Inpirational and Heartwarming Story
8 October 2015 | by pretty_chryssSee all my reviews

#FelixManalo is one of the few movies which gives inspiration to all.

Inspiration for us to hold on to our faith in God.

Inspiration to do what is righteous no matter how big or small the hindrances are.

Being alone against the whole world doesn't mean they are right and you are wrong.

Inspiration to pursue your goal.

You may fail once or many times in your life but that does not mean you will fail forever.

Eyeopener to those people who believe that there is no God.

Heartwarming because you will be able to feel the sincerity and the truthfulness of the story.

INC and Non-INC are encourage to watch. And please open your hearts while watching the movie.

You may watch the movie together with your family and friends.
