We rarely reflect on the mystery of how a seed, when planted, germinates and grows into a plant and yields fruit. Only when it falls on good soil, and is nurtured and fertilized can it reap good fruit. The same can be said of the Kingdom of God.
Christianity also began with a small number of people but now one-third of the world’s population is Christian. When we evangelize we may speak to small numbers, but these handful grow into thousands and millions. Our mission in life is to sow the seed and be faithful to God.

Founder of the Couples for Christ (CFC) community. Way back in 1981, CFC was started through the initiative of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon Community (LNP). In January 1981, LNP gathered 16 couples who went through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, with the intent of bringing them into LNP. But instead they were kept together for a few months after the program, until it was decided that a new group would be established to emphasize family life renewal. It would be an outreach of LNP. Frank and Gerry Padilla were among the 16 couples that became members in June of 1981 when CFC was born. Frank quickly emerged to be a top leader, and in 1985, he was already the Executive Director, running the day-to-day work of the whole community. In 1986 he went full-time for CFC and has been serving the community since, through two separate splits the community saw. Today he serves as the Servant General of CFC-FFL (Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life).
