Pray to Over Flow

Every year the Christian Church where I belong have this event called Prayer and Fasting week. We usually have it at the beginning of the year and the middle of the year. Now we are having it this June 24-27 2015.  Fasting and Prayer is spending time to grow on our intimacy with the Lord so that we will truly overflow as a blessing to others.

Prayer should be a delight not a duty, it should be a privilege not a protocol;  a relationship not a ritual, When we have the right theology of who God is and who we are, prayer will be a joy because we believe that God is our Father.

Peter Tan-Chi
Ccf Senior Pastor

We fast not just to stop doing things, but we fast so that we can do things that will impact our heart. Christians can do things not by will power but by God's power.

Randy Pope

There are different ways of fasting normal fast, partial fast, juice fast and object fast. A lot of people do the object fast by not opening their social media account for a week, I wanted to do that but that's the only communication I have with my husband, so I am doing the partial fast. If you have anyun prayer request that you want me to pray for just leave a comment and I will lift you up in prayer. God bless you!

Diabetamil New Product Endorser Mr. Gary V.


Nothing can stop Mr. Pure Energy Gary V. from enjoying life and trying new adventure. He is the new product endorser of Diabetamil since He has diabetes since he was a child. To my curiosity I asked him who among their children have acquired the same sickness? And so far he told them that Paolo and Gab sometimes sometimes experienced hypoglycemia. It was and awareness for me the difference and risk of hyperglycemia.

The International Diabetes Foundation has reported that the Philippines has been named as one the world's emerging diabetes hotspot having treated 3.2 million cases in 2014 alone.

In its simplest terms, diabetes is a lifelong chronic condition that affects the body's ability to use the energy found in food. For non-diabetics, the sugar and carbohydrates in the food are transformed into glucose, which the cells absorb in the bloodstream with the help of a hormone called insulin. Diabetics do not produce or do not have enough insulin in the body and therefore cannot absorb the glucose, which creates a build-up in the blood and often leads to more serious illnesses.

As this is seen as a very serious disease, there is a mindset that people living with diabetes lead very restricted lives. This is a misconception that Gary Valenciano is very familiar with, but this has not discouraged him from becoming the success that he is.

Gary was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was just fourteen years old and was told by his doctors that he would not live past the age of forty. Thirty-seven years after his diagnosis and more than 90,000 insulin injections later, Gary has never been more active in both his personal and professional life.  The artist, performer, athlete and family man's strong resolve to constantly defeat the disease comes after his worst hypoglycemic attack in 2005, which almost claimed his life.  Ten years after that fateful event, he is now complication free and has been called a living miracle by many doctors.

How does he do it? His outlook is one of great resolve. "I'm living a life with diabetes but I won't let it stop me", he has said in a 2009 interview with Ces Drilon.  He believes that with proper management of the disease, it allows him to live a rich, dynamic life. This multi-awarded performer shares that religiously doing exercise, careful observation of his blood sugar, taking the right medication and having a proper diet helps him in his miraculous journey in dealing with diabetes.

A diet that includes DiabetaMil is one that he lives by. This reduced calorie, sugar-free Cereal and Non-Cereal drink contain vitamins, minerals and protein specially formulated for people with diabetes. It is enriched with Chromium Picolinate and Dietary Fiber, is high in Calcium and has a Low Glycemic (GI) Value.

 The mineral Chromium Picolinate found in the drink can aid in both glucose and insulin metabolism by breaking down the fats, protein and cholesterol.  Dr. Lanny Lestiani, a Medical Nutritionist at the University of Indonesia, testifies that ‘chromium showed its potential in improving insulin sensitivity; DiabetaMil enriched with chromium (250 mcg per serving) may be beneficial for diabetics to improve their glycemic control'. In addition, this nutritional drink also fulfills the Codex requirement as source of calcium, which can be beneficial in optimizing glucose metabolism.

The high fiber oat content in DiabetaMil Chocolate & Vanilla drinks, help lower bad cholesterol. It also contains a glycemic index (GI) value level of 30.5 which helps reduce overall blood glucose level.

Several nutritionists have confirmed the benefits of including DiabetaMil to a diabetic's daily balanced diet. "The usage of non-sugar sweetening agents (sucralose and acesulfame K) to DiabetaMil may help diabetics reduce their blood glucose level", attests Dr. Widjaja Lukito, an associate professor of the Nutrition Department at the University of Indonesia. Because DiabetaMil is a reduced calorie meal substitute, it ‘can help diabetics control their body weight', endorses Ayu Dwi Irianti, a Nutrition Coordinator at one of Jakarta's premier hospitals.

Aside from the multi-flavored nutritional drinks, DiabetaMil also offers low-calorie and sugar-free cookies suitable for diabetics. Snacks have an important role in the daily diet as they help keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible.

DiabetaMil has a delicious lineup of cereal (Vanilla and Chocolate flavors) & non-cereal drinks (Moccachinno flavor) and cookies (Nutty Chocolate and Vanilla Dried Fruit flavors) that allows one a healthy and nutritious meal without sacrificing its taste. Just like Gary, DiabetaMil believes that there are DiabetaMillion ways to enjoy life.  So don't let diabetes stop you from enjoying life!

DiabetaMil is available in all leading supermarkets, groceries and drugstores.

Journey of an Ofw Family during Father’s Day

Every year we celebrate Father’s Day without my husband because his job is outside the country. I always feel emotional if I see complete family celebrating this special occasion. Even with Christmas and New Year, there are times that his vacation doesn't fall on those months.

Missing him on this events made us do some activities that will all of us happy.
Yesterday we started by attending the worship service. Putting God first in our life. There was a board about Father's day and my daughter enjoyed it by taking photos.

We had dinner at our favorite place in Marikina Lilac Street. Most of the resto are full when we went so we choose a resto that has less people so we can eat at seat comfortably. Brothers Breakfast serves breakfast all day with a good taste and reasonable price.

We ended the day by having a cup of cappuccino and a shot of milk at Cookie Mug still at Lilac st.

We will always treasure the things that you'be done for us by working hard in a foreign land in a cruise ship. May the Lord continue to bless the work of your hands and be a blessing to other's too. We love you..
