Every year thousands of people will walk towards Manaoag, Pangasinan for the annual pilgrimage. These people will walk very early in the morning and walk many miles under the blistering summer heat just to reach their destination. They walk in groups that would somehow ease their weariness.

Every year we would see them walk and just pass by. But last year we’ve had enough of watching them pass by, we did something different. PASA LOVE was still in the early stages at that time and we simply grab any opportunity that would allow us to serve. It was Jonathan, one of the pastors in the church who suggested that we serve coffee and cold drinks.

We’re doing it again this year only this time bigger. We’re going to cook 4 large pots of arrozcaldo that could serve 800 people. There would still be the brewed coffee. The cold water will always be there since these pilgrims would need to refill their water containers. We’re going to set up some tables and chairs should they want to sit and rest for a moment. And we would open our rest rooms for them.

Our ad for this PASA LOVE

Matthew 5:46-47, “If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?”

If we love the same people how can that be love? When faced with people who are different from us whether in terms of faith or politics, we’ll choose to love. After all, Jesus loved unconditionally. PASA LOVE.

Loving withOUT BIAS or BOUNDARIES.

The seventh album of Hillsong Church (live praise and worship series) was entitled Touching Heaven Changing Earth. My personal favorites are The Potters Hand,  Holy Spirit Rain Down and My Greatest Love Is You. There is something in the album that changes the earth, it’s Heaven and specifically, Touching Heaven. For people like us who believe in heaven, we can say boldly that it’s not just a concept of place or state of being. It’s home.

Touching heaven changes the earth because of its Perfect feature. All in there is ZERO: pain, hardship, illness, violence and the likes. Instead, there is FULLNESS: peace, love, joy and comfort. Bringing heaven directly to earth is the mission of Jesus which was later on entrusted to His apostles and eventually fruiting out disciples and disciple-making bodies through the power of the Holy Spirit. It wasn’t simple for them because following our Lord is not a popular decision in fact it’s the most debated.

Do you still remember Blessing the Children of Garbage Collectors? It was successful because you let them experienced what heaven is all about.

Do you also remember The Outpouring of Blessings? The blessings were overwhelming because you made it possible. Yes, you! Readers and bloggers who made way and created great impact to their lives.

It’s PASALOVE!

This year’s PASALOVE opening salvo will embrace the embattled Women of Haven headed by a young leader, Nikka. Haven for Women is a place where victims of abuse finds home and PASALOVE: REACHING HAVEN will administer by reaching out on March 5, 2011.

 

Heaven and HAVEN for WOMEN is all about HOME. Together, we can make a difference. Touching Haven, Changing Lives.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10

 

Rumaragasang pagpapala ang aking naranasan
Di ako magtataka kung ba’t sa akin napupunta
Mula Hilaga, Kanluran, Timog, Silangan
Saan man magpunta
Rumaragasang pagpapala ay aking nakamtan na

 

Totoo ang kantang Rumaragasang Pagpapala sa buhay ng bawat isa, lalo na sa mga taong nagbabahagi ng kanilang pagpapala sa iba. Napakabuti ng Diyos sapagkat tunay ngang wala siyang katulad at kanyang tinugon ang dalangin ng Servolution Team – Pangasinan para sa kanilang Blessing the Children of Garbage Collectors.

Naalala ko parati ang turo ng aking guro sa misyon na, freely we receive, freely we give. Nakakatuwang isipin na ang mga taong nasa likod ng programang ito ay bukas lagi ang kanilang mga palad sa pagtulong at gumawa ng radical change. Sabi nga ng isang sikat na mangangaral, if we want to attract God, start a radical move.

At ang lubos na nakakamangha ay ang kabutihan ng Diyos sa mga taong nag-abot ng kanilang mga tulong na hindi na nagpapabanggit ng pangalan. Sila ang mga taong naniniwala na kung ano ang alam ng kanang kamay ay hindi na kailangan pang malaman ng kaliwang kamay.

Kapag ang Panginoon ang nagpaulan ng pagpapala paniguradong mauubusan tayo ng paglalagyan dahil ito ay rumaragasa mula  Hilaga, Silangan, Timog at Kanluran.

Isang mapagpalang Pasko po sa bawat isa at maraming salamat sa lahat ng mga tumulong para sa dakilang adhikain ng Diyos na magbahagi ng pagmamahal in and out of season.

Personal:

I would like to thank PEBA, Inc. (Pinoy Expats/OFW Blog Awards) 2010 for making history in honoring the OFW’s workmanship through their blog and photo entries. The representation of OFWs thru PEBA is a great advocacy knowing that we Filipinos, both in and out of the country are world class! Salute to all OFWs, PEBA Team and the Filipino People who shared the vision of a better Philippines! (FB Status)

Salamat Waling Lee Mi at sa lahat ng sumuporta sa Perfect Picture.



In celebration for their upcoming First Year of Pasa Love Ministry, The Full Life Baptist Fellowship (Tapuac District, Dagupan City, Pangasinan, Philippines) launched Blessing the Children of Garbage Collectors: The Pasa Love Christmas Event – 21 December 2010. No, this breakthrough event is not a seasonal event just because it’s Christmas time. They did it all year round.

They’ve conquered the hospitals.

They showed God’s love on the streets – church no gates and walls.

They shared it with the children and nearby messed up communities with Project Pearls.

They helped after the Philippine General Elections, Nursing Board Exam (North Zone), Pangasinan’s Bangus Festival; touched the lives of  high school students.

Above all, they championed kids as the next praying and triumphant generation.

This is not their works. It is their way of telling each of us what the LOVE of our LORD is all about. This is not about them. This is all about God’s love; on how you and I can make a difference and touch other’s lives; your suffering neighbor, your unloved parents or siblings, your maltreated friend. Yes, we can lead by example and be a model of goodness and righteousness and shed a light. Yes, we can do all these things by sharing. We can’t change everybody but we can be a vessel of change, a willing and empty vessel.

In full humility, The Pasa Love Christmas Event calls on your kind hearts to be a blessing to these children of garbage collectors.

Each of us has its own cause. This is an open invitation to those who are willing – to all. Let me leave you their battle cry: Serving God, Serving People, Missional!

To God be all the glory!
