It's MISSIONS Month at HIS LIFE Central

What if this HAPPENS?
Start your Christian IMAGINATION working with the PRAYER of JABEZ in place ... Remember the prayer of JABEZ?

1 Chronicles 4:9 (NIV)
9 Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, {9 Jabez sounds like the Hebrew for pain.} saying, "I gave birth to him in pain."
10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain." And God granted his request.

BRINGING His Life Beyond Borders

Bringing His Life Beyond Borders
Takes Prayer and Expectation

“Pray that the Master's Word will simply take off and race through the country to a groundswell of response.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1 (Message)

Bringing His Life Beyond Borders
Takes Retelling of that Old Fashion Story

“He said to them, “It is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that a change of hearts and lives and forgiveness of sins would be preached in his name to all nations, starting at Jerusalem”
Luke 24:46-47

Bringing His Life Beyond Borders

Trina TURNS 2

The birthday of TRINA was last September 20. We enjoyed (Joshua, Mama Trixie, Trina and Elmo) eating our lunch at the newly renovated McDonalds in Bacolod City. We feasted over sppagetti, hamburger, chicken and fries. But Trina in her excitedment ate only 5 pieces of fries. Josh enjoyed his oreo cake dessert at the McCafe shop (the 1st outside Metro Manila), while I had my cafe latte there too.
After bringing Josh back to school, Trina, Trixie and I went to Gaisano for some kiddie games and play. She also tried out the computer at Netopia where I spent a few minutes checking my email. She also went to an arcade just to hear the sounds and see the sights of people dancing, singing and playing. Her day culminated by opening YOYOs xylophone gift (see picture above) ... it was a great day! The Lord's DAY ... brining us Trina TWO years AGO :-)
Thanks to Titos Ranty and Faith for the TREAT ... mmmmmm :-)

A TRIP with Bunchie and Josh

I make it a point to date the kids individually. Trina and me ... Josh and me ... but in these pictures it was Trix and Josh and me ... the first two pics on top were taken just last week as we sped to the closes piers we have in Bacolod City. We saw SuperFerry 2 being prepared to leave that night going to either Manila or Cagayan (I did not ask). We had a great time here ... we bought a number of pork barbeques and some bread and drinks ... brought it near the edge of the pier and started to have our afternoon snack. Enjoy gid di si Josh and Trix. The picture below was during our evening dessert at Jollibee ... you notice Josh lost already his front tooth ... he is now a big boy ready to learn more about life and enjoy it ... may he grow up to be a a Man of God.

Going to MARKET

Here we are EARLY in the morning tagging along with MAMA Trixie ... finding the best ingredients for her LUMPIA ... this happens 3 times a week. Not with Trina all the time though. Usually Trixie goes inside the marketplace while I read and read and meditate in a local coffee shop outside 'Burgos'. This has been a thing that I learned and is enjoying after I got married to Trix. I did not go to market before ... NOW, I look forward to it. Trina seems to be enjoying too. Wheres MANONG? He has been brought to School already.
