Well Back in Manila after almost a year. I keep saying to people that we were here last year... well really it was only the begining of the year in Jan. We are in the same place as last time. It has been nice to conect with old pastors and friends we met from last time. It also have been a good time of new experiences as well. I did alot of working with street kids this time around and it has been a good time !
God Bless you all !

We as some of you know I had the chance to goto help feed street children on Christmas day. It was quite the event. We had such a good time playing and talking with all the kids who came. For most of them this would have been their only chance to eat out, usually they pick though rubbish to eat. So a memorable expirence for them !!
