Conquer all.

561. text message from marichuy

when i first met marichuy, i instantly thanked the Lord. our last helper before her robbed us and told so many lies to cover up for her shortcomings. a few days after asking the previous one to leave, marichuy came and she was wearing a YFC shirt. my heart leaped and i felt that our battle cry "CONQUER ALL" indeed took place. more than just being a YFC, she's also a member of SIGA (serving in God's army-youth program for gawad kalinga). after one year of staying with us, marichuy left yesterday to finish high school.

Since I was still asleep when she left yesterday, I sent her a text this evening to thank her for all the good things she has done for my family. I told her that she was a great blessing to us, especially to my niece Alika, who loved her dearly. I told her to continue her service to the Lord and finish her studies so she could help her parents and be a good example to her siblings.

And she instantly replied: nagpapasalamat po ako kay God na nakilala ko kayo at naging bahagi ng buhay ko. salamat sa lahat po ng kabutihan na pinakita n'yo sa'kin. hinding hindi ko po kayo malilimutan. promise po mag-aaral ako mabuti... 

I know she will reach her dreams because I saw how she let God work in her life. Thank You, God, for marichuy!
