“…the people living in darkness have seen a great light…” (Matthew 4:16)

June – My brother and sister-in-law losing their child to a miscarriage;
July – Daddy diagnosed with a serious liver condition;

September – Our family property in the province under litigation and in danger of being foreclosed;
November – Jeng suffering the first attack of her abdominal pains; her grandmother passing away;

It was a year of darkness for us, as a family…but it was also the year when the Light shone the brightest.
Truly, “…the people living in darkness have seen a great light…” (Matthew 4:16).
And so we enter 2009 in a blaze, shining brightly like never before.
To God be the glory!
Basking in God’s Light,
