Days 15 to 19: A Recap

Today’s Bible Verse
“Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” (Romans 15:7)

Day 15
Paul and Tina Dario + their 3 adorable boys (Justin, Kobe and Aaron) hosted us during our stay in Nashville.

I feel truly blessed that God allowed our paths to cross, meet them and get to know them. They are raising such wonderful, affectionate boys!

My husband and I took the Dario family to Chuck E. Cheese’s for some pizza and a night of games.

They are such a beautiful family!


Here is my picture with Chuck E. Cheese



Day 16

Last day of training! It was a very productive week!


The Darios left for LA so we stayed at Eben and Malou Tabelisma's home. We had a lovely conversation over dinner -- shared a lot of funny stories and insightful ones as well.



Day 17

Was supposed to leave Nashville and head to Atlanta . However, our friend Jonathan Camcam invited me and Robert to stay one more day.

He had a benefit concert for the Filipino-American community. We also wanted to see Eben and Malou's daughter Keziah dance, The 1st Family perform and see MariCoo's ballet performance.

It was such a fun time! I admire Jonathan. He seems to never run out of energy or a smile.



Day 18

We attended another service at Bethel World Outreach Center. I love their worship!


It was slightly weird for me to see Pastor Steve preach with a jacket on a Sunday service. Got used to the casual dress code in Victory Fort!


We were happy to see Dr. Jun Escosar and Pastor Juray Mora. They arrived that day from the Philippines and will be in Nashville for the church plant boot camp.


After service we were invited to have lunch at James and Janet Harper’s home about ten minutes away from Bethel.


We met Pastor James during the FUEL conference. Robert and James hit it off right away. The Harpers believe in an organic diet. James prepared us this delicious turkey sandwich.


We prayed together right before we left their home and drove to see family in Atlanta.



Day 19

Love being with family again! I haven’t seen my cousin Nick in 9 years so this was a happy time for us. I grew up with Nick and my sister always playing together.

Nick knows his way around Atlanta. He took us out to eat at Felini’s pizza. The pizza was good!!! Gosh, I am so easy to please when it comes to good food.


Afterwards we went out and got ice cream from Bruster’s with Cathy. Got my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough! Masarap!!



The Challenge
I wrote a letter to someone who is important to me but lives far away. I hope it brought a smile to that person’s face.

I also had a specific message from the Lord to tell something to someone but I must admit, I held back.

Still praying for the strength to actually do it. Please pray for me!
