Jinky Pacquiao: busy supporting husband

LOS ANGELES - Jinky Pacquiao used to spend her time shopping around the US as her husband, eight division world boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, prepares for a fight. But since Manny has been converted into a born-again Christian, Jinky has joined him in Bible studies and preaching ministries. So this time, instead of shopping, Jinky is organizing Bible studies with her family and Team Pacquiao.
Jinky is in-charge of conducting short sessions of studying God?s Word and praying not only for the People?e Champ, but for all team members and their families back home.
?I understand how hard it is to be far from your loved ones. And prayer is the only support we can give each other,? says Jinky who deeply believes in the power of prayer.
?I know that the prayers of millions of Filipinos helped my husband become victorious not only in his boxing fights but also in overcoming temptation and vices,? adds the beautiful Pac-wife who was reported to have been the happiest with Manny?s transformation.
The Pambansang Kamao will face Timothy Bradley for the third time on April 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The Filipino sports icon will retire from boxing after this fight. Back in the Philippines, he is running for a Senate seat after his term as a Congressman.
Bradley beat Pacquiao in June 2012 with a controversial split decision, then Pacquiao won in 2014 in a one-sided unanimous decision over Bradley. This fight is Pacquiao?s return to the ring after losing in the highly publicized match against Floyd Mayweather and recovering from the shoulder surgery he had a few days after. #
