Day 107 - Mountain Climbing Faith


For the past months life events knocked us down many times. Again and again and again. Our situation is draining our strength, our finances, our well being. Just when we are going to stand up we will be hit by a stronger blow again.

Today is the day after christmas. We were able to reach the hospital easily and just on time. My wife and I are very positive that Faith is doing well this time. Faith did not disappoint us and we were surprised that her feeding has been resumed and her oral supplements has been continued. Faith looks good and more active today. Her color is better and her face brightened up. Nurse angie is taking care of her and she was so patient to pacify and comfort her every time she cries. I prayed for Faith and encourage her to keep on fighting and to be strong.

I immediately called my dear wife roan to see our daughter who is wide awake after I prayed for her. My wife was so happy to see Faith.

Faith had a special visitor today, her ninang amanda and ninong polo drop by to visit her and to share their blessings to other NICU parents. They are our bestfriends and the parents of our dear joaquin rocco who is now with our creator.

Amanda and polo said that Faith's skin is smooth and fair just like her mother. They were happy to see Faith for the very first time.

During our late lunch my wife told me that she felt nervous all of the sudden and she wanted to go back to the hospital immediately.

Afternoon visiting hours was moved to 4:30 just in time for us to prepare ourselves. I went in first and Faith was sleeping soundly. Nurse lotie told me that Faith was crying so hard a few minutes before we came in. She said maybe Faith knew that we were coming so she behaved herself so her mother will not worry during her visit. I prayed for Faith again and cheered her up.

Roan went in next and I can hear her sang a lullaby from outside the isolation room. She prayed for Faith and told her "Mommy and daddy loves you so much anak" ; "keep strong", "you can do it". She encouraged her to be strong and keep on fighting.

While she was there the doctor came in and told her that Faith is more active today and she indeed gained weight from 1.17kg to 1.20kg even though she had growth on her blood. Roan asked if the official result has been released and the doctor confirmed. The doctor told roan that Faith had Serratia marcescens. My wife asked again with disbelief and it was indeed a serratia. Roan went backed to me crying and she said that Faith had serratia.

I went to the doctor and she confirmed. I had to look at the official result and my knees went weak and my heart is pounding in fear. The doctor said it is hospital acquired infection and she said that one of the first two antibiotic they started is sensitive to that kind of infection and they will change one of her antibiotic to match the current infection. Faith is the third patient who had serratia in the NICU this year. They ordered another CBC and if her platelet is good they will proceed cerebrospinal fluid analysis to further check if the infection already reached the brain. I signed the consent for the procedure and possible transfusion of platelet.

I immediately went back to comfort Roan who is crying so hard that time. She feared that Faith will not make it because the same infection hit our dear joaquin rocco two months ago. She is so scared, I've never seen my wife that scared and I let her cry and verbalized her emotions. I told her that God is with us and He is way bigger than our current situation. I assured her that God will heal Faith and God is under control. I embraced her so tight and I told her that Faith can make it because God is with her.

I went back to Faith and I lay my hand on her. I prayed for her and I cast out the infection in her body. The bible said that all names will bow down in the name of Jesus and serratia is just a name and it will bow down to God. I declare Faith's future to be bright, strong, alive and normal. I claimed her healing and I asked the holy spirit to cover Faith with the blood of Jesus. I prayed very hard and I entrusted Faith to God and may His will be done. After praying I felt peace in my heart. Yes I worry and I felt scared but knowing that God will fight for Faith gives me assurance that everything is aligned with Gods good,pleasing and perfect will for Faith.

Serratia is a rare infection and hard to treat but nothing is impossible with God, and the God that we are serving is way bigger, powerful and mightier than any other disease. We hold on to God's promise and we know that he will save our daughter Faith from this infection.

I didn't asked God why but I asked Him to help us understand what is he trying to tell us.

When life knocked us down my wife and I would hold each others hand and stand up again and again when we can't God is always there to lift us up again and again.

If some mountains cannot be move then we will climb it and we will overcome it because God is with us.

