Thank You Lord for your blessing.
Last Sunday, we tried to fit in 22 Young Believers into our semi-renovated room that normally serves 15 people comfortably. Yes, 22! That’s not even with the YB leaders/advisors. Due to the aging kids who used to run around in our church, now having turned 12 years old, we’ve no choice but to allow them into the youth group. Sweetly enough, some of them have been waiting years to participate in all the youth functions and events and Bible studies, not to mention just be involved in the fellowship with the other youth. Some of their parents have also been waiting for them to reach the age of involvement. Parents have come up to me to state their concerns and their hopes in their son/daughter joining the group. This is a positive sign to me, confirming the impact the youth has on our church body and the impact youth group has on individuals. I think over the years, it’s really an awesome thing to hear so many parents share blessings they see in their child because of being in the youth group, some small blessings, and some that are gigantic and life changing/saving, and I’m really glad to know […]
For my ladies. Something free with purchase of some of your favorite brands.
I’m doing my part since she’s so graciously put up her CD for free.

So go download it. For FREE.
So as I was in the middle of the dreaded chore of ironing the household clothes, Zem randomly walks in and says, "I love you Mamam. Don’t forget me. I’ll be so sad if you forget me." After her dramatic soliloquy, she left the room and resumed playing with her safari animals while listening to a mix I made for her consisting of her favorite songs. With slight chagrin, I admit I had some influence of her emotional speeches because I always request the same thing from her. 😀
"wadi" & "gabi" :make up words she uses when she doesn’t know what to say. "moos-tache" :every time she sees a mustache like her lolo. "I miss my brother Hong Hong" "It’s my favorite and my best." :hugely influenced by Charlie & Lola.
