Prayer Group


Last weekend a group of friends and I got together to say a prayer for a friend whose cancer came back. The prayer was followed by a fellowship dinner. Each brought a dish to pass, and by the time all the foods were put on the dinner table, it was a feast! ... so many delicious dishes and all kinds of desserts. I am seated in front, the one with brownish turtle neck sweater. Ate Ev (host) is the 3rd lady from left, back row. And, oh yes, this was also an advanced b-day party for Anita, 2nd lady, from left, back row. Her actual b-day celebration is tomorrow (3/2) at a Chinese restaurant.

Afterwards, we played Jengga, and that was a riot! We had fun trying to distract the one who's "it". Thank you Kuya Tab and Ate Ev for hosting; you are such nice and gracious hosts, and God bless you and your family. Also, please pray for Ate Madeline as she is touched again by this serious illness ... for the second time, may she overcome all these difficulties and win the battle again!

If your Ate Madeline pulled through the first time, chances are she still will this time, esp. with everyone of you praying for her.

Great photos, and you there...exposed. Way to go!!!!

I'll say a prayer for her. Mari has said it true, Ate Madeline's chance of beating it now is stronger than the first time.

Thanks for sharing us your pic.

She is in my prayers. I'm glad that she has all of you as her pillar of strength to go through with this again.. and may emerge the winner against the fight with cancer.

My best wishes,

hi nance,

"sana di ka magbago!".......
can....as what they say in singapore daw hindi magsabi ng YES...kung hindi "CAN" lang daw.

thanks for saying this, i don´t know if ......"kasi treat mo lahat na parang matagal mo na silang kilala."

yan talaga ako, the person i meet-met in the first time, parang feeling ko matagal na kaming magkaibigan or we met so long already.

sabi nga ng isang friend ko at sister ko rin na......Ako daw, i treat n trust right away to anybody or yon, sabi mo. "na parang matagal ko ng kilala"....
open daw ako kaagad......

ewan ko, ganito talaga ang ugali ko, ewan ko.....nandiyan na yon sa first met-friends ko, sa kanila na kung ano ang isip nila.

Ako, i treasure n care the friend I meet-know....

thank you very much for your friendship, nance

hi Nance, it is nice to have gather in prayer, esp. with fellow Pinoys. I miss that... more importantly, i need the structure. Meron ditong nag-iinvite sa akin, I will most likely attend their meeting in June... as for your Ate Madeline, may Jesus' healing hands be upon her.
