About Us



EL SHADDAI is one of the covenant names through which God the Father, creator of heaven and earth revealed Himself to Israel. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
In Hebrew, EL SHADDAI means “The God who is more than enough.” “The Most Sufficient One.” “The Breasted One.” Jerusalem Bible translated EL SHADDAI as the “Almighty God” (Genesis 17:1;35:11).
EL SHADDAI is a combination of two Hebrew words: “EL” means God,and “SHADDAI” means Almighty.

Thus EL SHADDAI is translated as “God Almighty” (Genesis 17:1 and Genesis 35:11). He is the Source and Provider of all our needs, and with Him, all things are possible.

Our Mission

Our mission is to give witness and to share the healing, saving, and transforming power of the Living Word of God in our Catholic Christian faith, as it did happen and continue to happen in our lives, from the day we heard, believe, and responded, to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, giving life to what is written that: “man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).

Our Vision

Our vision is to bring about a revival of the true Christian spirit inside our Catholic faith, particularly among DWXI (EL SHADDAI) PRAYER PARTNERS FOUNDATION INTL members, and serve as an institution in raising up a community of true Christian believers, as described in Acts 2:42-47, “they devoted themselves to apostle’s teaching and to fellowship, through the breaking of bread and to prayer”.

Our Identity

A Brief History

Brother Mariano “Mike” Z. Velarde, Servant Leader of DWXI (EL SHADDAI) PPFI, is a geodetic engineer by profession and a real estate developer in business. Among his real estate developments are the Moonwalk Subdivisions in Paranaque and Las Pinas Cities and Bricktown Subdivision and Multinational Village,.located in Paranaque City, near Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Actually, he had neither planned to lead any charismatic community nor dreamed of proclaiming the Good News of Salvation. However, God’s thoughts are not man’s thoughts, neither His ways are man’s ways. By the miracle-working power of God’s word, EL SHADDAI turned Bro. Mike from “a fisher of dollars and pesos, to a fisher of men for Christ Jesus,” and the incident led to the birth the EL SHADDAI DWXI PPFI.