May I ask everyone to stand with us in prayer for the healing of our dear Faith Catherine. More than anything we need your time to pray for us.

Day 52 - Breaking the barrier

Today is a wonderful day. We woke up very excited to see Faith it is the day that the doctors allowed my wife to do Kangaroo mother care.

On the way to the hospital my wife is so excited and asking me what to do during KMC. She would like to do it perfectly. I can see the excitement in her eyes.

When we reached the hospital I went to Faith first. She was on prone position and sleeping peacefully. I prayed for her and thanked the Lord for taking care of our little princess. Faith is just completing her last antibiotic. Her milk feeding is now on 2ml per hour on continuous gavage. The oxygen saturation is also maintained and her oxygen supply has been decreased to 23%. Faith's complexion is perfect her skin is also moist. All of her vital signs are stable. Her bowel movement and urine output are normal. I am very happy to see Faith. I went to roan so she could maximize the time with Faith.

Roan changed her clothes and washed her hands thoroughly. I can sense that she is nervous and very excited at the same time. This is the day that she was waiting for; fruit of the countless nights that she prayed and cried to God.

When Faith is still inside of her mother's womb, my wife shed her tears the first time she felt Faith moves. It was a magical moment for both of us.

Roan walked towards Faith slowly. I am so excited and my heart is pumping so fast because of joy.

Nurses assisted Roan to sit comfortably. They prepared the IV lines and her oxygen line properly. The nurses are excited too since they witnessed the journey of Faith since day 1.

This is Roan's post:

" Such a wonderful day blessed by God, today the walls of the incubator did not separate us from Faith, today we were able to touch her without the gloves. Today I got to hold our brave warrior princess Faith Catherine. Today I felt her skin on mine, felt her body moves, heard her cute sneeze and her tiny cry for the first time. Truly an amazing moment for our family."


Nurse Kath allowed me to join my wife and daughter. When I saw my daughter sleeping on her mother's chest peacefully my heart can not contain the happiness I have. I looked at her closely and I touched her hands without the gloves. It was wonderful, words are not enough to describe my joy. It is as if I'm holding God's promise in flesh. This is the first moment that we prayed as a family. We thanked the Lord for everything that he has done for us. God blessed me with a wonderful wife and He also blessed me with a miracle baby.

If I could freeze a moment in my life I would choose this moment. Me, my wife and my daughter all together sharing the love of God.

On our way home my wife shared her experience with Faith. She said that Faith would hold on to her chest with firm grasp and she would move her body from time to time. Roan said it is the same movement she felt when she is still in her womb. Roan was crying while she recalls the magical moment; "nakarga ko yung anak ko, nandito sya sa dibdib ko kanina. Sabi ko si mommy ito anak mahal na mahal kita" ("I was able to carry my child right her on my chest. I told her that I am her mommy and I love you so much"). Roan was able to sing lullabies for Faith.

I remembered when we lost our son Isaac due to miscarriage two years ago. My wife cried a lot and she repeatedly said that she wasn't given a chance to even hear the cry of her child and she was not able to even hold or touch Isaac.

Today Roan heard our baby cried and she was able to feel her movement while carrying Faith in her arms. Today we celebrate Gods power over our life.

Today God replaced all of our pain with all of his love.

All Glory and Praise to you oh Lord Jesus Christ.

Day 50 - God is Faithful

God is truly amazing.

It was a stormy day today. Heavy rain and gusty winds welcomed us as we traveled to visit Faith. The bad weather cannot hinder our desire and eagerness to see our warrior princess. My wife is not feeling well today but she insisted to go with me.

Roan was the first one to visit Faith. She said that the nurses welcomed her with smiles and they said we have a surprise for you. As my wife walked towards Faith's isolette she took a closer look. Faith is extubated for the second time. Roan cried and the tears of joy fell from her eyes. It was an outburst of joy and an answered prayer. Remember how scared she was yesterday when Faith stoped to breathing and now God showed her that Faith is breathing on her own. My wife is so happy and she called me to see Faith immediately. She said "Faith has a surprise for you".

