A Legend Rising
The book presents the beautiful, fairy-tale like story of Irene Lumbrera whose faith in her God is as tall as the mountain of highest peak, Everest; as strong as the hardest cores of nanospheres and diamonds, who has become a self-made millionaire at age 26 when the Philippines is just recovering from the tolls of war and Great Depression; comes to the United States to be amazed with more good fortune, returns home after thirty years just to become homeless again at 88 when she found out that her home and properties are no longer hers, and rising back at 89 when the Philippine Community Center Services for Aging adopted her and placed her on its Home Living Program hereby regaining her basic human rights of home and shelter, dreaming of a happy ending for herself and her community , willing to work as hard to build a dream and complete a mission, stronger in her faith as ever, the rock of all faith and churches.
This is just the beginning of a great story to be told on A Legend Rising and destiny-inspired quest of a mission whispered by God to an ear of a helpless and sick nonagenarian, to be equipped with a company of wise men, an orchestra to be led by Irene Lumbrera herself, a deaconess, an apostle to share God’s love and blessing chosen by God, the ultimate Rainmaker and claim His Glory and Power that "With God, there is nothing impossible." Her faith has earned her heaven on earth never losing hope that this Will be done.
I am honored to become a part of this community to meet leaders of this Church of Christ. Together we will celebrate a Leader in her own rights, a teacher of life and a legend rising!
