FEBRUARY UPDATE
Your partnership truly makes an impact to them as we meet every week. Thank you for sending me to bring hope to these students. May their smiles give joy to your heart!
ViICTORY WEEKEND. There were 29 participants who joined the two day retreat, 24 of them went through water baptism. Most of them were students particularly from University of the Philippines (UP-Tac), Leyte Normal University (LNU) and Eastern Visayas State University (EVSU). It was an amazing time for them to experience God in a very powerful way as they received healing, restoration and freedom from sin.

John 8:3-6 says "So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed!"

I will never get tired doing crazy stuff with them :-)

It's more fun to be with young people!

This Japanese-British Accent young lady has changed my heart as much as the people around her.

I never ever thought that a young lady like her could change my heart forever (since the first day I listened to her Japanese -British accent stories).

While heading towards her home, she suddenly said to me "you know what, if you already have a family of your own, I think you'll be the best mother in the whole world".

My heart melted that night. Sounds very familiar. And then one by one I remembered those people I loved and who said the same thing to me. Yes, the MOMMY MAMA instinct kicks in again. And I can't stop but recall those days when a bunch of people called me by this name, who definitely started it all until it became a beautiful name call. Such a music to my ear.

I know God is bringing me back to the first day when I decided to obey Him in reaching out to people. When everything else was purely because of His love towards me that I cannot contained anymore but love others.

No programs. No hidden agenda.

No ifs, no buts.

But just loving people, period.

When my heart would break to what breaks His.

And He broke my heart again the way He broke it before the moment I met her.

February has been a very busy month for me but my heart is full. I know one thing is for sure, God is allowing me to grow in love more and more.

Thank you for your partnership. I am growing because there are people like you who believed in my calling. Thank you for taking a big part in my journey especially here in Tacloban. To love is truly God's idea. To be like Him is a wonderful art. Thank you for helping me become Christ like. I know I am still far but when I get there I will always look back on how much your partnership pushed me to be more of Him each day.
