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!

Home Sweet Home

I am finally back with my family in California! It is great to see my daughters and my beautiful wife (Ria) once again. At the interim, I spend precious moments with my kids while they are still on summer vacation and Ria is not yet working full time. I can’t wait to get back to work myself but I have to wait for some paperwork from the Navy to make myself eligible for employment.

Anyways, it’s great to be back in the swing of things, particularly with the church activities in the MCOGI. To God be the glory forever.

Joey and Ria in New YorkMany things had happened since the last time we updated our blog. Ria and I went to New York for a chorale competition last December while Gianne and Elyssa had a short vacation with their Uncles Bill and Abet. We did not win in the group singing contest but we sure had an awesome time in the Big Apple. We took some nice photos and if time permits, we will post them here soon.

As for the latest happenings, I will be taking a brief assignment in Bahrain on 28 January. This is the third year in a row in which I will be embarking on an overseas tour. I like it because it gives me the opportunity to travel other parts of the world and still support my family. Communication is a lot better, too, because of the availability of modern technology such as wireless Internet connections and VOIP’s.

More updates to follow when I get to Bahrain. Thanks for reading. God bless us all always.

Jobze Coming Soon

Job Zechariah, our youngest son, is coming soon with God’s help. My wife Ria is scheduled to deliver our boy on September 26. We cannot wait to see Jobze and spend time with him. His sisters, Ghie and Elle, are equally excited to see their baby brother.

Jobze’s toys and clothes are ready; caring hearts and open arms, too. We await your coming, dear son. We love you very much.

Thank you, God, for providing us a very precious gift in Jobze. We promise to take care of him and love him with all our heart and soul.
