What an amazing day! One of the greatest days of my life was the day I got Baptized. If there was a competition for best day of my life it would be a toss up between my wedding day and the day I was Baptized. I am sure when my husband and I have children that day will take the win. This special day however was not my Baptism day; it was my parents and husbands Baptism day! The three people I love most in this world! And the fact that they all want to make a public declaration that they are followers of Jesus is incredible! I made the decision three months ago in the Philippines to be Baptized. You can watch our Baptisms in the videos below.
We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. -Romans 6:4

What is Baptism?
Simply put, a public declaration that you are a follower of Jesus. Baptism is one of the ways God calls us to follow him.
Would you like to be Baptized?

I hope everyone is having a great week! As you may know God has blessed me with the privilege of working with Campus Crusade for Christ (changing its name to CRU in 2012 in the U.S.) I am a part of the Student Venture Ministry, dedicated to teenagers and giving them the opportunity to say ‘yes’ to Jesus in their lives. We have the same goal as the college campus ministry of CRU, to have everyone student who graduates have the opportunity to not only hear the Gospel but also have the opportunity to invite Jesus into their hearts. We share the Gospel but we also disciple and equip the teens with the tools needed so that they can be lights to their family and friends wherever God brings them in life, whether it is with in the clique at school, sports team/club and or in their sorority/fraternity when they go off to college.
This weekend (Oct 8-9) Student Venture is putting a huge Prayer Conference in Houston, Texas for Student Venture teens. I would normally be traveling to this but I have my first speech coming up on October 21st here and I need to focus and prepare, which I will give you more details of in a later time. For now, I wanted to share with you about the event this weekend, It’s Time. Please check out the flier below!
We are also asking for prayer support. We are asking staff, teens, family and friends to pray for the success of God’s work during he conference – the goal is to have a person in prayer over the conference at all times while the event is actually happening! The power of prayer is amazing! You may sign up to pray here! http://bit.ly/qdbqFo
