Personal and Ministry Background
Bobot encountered the Lord when life for him was so desperate and hopeless. Neverlanding 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 Nav 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. 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 FOCUS 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.
Both of them enjoy working full-time. Sharing the gospel to both mainstream Catholics and FOCUS students in Davao was very exciting to them. Their ultimate desire is to join with other missionaries in bringing and sharing the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the FOCUS community in the 10/40 window and beyond.
Recently, with the support of his wife Jean, Bobot is taking an active significant role being a member of the Philippine Navigators National Leadership Team (PNNLT). Though busy in the ministry, Bobot and Jean did not lose sight of the 10/40 windows. Aside from his administrative and leadership responsibility, he visits a FOCUS people populated area in Metro Manila to share the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
