People behind the history
About Four years ago, a group of certain individuals called “Prayer Partners” met in the Holy Rosary Church Parish-Doha, Qatar in the office of the then Filipino Assistant Parish Priest Father Zacarias “Zakki” Parra. The group spearheaded by overall coordinator Bro Ronald Tinao, Bro Erick Landicho and Sis Carmela Balanag, (which later on became the first council) asked permission to Father Zakki if it would be possible to have a Prayer Group of El Shaddai here in Doha, they got the approval subsequently. Indeed, as the Bible says in Ecc. 3-“Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses”, unknowingly the hands of God started to move. The manifestation of the Holy Spirit at the onset slowly did its part through these power-filled individuals. Thus, the inception of the largest Catholic Christian Charismatic group in the Philippines – El Shaddai DWXI PPFI, formally sets its Congregation in Doha, Qatar.
The members dramatically grew in numbers, reaching throughout every Filipino working in this land. The Friday prayer meetings was seemingly unbelievable, from small group of less than 20 people from day one, turned into a jump-packed standing room of more than hundreds of attendees on a regular basis was such overwhelming. From that day on till today, the quality of spirituality the El Shaddai Ministry brings along its members are amazingly incomparable. People changed from their old habits & vices, moving away from their chaotic life by not conforming to the standards of this world Rom 12:2 and fixing their eyes into Jesus Heb. 12:2 does made significant transformation accompanied by Love, Peace & Joy are evident through the lives of each and every members. We are therefore the living testimonies of God’s amazing Grace!
In celebration of the El Shaddai-Qatar 4th year anniversary, we continuously invite people, seek lost souls and attract individuals who want to experience and have close relationship with Jesus, for we must not become tired of doing good 2Thes 3:13.”Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, as some are doing” Heb.10:24. Be part of this life-changing experience and receive numerous miracles and blessings from Yahweh-El Shaddai (the El-God, Shaddai-Almighty). Jer 29:11'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12'Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
