“For with God, nothing shall be impossible.” – Luke 1:37

The 8th year anniversary of Ionique Mineral Resources Philippines Corporation (IMRPC) and VER1REV Enterprise was successfully held at 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm via Zoom last February 27. It was participated by more than a hundred participants from all over the Philippines and some other countries. This was the first celebration of the two companies held over the new normal.

The event started with a doxology that was facilitated by Ms. Meann Tee, the owner of the Product Distribution Outlet (PDO) in Sta. Mesa. It was followed by a video of the Philippine National Anthem and the introduction of the Emcees, Mr. Manuel Estandarte III and Ms. Lodelaine Bautista, the previous emcees of the 7th year anniversary and both holding the title of being Wellness Executive. After that, the opening remarks of Ms. Angelina Daquis, the general manager of the Naga City branch, was conducted.

Followed by a formal introduction to the first key speaker, Dr. Renato U. Paragas, the CEO of IMRPC and the medical director of VER1REV Enterprise conducted a seminar on Infection. He also entertained questions from the viewers in the open forum. It was an eye-opener to the viewers, especially with the theories discussed by the Waterdok on how infection is prevented and combated by only using water and minerals and how it is vital in the pandemic that we face.

After the open forum, an intermission number was done by the Naga City Branch employees. They had incorporated a role play of a person intoxicated by his bad habits, taking a toll on his life, and making him feel several diseases. The actor then goes to ask the advice of Dr. Paragas and promises to change his lifestyle. Subsequently, a sing and dance number for the WATERDOK was performed.

A formal introduction for the next key speaker followed. Mr. Bruce Anderson, the CEO of Mineral Resources International (MRI), gave an insightful speech on how Dr. Paragas and Dr. Opalla had welcomed him over the years of their anniversary, reminiscing experiences in the Philippines and with every leader of VER1REV Enterprise, and how their partnership continues to strengthen. At the end of his speech, he presented a Plaque of Appreciation to IMRPC and VER1REV Enterprise. In exchange, Dr. Paragas and Dr. Opalla also presented virtually a Plaque of Recognition to Mr. Anderson.

Three testimonials were also live for the event. One was diabetic and hypertensive for 10 years; one had tuberculous pneumonia and the other had stage 4 colon cancer that had spread to the liver and lungs. He also suffered from diabetes, hypertension, gouty arthritis and gallstones. They all expressed their gratitude to Dr. Paragas for successfully managing their diseases.

After that, the third key speaker for the event was introduced. Dr. Vernie C. Opalla, the President of VER1REV Enterprise and the COO of IMRPC, expressed her heartfelt experiences and gratitude to God on her journey with IMRPC and VER1REV.

She was very thankful because it turned out very successful. She also extended her gratitude to her leaders and every one that is in the mission with her and Dr. Paragas.
