Personal and Ministry Background
Bobot encountered the Lord when life for him was so desperate and hopeless. Never landing for a job for two years since passing the Board Licensure Exams for Mechanical Engineers was devastating. His spiritual quest begun with this question: “Lord, if you really are existing, give me a job so that I can support my siblings who are still in the university.”
He believes that his work in an oil manufacturing plant in Cagayan de Oro City in 1986 was God-given. A certain Navigator alumna who was their laboratory technician shared her faith to him. In January 1986, he entrusted his life completely to God. From there, life was never the same again as he found himself in a closer walk with God and his increasing love to share his faith to people around him was evident. His outlook in life has changed dramatically. He feels that sharing the Lord Jesus Christ to everyone is of prime importance than earthly gain.
Jean became Christian when she was in college at Ateneo de Cagayan (Xavier University), in 1983 through the Navigators. She is a teacher by profession. They knew each other and became friends in the Navigator fellowship. Consequently, as friends, they became deeply involved both in students and professional ministry. Their active involvement in the ministry helps them to know God deeper. It was on that context that God led them to be committed to each other. Bobot’s resignation from job to join the Navigator National Trainee Program in a Muslim region of Mindanao in 1990 was an indication of his genuine love for the lost.
Jean has been influencing students and officemates through her faith and life of genuine witness to Christ. She has been fruitful to both in her personal and spiritual life. They were married in 1991, after Bobot’s one year stint in the seminary and the Muslim ministry.
After several years of prayer and consideration in 1998, with their two kids, they resigned from their respective jobs. Bobot traded his promising sales career with the top Heavy Equipment Distributor in the country for lost souls. Jean, without hesitation, gave up her teaching career with Montessori School in Cagayan de Oro City. Together they traded their career and together they decided to embark into full-time work with the Navigators. Their first assignment was in Davao City.
After Davao City, Bobot and Jean and their family was requested to come to Manila to be part of the leadership and help open the University belt ministry for the Navigators. They spent around seventeen years in Metro Manila prior to his retirement with the Navigators. Bobot and Jean worked with the Navigators for 22 years. Presently, with their three (3) grown up kids; Noynoy(27), Dayday(26), and Jeanill (20), Bobot and Jean are on their next chapter of their journey as missionaries with KIDS International Ministry, Philippines. At the age of 60 and 54 respectively, they continue pursuing their calling on a more challenging context.
