Upgrading to your house electrical system

Today  modern  electronic equipment, such as televisions, surround sound systems and computers, are no longer  manufactured to handle old-fashioned electrical systems.  Appliances such as energy efficient refrigerators, washers, dryers and dishwashers need to have electrical supply  that is adequate  or with up-to-date wiring and proper connectivity. This is the main reason why there are lots of fire happening in our city today. Old houses built before  the 80’s  have an electrical system that’s  capable only of providing power to outlets  and are  completely inadequate for today's modern appliances and electronics. Electrical wiring breaks over time and became  fire  hazard.

Therefore, an evaluation of  your home's electrical wiring is necessary. You must take into account the age of your home , the age of the current wiring that is installed and total electrical load . You must also be able to foresee the type of appliances and electronic equipment that will be drawing power for future needs.  Start by getting an  GFI circuit breaker from ACTechWI.com , panel boards and electrical fictures.  You can Find the t5ho light at ACTechWI.com too.

If you are still doubtful with your electrical upgrade, better consult a license electrical engineer or set the services of professional electrical company to do the job for you.

Dream Wall 2013


Overseer of Worship Ministry

Getting all the records done for our annual reports is part of my work being the overseer of our worship ministry in our church. It’s also a way of assessing the condition of the musical instruments we are using. Some of them are quite old but we just need to take of it. But several needs replacements especially our two guitars. We decided to buy a new one after seeing a fender jaguar from musicians friend in the net. We believe this is also the right time to avail the no interest scheme given to us by a local music store here in our place as part of their promotion.

6 Reasons You Need a Small Group Ministry



Every ministry model has its weaknesses. Small groups are no different. They have their weaknesses, and I won’t pretend to hide behind them, but there are some benefits to small groups that cannot be ignored:

1 - Healthy Community…if your goal is to foster community in a church. We have already established that small groups provide discipleship opportunities for intentional leaders, but there are lots of other benefits that churches experience from a healthy small group community.

2 - Help Big Feel Small: It is no secret that there is one major fear people have in going to a large church: No one knows them! Small groups change that experience. Every Sunday my wife and I sit with a couple from our small group, and I see over 100 others that do the same each week (and that's just the people I know).

3 - Pastoral Care: Group ministry is the front line of pastoral care in the church. Group leaders and members are the first responders to crisis in a large congregation. There are many emergencies that occur in our church that I am the last to hear about, because our small groups have jumped in and handled the situation before word of it even made it to me.

4 - Evangelism: We have to stop thinking of small groups as "Bible Studies." We have groups at CCV that facilitate relationships that result in evangelism. New people have been attending our church as a direct result of the following affinity groups: softball, kids play group, volleyball, dog walking, tennis, scrap booking, and others.

5 – High-Priority Communication: Do you need to get the word out fast about something important in the church? Leverage the small group ministry network. On numerous occasions we have done this with an important change in the church, or even with communication for a capital campaign to build a new facility on our campus.

6 - Volunteer Network: I can't count how many times we have utilized our small group ministry to rally the troops to get a job done. We would not have been able to staff our kids program when we experimented with our Saturday night service if it weren't for entire small groups volunteering to serve on Saturday nights together.

I guess I look at this whole situation kind of differently. Small groups will continue to exist in all of our communities—with or without churches. I just hope that churches pay more attention to group ministry, because without this vital ministry, churches are the ones at risk, not groups.

Engineering Terms

I’m not so familiar with many technical terms especially those used in industrial works. My high school classmates that would be six of them are now working in one of the biggest manufacturer of dairy products here in our place. They were all experts in the field of work they’ve chosen. Two of them were certified Electrical engineers, one is an Electronic engineer and the other two were Mechanical engineers. On one school reunion, they were discussing things about their work and one of them mentioned about fixturing shims and its relations to their work. I am so happy for all of them as they all were successful in their chosen careers. Maybe next time, I would also ask them to explain some technical terms which until today, I cannot still explain.

Got a roof over your head?


Be Thankful for that!

Don't yo know that , One billion people live in slums?  That's almost one-sixth of the world’s population. Of this total, 640 million children live without adequate shelter, some  live in cardboard boxes, tin-roofed shacks, one-room mud huts a nd  crowded tenements. It’s been estimated that 1.4 billion people will live in slums by 2020. In the  United States, between 2.3 to 2.5 million people are classified as homeless. In our country which is considered a yet developing one, 15%  are considered homeless.

Be  thank that  you have a roof over your head!

Post Birthday Greetings

I saw this picture on facebook today. Thank you dear little sister Hannah Rosal for the effort in making the collage. Three days ago was my birthday. Me and my wife decided not to have a birthday party but just an intimate dinner with immediate family and close. I was surprised that there were young people who went to the house bring foods and gifts. Thank you so much for the birthday surprise!!
