Apple Novilla

: Marifol (Apple) Novilla
Ministry: Head Nurse
Location: All Communities

My name is Apple Giron-Novilla, Im married to a good man and had my new surname last June 2 , 2015. Im residing now in Mandaluyong but originally from Calapan City Oriental Mindoro-an island at the south of main island in Luzon.  I have 2 brothers. My father preferred to stay in Calapan.  My mother went home to heaven in 2009. She was a former livelihood coordinator in Calapan and was my first mentor in faith. We came from a non-Christian family,  We were just invited  by a missionary family sometimes in church or in a Sunday school and we're also invited to join a bible study for yoummer Camps. I had my personal encounter with Him and accepted Him as my  Lord and Savior in one of that Summer youth Camp, Then Bukang Liwayway came and did my spiritual ff-up. They helped me to grow in Him and equipped me to lead others to Jesus. I had a very good training and was nurtured and opened my heart for mission.  I was given the privilege to be a scholar and youth coordinator. I graduated in 2008 and by God's grace I was able to pass the licensure exam for nurses same year.


  My heart has always been connected with BL - even if I had my secular work I'm still with BL and doing ministry at church. Two BL staff approached me saying that they need a nurse in BL, I resigned in my Hospital work in February 2012 and started to work

 as an official staff of BL in March that year. Im so blessed and grateful to God since the day that I was introduced to BL and up to now that Im included into God's magnificent work through this foundation. My vision is to see people being healed physically and at the same time spiritually, and be freed in all sort of pain from this world. Oh! what joy in my heart to have a TB-Free  Community and attain a Pain Free World.


Pray that I would always allow God and always take the privilege to be His hands and feet for His glory. Pray that we would be able to minister in all patients we meet and wisdom as we do health seminars in all BL communities. Pray for provision for TB medicines  and support for patients who are in need of medical assistance. I pray for blessings for those who partner with us in the Health Program and for those who come to do Medical-Dental Mission with us.
  May our hearts be led by His love and mercy us we serve Him.

Greetings on this day of Labor Day! My own labor day has ended last April 3, 2017 at 11:43 in the evening and so grateful to God that finally we met our dearest baby girl- Nami Psalm (a reminder of God’s love in Psalm 93:4 ). Thank you so much for your prayers and praise God that she turned in the desired position at the right time. Praise God for a safe and normal delivery after premature rupture of membrane and 16 hours of labor. Indeed! God answer prayers and He is so caring to bless me with a very supportive husband, family and friends...Continue to read Apple's latest prayer letter.

"Everything on Earth has its own Time and its own Season." Ecclesiastes 3:1. There is a time for throwing stones and gathering stones, Embracing and Parting.
