Finally an update

Yay! it's  actually end of the month and only my 2nd post.  Thankful that I am was able to squeeze it today.

I don't know how I am going to rate my January because there is one major heartache happened to our family.

My mothers youngest sister aged 63 years old went home with the Lord last January 16.  It was so sudden, and we were all sad. I immediately went home to be with my Nanay, we went straight to my Aunt's house which is one and a half hour away from our house in the province. My Aunt who permanently resides in the US went home also and it was a very sad reunion for them. 

The good thing with a death in the family ( yes we have to find good even in the worst situation) is that we get to see almost all of our relatives and somehow it eases the pain. It was also at this time that they started to plan for a yearly family reunion. Looking forward to our first ever family reunion this December, another reason to be excited for the holidays.

Our Uber operations (naks!) meaning hubs source of living was affected for two weeks because of this, but that's ok. My principle always is that "family comes first" and "we can never out give God". We lost some income but I am hopeful we can recover in due time.

Work is even crazier than last year, I was given more loads this year. I actually declined the job offer but my boss did not accept it. So for now, I am learning new things, trying my best and surviving. Thank God. :)

We have also started the work for the annual youth mission camp this year, this work makes me excited and happy. I am amazed at how creative our youth officers are. This year will be another major experience for our camp attendees and I'm sure they are in for a big surprise.

well, that's it for now. I have yet to post our new years picture in Baguio, l hope I can make another post before my birthday this February :)

have a good day everyone! God bless you!

My one word for 2017

Just to remind me that whatever happens I have to surrender everything to the all knowing God who created me and has given me my life. Happy new year everyone!
