El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI
El Shaddai means God Almighty. El points to the power of God Himself. Shaddai seems to be derived from another word meaning breast, which implies that Shaddai signifies one who nourishes, supplies, and satisfies. It is God as El who helps, but it is God as Shaddai who abundantly blesses with all manner of blessings.
God desires to bless man and provide in abundance all of man’s needs. This name is indicative of a God who is powerful enough to do just that. Only an all powerful God can bless all mankind with all manner of blessings.
In 1984, Mariano “Mike” Z. Velarde or Bro. Mike to the ministry members, a geodetic engineer by profession and a real estate developer, started a Catholic Charismatic Group called El Shaddai Prayer Partners Foundation, International. It was first formed in Manila, Philippines. Now, 25 years after, it has grown and spread to many parts of the world with millions of members. A lot of people in the community have been blessed and experienced healing and renewal proving to the world and to a lot of skeptics that it is indeed God’s work and as such, guided by the Holy Spirit. For if it’s not the work of God, it would not have grown to such a multitude in only 25 years of ministry.
Many people, including Filipinos, thought the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI ministry is a different religious group when in reality it is not. It is a Charismatic Community consisting of Catholic individuals. The El Shaddai ministry belongs to the Catholic Church, financially supported by its members and spiritually supported by the Church.
The Ministry conducts its weekly mass and healing rally every Saturday from 4pm-11pm in Amvel City, San Dionisio, Paranaque City, Philippines.
Besides the weekly grand event, there is a daily worship service from 6pm-9pm (except Tuesdays which is also held in Amvel City from 4pm-10pm) in its office in Amorsolo St., Makati City, Philippines. It is during Saturdays and Tuesdays that the healing message is given by the Servant Leader himself, Bro. Mike Z. Velarde. On Tuesdays, before the healing message, Bro. Mike entertains questions from some attendees and provides them with enlightened answers.
If you want to experience God in your life, you are invited to join us in our worship of the one true God through His Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and be enlightened by the power of the Holy Spirit and start living a life that is truly blessed, spiritually and financially.
Come, the Lord is calling you.
“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light.” (Mat. 11:28-30)
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
