Bible knowledge and ministry confidence

Total Surrender to God

My name is Leonila Ganir from Saskatchewan, Canada. However, my country of origin is the Philippines. I am currently running an approved home to look after adults with mental health issues and drug addictions. I am also a Small Group leader and Children’s Bible teacher. Being a student at the Christian Leaders Institute equips me with Bible knowledge and ministry confidence in sharing about God.

My Story

Growing up, I went to a Catholic church in our local area run by nuns and a priest. My parents nurtured me and taught me about Jesus. However, no one in our family read the Scripture. In the year 2005, I totally ignored the teaching of my parents and went my own way. I lived with my boyfriend. We continually sinned against God for almost three years. However, God loves me and that is why He exposed what I was doing in secret.

In Romans 3:23, it says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God (ESV).” I also know God saved me by grace. “For by grace you have been saved through faith.” I have the confidence of salvation because Jesus came into the world to save sinners.

Now married for 16 years, we have three boys. We serve God in our local church, together with our kids. God uses me as a Small Group Leader and a Children Bible teacher. In my weakness He restored me. I didn’t deserve a gift, but He is faithful to give me the gift of salvation! In response to that gift, I live every aspect of my life to the glory of God and used by Him all the days of my life. I surrender daily to His will.

Bible Knowledge and Ministry Confidence

I thank my Pastor as she mentors me and is instrumental in my spiritual growth. I am also thankful to the Christian Leaders Institute. The Bible knowledge and ministry confidence learned at CLI help me to share God’s Word more effectively with my small group and the children at our church.

May my testimony draw you closer to God. I pray that you believe and receive Jesus in your life. Pray and ask God to forgive you. Once I was lost, but now I am found, and I am all His!