I walked towards Faith with bigger steps and smile on my face. I knew that there is something amazing waiting for me. The nurses are smiling at me and I saw my daughter so beautiful without the endotracheal tube. She was extubated the second time and she seems to be more comfortable now. She is on CPAP and oxygen support. Faith is initiating the breathing and the machine will detect if she stop and it will initiate breathing for her. It is a milestone for every preemie, it is a milestone for Faith. Without the machine Faith can move freely, her risk for ventilator associated pneumonia has been eliminated and she it will help her breath on her own.


While I was there nurse mylene and joseph weigh Faith. I was happy to see that she gained weight and she is now 585 grams. Another blessing from God. Her milk is feeding is continuous and with only one antibiotic left. Little by little Faith is making a progress.

Faith is so cute with her purple bonnet. Her face is so angelic. With her current progress and if she can tolerate the breathing we will be able to carry her and have a skin to skin interaction with her soon. We are so excited for that moment to happen.

I prayed for Faith and we thank the Lord for His faithfulness and His immeasurable love for Faith and for us. God is so amazing, He did all the work while we are just waiting and trusting Him. He said "be still and know that I am God". We submit to Him and surrendered everything to Him.

We received some messages from a stranger. One of them offered financial help, he said he doesn't have much but He would like to help. One of them shared our story to a Filipino group in Australia and she is getting pledges from concerned individuals. Remember my story yesterday when I was asked to make a partial payment and I said God will provide. Guess what, God is sending help. He is sending His provision through the life of this people. Many people are sending their help to my bank account anonymously.

Thank you so much for sending your help and for being part of God's greater plan. God is sustaining Faith's health and He is also sustaining all her needs.

My heart is overwhelmed by the goodness and faithfulness of the Lord. You are amazing God! We are in awe of you. You do miracle so great and we are thankful for your grace and mercy.

We went home with an overflowing joy. We cannot stop talking how beautiful our daughter is. My wife is so excited for the day that she could embrace our daughter. We would like to thank you for taking time to read and share our stories. I know that you have prayers to God and maybe you are waiting for your miracle to happen. I assure you that God knows the desires of your heart and He is able and more than willing to provide it to you. Miracle is great but let us not end there, we must pursue the provider of miracle which is our Lord Jesus Christ. He is just there waiting for you and waiting to be noticed by you. He loves you so much.

God bless you.

DAY 28 - The Lord is our Refuge



Monday, first day of the week and we woke up early because we are so excited to see Faith a day after her procedure. The three hours of sleep did not hinder our excitement to see our daughter.

We started our day with a prayer for Faith's healing and fast recovery. When we arrived Faith is wide awake. She responded to her mother's voice by waving her hands and kicking her feet up high. She nods and smiled a lot making her mother very happy.

Her feeding was resumed and her umbilical catheter has been removed. She is now enjoying her new IV line and she is playing with it.

Her color is reddish pink with good oxygen saturation.

The kind nurses positioned her side to side every 2 hours. Dr. Masangkay visited her as well and she was happy with the progress. Her 3 antibiotics is still ongoing. The mech-vent setting has been decreased too.

We are praying that she will be extubated soon and she can breath independently without the help of the machine.

Day by day we can see how God moves in Faith's life and condition. We witness the power of God's healing and power. He also send people to help us and be a channel of blessings.

We would like to thank the people from Abu Dhabi who shared their blessing even if they didn't know us personally. Your love gifts will help Faith in her fight. Thank you for being a real life HERO for Faith. We may not be able to thank you personally but our deepest gratitude is overwhelming. God knows the things you have done in secret and He will greatly reward you for your kindness and generosity.

We went back for the afternoon visiting hours. We prayed for her and we encouraged her to keep strong and brave. We always tell her how much we love her and how much Jesus loves her. We even mention to her the names of her Heroes who prayed and supported her journey.

