Gianne and Elyssa will be starting school again this Monday and they are full of anticipation to see their old friends and to learn more things about nature, science, history, and whatever subjects their schools offer. Elyssa is going back to Ysabel Barnett Elementary School for third grade, while Gianne will be attending a different school: James L. Day Middle School.

Gianne is now in sixth grade. She is part of the DMS student council and beginning band. Elyssa, on the other hand, is expected to excel in third grade as her sister did at YBES.

We are equally excited for the kids’ new adventures and academic challenges this year. As always, we’ll give them our full support and enable ourselves as trained teachers; to help them with all their home works, to encourage them when tasks are difficult, and to make them understand that life is full of possibilities–good ones will always prevail over bad, if one is willing to give his or her best in each endeavor to achieve definite success.

We got a chance to visit my mom and sister in Orange County at the beginning of the week. The kids really enjoyed their time there with their grandma, especially when they went shopping.

Before we left on Tuesday, we dined at a Korean restaurant. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food, including the girls. I, for one, enjoyed the conversation because we seldom visit my relatives in O.C.

Well, school will soon begin and that’s the last trip we’ll make to O.C. for a while. The girls are ready to meet new friends and to see old ones again, but mostly, they just want to get back to school and learn a lot more.

2009 is here and we acknowledge all of God’s love, care, and salvation we experienced last year more than anything. He is truly our magnificent Provider and Savior.

As the new year begins, we brace ourselves for more challenges, especially with the current economic situation of our nation. Definitely, we are not alone in facing these financial and unemployment turmoils; it is a worldwide dilemma. God is on our side so we are not worried even if this world turns upside down.

Glory to God forever!

Scholastic Updates

First trimester of school has just concluded and of course, as anticipated, Gianne and Elyssa again did a wonderful job, as they accomplished in the past academic years. Gianne received perfect grades which earned her another spot at the honor roll list while Elyssa qualified for the GATE testing due to her superior performance in her grade level. She is way advanced in reading, writing, and mathematics, just like Gianne when she was still a second grader.

Needless to say, Ria and I are so proud of our beautiful and intellectual daughters. Thanks be to God for blessing us with two amazing children. To God be the glory forever. More updates and photos will be added soon.

As posted earlier last week, we traveled to Los Angeles to celebrate our international thanksgiving to God together with our brethren in the Church of God International. Needless to say, it was a huge success. We got there early enough to join the choir in the congregational singing and our seats have been actually reserved by the thanksgiving coordinators at the venue.

We’ve learned so much, of course, from our leaders concerning the true teachings of the Bible. This time, it was about the extent of the salvation performed by the Lord Jesus Christ. We’re so glad to have heard this lesson. Thanks be to God, indeed!

After the International Thanksgiving, we also visited Mama Fems (my mother) at Mission Viejo to see how she was doing. It was a joy to see her before we headed home to Temecula. Hopefully, we’ll get to visit her more often and our other kinsfolk to keep the family updated with everything that’s going on with the Liams. Until next posting, take care and God bless.

There are many reasons why we should offer sacrifice of thanksgiving to God. Mine is actually countless. I could never imagine existing without God in my life. He gives me the strength I need each day to carry on my tasks for the ministry and my family.

THE ACTS 17:28
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

No matter how difficult life is, God does not give up on me so why should I give up and quit serving Him. Sure, troubles and sufferings, even persecutions abound if you are truly a Christian and serving God the right way. But are these things really enough to make

you quit in your service to the Lord? No, because we are made strong by these trials. We can do it if we renew our faith and trust in the Lord and do His will.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Let’s continue to serve God and thank Him continually. Life everlasting and eternal joy await us once we’re done with the pain and sufferings of this world.

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

To God be the glory forever!
