Juanita Mariano is a retired seamstress, and is a 77-year old disciple in the Makati Region of the Manila church. She was converted in 2018 after studying the Bible off and on for more than 28 years. Three of her children are faithful disciples, and are also married to disciples. Her late husband, who passed away a few years ago, died as a faithful disciple.
She also has three grandchildren who are baptized disciples. Coming from a staunch Roman Catholic background, Juanita has helped many senior citizens understand the Bible and God’s plan in its entirety.
Last Sunday, May 17, Juanita was found to be in septic shock and incoherent. She was sent to a local Level 1 hospital with no COVID-19 cases, but later the same day she had to be moved to a bigger hospital due to the complications of her sepsis and the related impact on her brain, heart and lungs. She is currently in the ICU and as of today, May 21, she is relatively stable and is scheduled to undergo a surgery to remove some urethral stones and to drain her infection.