Today is also her 4th week since she was born. The Lord is our refuge. We prayed and cried so hard to God. Many times we are worried and afraid but the Lord always comfort us and secure us with His promises.

We went home with happy hearts. We are secured that Jesus love us and He love Faith so much.

Sometimes you may feel that God has abandoned you or doesn't love you. Things that happened in the past that looses your confidence in Him. Prayers may not be answered the way you wish it to happen. We want to share the word of God to you from Romans 8:38-39,

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jesus love you!

DAY 26 - Trust in the Lord


Early morning we received a message that we need to go to the hospital to sign a consent for

Faith's procedure. We rushed to the hospital for the consent and of course we are excited to see our little angel.

On our way to the hospital we were praying and hoping that the procedure will be successful. My wife said that our daughter is so young to experience pain and difficulties in her early stage of life. I answered and said that God is with Faith every single moment of her life and we must trust his ways.

When we reached the hospital the procedure was explained to us and then I signed the consent. We wish to see Faith but it is not visiting hours yet so we needed to come back at 4 in the afternoon.

We had a quick lunch at the hospital canteen. Even without the fancy ambiance and instagramable food presentation we did enjoyed our date. Even in the midst of trial and stress I still need to make my wife happy. Yes we are focusing on Faith's condition but I still need to take care of my wife. I made her laugh, encourage her, comfort her and love her.

While waiting for the visiting hours I read a christian book about healing. God is able and willing to heal us. He is jehovah rapha or the Lord who heals. Jesus won it all and He is mightier than any disease. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. We can command the disease to be gone in Jesus name. I learned a lot and I am excited to apply those learning to my daughter.

When we came back to NICU I was able to talk to her doctor and she said that they need to reschedule PICC line insertion tomorrow morning. When I went to see Faith she was asleep i check her monitors and all is well. Her color is better now and her breathing is relax with the aid of mech-ventilator. She is calm. When she heard my voice she opened her eyes for me and started stretching her arms and leg. Im excited to tell Roan who was worried so I asked her to see Faith immediately.

Unlike before my wife was so afraid to touch Faith but this time she asked the nurse if she can touch our daughter. My wife prayed for Faith. She held her feet, legs and her hands. Roan comforted her and encouraged her to be strong for her procedure.

From a distance I can see how happy my wife is with Faith. I can see how much she loves Faith. A mother's love is deeper than anything else.

If I can only freeze that moment and save it in my memory it would be my favorite.

Since Faith was conceived our roller coaster ride has begun. Some days are happy, some days are just ok and some days are heart breaking. In every situation we praise and worship the Lord. In every situation we learn to trust God and it eventually became a lifestyle to trust Jesus in everything. Even if it hurts and even if it seems impossible we have to trust God.

Today Faith is still intubated and her breathing is assisted by a machine. Her pneumonia is still there but its not progressing. Her weight remains the same, she is not gaining nor loosing. Her nourishment is supplied by TPN and her milk is on hold for a while. She is thin, small and fragile. We praised God for her life and we entrust our daughter to Him in every step of the way. While we are waiting we will worship God.

Tomorrow her procedure will be done in the morning. We will be there to pray for her and support her. May we ask if you could also pray for Faith. Like Faith you are also a warrior, our Prayer Warrior. Thank you for reading her story everyday, the purpose of all of this is to glorify God through the life of Faith.

Please feel free to share your story about your journey in trusting God.

God bless us all.

Day 25 - Stand firm in the Faith


We were excited to see Faith today after her blood transfusion last night. My wife and I were hoping that she will look good today and not pale anymore.

We have a little amount of milk for Faith and our joyful excited hearts to be with her.

We arrived a little bit early before the visiting hours so we process her papers and updated the hospital bill.

4pm and it is visiting hours. I washed my hands and put on the hospital gown. I walk towards her isollete feeling excited.

Faith was wearing a bonnet and she is not that pale anymore. Faith daddy is here and she opened her eyes. Im sure our daughter is happy to know that we are there for her. I prayed and told her how our day went and how excited we were to see her.

