GLENDALE, California – Manny Pacquiao has taken “meet and greet” to an even higher and holier level, as he held a “preach and greet” in Glendale.

The same hands he used to pummel opponents are also used to clap and move along to praise songs.

“Sunday is God’s day, so kailangan mag-share,” Pacquiao explained. “Mag-share ka ng Word of God.”

Pacquiao testified to his fans about how he found his new religious outlook, while some of his friends also testified as to how the Fighting Congressman has influenced them.

“Palagi ako nainom, nag-sugal, nag-babae, kung anu-ano,” said Pacquiao. “Basta palagi ako may gimik. Pero isang gabi, nanaginip ako, at doon sa panaginip ko, narinig ko ‘yung boses ng Panginoon.”

The Los Angeles phase of Pacquiao’s training camp has entered its third week and the “Pacman” said he has been feeling good.

“Everything’s okay naman,” said Pacquiao.

While Pacquiao continues to show love, faith, and compassion outside the ring, inside the ring he promised that the aggressiveness and killer instinct will be on display against Timothy Bradley.
