Joy and Peping De Villa: GIGA Ventures

One of my favorite song from Don Moen Album is God is Good. Don Moen always finds a way to interacts with fellow worshippers by asking God is Good and the congregations would answers All The Time. This expressions of faith also have high impact on the story of Mr. and Mrs. Peping  and Joy De Villa of GIGA Vetures, GIGA stands for God Is Good Always.

The De Villa's have started their business in trading of imported garments and accessories but later on started on producing their very own garments, but the influx of imported Chinese goods and products and the financial crises have impacted on their business. They try to diversify and look for another source of income.

Initially they try to market their products by offering it as corporate give-aways. They focused mainly on producing natural made products specially in the soap segments although it has been dominated by large multinational companies but they keep on believing that God will always provide them the necessary markets for their products. After thorough research and product innovation they finally made their own products and marketed it on different ways and coordinating with the major malls in Metro Manila and soon in the different provinces. 

As a means of fulfilling its social responsibility, the company provides opportunities for the less privileged and special sectors of our society, e.g., physically handicapped, those undergoing rehabilitation, by jobbing out some its operations to organizations that assist them.

  1. In John chapter 3 of the bible, Nicodemus as a religious man and was called a Pharisee. Therefore, he adhered to the strictest of religious and ethical standards.

    Nicodemus was spiritually dead. He had never been born spiritually.

    That’s why the Jesus told/warn him, you can’t see (John 3:3) and you can’t enter (John 3:5) God’s kingdom unless you are born again.

    Imagine, if that person can’t see and can’t enter Heaven, he/she will definitely go to Hell without a Saviour and will be tormented by fire forever.

    Though Nicodemus was a learned man; and very intellectual person with great social standing, Jesus told him, as He says to all, "Ye must be born again."

    Here is a mystery. Nicodemus didn’t understand it.

    He asked, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? (John 3:4 kjv).

    Nicodemus thought that Jesus was referring to a return to his mother's womb. A thing that would be an absolute impossibility.

    He think of physical birth while Jesus teaches spiritual birth.

    Nicodemus is spiritually blind, dead in trespasses and sins, and need to be quickened alive or sanctified by the Holy Spirit to have all his heart opened to God and having faith in Christ.

    A blind man must have his eyes opened before he can see. As soon as his eyes are opened, he sees.

    So every human being must be born again before he can see the truth and the kingdom of God.

    In John 3:4-5, Jesus Christ explains that for a man to enter the kingdom of God he must be born of water and of the spirit.

    To be born of water means the first birth. Without having been born once, how could you be born again?

    In the first birth, you were born "of water" (the baby is surrounded by water and therefore it is really "born of water.").

    That’s why the Lord said, That which is born of the flesh is flesh.

    We are of the flesh. But Jesus said the fleshly birth or our first birth will not get us to Heaven!

    In the second birth, we are born "of the spirit" (you are born of God or born from above).

    If you are born of God, what are you then? A child of God. A son or a daughter of God!

    Our second birth, will make us become a member of the family of God --- and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (John 3:6 kjv).

    No man or organization can do anything to you that will make you a child of God.

    Only which is born of the Holy Spirit will make you a child of God because Jesus said, you must be born of the Spirit.

    The mystery is how God, in all of His holiness, can reach down and transform the life of a sinner like all of us into a saint.

    Being born again or being saved is the work of God alone. The Old Testament declares: Salvation is of the Lord (Jonah 2:9 kjv).

    And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
