My home is in heaven. I’m just passing through this world.”

Upon entering Garin Farm, a long green vegetable tunnel will be your first sight. On the sides are different farm animals they take care of.

After a long tunnel of green vegetables, you can see a pond at the center of Garin Farm, wherein it offers activity such as zip line.

There are also doves’ cage near the pond, so when all them are flying, it was really fun to watch.

Gate to Garin Farm Pilgrimage

As you climb take time to stop and meditate on different scenes of  Christ’s life. Pray and feel God’s holy presence.

Reaching the top was not that easy but a very satisfying moment for us, as we finally reached the inspiring Divine Mercy Cross and seeing  the big image of the Divine Mercy was a great relief.

One of the glimpse, is when you enter a very dark room. It recalls our challenges, dark times in life, and the moments when we don’t know where’s the light anymore.

Praise God! As the light appears and the tunnel takes you toward the light and into heaven. HEAVEN ON EARTH! The place is so bright that we could hardly open our eyes. I had to shield my eyes from it until my eyes adjusted to the brightness. The light filled me with rapture of love, peace and joy, it was so intense and so beautiful.

There are angels blowing their trumpets who stand beyond the gate of heaven as you can see the Throne of Light and Glory. The heaven is so beautiful, my heart felt very peaceful.
