But our drama team are talented and in minutes we have practice our version of carol of bells...any idea?? From the youtube of course..ahhehehe. Hope you love it. :)

This Was Your Life Christian Track

I have this track when I was in college, I remembered once I shared it to my classmate and laugh at it. I do not remember who gave it to me but I like to share it anyway.

UMYF National Contest First Place Poem

This is a repost of the winning entry by Gerald Galindez, a poem about the realities, emotions of Christian youths. It garnered the first place in the first UMYF national poem contest.

Quiescent no more

Harvest first the master says
Famine stricken throat for days
Brought the end of farmers toil
Again United with his soil

Comfort of a market shade
Home of all the beggars frayed
Talking wounds on fleshless knees
That is what they meant of peace

Collecting broken dreams, a house
Of Harlots forced to work with sows
Make-up hides the swollen ducts
Client undresses and locks

Bustling cars of justice men
Does his job from ten to ten
Meets the youth to sell his drugs
remits to political rugs

Precious vault the greedy owns
Money in his blood and bones
Hunger knocks his shiny Ford
Mocks away the poor ignored

Peaceful yet it harrows you
If justice hides what should you do
For a youth that serves to God
Must you share our Jesus' blood

Blood of love and peace accords
Christian soldiers drop your swords
Wear the cleanest conscience robe
Start with you before the globe

Volunteers in Mission in SPMC, Kidapawan

Nine Volunteers in Mission from Chapelwood UMC, Houston, Texas arrived lately to repair the leaking roof of the SPMC administration building. They are Dave Luther, Chris Archer, Susan Patterson, Carleen Woods, Vicki Roussel, CJ Yeoman, Early Denison, Bob Lassalle & Doug Cheves. The American volunteers work for a week in the school changing the roof tiles and installing a wire fence around the school. They are happy and eager to share their knowledge and expertise in the work. After all, they have a background ranging from carpentry to administration, they also gave some woodwork toys to the children living near the school compound assisted by student volunteers. We are hoping that in the near future this teamwork between the school and the church wherever here or in abroad will be strengthened and revitalized.
