care to listen?

The last two quarters of 2009 had been memorable for me- I attended a three-month Christian Life Program and finally a Dedication Rites on November 21 to commence my being part of Singles for Christ (SFC).
In between those, I was able to attend the SFC Regional Conference,
volunteered for a Gawad Kalinga (GK).
site (and became a wannabe construction
worker, lol), was confined to the hospital for the third time, finally
went for a confession and attended mass in our town’s parish church
after like a couple of years, did community service, attended household
prayer meetings, fellowships, and yeah, parties, and met a lot of
fellow SFCs who eventually became my friends..well.. true friends.

Here are some of those moments…

Fellowship- Halloween Party

And for December! On Christmas eve, we gave dinner to the 49 inmates  of the Burauen Municipal Jail. The prisoners were so touched by such thoughtfulness. On Christmas morning, with one of our brothers dressed as Santa Claus, we had a motorcade on the outskirts of our town- mostly on the less fortunate barangays, and had a gift-giving for kids. The surprised smiles, the laughters of the kids, and even the parents at seeing us, at seeing Santa Claus at such unexpected time, were more than enough to make our Christmas holiday really complete..

kids who rarely, if not at all, get to see a “live” Santa Claus were so happy to see one before them…

Happy New Year and Merry Christmas to everyone! and may Jesus continue to reign in our hearts..
