Camp and Travel


I love to travel it is because I find it very relaxing for me. If somehow I find myself bored and stressed, going out would bring me back to my senses. Even a simple walk outside will really help. In every travel find myself enjoying the views of the trees, green plants in the fields with its colorful flowers, the blue skies and its fluffy clouds. The sight of them makes me feel closer to God, His creations really reflects His magnificence.

Recently, we had an opportunity to be at the BBCA (Baptist Bible College Asia) Camp. I told my husband if we can go at the camp. He settled everything for our accommodation. This time I know it won't be easy to travel with two children around - JC and Eu-La. But still I insisted for us go. I know I needed time to go out and be in a place very different from the four corners of our house. Most of the time it gets me bored staying at the house looking after the children and doing house hold chores. Joining the camp would break the daily routine we had.

The Gift of a Child




Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Psalms 127:3 (New American Standard Version)

God has blessed us with two children, Joseph Celso and Eunice Lauren. They have brought us so much joy and challenge on how to raise them. It is our desire and prayer that they too in God's perfect time will come to know Christ and serve also in the ministry.

I just celebrated my birthday. Since the start of the month, I  have made self reflections of what I am now and compared the past years of my life. God made me realized of the things that I needed to work on to keep me growing in faith. It also made me grateful for everything I have in my life and desired to want more of Him.

Remembering my childhood days, growing up in a Christian family, I got used in going to church every Sunday attending Sunday schools. It was my mother who was really eager for us to be present during service programs and activities in the church. She have done the best she could so we can be guided in the principles written in the Bible. In which I now consider to be the very best gift I had from my mother.

Learn...Act...Teach



Truly it is God's grace that enable us to continually minister with different types of people. And it has been five years of God's grace, faithfulness and provision how our Bible School continued. It has always been an opportunity and blessing to be used in equipping church leaders through teaching, conducting seminars, trainings and also facilitating the school. God has used different people to pray, to support us even in the financial needs of the school and to volunteer even without compensation to share their knowledge and train laymen and church workers in His vineyard.

It is really overwhelming to see how God worked for the past five years in our Bible School ministry.

Fun, Ball and Pins






It has been a long time since I haven't played bowling and even couldn't remember the last time we played. One thing I remember, my husband (Pastor Celso) and I often play ten pin bowling game almost seven years ago with my little brother Joshua. Main reason was that the bowling alley was just across the street of our bread store there in Calicanto.

It was such a great idea from the Young Stewards - the name of our Youth Group, to go out one Sunday afternoon and play a bowling game besides of having their ordinary cell group meeting inside the four corner of our church room. It was just too exciting for me to play the game though what we will be playing is the duckpin bowling.
