.. because He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor…

Luke 4:18

I live in Baguio. And I must say that I love it. I go out to the porch early mornings, watch the sun rise as the fog slowly lifts up from the skies. And I thank God for the cold when I think about how the heat in Manila gives me a headache and I have to hang out in malls and other places that I know are air-conditioned. Because it is intrinsic in man to seek comfort.

Sometimes people visit Matthew and myself at our home to seek our counsel. And it can get uncomfortable because we’re losing out on rest or more time together. And it is intrinsic in man to seek comfort. But we choose to listen, because someone needs our love. Sometimes people approach us who are in dire need. And even if our allowance falls short of our budget at times, we try to share whatever little we have. We meet these challenges every day. But how can we not be generous, when we have a God who was first generous to us?

Indeed, it is intrinsic in man to seek comfort. But it is also intrinsic to give comfort, for we were born to serve.

  1. hi jojang and matt, i read your blog and I must say that you two are chosen to be together, to serve God and to be of service to others who are desperately seeking for God spiritually. Many of us may not be given that chance so I must say that you too are blessed besides being lucky to have found each other as partners in Christ. May God bless you with good health,continued happiness, love and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Continue your desire to spread the good news of our Lord, in Jesus name.. God bless you always. Love, emy del rosario
