GLENDALE, CALIF. – He’s one of the most high profile religious men in the Philippines…and this past week…

Entrepreneur, best-selling author, ministry founder, and lay preacher Brother Bo Sanchez brought his message of prosperity and blessings to Southern California, his largest ministry outside the Philippines.

“Just wonderful, wonderful people who are supporters of the ministry and a ministry cannot do what God wants it to do without friends and family. That’s what I love about coming here,” said Brother Bo.

His following says the so-called “Preacher in Blue Jeans’” messages that involve life issues such as money, relationships, and spirituality strikes a chord with them.

Aside from his weekly televised sermons on the ABS-CBN News Channel he’s currently working on his latest book How to Deal with Difficult People.

“God says, no, I’m giving you wisdom. A wisdom to work on your finances, work on your health work on your family so that’s what I’ve been trying to do,” said Brother Bo.

“Definitely, it reminds me that I can definitely look past my doors and open them and see what I can do to help myself and help other people around me,” said Moses Brimon.

“Very good. Very enlightening,” said Stella Valenzuela.

With His positive outlook, Brother Bo says despite recent challenges the world is facing, for as long as there is faith, people can overcome any situation.

“So many uncertain things are happening: calamity, war, imminent war. What are we going to do? God is the only sure thing. He’s the rock. Let all things change around us. If God will not change, we’re ok,” said Brother Bo.

The Charismatic Catholic adds that it’s been a good year for Catholics especially for Filipinos.

As he’s visited the U.S., Pope John Paul II, who has a strong following among Filipinos, was canonized a saint.

While Brother Bo only comes to the U.S. about once a year, his ministry continues to grow, holding weekly prayer meetings known as feasts throughout the U.S.
