Last Friday, we said goodbye (temporarily) to our SE2-J brother, Kuya Nhomer. He left for the airport while the worship service was still underway and having to skip lunch for an early check-in, it turned out his flight was delayed for another 17 hours, and so hunger started to kick in. He called one of our brethren if we could bring them (him and his friend) something edible, for obviously airport meals are astronomical. Then Kuya Jose phoned me while I was on my way to see off Kuya Neil, but he ended up coming with us back to SE2-J to fetch Kuya Jose and kuya Jeff, then we transited to SE2-B to get some leftover food to pack for Nhomer and his friend.
At the airport, we phoned him to come out to the parking lot where we were waiting. And sure enough when they get there, they can't wait digging in to that delicious sweet and sour fish fillet from SE2-B. Then after feasting on them, it's time for pictorial! Our appetite for picture taking seemed more insatiable than for food; who can blame us, that would be the last time (for now) to see our brother, so it's just appropriate that we should take more photos for remembrance.
"Although we have already said to you the previous night during our 'Palakasan' our encouragements and words of farewell, I want to say it again. Do not be afraid and do not lose hope, everything happens for a reason. God is still in control. Keep on running the race and don't stop. Love your family and continue to fix your eyes unto our Lord Jesus. God bless you my brother!"
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
