Growing Together

I’m so blessed to be a part of other people’s lives by seeing them grow in their walk with God. As we say we are Christian, we must then believe that we are also commanded to make disciples just like what Jesus did with the chosen twelve. And to be a disciple and to make disciple is a privilege in our Christian walk. It must not be a burden for us but a joy as we experience God’s transforming power in our lives.

And being part of a discipleship group is never boring. It’s a great time of knowing the Lord deeper, knowing one another deeper, encouraging and praying for each other. It’s a venue where you can be yourself without fear of being judged. You get to travel together, do fun things together. And the other best part – there is always food! Haha!

I’m glad to be a part of a discipleship group. If you are not part of any, I hope you would start stepping out of your comfort zone and start reaching out. As our senior pastor said, (reason for not joining a discipleship group) if you think you don’t need help, then, be the one to give help. And I totally agree! Today, someone might need your encouragement, your blessing, your prayer. Don’t miss out on such a privilege!

The Valentine’s Project

My discipleship group ladies suggested to make chocolates with messages to give away to our colleagues on Valentine’s Day.

Just like any special day, these are times that we can share the love of God to others. So we grabbed this opportunity to spread out God’s love through our time and effort in making goodies.

It was a long week of chocolate making and baking. We started on the Sunday before Feb. 14. The girls had so much fun as their creativity were challenged especially in designing some of the round chocolates.

We made chocolate hearts in lollipop sticks and smaller chocolate hearts. We used three colors – white, red and dark chocolate for variety. It was very easy to make as we just had to melt the bars and then put them into molders and let it hardened inside the refrigerator.

We printed out Bible verses to be attached to the chocolates after they were packed. These are the final products of our project.

We didn’t finish everything in one day and so I had to continue making more for the rest of the week. It was a very fun experience and we really hoped that the people who received those goodies felt they were much loved by us and by God.