The nurse told me that her feeding has been hold because she had a coffee ground vomitus and they were observing her.

Suddenly Faith became restless. Her oxygen saturation dips to 62%. Right in front of my eyes i witnessed her struggle to breathe. I was scared but her attentive nurse approached her calmly and I have to trust them because they know better. This is the first time I witnessed it personally. The alarms are all ringing and on red light. I stepped back to give space for them to check Faith. They suction her secretions and positioned her comfortably. Her oxygen saturation started to go back to normal. I was scared and terrified witnessing all of that.

During that moment I was holding on to Gods promises that He is with us all the way on this journey and He will heal our little baby.

After that scenario Faith is still restless so I asked permission if I can hold her hand which they allowed. I hold Faith's little hand and she barely wrapped her hand around my index finger. I sang a lullaby for her which somehow calmed her, she was looking at me as I do it.

After 25 minutes I went to Roan. She asked me what took me so long. I told her that Faith looks cute with her bonnet and she is ok. They just need to suction her secretion and they are doing chest x-ray.

Roan went to Faith and she went back after 5 minutes. I saw her teary eyes and she said I cannot bare to see our daughter like that. I comforted her while she was crying. I am emotional too but I have to be strong for my daughter and for my wife.

I went back to Faith and she is more calm. Again I lay my hands and prayed for her. I told her "anak keep strong and kaya mo yan (you can do it). Mahal ka namin ni mommy and Jesus loves you. Keep fighting anak.

The doctor updated me with Faith's condition. She said that the pneumonia is not progressing and she is active.

They scheduled the PICC line insertion procedure tomorrow and they already ordered the material from the supplier. It is expensive and we have to settle it directly to the supplier.

The doctor said that we have to keep praying for the success of the procedure since Faith will be the smallest preemie that they will operate for that procedure.

Before we went home Roan wanted to see our daughter. She said that she was more calm and she was on prone position. They turned Faith side to side every two hours to avoid bedsores.

We stayed at the hospital parking lot for a while. Then my wife burst into tears. She was crying and worried about Faith. I told her that it is ok to cry. She is so hurt that our baby is undergoing difficulties, struggle, pain and infection.

I have to remind her that God is with us and He will take care of Faith. That God is doing miracle and He is our healer.

We attended a bible study fellowship with two Godly couples. We are reminded that we are a steward of Faith and that she is a child of God. He will protect, sustain, provide and heal Faith and above all He loves Faith.

We are so blessed to have an opportunity to worship and study the word of God in the midst of trial. That God sent godly people to encourage, walk and pray with us and for us.

Thank you Doc llorens, mae, kuya don and ate tin for a couples fellowship.

Tomorrow is another battle for Faith and for us. We need to guard our hearts from the lies of the enemy. We need to stand firm in Faith that we should trust God's power. We need to have courage and needed to be strong for the coming days. You might be in a different situation but remember that Jesus loves you. Your existence is a miracle already.

Thank you for praying for Faith. Thank you for sending your support. We are so priviledge to be Faith's steward. Lets continue to pray for our daughter.

Day 24 - A mother's touch


Today is a wonderful day for us. It is Roan's birthday. I asked her what she wants for her birthday and she answered "makasama ko lang ang anak natin masaya na ako".

We went to the hospital earlier than usual. Roan is excited because she was able to express milk for baby Faith.

Roan handed over the milk to NICU. At the entrance we were advised that Faith had an episode of desaturation last night (low blood oxygen concentration). I walked straight to her isollete and she was asleep.

Faith is pale in color and she puts too much effort breathing. My wife said that Faith is like gasping for air. Her oxygen saturation sometimes dip to 82-85 but recovers in a few.

She is moving her arms and legs and opened her eyes when I talked to her.

We were so worried of Faith's condition and witnessing our child having difficulty breaks our heart. Heart break is an understatement.

