I know I'm lagging behind in my updates here but I just wanna write here our Christmas celebration. My hubby and I together with my kinfolks celebrated Christmas in the city of pines. We went there on December 23rd and came back home December 27th. It's the first Christmas that my sister Violy was not with us no more. I missed her so much and I felt that my brother-in-law and his 2 boys did miss her too. Also I missed my auntie Aning. Last year, we were all together celebrating Christmas. Who would think that it was their last Christmas with us. I know they were happy celebrating Christmas in heaven. We had a great time there, we had lots of foods during Christmas eve like fried chicken wings, roll cake, spaghetti, fruit salad, and Italian bread. After we had our Noche Buena, hubby shared a poem about Christmas. Then we had the gift giving. Everybody were happy and contented. Thank you Jesus for coming into this world to save us from our sins.

Hubby and I just moved in to our new home last December 1st. God blessed us to get this 2 bedroom bungalow house with spacious kitchen, nice porch and furnished living and dining room with Narra wood furniture. The owner even constructed a new toilet and bathroom inside the house because the old bathroom was outside. The house has a spacious service area at the back with a deep well pump. It has also a spacious front and backyard with fruit bearing trees. There's a bamboo hut in front and a pigpen at the back.
The house was supposed to be rented by our friends but they changed their mind and gave it up because the CR was outside. They talked to the owner to construct a CR inside the house but she refused because she said that's a lot of expenses. Hubby decided to rent it when our friends rejected it. When we already paid the 1 month advance and 1 month deposit, the owner decided to construct a CR inside the house to my delight. We signed a 1 year contract for the lease. Now, we are happy and settled here for now. Here's a photo I took today. I'll post more next time.

We had a film showing tonight at 7:30 PM of the movie "The Burning Hell" and we had a good turn-out. The kids in my Sunday were all there and also the adults. They responded to our invitation which we announced in the church last Sunday and this afternoon we went to invite people. We had the film showing at the basketball outside the house where we hold our services. The house is not spacious so it can't accommodate all the people. Before the movie started, hubby gave a short message that hell is real, it's a lake of fire where there's gnashing and gnawing of teeth and that people should not want to go there. There will be no escape if people will go there so now that we are still alive, we should repent and turn away from our sins and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. After the movie, hubby gave an invitation but nobody went in front. Maybe they are just shy or they didn't understand the message because it's in English. Whatever the reason, we pray that the Lord will convict their hearts and they will realize their need of a Savior.
