I was born on March 1982 into a Christian family. My parents, Peter & Nenita Denisi, who are also BIMI missionaries in the Philippines, raised me and my brother, and my sisters in a God-fearing home. It was not until I was age fifteen, that I realized of my need for salvation. I did remember when I was a young child praying a prayer, but it was not until age fifteen that I truly put my trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. That day was October 24, 1997, and I have not been the same since.
At the age of 18, while at a youth retreat, I saw many of the boys in my youth group, make decisions to preach, and go to Bible school. In my heart I already made that decision, but it was not known publicly. It was there that my youth pastor urged to make it public, and I thank him for it. I especially thank the Lord that I got to be in a good youth group, at a growing independent Baptist church. This is where I made my decision go to Bible school at Pensacola Christian College.
From 2000-2004, I was an undergrad student there at Pensacola. Weekly, I attended the Missions Prayer Band for the college students. We would have missionaries come, share testimonies, and then we would pray for them. My heart for God was tender then, just as it is now. Back then it seemed that whatever the country the missionary was from, that was the country that I wanted to go! It was not until the summer of 2004 that I went back to the Philippines to help in the ministry here. I would preach and share the gospel to the Filipinos, and then I realized, that many of them were hearing the Gospel for the first time in their lives! What a privilege to be the preacher to preach the Gospel to these precious souls. God spoke to me and let me know that this is what He wants me to do for the rest of my life. It was then that I received a definite call to be a missionary in the Philippines.
I returned to Pensacola, and finished my Seminary, earning an M.A. in Bible Exposition. But my heart was still in the Philippines. Consequentially, the day after graduation in 2006, I went back to the Philippines, and have been faithfully ministering here ever since. I have been assisting my father, and have gained practical training in church planting in the Philippines. God has allowed my experience of being the assistant pastor for 3½ years in the Philippines, as well as my 3 years of pastoral internship at Smyrna Baptist Church, and Fil-Am Baptist Church in Pensacola, FL, to prepare me for the great harvest field of the Philippines. I do have a vision to reach the lost by planting churches, starting Bible schools, and training the nationals to do the same.
