Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao reminded everyone that “God is in control” over the COVID-19 issue that the world is facing.
Manny Pacquiao is a professional boxing champion. He is alo a Philippine senator. Moreover, he is known for his bold faith.
As a Philippine senator, he is among the people fighting the coronavirus on the frontlines. The nation has now over 1,500 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 and it is still rapidly increasing every day.
Well-known for its tropical weather that attracts many tourists, the Philippines has been placed on lockdown. Beach resorts are deserted and traffic-jammed streets are now empty.
The problem is now a huge concern for the citizens and the government is implementing measures to help stop the spread of the virus. On behalf of the government, Senator Manny addressed the nation on a video expressing his gratitude to everyone.
He first thanked the founder of the Alibaba Group, Jack Ma, for extending help to the nation by giving over 57,000 COVID-19 test kits and over 500,000 face masks.
“I thank God for giving me a friend, Jack Ma, that He used as an instrument to bless the Philippines.”
The boxing champion then thanked his fellow Filipinos for cooperating with the measurements that the government is implementing.
“To all my fellow Filipinos, thank you for your trust in us, the government. And most importantly, thank you for cooperating.”
Lastly, he reminded everyone of God’s promise and that God is still in control despite this seemingly overwhelming situation.
“Let us just trust God who guides us in every way. The Bible says, ‘in this world, you will have trouble but take heart I have overcome the world.’ We are not fighting against flesh but against the darkness. God is in control.”
