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 :)
