Crazy...but...Fulfilling!

To days ago my husband and I went to a family camp as a volunteer staff. My husband main job aside from tens of other responsibilities was to lead the worship. Well, as for me I was assigned to help with the kids. And there were 30 of them 6 of them were 1 1/2 year old and less and the others were 12 and less.
It was my first time to attend to two crying kids at the same time. So crazy... reason that during dinner time I had two cups of strong coffee to keep me going. hahaha. And during bed time the coffee got into my system and I was not able to sleep for a long time (poor me.)
It was indeed crazy but very fulfilling knowing those families who just lived in the street and they have no home and food is really a big problem to them reason that they snip solvent to avoid the need of food.... were able to come and experienced all the good things. The kids we were tending were all malnourished with big eyes, big tummies, and has diarrhea... oh goodness!
The food was buffet: so picture in your mind all these people getting a mountain full of food on their plates and try to get more after the first plate. To them it was a feast... if they could only eat today for the need of food for the other day... they would probably do.
We, the staff of MERCY MINISTRY stayed at the tent to give way of the families whom of the first time in their life experience a comfortable sleep at the cabin, with a nice bed and comforting sheets and pillows. We were uncomfortable... its hard to get sleep, but thinking of the families sleeping nicely makes it worth.
The owner of the camp did an amazing job too by understanding the people we minister. The rule of the camp was not to get food morethan you could eat... but these people get more than we expected and of course means more left overs, but the owner just smile at them and lovingly told us to remind them to get little anyways they can always go back to get more.
We come home sleepy and tired but happy and satisfied!

VISA: denied

Was not able to get a visa: the US embassy consul who interviewed us said that the reason that we did not qualified is because we are missionary and we did not have enough money. (hahaha).
The Lord my God will someday make things possible in His time. He will show people who doesnt believe in Him how blessed we are who depend on Him alone.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, the testing of your faith produces perseverance." - James 1:2-3

Isn't it Ironic! (poor but rich!)

Let the poor say I am rich, says the Lord!

I was born in a family whose means of living is through rice planting or what we called "farmers". Seeing my family (I mean my Dad's side) toiling was hard for me and to me its means we a poor. A reason why I really strive hard to finish my studies because i don't want to be a farmer. When I was a child I used to dream that one day I will get rich and I will help my family and the homeless children. Someday I will help pay my grand parents debt and we will live happy. It didn't happen! until....
I came to know Jesus in my heart, and received/accept Him as my Lord and Saviour, and through His Words I became rich through faith.
Before with out Jesus in my life, riding an airplane and going to places here and abroad was just a dream... nothing but a dream. Now, that I have Jesus in my life I know that I am rich through faith and the dream that I have before come to completion. A year after I accepted Christ in my life God brought me to Bangkok, Thailand year 2000 and have brought me to some other places too here in the Philippines. And this year 2009 God brought me to Macau. But year 2003 I was invited by a friend to go to Chicago but I was not able to because I was not ready yet. But my friend had invested with that already by paying my visa application to no avail but we both believe that one day God will brought me there.
On July 25 will be her wedding day and.... we are invited! This is impossible... we have no means to be able to go there. But last Friday amidst of financial crisis and a lot of must paid due bills we were able to pay for our visa application. We say we don't have the means to pay or spend more because we have nothing to spend anymore. But every need we have after Friday was met because I know that I am rich in faith through Christ Jesus!

Hearts desire!

This song is the prayer of my heart today. Only God knows what is my hearts desires. I praise God for... He can use anything to encourage us His children... as He uses this song to encourage me. If you have this song in your music files try to listen to it and listen to God. Sorry I forgot who the artist is . God bless!


From the Inside out


A thousand times I've failed
Still Your mercy remains And should I stumble again
I'm caught in Your grace
Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame

Your will above all else
My purpose remains
The art of losing myself
In bringing You praise
Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame
In my heart and my soul
Lord I give You control
Consume me from the inside out
Lord let justice and praise
Become my embrace
To love you from the inside out

Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart
Is to bring You praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out
