My name is KR Alipala I live in the Philippines and I was raised in Muntinlupa City, in 2009 my family moved in Calamba Laguna. I studied Nursing in Manila and finished school in October 2007.
My curiosity about Jesus began in 2011 and in 2012 I decided to receive Jesus Christ to be the Lord and Savior of my life. From then, I joined all training at church and was consistent in attending small group meetings. Tech/Media was the first Ministry that I joined at church, I was a worship clicker in my previous church. In 2013, God placed a desire in my heart that I will plant churches on every campus and in every mountain.
I took the nursing board exam in December 2013, God had given me a word in
Philippians 3:12 “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I PRESS ON to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.”
and when the result was released on January 19, 2014, I passed! My breakthrough year started since then. In the 2nd to 3rd quarter of 2014, I had to leave my previous church for a personal reason. I prayed and asked God to which church will He wanted me to be planted.
I searched google and facebook, went to few churches but my spirit says “no not here”. I continued praying and told God “I want to go back serving You”. Then I found this guy’s video on facebook and added him as a friend. One morning he chats “have we met before?” he was Oliver Tham and we had a little chat and I was encouraged when he said “God allowed many churches to be built by many different people so that you can feel his love in different facets of his diamond. Just enjoy God’s love with no self-condemnation.” he suggested me to go in New Life Sta.Rosa and grow in there, 2 weeks later I went there. That Sunday, the pastor called out for volunteers to evangelize Calamba because they are planting a church. I went a few times to that week of Holy Ghost Blasts and that one night changed me. I had an encounter with God and was filled with the Holy Spirit, slain in the floor for about 15 to 30 minutes, I couldn’t move, I couldn’t stop shouting and crying, I don’t understand all I know was God is alive, God is real. I came back the next evening with my Papa who was sick of Kidney Failure and the following Sunday Mama went with me. The next month my parents decided to be baptize proclaiming Jesus to be their Lord and Savior. My family was converted to Christianity that instantly after our experience with the Holy Spirit.
I was practicing OB Nursing from December 2014 to May 2015. Then God made a situation that made me choose to enter Bible School, it was actually a training center. June 2015, I enrolled to NLTC (New Life Training Center – Sta. Rosa) a nine-month Ministerial Training. In December of 2015 during our local mission in Davao while my teacher whom also my pastor, Dr. Tom Molina. While he was preaching, he challenged the congregation to raise their hands if God is calling you to plant a church. I raised my hand and he called us to come in front to pray for us. God gave me a vision in 2013 to plant churches in campuses and in the mountains, it was not pastoring or building a church. But people, small groups, as individuals being a church himself.
I graduated the training in March of 2016 and I entered full-time ministry April 14, 2016. Now I lead bible studies to youth and campuses, I teach at Kid’s Sunday School, I also do Mountain Evangelism in Open Climb Events that I organize which started in July 2015.
