Dominic Ochoa is one of the many Kapamilyas who are hopeful for the return of ABS-CBN to free TV programming.
Dominic, who stars in ABS-CBN’s new teleserye ‘Huwag Kang Mangamba,’ said that he is now slowly seeing the end of the tunnel for his home network. He admitted that he can now see many of those who lost their jobs due to retrenchment finally moving forward in life.
‘Nawalan tayo ng istasyon, kinuha sa atin. Maraming nawalan ng trabaho pero dasal lang. And I’m very thankful that I’m seeing na yung mga IG nila, ‘yung mga post nila, every morning I see mga prayers. Unti-unti tayong naghi-heal, unti-unti tayong dinadala,” Dominic shared.
He also disclosed how he feels their show will help viewers to reflect and pray amid these challenging times.
“‘Yan yung rason kung bakit tayo nagkaroon ng show na ‘to, itong ‘Huwag Kang Mangamba. Binabalik’ natin at pinapaalala natin sa ating mga manunuod, not just to entertain but to remind them maybe we should stop and sit down and pray,” he said.
Dominic hopes his latest project would touch and inspire the younger generation to seek the Lord. He feels glad that somehow he is being used as an instrument to remind people to strengthen their faith.
“Marami kasing pangyayari. Maraming bagay ang nangyari sa atin. Iba iba ang nangyari sa atin, iba iba ang sitwasyon natin, maaaring mababaw, maaaring malalim,” Dominic remarked.
“I don’t want to sound preachy but I guess this is my role in life. We’re here to entertain people but we’re here also para ilapit din, we’re being used by the Lord also,” he explained.
