Its 4 days before the conference for Singles and Youth Ministry of CFC-FFL US.
To my surprised, i found myself working in visuals team!!! whut?!?!
Adding up all the number of years of my being a fulltime worker, i know i’ve learned so much from this calling and still God continues to put me in situations where i can learn more!
I’ve experienced working in visuals only because in latin america there’s no other who can do that, and i do just the simple stuff, power point and putting on music and or pictures for short videos.
BUT now, God is beautifully challenging me.
On our first meeting, i was mentioning what are the programs i know for visuals and all i got was a statement saying that there is a “better” program for that now! YAY! I’M OBSOLETE?!?!
BUT now, i am doing it! I am not obsolete! God wants an upgraded missionary so i can reach and do so much more for HIM!
I need to “upgrade” myself in my prayer life … pray some more.
I need to “upgrade” myself in my way of relating to people … love some more until it hurts.
I need to “upgrade” in the way i work … professionalism and excellence is the name of the game!
My God upgrades me every time i receive HIM through the communion and so i let HIM renew me through HIS love and mercy.
This is the best upgrade we can ever have … it’s free … it’s unlimited and most of all it’s an upgrade you can share to anyone else without the need to reboot every now and then.
I am happy God “upgrades” me lovingly for HIS mission and work here on earth.
Be at the mercy of God and of no one else.
Not even your favorite food…
nor your most loved person or persons….
your being limited….
your not knowing…
All of these and many more should not limit you in sharing Jesus. Many times it may hurt. Many times it may not go according to how you have planned it. BUT as always, there is a reason for everything. We may never understand it now BUT one day you will wake up and say, “oh, ok…now i understand why!”
So for now, we are called to humble ourselves and to endure because, indeed, HE IS AT WORK! =)
My friends, consider yourselves fortunate when all kinds of trials come your way, for you know that when your faith succeeds in facing such trials, the result is the ability to endure. Make sure that your endurance carries you all the way without failing, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. James 1:2-4
To my dear canker sore,
Thank you for coming into my life, i mean into my mouth!
Because of you i can’t eat so much and i’ve been saying no to my favorite spicy foods. Because of you i learn to offer the pains you are giving me for the conversion of sinners. When i brush my teeth, you make me cry. When i eat anything with salt you sting. You make me talk less too since when i move my mouth, where you rest, you hurt!
I say, until when will you be with me? If you say decide to leave me now, i promise, i will not stop you! You can just go and promise me not to see me anymore. I will be better, i swear.

Check out who’s waiting for me at Mary Immaculate Parish.
Thank you St Therese for all your prayers and love.
You so know the desires of my heart…teach me to wait some more for all my prayers to be answered. If it will not be given to me, I will still be happy because I know with your intercession God is preparing great stuff for me. Yay! 🙂
I am now staying with a mexican family for my hispanic mission.
Yesterday as soon as I got in “my room” this is what was waiting for me. Yay! Son dulces de Mexico que se llama “pulparindo”…. Mmmm sweetness from God. 🙂
Was surprised when my host mom, Geny brought this meal to my room so I can eat dinner while I’m on a conference meeting. Yay! Talking about being so loved in the mission. 🙂
Just wanna say i love you!
For the past days you have been capturing my heart so intense.
All our dates for the past days has been awesome and our conversations. mmm…I guess I’m learning to listen huh? I still need to learn and master that skill.
BUT yeah, i just wanna say thank you and after talking and seeing you i can say i terribly missed being with you again. When i look at you i can feel how you see my heart and how you speak to me. Silently but i so know you are there talking to me.
Yesterday, before meeting you I know you made “that” to welcome me. I feel you telling me how you wait for me.
