The Year 2010 in Review

The past year was indeed a very good and fruitful year for me. If I am going to enumerate each and every blessings God has poured unto me, the space won't definitely be enough so I'll just mention the major ones.

As early as February, I was given an opportunity to be a part of the training team in Bangkok for the Training of Facilitators. It was the second country I have visited. That was also the time and place where a job I have prayed and applied for was offered to me by my future boss then and mentor.

June came and I went on board as the Coordinator for Asia Pacific Region and the Philippines for this non government organization. The remuneration was more than I've expected as well as the amount of time I have to spend traveling.

Two months after God sent me to India, the third country on my list and then after another a couple of months I went to Kenya, Africa all for the same purpose of learning and being a part of the training team. Only in India where God have shown me the bigger picture of what I am doing currently for His kingdom but all these trips were very memorable.

Also I was able to see and visit Zamboanga, Davao, Cebu, Iloilo and General Santos, gained new friends while doing the ministry in the country.

Above all, a good health in spite of the busy schedule and traveling, the restoration of my relationship with my father, very supportive church and friends and co-ministry workers, and time to relax and rest in between are some of the major things I am very grateful and thankful to our dear Lord.

God has been and will always be good and a loving father. I am sure He has a lot more in store for me and for everyone else. Let us just continue to yield and entrust our lives to Him, do our best to obey Him and deepen our relationship with Him.

Have a very happy and prosperous New Year brothers and sisters! God bless you all!

I rejoice with you my brother. Your look back at 2010 gave a great picture of the places the Lord has taken you and how you have allowed Him to lead and use your life and testimony. I pray you will have clear direction and leading in 2011 in every facet of your life. You inspire me and bless me, thank you.

Happy New Year, God bless.

That is indeed a great year my friend.

By the way, are you available to give a talk on HIV/AIDS to Courage and other SSA support groups? I sent you an e-mail but I got no reply so far.

Hope you can drop a short note to couragemanila@yahoo.com.

The schedule will totally depend on your availability. I've been wanting to have this talk to my fellow SSA brothers because many of them sadly are not that very much aware of this issue.

I will wait for your reply.

May God continue to bless you.


Sincerely,

Courage Webmaster
