Our little one turns 1

21 Mar

We praise God we were able to pull off a party as our Little One (LO) turned one. I don’t have skills to host a party so organizing one was by the grace of God. We also praise God because we were able to celebrate our daughter’s first birthday and dedication in a special way.

Pastors and wives retreat: David in the wilderness

21 Jan

We left the house at 6 AM because the car we used was under the coding scheme on Monday, the first day of the retreat, so we need to be out of the streets of Metro Manila by 7 AM. The retreat doesn’t start until noon so we had breakfast and hanged out first before going to CCT. It was so cold! It’s Baby Carissa’s 4th time to be in Tagaytay but our first time to take a picture with Taal Lake in the background.

It’s our nth time to attend the GCF satellite-wide pastors and wives retreat but it was our first time with a baby. We had Pastor Carlos Peña as our speaker for the second time around (the first time was in 2014) and at the same venue in CCT Tagaytay. Continue reading

Ministry from the inside-out

29 Jan

The past three days was not only a welcome retreat but a much-needed Sabbath (which was, very aptly, the first session during the retreat). I am grateful for the break from the daily grind, for God’s Word, for the fellowship, the fun, for the open space and nature, and, yes, for the very cold weather in Tagaytay.

Ptr. Caloy Pena came all the way from Singapore to encourage us with the Word of God.

The famous “Serenity Prayer” which we all know as a single prose is actually a modification and just a part of an untitled prayer authored by Reinhold Niebuhr. Continue reading

2012 Reflections

1 Jan

As I read status updates of my friends on Facebook about the New Year and how God has blessed them the past year, I smile and also whisper a prayer of praise and thanks to God for seeing me through 2012. Unlike the kind of blessing which most people posted about, which could be categorized as either “tangible” or “positive”, mine was not exactly what I wished for or something that not many people eagerly pray about or would come to realize as a blessing.

GCF Crossover Turning Point: Thanksgiving

24 Nov

GCF Crossover, the Young Adults Ministry of our local church, Greenhills Christian Fellowship, relaunched its Turning Point event last Friday, November 23, 2012. Turning Point is a regular meeting of young adults where they find Christ in life, work, and relationships. It is a fellowship where you’ll find great company, music, and food!

For the event, we were treated to a night of live jazz music, pizza (and more), and fellowship with long lost and newly-met friends. I just learned that most of the new faces I saw were people that have been ministered by The Shed. It’s good to know that we are reaching out to our immediate community in Ortigas Center to share to them the Gospel. Continue reading
