LOOK: Jerry Treñas sneaks a quick prayer outside church gates


Jerry Treñas is perpetually seeking guidance from the Almighty as he leads Iloilo City through the pandemic.

The mayor wanted to sneak in a quick prayer at a local church but found it was closed for the night. He made do by kneeling by the church gate, uttering a silent prayer and offering thanks for the day that has passed.

“When times get hard, Ilonggos rest and pray. Our faith is stronger than our fear, and it gives us the courage to overcome any obstacles. When in distress, we became powerful through His promise,” the politiko said.

“This coming crisis, let us remain hopeful that He will protect us from its dangers. He listens, and He protects. Believe in what you pray for,” he added.
