No Goodbyes, Just 'till we meet again'


This is Kuya Lyndon. For the past few days, I was feeling sad because of him. Last week, we learned that he had a stroke while driving on his way home. He was fighting for his life for a few days until around 6 PM last Sunday when he went to his eternal home to be with the Lord.


The moment we learned about his death, Melisa and I couldn't help but cry (good thing I was with her). It was just saddening, I get teary-eyed every time I think of it. Even now. :( Deep in my heart, I knew it was coming since we learned that 90% of his brain was damaged and he had an internal hemorrhage. However, part of me was still hoping and praying for a miracle. Not that I'm questioning God's will because, at the end of the day, He alone knows what is best for all of us. But as someone living in the flesh, I just can't hide the pain, just like everybody else who loves him dearly. Dane called the same night that he died and we also cried together.

Death is surely like a thief in the night - you won't know when it's coming. 


If I am not mistaken, Kuya Lyndon was a fellow laborer in the church (Golden Shower Grace Gospel Church of Christ) for about three years. He was the director for our musical play David and Goliath. He was also the director of ZPPAi-Davao's Joseph the Dreamer, Jonah and the Big Fish, The Savior's Quest, and more. He is a person with a noble heart. His love for the Lord's work is undeniable. His passion to help was apparent, his cheerfulness was infectious. Who would want to lose someone as nice as Kuya Lyndon, anyway?

Everything happened so fast that we didn't even have time for things to sink in. Kuya Lyndon is in heaven now. He is in a place where there's no more pain and sorrow. A place of bliss and glory - in the heavenly realms. He is now with the Creator and is rejoicing together with other believers.

I am favored to be able to know him and be friends with him even for a short while. We will be sad, we will cry, we will miss him, but it will not end there. It'll end with a HOPE. A hope that one sweet day, there will be a grand reunion with the fellow believers in the Lord. And for that, I WILL REJOICE.

Here's a video about Zaphenath Paneah Performing Arts, Inc (ZPPAi)

I know you are jovial up there now, Kuya Lyndon. No goodbyes, just "till we see you again". 

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will be the first to rise. After that, we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord." 
(1 Thessalonians 4:16) 

"For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain."
(Philippines 1:21)

  1. We will never realize the importance of one person until he left us. I always believe that. And sadly even if we know that, we seem to take him still for granted. And now we regret the missed chances.

    But in your case, good thing you were able to spend moments with him. That would bring a smile on your face that somehow, you've got to spend some of your time with a person worth all that time.

  2. It's true we had wonderful memories. All the way i wished i've seen him before he died still there's no regrets. We'll see each other again someday.
