#TeamPaRoll: Rollyvic and Pamela’s wedding

24 Feb

Nothing is more beautiful than a wedding that is focused on God.

We are grateful for being invited to witness Rollyvic and Pam’s ‘I dos’.

We had the honor and privilege of attending the wedding of Rollyvic and Pam last February 4. It was a garden wedding held at Lirabelle Nature Living (a farm of the bride’s family) in Batangas and officiated by no less than the groom’s father, Pastor Love Tira.

The lovely bride who said her groom always makes her feel beautiful.

The weather was cold but the hearts of the couple’s families were very warm as they welcomed the addition of a new family member into their respective families. I didn’t know that the Tira father and son were emotional persons. Rollyvic cried upon seeing her bride and there was a part when Pastor Love tried to control his tears as he gave his exhortation and message to the couple. The couple were obviously giddy and overjoyed they were getting married. Pastor Love capped the ceremony by singing ‘Our Father’ after which he requested all pastors present to pray for the newly weds.

There was a very slight delay during the vows as they looked for who was holding the rings :).

I don’t know the couple very well. But Rollyvic is Eugene’s fellow pastor who is currently the resident pastor in Greenhills Christian Fellowship (GCF) Makati. He is the son of Pastor Love Tira who is a well-known pastor within the Baptist community (and is currently assigned in GCF Metro Baguio). Pam, on the other hand, is a preschool teacher. I had previously met her a few times in the past in events/activities of the Crossover Ministry of GCF Ortigas Center when she attended a few times when said ministry was still active then. But I’m not sure if she knows or remembers me. Did I mention she surprised her groom with a song during their first dance? (She sang Yeng Constantino’s ‘Ikaw’).

I couldn’t get any nearer to take a closer shot of the couple’s first kiss.

What I like most and which, for me, gave the highlight of the wedding was when they gave (through a series of videos) their personal testimonies of their relationship with Christ, how they met, and how they grew more in Christ as they serve God together. Throughout the wedding, they honored and acknowledged Christ.

The newly weds before the recessional.

As I am writing this almost three weeks after the wedding, I couldn’t remember other details anymore. Sorry.

Groufie with the couple. Sorry for the very poor shot.

Mabuhay ang bagong kasal!

GCF Crossover Turning Point: Thanksgiving

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
