Three Days in the Philippines

First of all, I would like to extend my appreciation to all the prayers you've offered to my niece Kheila. The surgery was successful and she's now discharged from the hospital. Still, praying for her fully recovery. 

For this week I'm sharing with you the Baptismal of Liandrei Luis.

Father in Heaven,
when the Spirit came down upon Jesus  at His Baptism in the Jordan, You revealed Him as Your own Beloved Son. Keep me, Your child,  born of water and the Spirit, faithful to my calling.  May I, who share in Your Life as Your child through Baptism,  follow in Christ's path of service to people. Let me become one in His Sacrifice  and hear His Word with faith.  May I live as Your child,  following the example of Jesus. Amen.

I went home for few days to witness my niece's son Christening, that made me a young grandmother! I'm also a godmother, I preferred to call godmother :) I was so excited to see him, he's so cute!

Welcome to Christian World Liandrei Luis! I Love You!
Luis has a mixture of German-Filipino from his mother, Australian-Filipino from his father, and Spanish-Filipino from us... He's only 2 months here.
Although I missed my flight and that was forfeited, I bought another one way ticket that doubled the price of my original round-trip. It's a waste of money, but bonding with family is PRICELESS.

Welcome to our hometown, Angeles City, Philippines, I grew up in this house...

The day before Luis' Baptism, everybody's busy preparing for the event...

These are some of the give-aways for the sponsors and visitors...

All set up...

This is Luis on the day of his Baptism, he was asleep all along...

When the priest started to pour water on his head, he woke up and just looked around...

Pictorials with Family, and sponsors...

More captured moments with family from Lucena City...

At home at last, for the get-together... to find more about the
reception, just go to my other page Food: Cooking and Capturing!

The day after the celebration... time for me to go back in Taipei!
