Be of help

Today is our Dinner for a Cause event. I'm hoping we will be able to raise funds for our scholar for this school year. Last Tuesday our team met, discussed and deliberated the new applicants and we came up with additional 2 High school and 2 College students. So for this school year we have total number of 8 scholars, for some it would be small but for a small ministry like ours it's quite big and the financial need is huge but as I've been saying here in my blog, we look beyond the need and we are assured we have a BIG GOD.

We do a lot of fund raising activities, such as garage sale (you can donate old clothes,toys, home stuff or even old stanchion posts) and we will sell that. We also make home made sweets and sell them.

I pray these young people will live a different life as we only not try to help them in school needs but also to become responsible individual. 

Please be our partner, you can pray for us and for these kids and if you have spare money to share it will be most welcome. You may contact International Teams for your donations.

Thankful Thursday-Family

It's been a while since the last time I participated in Thankful Thursday. Hopefully I'll be able to do it again every week, truly we are never out of something to be thankful for.

This week I am grateful for my family - my parents are here with us in the city and will be staying with my sister's family for a while. Thank you that finally they gave in to our request. It is hard for us to visit them so often in the province and we are worried most of the times as they were both old and living alone in our old home. Now  I can see them as often as I want to.

I am also very thankful about their health, my father stopped smoking years ago ( so no need to buy him  cigar humidors ) and I'm glad he did that. It helped him a lot, he's on medicines but for his age I consider him still healthy.  My mother is also doing good, strong and still very much willing to help her children and adores her grandkids to the max. She's also taking meds for sugar maintenance but other than that she's healthy. They're now both on their 70's but still fine. Thank God for that. 

Today, we also celebrate a niece birthday. She's my first niece and she's a joy to both her parents and to the whole family.  Thankful that she's been given to us :) 

That's me and her:
Happy 10th birthday Rachel!
Thank you Lord that I have a strong family relationship and that in tough times (like now) I can just be with them and be reminded that life is good :)

Hop on to Laurie's blog for more Thankful entries.

Sing to the Lord always!

I know I did mention here that Selah's first worship album is coming soon and that we are excited and can't wait. We always look forward to recording time. Recording maybe long and tough (specially for first timer like them) but we are all enjoying it at the moment.

But you know, sad things are also happening alongside with our recording, it's been two Sundays now that Rudolf is not seen in the church, so that means he has not been leading the worship for two Sundays now. We are currently on "transition" process (if I can call it that way, we're praying and waiting for God's leading for us in line with our church.

I'm happy though that even if these things are happening, my husband never loses his passion to sing for the Lord. Whatever happens, we will always sing and make music to our Lord for His goodness and mercy never fails :)

As a matter of fact, now that we are resting from the church, he's been honing his music skills and is very eager to learn more (music notes and all that), getting ready for more greater opportunities in serving the Lord. (just a while ago, I showed him this boomerang looper for sale and he said he wants that) he is that eager :) 
Will keep you posted about everything and as always..let's keep on praising the Lord!!

God bless everyone!

Dinner For a Cause

And again this will be for the benefit of our scholars which grew up in numbers this year, as per our tentative computation, this coming school year, we will be needing at least a hundred thousand pesos (100,000.00) or $2,350,.00 in US Dollars.

I know it's huge but I know our God who supply all our need is faithful and is even bigger than that :D

I'm praying for more monthly supporters and if you want to be one , you can donate any amount from 100.00 per month or higher. Just visit FISHNETS MINISTRY page at International Teams website on how you can be of help.

The Dinner For A Cause will be on Friday, June 1, 2012, 7:00 PM
at LJBC Global Ministry Center,
4627 Arellano Avenue, Palanan, Makati City

Selah's worship album soon!

I can't wait.

Rudolf with his band mates met the owner of the recording studio last night and they were all overwhelmed. God's favor indeed and we know that it is His will for the band to have this worship album. We've waited enough (eight years) and now is the time.

So they've now their schedule of recording  for the month of May, Rudolf will be busy for that and of course I will be supporting him all the way until we see the finish product.

I am also overwhelmed, happy..and it all seems surreal to me..that they will now record all their songs officially.

Please keep on praying for the Selah band, first and foremost for our hearts to keep on looking to Jesus, to seek the Lord everyday, to worship Him and extol Him more than anything else and to serve the Lord through music with gladness.

Blessings everyone!
