several emerging Filipino Americans who want to penetrate the Hollywood market and have the passion to earn awards and recognition. Last weekend the most impressive Bakit (Why), heavily projecting themselves as focused to attain their goal, and strengthen a relationship to reach the mainstream niche for always an open opportunity to recognize the minorities. And that definitely was depicted last Saturday, in eth evening, all overflowing and enthused to film their activities …

Making this premiere succeed is to do all kinds of possible medium or media to spread the word. UNTV North America News Bureau Chief Bro. Noli Saballa, and some of his staffers had the privilege of knowing each other in several community events.

Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel said that “This is because they don’t have any personal interest in the charity that they are conducting, managing, and promoting, neither do they gain any personal benefit out of such charities.” …

Also Bros. Eli and Daniel also informs the public that they have founded the Kamanggagawa Foundation that launched the only Transient House [Home] in the Philippines that provide shelter and safety for the homeless but also provide meals before bedtime and also before they leave the House [Home] in the morning …

Getting a fast glimpse of the Church activities, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel admittedly are implementing a highly impacting concept of various projects such as Feeding Care Program for malnourished children; Free Dialysis Program for the destitute; Orphanages for the homeless; and a special program for physically-challenged and handicapped individuals. These services are availed of by the members of the Church, but some are also benefited from these other non-member as beneficiaries as the love and compassion should not only be to their brethren but also outside the Church, especially to the less fortunate, and the poor, “especially whose hope to eat three times a day hangs on a thread. “In this case, they are not only exclusive but inclusive,” as admittedly showing in the belief enunciated by their church …

Daniel Razon produced a very unique and independent type of a movie he tells it to all “that invokes a tremendous effect on everyone that realizes the power of change one will inflict on the lives of the needy in one day aptly titled ‘Isang Araw Lang,’” (Just for a Day) …

    “Isang Araw Lang, the Movie”- a very inspiring movie…amazing and really different from other movies… This is a very good start for Kuya Daniel and I’m hoping thru the help of God..more movies will come out that will tackle the true story or essence of life…depicts what is nature…and not a FANTASY- wherein you will never get anything from it, it will only mislead the public..

    Thanks be to God – for Bro Eli and Bro Daniel…May God always bless you..We love you! SANA PO THERE WILL BE A TIME THAT WE’LL SEE YOU…FACE TO FACE…just like before..

    1 Kings 3:11-14 (King James Version)

    11And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

    12Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee…. Read More

    13And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

    14And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

    But King Solomon did not heed God’s admonition. Let us all learn from Solomon. We will walk God’s way, and everything will be added unto us!

    Thanks be to God.
