Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just try your best, try everything you can.
And don’t worry what they tell themselves when your’e away.

It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything will be just fine, everything will be alright

Hey you know they’re all the same.
You know your’e doing better on your own, so don’t buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn’t matter if it’s good enough for someone else.

Ellie’s visit in our house.

I spent 3 weeks in Lucban Quezon to be part of an evangelistic effort of Piis Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The event took place on a tent that could give shelter to 50 people. The meetings lasted 14 nights with an American speaker. My part was to translate his message in Tagalog. 14 people were baptized at the end of the meetings.

Picture # 1 Baptism of Liezl. Pastor Peras officiated the baptism.
Picture # 2 The 14 people who decided to give their life to Jesus.
Picture # 3 Michael, the speaker for the effort tells the story of Jesus. That’s me on the right, translating what he is saying.
Picture # 4 Jezreel and Jethro are theology students who helped us throughout the series. They went to the houses of the attendees and gave bible study there.

What a scene of peace and serenity! Hello there Ellie! 

The PAC collegiate trip in Padre Burgos Quezon in pictures.

I wish many more students joined the trip :) The trip was an escape from the scorching heat of Manila and at the same time from our busy lives. We got to spend a lot of time travelling on the sea. No electricity, no roads, no internet. The trip was a wonderful experience for all of us! Thanks to Nica’s parents for accompanying and bringing us to this place! The food was really fresh and delicious! 

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. - Psalm 19:1

Beautiful sunset in Padre Burgos, Quezon. Oh boy my 40d and Sigma 10-20 did the job again! No full frame cameras during my trip to Quezon for the PAC Collegiate Ministry!
