Christmas Carnivals 2008
This team has been soo much a blessing to Youth Mobilization Team. They’ve been a help to our ministries since 2004. They finance our “Children Christmas Carnivals” and not only that, they themselves come here to the Philippines straight from the United State just to help us work with our parties. The YM Team together with the ER Team will work hand in hand for the Christmas Carnivals this coming December 4, 2008 at Smokey Mountain-Tondo, Manila for over 600 kids to cater and 200 parents. December 6, 2008 at Grace Christian Fellowship and with other 6 churches-Olongapo City with 600 kids and 200 parents and December 8, 2008 at Kanawan Tribe-Morong, Bataan about 200 kids and 86 parents. We are going to set-up games for the kids to enjoy, we will give them loot bags and groceries to the parents.God is so good to us because He touches the heart of this very important people with a lot of important things to do at their home just to come here and join with us in our ministries. I know for sure that a lot of kids and families will be happy this Christmas because people of God contributed their money, time and effort just to give some joy to them. So to all who made this gift of fun possible to the children and families... May our God in heaven whom we serve truly bless us abundantly.
And to the ER team...Hoooray to you guys! More blessing.

Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...! it important?

"The joy of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)"

I love to read devotional books because its refresh my inmost being. Reading the inspiring word of God makes me get up again and continue to run the run of life.
Joy is a very serious concept in the Bible as it is said in the book I am reading. It is not a superficial warm and fussy kind of feeling...."It's the fruit of the Spirit." It can help a person specially those who believe in Jesus Christ as God and Savior to overcome all kinds of adversity.
In my life as a worker of God is not that easy. I defended everything to God even the tiniest thing I ever need. But, yes, there are times that I really would like to do it my way and end up in vain...struggling. There are times that I woke up in the middle of the night to pray with all surrender to HIM.
Then...comes the Lord with His grace and joy giving it to me again. today ask God to send you His supernatural joy and feel yourself grow strong in His life-changing joy....

Yes, JESUS loves me!

"Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!"

We've been through a lot of tough times, hard situations, confusing moments this past few months of our lives. Every road we want to travel is rough. Friends are hard to find, the people whom you know that would understands you are staying away from you. You want to yell at the top of your voice "...ahhhh, what a hard life! There are even times that its hard to see God. However, I still believe that no matter how cloudy the sky is... and stormy is the thing I believed and will always believe that....Jesus loves me....Yes, JESUS loves me. You want to know how did I learn about this?... it's because....the Bible tells me so.