Roan said "sana ako na lang nakakaramdam ng sakit at hirap, wag na lang yung anak ko"

Its not visiting hours yet so we went out and went to the milk bank. Roan tried to pump and express milk. There we met an angel named sophia. She is 4 years old now and also borned prematurely at 26 weeks. The sweet angel embraced me when she saw me, like shes telling me not to worry. She embrace roan when we are about to go. Her mother who has known Faith through this page and is following her journey encourages us to be patient and pray harder because in the end its worth it. At this point I know that God sent them to meet us. It is not an accident that we meet each other.

We went back to NICU again. At this time Faith is wearing a bonnet and a blanket to keep her warm. She doesn't look like gasping for air anymore then I noticed that her mech-vent setting was adjusted to AC mode from SIMV. It means that the machine is initiating the breath cycle and volume. She is more relax but still looks pale.

I asked a favor from the nurse if my wife can touch our daughter. Roan never had a chance to touch and hold our daughter. The kind nurse allowed us and assisted her to touch baby Faith. Roan was very careful and excited at the same time. For the first time she was able to touch and hold our daughter. She touched her feet, her legs, and her hand. That was a magical moment, mother and daughter bounded by love.

It may not be a big deal for others but for Roan it is the best birthday gift that she received in her life. Unlike any other mother they were able to hold their baby immediately after delivery. My wife was able to do that on the 24th day with rubber gloves on her hands. Unlike other mother she have not heard our baby's cry because she is intubated. Unlike other mothers my wife cannot feed our baby directly from her breast. Unlike other mothers roan cannot comfort our daughter when she feels alone and sick. We are divided by the distance, the walls of the incubator, the walls of the hospital.

Today is my wife's birthday, the most special day of the year and we spend the time with our special and most love angel. 35 years ago she was also confined in the same NICU because of sepsis after birth and she survived. No wonder Faith is strong because her mom is a survivor.

Before leaving I was asked to go back to nicu to sign a consent. Faith needs blood transfusion tonight. We are still in the hospital at this very moment. Praying for Faith's healing and recovery.

Again my we ask for your prayers and support. God bless us all.

Day 23 - Out of comfort zone


Today is Roan's OB check up. I was able to visit my previous place where I work and I was able to see some closest friends in the hospital.

When Iwas working as a nurse there are times that I will be pulled out and transferred to other unit. It is hard and uncomfortable when you are outside your comfort zone.

On our way to the hospital I decided to turn right to an unfamiliar route. Out of our usual way.

When we arrived at the hospital we went straight to NICU. The place will welcome you with pink wall paint, beautiful smiles from the nurses and beeping sounds of the machines. The ambiance is peaceful and the staffs are working in harmony.

Faith was asleep when I got there. I didnt wake her up and started praying for her as soon as I got there. I took a glimpse on cardiac monitor and mech-vent setting. We are so blessed that Faith got the best NICU doctors and nurses. I noticed immediately that Faith is on a side lying position, and not on her usual position.

Faith is now breathing on her own effort and with very minimal help from the machine. Unlike before where the machine is totally breathing for her. Again out of her comfort zone. Her feeding has been increased and she was able to tolerate it.

Faith is doing well today. Good job anak.

Faith has been out of her comfort zone for 23 days now. Out of protection and warmth of her mother's womb. Her body is too young to be exposed to the outside world. Her lungs to young to breathe on its own. Her immune system to weak to fight any infection. Everything is out of her comfort zone.

Roan stopped working from the day we knew that we were pregnant. She was on bedrest for six months. From being an independent woman to a dependent patient. Out of her usual routine.

When I was transferred from my unit to another unit during my work at the hospital I learned a lot of things that I will never experience from my comfort zone. When I turned right to an unfamiliar route I experienced delays but I learned an alternative route. When Faith is not on her usual lying position it helped her avoid bed sore. When she is breathing on her own it will help her to breathe spontaneously and survive. When roan chose to do bed rest it prolonged her pregnancy a little bit more.

Sometimes we experience set backs, challenges and situations that will push us to get out of our comfort zone. Yes it is hard and sometimes impossible to resolve. Yet we learn when we are out of it.

