A Reliable Source of Web Reviews

Posted by Jeff | Saturday, August 30, 2008

A great resource of information is TalkReviews.co.uk. This is the lace where people get to review websites and let others know if they measure up or don’t. Who to recommend the site to, etc. It is a place where one can also check the statistics of a site. A reliable source of Web Site Reviews, to say the least.

Good News From Palawan

Posted by Jeff | Saturday, August 30, 2008

Recently, I received an email from Pastor Dave Quiocson, our partner in Puerto Princesa, Palawan and he said that they have begun a Student's Worship service at their church. We were so excited to hear about that news and even more excited because plans for returning on January of 2009 are right now being drawn up. We are looking forward to returning to the beautiful place of Puerto Princesa, Palawan and reaching out to more students with Pastor Dave and his church.

Seek And You Shall Find

A domain that can help anyone with People Search is WorldWidePeopleLocator.com. Anyone can search just by typing in the name in the given field found in their site and information like address, phone number, public records and others can be accessed. This is a very easy way of locating people and this site has a great system.

Below are photos taken during the second day at Puerto Princesa, Palawan. We went to two colleges namely, WPU and PPSAT.

Inexpensive Retail Therapy

Posted by Jeff | Friday, August 22, 2008

Addictions come in various forms. There are people who get hooked on drugs, others on alcohol. Other people get addicted to pornography. Still there are others who get addicted to things that don’t seem to be harmful, like eating, video games and even shopping.

It is actually not surprising how people go for what is known as “retail therapy” with every productive intention in mind and end up getting addicted. Some would even find themselves later having that compulsion to buy things that they don’t have a need for to begin with. That can be harmful to that person’s pocket.

But does shopping always have to hurt one’s pocket or credit? Well, if it is unplanned, it will. But if it is planned and if trends regarding seasonal sales are studied, one can save a lot of money with planned spending.

A tip is shopping during Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. You can actually suggest this to your friends for black friday 2008, which is November 28. You can also visit BlackFridayOnline.com and purchase Black Friday items online. This web site offers email alerts on new Black Friday ads posted.

I am actually thinking of suggesting this to my in-laws who are in Texas. As my wife is looking to buy an iPhone, she can probably do this through the site’s connection to Apple Store.

So if you are planning your spending this year, shop during Black Friday and do it online.

The Right Source of Power

Posted by Jeff | Tuesday, August 19, 2008

It is common for people to look good on the outside but inside feel so rotten. It is like a wooden house that looks new but really has a problem within its walls that it needs termite control services. Many youth who struggle with hidden addictions try to mask their problems with the image of being under control but if they are honest, they really feel that everything is beyond their control.

As we usually illustrate in our programs, in breaking through a problem, one needs the right support of friends and family but more than that, one needs the right source of power inside and that reliable power is none other than Christ. He can turn our impossibilities to possibilities and guide those who are confused. If you’ve tried other things and haven’t tried Jesus, why don’t you try Him this time?

Praise God!

Posted by Jeff | Tuesday, August 19, 2008

We praise God for the commitment to have an inner change made by 528 students from the four schools we went to in Palawan. We were able to share how to have inner change to 1,309 students from Sicsican National High School, PNS, Western Philippines University and PPSAT. We hope that our partner in Palawan will be able to follow up these students who made their decision.

Adjusting to College Students

Posted by Jeff | Friday, August 01, 2008

In our trip to Puerto Princesa City in Palawan on August 10-13, we will be presenting programs to both the high school level and college students. This will be our second time, after seven years, to present our program to college students. I remember presenting our program in 2001 to students from Rizal State University with Governor Ynares as the guest.

College students respond differently than high school students for many reasons. One is that they are more mature and think more critically. Even the subjects and the responsibilities they have in school are more challenging. It is so challenging that web sites like Custom-Writing.org are present because they have a market among these more mature students. Web sites like this offer thesis writing services, assistance with making a dissertation. They even provide the option for students to buy essay that is already written out for them – and college students do bite into this, a proof of how seriously more mature students take their requirements seriously.

It is a good thing that sites like Custom-Writing.org offer services that guarantee the satisfaction of their student clients and they give the student full control over their requirements. At least college students feel that they are taken seriously, too.

We hope that when we present to the two colleges lined up in our schedule on the 11th and 12th of August, our Breaking Point program team would be able to adjust well.
