Rebuilding 2020 Updates

If I haven’t informed you, guys, my 2020 theme is Rebuild. Period.

With that, here are the things that made me busy for the past few weeks.

I renewed my vow to stay in the parish as a youth minister for another year. We went to Regina Rica in Tanay, Rizal for a short recollection.

Also in January, I was given a Service Award for staying in the same institution for five productive and meaningful years! I couldn’t be more thankful with this milestone! Not everything stays, right?

January also led me to another courage zone which is serving the youth ministry in our diocese. I was hailed (wow hailed) or appointed as one of the support groups. Lowkey as always, though this seemed prestige to some.

I am so blessed to meet new people from different churches in our diocese. I guess, it takes heart and mind to meet them. I am so blessed.

In February, I have fun learning Mandarin. It is indeed worth the traffic and travel going to UPD.  I attended my friend’s presbyterial ordination in Polillo Island in Quezon Province. Grabe, I couldn’t be more happy for him. Chika lang.

Also, last February 29, I was given an opportunity to share to Antipolo Cathedral Youth Ministry my thoughts and reflections about love, the AGAPE kind of love.

I am beyond blessed to see young people who are interested and engaged in talking about love. Huhu. Minsan iniisip ko bakit ako ang nagbibigay nito eh samantalang ako ata ang ‘di makahanap ng True Love? Luhhh! 

Also, last February 1-2 we went to Baguio for a retreat and some sightseeing.

There are no ganaps for March because of COVID2019. 😦 I am saddened because I was not able to meet my students for the last day in school. Classes are suspended due to this pandemic. Everything was done online.

As of this writing, there are 52 confirmed cases of COVID in Philippines. It scares me and makes me panic, but what else can I do? I can only pray for everyone’s safety and health. May the good Lord heal our country. May this challenge end.  Amen.
