In Heaven now proclaimed."

The family says goodbye

"Lolo, diba you are my boyfriend. I love you, lolo and I miss you. I will take care of my baby brother Zion. I will be obedient." -Psalm

"Papa, thank you for being my papa. I love you very much and I will miss you." -Beth

"I will keep the kids intact"

"And I know up in heaven, you're not supposed to cry
but I was almost sure, there were tears in your eyes
as Jesus took your hand and you stood before the Lord
He said, 'my chid, look around you for great is your reward'
Thank you for giving to the Lord..."

"We will serve the Lord even when trials come
for none can separate us from the love of God
We are more than conquerors, no one can defeat
we are a chosen generation, we are the sons of God"

As for me and my house we will serve the Lord...

"Only one life will soon be past,
only what's done for Christ will last"

Our family would like to thank
everybody who visited us in the hospital
everybody who came to the wake and to the burial,
everybody who stayed and celebrated,
everybody who gave and shared support,
everybody who fervently prayed for our family
especially our friends and family around the world
thank you for being part of 58 years of God's faithfulness to papa!

It had been a wonderful journey.
Unto the Lord be glory!

Thank you so much, Loree and family, for publishing these special memories of my friend, Doming's, final mortal moments before he was given his glorious, immortal new body. I laughed and cried at once looking at the pictures, wishing we could have been with you, and so very glad that we could share those special days with you in Korea and Manila last September-October. May our Lord continue to wrap his arms around you and comfort you with His abiding and loving Presence. Love, David & Fran

Thank you for sharing. There is so much that we don't understand but being in God's family, we walk together and share. We truly serve an awesome and faithful and so very caring Lord. He is in the Lord's keeping. in Jesus, Sue Harman

Dear family,
What a great memorial of Kuya Doming. Dan and I would have wanted to be with you but of course we couldn't. However, this blog brought us closer to you all, and gave us an opportunity to rejoice in his life. We will miss him. All these memories and more will comfort during times of loss.

Dear Loree and family. I have looked through all the pictures and wish I could have been there with you. It is hard to believe that it was 36 years ago that I lived in Balangao. I look forward to eternity when I can be together with the brothers and sisters there. May God bless you and the family in these days ahead, and may brother Doming's testimony continue on. Love in Jesus, Marjorie Cook

It was a privilege knowing and personally meeting the Lucasi family (not just Violet) especially Tita Lorrie and Ptr. Doming. His life is what Max Lucado's book "It's Not ABout Me" is all about. He was a humble, silent moon reflecting the glory of the Son. Everything you went through indeed made God famous! Looking forward to know you and your ministry more. Blessings, Jean Galang (Capitol City Baptist Church) :]

Dear Loree and Family,

How are you and your family? Looking at the pictures, you and
your children are doing well inspite of Manong Doming's passing.
Before I proceed, my deepest
hearfelt sympathy to you and your
family. I heared of Manong
Doming's passing from my relatives.
It's a blessing one of my niece forwarded your blog to me. I looked at the pictures, and one
thing for sure, Manong Doming, you and your family are a Blessing to a lot of people. May God continue to give you strength and courage to spread HIS word. I really do admire you and your family, you are involve in many activities all for the love of God.

Manang Loree, your children are the beautiful proof that you and
Manong Doming are amazing parents.
Reading Violet's letter to her Dad made me cry. Manong Doming was lucky to have such a wonderful daughter and Violet was blessed with a great Dad.

I will continue to read your blog to keep abreast of your activities and family. Loree, I do miss you.

Lori and family. If you go to you can read the tribute I wrote about Doming. I don't know if you had seen it or not. It is titled, "A Life Well Lived"

I never met Doming, only read about him in Joanne Shetler's book and saw him in the Word Came with Power video but in those brief glimpses he was and is an inspiration.

Hello, I'm in the middle of reading "And the Word Came with Power" to my children for school. I warned them that I may cry through the book. God has been calling us to the Philippines for the past nearly 5 years. We're waiting on Him to open the right doors for our family.

Thank you for sharing your story!! It's all for the Glory of God! Blessings, Carol Hobbs

Dear Friends,
Thank you for sharing your lives with us! My heart goes out to you all in your loss of Doming, even though of course we rejoice for him being with Jesus!
I read "And the Word Came with Power" to our 3 (now 4) boys in 1999, and at that time our 7-year-old (oldest) boy, Evan, decided he wanted to be a Bible translator with Wycliffe like Joanne Shetler. He loved reading about Doming's life and conversion and work for the Lord. Evan is now at the University of Oklahoma studying Linguistics! He still wants to be a Bible translator and work with Wycliffe. =) God is good and faithful. Thank you again for your wonderful testimonies of His presence, His care, His big family, and His power. "The Lord is upright. He is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in Him." Ps. 92:15
In Him,
Susan P. Orlando, FL
