About Felix Dexel
As someone born in Hamburg you can rightfully call me a „Hamburger“. I lived there till I finished my school and began to study Theology in University at age 22.
My family and I were not religious or members of a church. Around age 18 I joined the Gospel Choir „Gospel Train“ which was lead by my friend Pit Mumssen. Most of us did not believe what we were singing – we just loved this style of music.
During my studies in Basel, Switzerland I began to realize that God had a plan for my life. Step by step my focus was directed toward Asia. Once I read an article about the assassination of Ninoy Aquino on Aug. 21, 1983, in Time Magazin I knew that my destiny would have to do with this amazing country.
From that day on I read constantly about the Philippines. In the mid of 1985, I realized it was time for my next step. So I told my friends that I was planning to go to the Philippines in 1986 to further explore and verify my calling. Because I realized how important it would be to be in harmony with my future wife about the direction of our lives, I asked my friends to pray that I would meet my wife before the end of the year. I reckoned that this would allow enough time to marry before my trip to Asia.
