Manny Pacquiao reveals why he transferred his kids to General Santos City


090515-mannypacquiao_push.jpgManny Pacquiao decided to transfer his children from an international school in Manila to a private school in General Santos City. In an interview with StarStudio magazine’s September issue, Manny explained why they decided to send their kids back to the province. “Gusto naming na ma-experience nila at makasama nila ‘yung mga mahihirap na mga bata, ‘yung hirap din ng buhay na dinaanan namin. Gusto naming balikan ‘yung mga tao na nangangailangan ng tulong at gusto naming tumulong sa kanila kasi nanggaling kami sa ganoong buhay,” he said.

Manny has decided to lead a simpler and a God-centered family life. He relayed that this decision began when he dreamt about God one day. “Nag dream ako na narinig ko ang boses ng Panginoon. Para akong nalusaw na yelo na nilagay sa mainit na tubig. Napakalaki ng boses ng Panginoon. And I was crying and nakita ko ‘yung paradise kung nasaan ako, napakaganda.”

He further shared, “Nasa ilalim ako ng gubat, hindi ko alam kung saan ‘yun pero napakaganda talaga. I was crying, kneeling on the ground and then sabi ng Panginoon ‘Anak bakit ka lumayo sa Akin?’ So nong narining ko ‘yung boses na ‘yun para akong nalusaw. Simula noon hindi ko na malimutan. Palagi ko iniisip na ang Panginoon ay palaging nandiyan.”

With the changes in his life, Manny said that he came to realize what the most important thing in life is. “’Yung mga bagay na tinatanggap natin, ang pangalan na tinatanggap natin o karangalang naibigay ko sa bansa, ‘yan ay kumbaga temporary lang ‘yan. Pag nawala na tayo dito sa mundo, hindi natin madadala ‘yan. Ang importante talaga, ang Panginoon at hindi ‘yung mga bagay na ‘yan. Everything like pera at mga bagay dito sa mundo, hindi natin madadala ‘yan sa kabilang buhay. Ang Panginoon, tayo as individuals, ‘yun ang importante eh, ‘yung may relasyon ka sa Panginoon,” he stated.
