"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."
:) This is just a short post to say I did change my age on purpose. My birthday was last week, I was just too sick to post anything. I am now 16 years of age, an age that no matter how old it looks is not all that old. I remember being 7 and thinking how old 16 would be, now I find myself there and feeling that it is not that old. :P Such is the lot of life.
This week has been busy, well the past FEW weeks have been busy. One of our friends, a young girl Jessica is going to be leaving St. Lucia at the end of this month. She wants to give her entire life to God by becoming a sister. She will be going to Jamaica to join Fr. Ho Lung's Missionaries of the Poor sisters. Needless to say I'm going to miss her. She has been such a blessing in the whole family. My little sisters adore her and scream her name when ever she comes over, covering her with hugs. She has also been a good witness to my sisters and I, especially the three of my sisters who are praying about Religious Life. Jessica has been trying to raise money to go, but its going to cost a lot. She told us a beautiful story that happened while she was at mass. She felt like God was asking her to do a special devotion to him, God says that when you say this devotion many graces and blessing will be poured out open the person. She agreed to say and did it, after mass a lady she did not know came up to her and told her that she had heard Jessica wanted to go to Jamaica. Then the lady asked her how much it would cost. Jessica told her and the lady then said she would pay for the entire ticket! We all praised God to hear about how he cares for the people he loves.
One of the other things that we are doing to help Jessica is with our Youth Group. We are putting on a production with little skits and music, we are going to ask people to donate money.
The other reason why this week has been busy is that my brother Peter was complaining of stomach pains. We soon guessed that it was his appendix. One of the sisters here, Sister Rosemary is studying to be a doctor. We asked her to come look at him and she confirmed our guess. My parents took him to the hospital where his appendix was removed. He spent two and a half days there before he was able to come home. He is now on the mend. We praise God that nothing bad happened and that the surgery went well.
God blesses his children in so many ways, He is so good to us.
