Perang Hindi Bitin: New beginnings
I thank the Lord over and over because He fulfilled His promise of giving me another ‘great love’ after my first wife, Tingting, died. Sabi ni Lord sa puso ko when I was down and grieving, “Anak, huwag ka nang malungkot dahil magmamahal ka ulit.”
At nagkatotoo nga ang promise ng Panginoon sa akin! Today, I am married to a Godly woman named Miriam Quiambao. Hindi lang pang-Miss Universe ang ganda niya, pero tulad ni Tingting, siya ay isang Proverbs 31 woman. Beautiful inside and out! I praise God that He blessed me with a life partner, ministry partner and business partner who is super sipag, enterprising and matiyaga.
Ngayong magka-partner kami ni Miriam sa isang bagong business called Tubo Cane Juice (Facebook.com/tubo-cane-juice ). We started in February of this year in Alabang Town Center and today we have two additional outlets in Festival Mall (Alabang) and Metro Alabang in ATC.
Today, our team is working hard to grow the business by giving good customer service along with our fresh Sugar Cane Juice. As the master franchisee of this business which was started in Cebu by the founder, Cristoph Schiessl, excited kami how God has blessed us with this opportunity to bless many.
Kasi hindi lang ito isang business providing our customers with freshly squeezed, all natural, Tubo Cane Juice but we are also helping the children of sugar cane workers finance and complete their schooling. We advocate fair trade and fair salaries. We also support the advocacy of Go Negosyo and our fellow Angelpreneur, Mon Abrea (The Tax Whiz) to pay the right taxes and be good citizens.
Blessed na blessed din ako kasi si Miriam is also teaching Joshua how to tithe, save and budget his earnings (my 8 years old son is learning to do business also) and allowance.
Heto ang sabi ng Bible sa Proverbs 31 tungkol sa asawang masipag at enterprising:
The Wife of Noble Character
Mahirap makakita ng mabuting asawa, higit sa mamahaling alahas ang kanyang halaga.
Pinaglilingkuran niya ang asawa habang sila’y nabubuhay, pawang kabutihan ang ginagawa at di kasamaan.
Wala siyang tigil sa paggawa, hindi na halos nagpapahinga, humahabi ng kanyang telang lino at lana.
Tulad ng isang barkong puno ng kalakal, siya ay nag-uuwi ng pagkain mula sa malayong lugar.
She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.
She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
Gayunma’y naiingatan ang kamay at katawan upang matupad ang lahat ng kanyang tungkulin araw-araw.
