may 27

Your Birthdate: May 27
Your birth on the 27th day of the month (9 energy) adds a tone of selflessness and humanitarianism to your life path.
Certainly, you are one who can work very well with people, but at the same time you need a good bit of time to be by yourself to rest and meditate.
There is a very humanistic and philanthropic approach in most of things that you do.

This birthday helps you be broadminded, tolerant, generous and very cooperative.
You are the type of person who uses persuasion rather than force to achieve your ends.
You tend to be very sensitive to others' needs and feelings, and you able to give much in the way of friendship without expecting a lot in return.

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

Thank you sa mga bumati. I really felt special this year. Thanks sa a3! I felt so blessed to be with you guys, in whom I see God, on my birthday.
Thanks kay ray2 for this


Bringing in God: Summer High School Officers' Training

1 Timothy 4:12
Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example to believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith and purity.

God has set me on fire. I'm excited for the next school year.

To the ends of the earth
Love unfailing, overtaking my heart
You take me in.
Finding peace again, fear is lost in all you are.

And I will give the world to tell your story
'cause I know that you've called me.
I know that you've called me.
I've lost myself for good within your promise.
I won't hide it. I won't hide it.

Jesus I believe in you
and I would go to the ends of the earth,
to the ends of the earth.
For you alone are the son of God
and all the world will see that you are God, you are God

central a3 youth camp (summer '06) =>

This weekend was super fun. The camp was great. It was another of God’s victories. As usual, it was super astig to serve God and see Him take over the hearts of each of the 27 participants.

Char and I were DGL’s to Arrie, Chelsea, Carrie, Marga, Axil, Vanessa and Stef. I love you guys! Pati na rin kina Lou, Bianca, Car, Caren, Nico (yes. Rogelio yan. May taga-pisay nag-attend. Haha.), Ench, JJ, Yanna, Kyla, Jerome, Nick, Francis, Gabbie, Maica, Renee, Elle, Kim, Jake, Miguel & Ai. Kita kita sa Saturday. Uulitin ko ang sinasabi ko sa blog entries after every camp. Welcome to our new brothers and sisters in YFC! I’m looking forward to working with you in service of God and neighbor.

And of course, as part of the service team, madami din akong natutunan. Gagayahin ko ang pag-enumerate ni shayne of the things she learned dun sa camp na meron sila. :)

1. God’s love is always overwhelming. We just have to take time to notice it. And with His love, we wouldn’t need anything else.
2. From listening to talk 3, I learned that we also have to forgive ourselves. Pinatawad na tayo ni God kaya hindi na dapat natin idiin sa sarili natin yung mga mali. Our God is a merciful God and with each time He forgives us, we should also forgive ourselves and change our ways instead of dwelling on the past. Kung si God kaya tayong patawarin, dapat kaya din nating patawarin ang sarili natin.
3. In serving, it’s not only the receiver who benefits because service also brings about growth. Sinabi to nila miggy and david nung faci training.
4. Love the participants with God’s love. That way hindi ka mauubusan ng love because kung love lang natin yung gagamitin, it wouldn’t be enough. Humans have the tendency to choose whom to love and hold back in giving pero ang love ni God unconditional and totally selfless. Kay Kuya Mike naman galing to.
5. Though it’s important to know the “logistics” or specific roles as service team, hindi dapat mawala ang passion to serve because it’s the earnest desire to be used as God’s instrument that will help one get the work done well. From Kuya PJ this time.
… at madami pang iba.

I learned so much and I realized yun yung mga sinabi sa amin nung nagfaci training kami. Marami diyan alam ko na pero everytime na I am given the chance to serve, narereinforce pa lalo. Ang galing talaga ni God!

And since a3 camp 'to, madaming pics. I got these from a3's multiply o san pa kayo?! cluster na may multiply. lol. Click here for the camp album. :D At kung kulang pa yan, visit the multiply sites of the members of the service team. tignan natin kung di kayo magsawa. haha. Here are 3 so you could see our beautiful faces. :p Click them for the large version:

Abot Langit (Awesome Worship)

Yesterday, we had a praise concert at the Meralco Theater for the benefit of Gawad Kalinga. Dual purpose, to worship the Lord and to be able to help those in need.

YFC Central A3 (Kuya Mike (happy birthday!!!), Kuya PJ, PJ, Miggy, Coy, Don, Ate Dea, Ate Kams, Mela, Doms, Kylie, Pearl, Trish, Eiz, Char, my sister and I) sang Heaven, danced(haha!) and hyped the crowd at the end.

The 29AD Singers and band led the night of praise and worship. Fr. Bob was giving the exhortations. Bo Sanchez gave his testimonial about Gawad Kalinga and our capacity to love. Tita Penny gave her sharing about her experience in the presence of God and how much she felt the love of God in the 15 minutes that she was with Him. Tita Susan, Trish and Pearl gave their sharings about Tito Bob and sang his favorite song. It was so heartwarming. The Believe Dance Company, CADs (tama ba ang capitalization? Basta ung dance group ng Ateneo), the Buayang Bato Community Siga, Sibol and Sagip members, the Meralco KFC & YFC danced and gave interpretation to the songs and also hyped up the crowd at the end.

But the true star of the show was God and we all felt His presence that night. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!

It was so much fun kasi nakaperform kami sa Meralco Theater, nagkaroon ng dressing room at may backstage passes. haha. :)

Here are some of the pics... (grabe ang konti ng pics ko. sister ko kasi may hawak ng camera. haha. pero thanks na rin kasi sa kanya galing tong pictures.) thank you din kay millie and ate kams for the other pics.
