Mabuhay ka Efren! May you be an inspiration to all of us in serving well and serving our fellow brothers and sisters. God bless you & your DTC volunteers!

Thank God! It's my Birthday!

Today is my 28th birthday! (I stated it already for you not to ask me how old I am.)

Thank you very much to all who remembered this special day when I was brought into this world. Whew! I've got a busy day answering text, call, e-mails and even facebook and friendster greetings as well as those who greet me thru ASMSI forum.

It feels great to learn that a lot of you (my friends and family members) remember me and throw every kind of messages and wishes for me. My only wish is that may all your wishes for me do come true. =).

I ended the day by attending mass at The Philippine Centre for St. Pio of Pietrelcina, Inc. in Libis, Quezon City and THANK the LORD for a busy and fruitful year that was.

It's great to know also that today is the feast day of one of the great pope in history, St. Leo the Great .

Thank you Lord! God Bless us all!
