I love 2008

I do realize I should update this blog since it's the new year and all that. Plus, I do have so much to say about 2008. Even though Jasmine is not away from home for now

What a year!! This time last year, I was so excited for what was installed for me not knowing how great is was going to be. What a contrast from this year to last. Right now, I'm just waiting on God and everything else doing what has to be done and crossing my fingers at the same time. 

I feel like last year was my year. 2008, the year my life begun. 

First I studied like mad for the SAT, then I prepared like mad to leave. At the same time, there was a load of madness weighing down on me that just lifted off the moment I left. 

Then I said my good byes

And I left the country for the first time on a plane on my own. 

Traveled many hours and finally arrived at the ship in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. 

I sailed with the ship to Santo, Vanuatu

Lautoka, Fiji

Suva, Fiji

and finally Auckland, New Zealand

met amazing people

and did amazing ministry 

and was used as a vessel for the almighty God.

Then I went to Australia and lived in Adelaide

then because of Him, learned about Cornerstone and lived in Canowindra for 5 weeks

met and lived with amazing people

was challenged, both inside and out

saw snow, skied

traveled to a few places






Silverton, Broken Hill

Victor Harbour
Castlemaine, VIC
and other places....

God gave me an amazing friend

and we had wonderful times together

I've done, seen and experienced so many things I never thought I'd be able to, not at this stage of my life at least. I was on my own without my parents by my side, and oh how I relied on Him. He was there right by me, holding my hand, leading me, all the time.

All to the glory of God for that. Thank you Lord for the wonderful year you've given me, thank you for keeping your promise that you'll never leave me, thank  you for your provision, thank you for all the blessings you've showered upon me, thank you for the lessons I've learned, thank you for answering my prayers, thank you for the person I've come to be at this point, and most of all thank you for loving me.  Without you Lord, there is nothing, I am nothing. 

I surrender 2009 to you, Lord of my life.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.
