Recresio and Hermie Barbaso


Recresio (Eric) was born in 1945 and lost his wife of thirty-seven years, Modesta, in 2005. They have 2 children, Joseph and Jesse. He is now married to Hermie, a dear friend of the family for many years.


Accepting Christ as his Savior in 1958 under the Missionary Alliance Ministry in Zamboanga City, Mindanao, Philippines, Recresio committed his life to full time service. When he graduated in 1961, however, he forgot his promise and pursued a Bachelor of Arts degree. Some time later, one of his children died from an unknown ailment and this turned the course of his life, now fully surrendered to the work of the Lord.
