Located in Manila, Philippines, the El Shaddai DWXI Prayer Partners Fellowship International is a Catholic Charismatic Movement. It envisions to bring about a revival of the true Christian spirit in the Catholic faith.It aims to raise up a community of faith-filled generous believers of our Lord Jesus Christ as recorded in Acts 2:42-47, which by Divine Guidance and Providence has now miraculously established these communities in many areas worldwide.
Brother Mariano "Mike" Z. Velarde, Servant Leader of DWXI (EL SHADDAI) PPFI, is a geodetic engineer by profession and a real estate developer in business.
Among his real estate developments are the Moonwalk Subdivisions in Paranaque and Las Pinas Cities and Bricktown Subdivision and Multinational Village, located in Paranaque City, near Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Actually, he had neither planned to lead any charismatic community nor dreamed of proclaiming the Good News of Salvation. However, God's thoughts are not man's thoughts, neither His ways are man's ways. By the miracle-working power of God's word, El Shaddai turned Bro. Mike from "a fisher of dollars and pesos, to a fisher of men for Christ Jesus," and the incident led to the birth the DWXI (El Shaddai) PPFI.
