Dela Rosa Family
Elena Dela Rosa was born on May 25, 1971. She is a strong and caring mother and a loving wife. She married her husband Gerald Dela Rosa on March 28, 1999. God blessed them with five healthy children.
Before Elena and her family joined Love Church, they were involved with the Latter-Day Saints (Mormonism) Church. They were very committed to the church. Elena, her husband, and three of her children were baptized at The Latter-Day Saints. However, the Mormon church did not provide the hope and help they needed. There was no character transformation for her husband, who had squandered most of their hard-earned income on alcohol, cigarettes, and gambling. Elena also admitted she would use profane language and nagged her husband so he would not want to spend a second with her.
Due to bad habits and low income, they were only eating one meal a day, and the kids were starved to skin and bones. Elena’s husband is a street vendor, which provides little income each day. He struggles to bring food to the table, since he loses most of his income on gambling tables.
It was 2014 when Elena heard about a missionary who was planting a church in her neighborhood. Disappointed with her previous church, she decided to try this new one out. The teaching at the new church was relevant to her life and the practical action plans changed her husband’s behavior. More than that, two of her children are now being sponsored via Boat Kids Club. Now negative thoughts and languages have evaporated from her mind, all she believes is the positivity of God’s word.
Through CRAM Worldwide’s community development projects, her house is being rebuilt by church members. Her children are taken care of while she and her husband are working outside all day. Her children also spend after class hours at church to learn God’s word and worship with other kids. Furthermore, she no longer has issues with her neighbors. Because everything she says and does only reflect the loving and caring character that Jesus has taught her to be.
Today, Elena is actively serving at Hope Church. She also loves to help others who are in need. She says the best reward she can ever receive is seeing others are being blessed through her service.
