Wyden King: God's Triumph over Anito

Wyden King
Anito is the term used by early Filipinos to their gods and idols during the pre-Spanish time. They used this idols to asks guidance. In speaking of Anito, this not only refers to the early beliefs of the Filipinos but in Manila it is the place where lovers usually met. It is one of the popular motels in Manila that forbidden relationships are a common-place.
In the early 1970's the father of Wyden King built the first Anito motel in Pasay City, the business grew to fourteen motels with one in every highly populated city in Metro Manila by 1994.
Wyden King is the Chairman of the Board/President of Armadillo Holdings, Inc. He is into business of office leasing, development, wet and dry markets, laundry and hotels. He graduated High School from La Salle Greenhills and college at Ateneo de Manila University. He and his wife Aida have three children, Guineevere, Celine Marie and Gerovy Vincent.

Although his life had the trapping of success, but did not know peace. His spirit was restless and his lonelines did have not a name. He search for peace through his own effort. He explored New Age books, Yoga, Zen Buddhism. He has a personal yoga instructor. Besides all those things unknown to his wife and children he has a mistress who keeps on pressuring him to leave his family.
Changes really happens to Mr. King sometimes in 1986 he was introduced to a certain Nanay Cora Santos who served as his adviser. Her advice however, had a recurrent theme: "SUrrender your life to GOD." Unknown to him the Holy Spirit's work had already begun to him. Finally in 1992 he accepted Christ into his life and began a gradual surrender. The first thing was he had been delivered from the bondage of lust. He started to know his wife and started all over again. He always left room for quality time in the midst of his various business and social commitments.
In his business ventures the Lord have works also. The Lord gave him a burden of Kingdom building in his office. He brought the Church into the office. The Word of God, prayer, and worship became integral parts of their corporate life. The Lord placed a conviction in his heart to stop building and expanding the motel business. They explores another business ventures, they invested in low-cost housing, public markets, hotels and other new ventures gradually phasing out the motel operations. They converted one of their motels into Legend Airport Manor; two were converted into Kabayan Hotels, and converting the Anito-Cuneta into "Status-Married Couple's Place". In its place, they conceivedof an establishment where married couples could go where they could spend sometime to renew and strengthen their commitment to one another. Couples have to present proof of marriage only during the first time they come.
Today Wyden King continues his pursuit of building another kind of building. They have now churches in all the their establishment and business. His family, the company officers, managers and taff members take active part in dawn watches, morning devotions, cell meetings, equipping seminars and worship celebration. Truly Wyden King's life God proved once again that He triumph over anito.


  1. To be subjected to God's will is not only to give Him priority in our lives but to give Him full control...

    We must leave the life we planned in order to accept the life that God prepared for us...


  2. The Lord's plans for us is to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. GOD BLESS YOU KALI...

  3. Good day! I have been struggling from the bondage of sin and I must admit that I am drowning. Please help me in prayers. . Is there any way that I could send an email to Mr. Wyden King? All I need is prayer.Please, I need help. .

  4. I was at the Atrium (Limketkai, Cagayan de Oro) when Prophet Cindy Jacobs and her husband came for the prophetic gathering. It was the very first time that I started praying and renounce all forms of idols which I considered a stronghold deep within my being. There were times when I thought of ending the life God has entrusted to me but I guess, God has continually held my hand. At the moment, there is a huge part of my life that needs healing and perhaps I could start working it out if I could bring it to the open through prayer assistance that I badly need right about now. I don't know if this message would be addressed immediately, but I'm having this faith that this could be answered anytime soon. If by any chance that anybody (from the admin of this page) read this message, please let me know through tuazonmae@yahoo.com. Please, I beg of you, I need help. I feel so hopeless that I resort to posting my comment here. Thank you and God Bless.

  5. The butterfly is one of the most beautiful creatures that God has ever created.

    It has to be born twice in one lifetime and lives two complete lives.

    From a butterfly egg to a caterpillar which may look like an ugly worm, a great change will occur and the caterpillar will begin to spin a cocoon and stays there for several weeks.

    The caterpillar encases itself in a chrysalis. When metamorphosis is complete, a beautiful creature emerges reborn with a new life, fully winged, then it flies around.

    Like the caterpillar, a Christian is born again and made new like a beautiful butterfly.

    Our present life makes us ugly like the worm, but when we are born from above or born of the Holy Spirit, we become like a beautiful butterfly.

    When you see a butterfly flap its wings, remember like the butterflies, born again Christians will fly in freedom and victory and someday meet the Lord Jesus in the air.

    As the Lord said long time ago, And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

    The only way we can have our sins forgiven; the only way we can have eternal life in Heaven and the only way we can have your name written in Heaven or in the Lamb’s Book of Life, is by what the Lord Jesus Christ told to a religious man named Nicodemus: "Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again." (John 3:7 kjv).
