Little Teemee wants to be a Minister of Iglesia Ni Cristo

During our early childhood, we were often asked the question “what would you want to be when you grow up?”. Typically, Asian children have a particular profession to choose from, either a doctor, lawyer, police or an engineer. But Timmy is different! He wants to be a minister of Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) “to be able to learn how to read the bible”!

Marcus Teemothy Tadiaman or also known as “Timmy” has surprised everyone in the audience of “Eat Bulaga” by his answers from the hosts’ questions. Eat Bulaga is one of the longest airing noon-time shows in the Philippines.

Question & Answer

In the interview between the young host Ryzza Mae Dizon, co-host Jose Manalo and Timmy, in the segment of the show called “That’s my boy”, which Timmy was a contestant, Ryzza asked Timmy:

Ryzza Mae Dizon: “Anong gusto mo maging paglaki mo?”
Timmy: “Gusto ko po maging ministro.”

The young host was not familiar with the term “ministro”. She asked Jose “kuya Jose, anong Ministro?” Jose then explained that “ministro” or ministers are the brethren or members within ‘The Church of Christ’.

Intrigued by Timmy’s answer, the hosts asked him some follow-up questions:

Jose Manalo: “Bakit gusto mo maging Ministro?”
Timmy: “Gusto kong matuto magbasa ng bibliya.”
Jose Manalo: “Bakit gusto mong matuto magbasa ng bibliya?”
Timmy: “Gusto ko pong tulungan si Ka. Eduardo V. Manalo”

His answers amazed everybody in the audience and later heralded a good uproar among the people in social media.
