I have been to Davao a couple of times and I want to say that I have seen all that I want to see but I was proven wrong
Last April 25, in time with the celebration of International Children’s Day which was held at the KOJC Compound; I visited Davao again for the 3rd time.
I was not expecting anything much but just go around to the places which I have been before or stay and just relax at the pool of the hotel after the event at the KOJC.
It was during our lunch break that it was announce that we would be visiting the Garden of Eden and the Glory Mountain the next day.
As early as 9 am, we were fetch at Apoview Hotel and headed first at the Garden of Eden Restored
Garden of Eden was once a rough landscape up in the highlands, the Prayer Mountain has been transformed into an 8-hectare garden of plants, waterways and flowers. Amazing landscape and restoration is spearheaded by Pastor Quiboloy, at the same time that he strives to make the mountain community benefit from surrounding developments. This was where he grew up, where he was called and chosen, and finally anointed. Tamayong is said to have an ambience best suited for spiritual retreats and recreations. Here the Pastor intercedes for prayer requests sent by members, televiewers and covenant partners from all over the world. Here, the President of the Philippines and other notable personalities have come up to visit him and pay respects.
Upon entering the area, you will be ushered to a café where in a video will be played regarding the rules and regulations that should be followed when you are inside the Garden of Eden.
Visiting the Garden of Eden is by appointment only.