My wife, my daughter and I are totally out of our comfort zone. Its difficult, its frustrating, its painful, and totally out of control. Yet we are rejoicing and praising God because every single day we never felt that we are alone. We know that God is walking with us and He is sending help. He used people to be a channel of his blessings, a channel of his encouragement and a channel of his Love.

We learned to trust him more. We may be out of our comfort zone but on this situation God has showed us how much He loves Faith and my family. Do not be afraid to go out of your comfort zone because God will sustain and guide you. Just trust him and obey his commands.

We are so excited on how God is going to fix our impossible situation and we know its worth it.

Day 22 - Peace of God



It is raining very hard today but it will never stop us from visiting Faith because she is waiting for us and we miss her so much.

She is wide awake after her diaper change and weighing. She opened her eyes to see me. She stared at me longer than before.

Good news her vent setting has been changed from AC to SIMV which mean Faith is breathing on her own effort with minimal help providing mandatory breath from mech-vent. She is doing well today.

She is responding to her mother's voice and she showed off by stretching her hands and feet. She also have a dose of milk from Roan.

Faith is fighting everyday. There are days when she is down and there are days that she is active but everyday is a miracle and we know that she is winning.

I am a nurse by profession but when I visit Faith I am a father. A father that is concern about her condition, a father that is so in love with her daughter. A father that appreciates every kick, every breath, every movement and every little progress that my daughter had.

To be honest as a parent we became very anxious most of the time. I know the prognosis, the statistics and the research studies about preemies. Fact are base on studies but we are holding on the truth. The truth that God can heal any sickness, that God has a promise for Faith's future and that God is with us during this trial. God give us peace in our heart.

Every single day we pray, we worship, we petition and we thank God for the life of Faith and how He bless us with people who prayed and supported us all this time.

We would like to thank everyone who shared their blessings to Faith. People from abu dhabi, australia, canada, america and africa. Thank you so much! People from pampanga, palawan, taguig, bataan, manila, quezon city, makati, pasay, pasig, marikina, sultan kudarat, and other provinces. To anonymous givers who transferred money on our bank account. Thank you.

Our family is thankful for your life. Every peso you sent is a love we receive for Faith. We may not be able to thank you personally but we are praying for you and God sees the kindness and generosity of your heart. Thank you. Please continue to pray for Faith.

God bless us all.

Day 21 - New Battle



Ventilator acquired pneumonia. The doctor had to break the news when we visited Faith today. It breaks my heart, knowing how difficult her situation right now and yet another battle for her to fight.

In addition her umbilical catheter is needed to be transferred. An option of cut down or picc line for new access. Her veins are not yet that big but the doctor said that they will find a way to transfer the access line. A minor operation maybe needed.

Faith opened her eyes to see me. Wiggled her feet and wave her hands acknowledging my presence. I said "Faith anak you are so strong and you need to be stronger everyday. Kapit lang anak at mahal ka namin, mahal ka ni Jesus"

Her good nurse applied moisturizer on her skin so it will not dry up. She was on close supervision and care Thank you nurse M. God bless you. The doctor took time to check her and adjust her mech-vent setting. God bless you doc.

My wife and I went home very quiet. We didn't talk about anything and our minds are worried about Faith.

We are just listening to worship song. We sang together and praising God. Then the song Over

Come the world plays. One part of the song says

"No sickness can claim us

You're the one who has overcome the world

All disease defeated

You're the one who has overcome the world

All my chains are broken

You're the one who has overcome the world

No darkness will triumph"

King Jesus, You're victorious

All the heaven roars, You're glorious

You are Lord of all, we shout Your name

Jesus, You are God, You forever reign

We proclaimed and declared that God already has overcome the sickness of our child. That all diseases are defeated because Jesus is victorious above our situation.

God already comforted us. We will worship the Lord while we are climbing our mountains. The Lord commanded that we should not be afraid and discouraged because He will be with us along the way.

We are asking for your prayers for our daughter's healing and fast recovery Thank you so much for your continuous love and support.

God bless us all!
