Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance?

You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.

– Micah 7:17 (NIV)


Wow… He pardons sin and forgives transgression, does not stay angry forever and delights at being merciful! That is the kind of God we have and what are you waiting for? CONFESS your sins! Give it a try, remember, “He delights to show mercy”. Have your guilt lifted away from your shoulders by the God who made the heavens and the earth. Don’t let this one pass.

Finally, finally

Finally, I bought my first laptop ever, a Samsung rc410.

Its not that flashy, but hey… i needed a machine that fits my budget and my needs… which are chatting, blogging and surfing and it fits quite snugly.

I’m happy.

I’ve tested it quite a bit, used it for Facebook chatting, Skype video calling, watching movies, surfing the net, watching on Youtube, even helped my friend locate and download drivers for his laptop that found itself in need of a Windows XP re-installation.

But I guess I’ll be paying Jumbo Electronics (Dubai Mall branch) a visit this week. I tried watching HD film (Ip Man) via VLC with the machine running on batteries, and in 2 occasions, it gave me a Blue Screen. I tried running the same HD movie on the same software but with the AC plugged in, voila! played smoothly. I’m still testing it though and once an anomaly is confirmed, be ready for an explanation Jumbo.

So far, everything is a-ok.

And right now, I’d like to thank Father God for this provision and may He use this machine for His glory alone and as a staunch ally of mine in the ministry He gave me.

Thank You Father!


Its been 25 hours since our Internet connection was installed.

I can’t benefit from it unless I buy my own laptop.

Some say that its a good time to buy during Ramadan because they have special offers.

Others say that it is better to wait off the season – festivities command high prices.


What would it be Father?

UST can cross the line

The largest human cross was achieved by 13,266 participants at an event organised by the University of Santo Tomas (Philippines) in Manila, Philippines, on 9 March 2011.

Imagine if all these more than 13,000 people accepted the Lord Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior, wouldn’t it be truly a mighty human cross showcasing God’s glorious victory? And wouldn’t the University of Santo Tomas faithfully serve its means-that is to educate people towards the love and fear of God?

That would really be UST crossing the line from higher education to eternal salvation.

I’d like that.

Waiting and wanting

We are on our 3rd day waiting for the Etisalat techs to install our internet in our house. grrrr

I am on my 3rd day wanting to buy a laptop for myself. hehehe


Leaving on a Jet Plane 2

All my bags are packed (and the bagoongs too!) standing here outside our door, I hate to step outside and say goodbye.

I’m on my way to Manila for my flight scheduled shortly after midnight. Bus will leave 3PM.

I already miss my family even now.

Comfort us Lord and may You keep us safe in our travels.
