“Naniniwala po kami na ang isang bagay na nagpaginhawa sa kalooban ng isang kapwa-tao, yun po ay nakapagpapasaya sa Dios. Pagka po ang isang tao ay naaawa sa isang mahirap o tumutulong sa isang mahirap, is tantamount na parang napapautang natin ang Dios. Yun ang sinasabi sa aklat ng Kawikaan, ang naaawa sa dukha, nagpapautang sa Panginoon. Kaya parang naiisip ko, na yung mga naglalaro – mga senador, mga taong kilala sa lipunan, siguro bawat dribol nun, pag nanalo siya, dinonate yung kanyang napanalunan sa mga nangangailangan, parang nagpautang na siya sa Dios. At pagka ang Dios ang nagkautang, nagbabayad Siya. Kung magbayad ang Dios, maka- pupong mahigit kaysa sa ating ginawa. Yun po ang sinasabi sa kasulatan. “ — Bro. Eli Soriano

“We believe that a chance to ease the pain of our fellowmen pleases God. To feel some pity or the urge to help the helpless, to the needy is tantamount to lending to God. In the book of Proverbs, it says, he who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord.In my thoughts, those senators, those well-known in the society … in every dribble, in every win, they would donate it to the needy, it is like lending to the Lord. And if God pays, he pays more than what you have given, more than what you have done for Him. That is written in the scriptures.”  — Bro. Eli Soriano

The opening of the UNTV Cup Season 4 is one of the highlights of the 11TH anniversary of UNTV themed UNTV Live Bigger, a two-day celebration.

“Sa AFP, army po siya and namatay po siya sa service noong 7 years old po ako. So tatlo po kaming magkakapatid and devastated po yung family namin noon. Di ko po ma- imagine na may ganito po palang ganitong program yung para sa mga anak ng sundalo. And luckily po, sa tulong po ng UNTV Cup, mas napagpapatuloy po yung pag-aaral ng mga anak ng mga sundalo po. Para po kay Kuya Daniel po, maraming maraming maraming salamat po kasi sobrang laking tulong po nito kasi yung AFPEBSO po mas marami pa po siyang mapag-aaral na mga anak ng sundalo pong kagaya ko.”
