'Given Much, I Too Must Give'

Deep in our hearts is a feeling on how we could of help to those "brothers" who have the need of help from us as we listened to the special musical number of President George Tobias' 4 children who sang "Because I have been given much, I Too Must Give." (Hymn # 219)

Our Church has received several used clothes for our brothers and sisters who have been victimized  by the typhoon Sendong there at Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City in Mindanao.

Our family has also given something [though not much] for them. At least we do our share.

This year's Christmas Day, my family is almost complete except my eldest son who is in Manalo Fortich, Mindanao right now. My in-laws and grandchildren are also with us as we go to Church and renew our covenant with the Lord this Sunday, December 25.

After our 3-hour Sunday services, we pose at the ground of the Church for a posterity souvenir.

Then before heading home, we drop by at the public plaza of La Carlota. Have another pose for Christmas Day's souvenir pictures.
