Happy New Year!

Rina and I are officially in 2010 (first report, so far so good). As I am writing this, most of our family and friends are still in 2009, stuck living in the past. That is the beauty of being GMT +8hours.

Celebrating New Years in the Philippines has been unlike any other past New Years. It seemed like everyone started to light off fireworks yesterday and continued with a steady crescendo the closer we came to the end of the year. It's been over 1 hour into 2010 and I can still hear a constant booming outside our windows. Also, our neighbor came by our house and gave us some lechon baboy (roasted pig) to help usher in the new year.

Rina and I just want to thank everyone for all of the prayers and support you gave us during 2009. We want to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2010, and we pray that God will bless you and your family throughout this coming year.

-Ptr. Matt & Rina-
