CBN Asia at 25 – The 700 Club Asia Host, Lara Quigaman-Alcaraz’s Story

Did you ever feel unqualified to be used by God?

The 700 Club Asia co-host Lara Quigaman Alcaraz felt the same way. When the former Miss International 2005 was offered to host for The 700 Club Asia, she was in disbelief.

“Honestly, when I was first approached to co-host The 700 Club Asia, I was a bit hesitant, I felt unprepared and underqualified to co-host,” she confessed.

Lara recalled being consumed with self-doubt that almost caused her to shrink back. Even so, her heart to serve God turned out to be her driving force to step out and say yes to His calling.

“One of my prayers is for God to give me opportunities to serve Him and to be used by Him and be a blessing to others, and so Praise God, [my] love for Him and the desire to serve Him won over fear and hesitation,” she said.

The former beauty queen and host also harked back to how CBN Asia helped her grow closer to Jesus even as a kid.

“I was a Superbook viewer and now my children are too! I know that seeds were planted in my heart even as a young child as I watched episodes of Superbook,” she expressed with gladness.

In awe of God’s move in her life, Lara shared how God never fails to speak to her through His Word every time she hosts one of the episodes.

She remembered this one particular episode about an OFW that left a mark in her heart, “The story that was shown shares how nothing is impossible with God and he hears our prayers and I just couldn’t host and just cried and cried because I was overwhelmed with that truth.”

“It was just amazing how we think we minister to the viewers, when we are also being ministered to by the Holy Spirit as we serve,” Lara added.
