Full-Packed October

My birthday month has brought me surprises of gigantic proportions. Indeed Psalm 37:4, made its way in my life. I have been seeking joy in the Lord’s vineyard, and He gave me the desires of my heart. The month’s extravaganza started with my birthday (October 3). There was nothing unusual about the event but it made me realize how blessed I am for having a faithful God and Lord, a wonderful wife, loving families (immediate and in-laws), a great student ministry, among others. I saw my life not as a career but as a mission. God has entrusted to me a ministry that could save millions of youth struggling with different life issues.

In the second week of the month, the Lord expanded the tents of Generation 3:16 Ministries by touching the hearts of six high school teachers of a very large public high school. They want us to minister to their students, majority of which, have been struggling with poverty, with their families, peers and self-esteem. As a result, for AY 2006-2007, we have a total of 800 students being ministered every week through our E.A.G.L.E.S (Enriching and Guiding the Life Experiences of Students) Program. Days after, my application for college teaching was finally approved. Starting the 2nd semester, AY 2006-2007, I will be teaching International Political Economy in one of the prestigious universities in the country.

I had a wonderful time in Zamboanga City where I attended the Philippine Political Science Association Conference (October 26-27). Aside from eenjoying academic discourses, me and my TWSC colleagues (Joel, Sharon and Zurds) visited some of the must-see spots in the city including the Fort Pilar Museums, the Yakan Village (where they weave nice handicrafts), Vista del Mar beach Resort (overlooking the Sta. Cruz and Basilan Islands) and the famous “barteran” tiangges.
