A spark of hope

This is not the first time I write about the organization I’m joining in,  Light collective outreach is now becoming a part of my life.
I’m happy to know I served this ministry very well.

My feet keep me coming back, keep bringing me to this place called smokey mountain because My heart keeps wanting to see again and again their innocent smiles and eyes…

Getting to know each them deeper, Discovering their lives, their weaknesses and strengths and guiding them with God’s love thru his word kept them encourage and motivated, coaching them, telling them to get up and keep moving on after a fall, a failure, a mistake, holding them by hands and  helping them to walk in this lonely and confusing world.

I’m comforted to know with this small acts of caring, with my heartfelt simple little prayers to God of my love to this Kids are the possibilities of a better and brighter future for them.
my hopes will not disappoint me, – Romans 5:5
I will do my part, and God will do His part
and the magic will follow.

Pray for me to keep pressing forward.

Light Collective Outreach: A Christmas story

December truly is the busiest month of the year, this is the month where people around the world finding a way to give and share and some looking for charities and foundation to visit, to show the true meaning of Christmas,

It is the beggining of the month when we started the preparation, I saw how people worked hard to make sure we didnt lack in anything, to make each kid feel special for this day.

I praised God for all the volunteers that helped, the OCC’s shoeboxes from Samaritan’s Purse, the sponsors, and all other sponsors that God povide to make this day successful.

Being a real volunteer is not just about going to the area on that day and share care and love for the kids on the spot.

The behind the scene of all the stuff, this is hardest part of the program, this where only few volunteers would work so hard, going home late, giving away their money, time and energy and this is the part where we keep on praying from time to time because some things may or may not going well, toiling to get all things done. Well even though some didn’t really wanted to be a part of “behind the scene” I believe they miss to experience the meaning of “cost of being a disciple.” It means  serving and loving God in a not convenient situation, and this are also the people who has the greatest smile and joy after a successful outreach, seeing how all the toil paid of, and how it is all worth it because they bring God glory.

Ate Liezel with Duaine, Our little Artist passionately wanted to learn the art of folding a paper.
Kuya Cyrus and Kuya John story telling and bible study with the Kids.

Praying… became their favorite part of bible study.

Sorry to connect something very personal, it just happen someone asked who me warmth this Christmas, lol!

Many people knew I havent had a boyfriend since birth.

Well some would say I need to find, search or have one. Saying it in a way like it is a “must have” this Christmas. But as for me, I think I have everything that keeps my heart warmth, and God has a thousand ways to warmth a heart. Love? Open your eyes folks! Love comes from many shapes and form this day it came to from the Kids genuine smile,hugs and kisses.

And Jesus? For me he is enough.


He is enough for all of us because he is the reason and he is all we need.

Thank you for all the people that volunteered whom God called to serve.

Thank you Jesus!

Merry Christmas Everyone.
