Dear Pastor,

Perhaps you may not recall all the little things you did that meant so much to us. Your gentleness, faithfulness, goodness, kindness, faith, and love are evident to us. Although you are far away, you seem so close because your prayers always connect us and you are always just one call away.

We are grateful to you for being a good reminder and testament to God's grace and goodness. We appreciate your advice and rebukes that always lead us to the Lord. You have been doing a lot of good things behind the scenes and the limelight, things that are unseen by many but we know that the Lord sees them all. Perhaps, you may have some struggles behind closed doors, but we hope that you always remember that we are with you fighting in prayers.

You are the kind of person who would open the door so we can enter our dream, and I am one of them. Thank you for making this site a home for everyone, for purchasing the books and giving them to others, for reading my blogs and providing corrections, for inviting me to speak even when I'm starting and stuttering, for making us feel loved and pursued on our birthdays, and for sending gifts and flowers. Thank you for traveling long hours just to visit us and praying for us to find a godly spouse. Thank you for joining us in knocking and pleading at heaven's gate when we have struggles and for celebrating with us during our breakthroughs. Thank you for opening your home and making us feel rested from our struggles in life, for serving and loving others without expecting anything in return. Truly, you are a good shepherd to your sheep.

I am blessed and favored to know you Pastor Laxa Jr.

You are one of a kind pastor Titus, and we love and appreciate you for always choosing Jesus's ways, and we always see Jesus in your life. May the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace. Just like Paul's prayer and thanksgiving, "For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.  keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,  and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,  far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way." Ephesians 1: 15-23

From our first mission trip last 2018 up to this date, you never change.

Thank you pastor! Blessed birthday! Keep the fire burning for His glory and by His grace may you fulfill His purpose for you as a minister to hundreds and thousands of people.

When you’re struggling with how you look

Remember beauty is fleeting; vigor and vitality are fading. Tomorrow you will be missing one tooth, you'll have sagging skin, and your perfect posture will be crooked.

God has a Purpose

It makes sense now, I don't figure it all but I completely trust God in my life.

God is a great friend

When I realized that God is also my friend, I started to pour out everything to Him even those things that I thought were unnecessary hence God wants to be involved in all aspects of our lives.

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
