Hayy, yeahh, the pressures of being a Pastor's Kid, tell me about it. :) Ours was not a perfect Pastor's family. Sometimes I feel that it's not even close to the vicinity of being a model family that people expect of us. PKs backslide (albeit not obviously), fight with their Dads, and wish they're not pastor's kids. Hehe. And yup, sometimes I got jealous with my Dad too, back them, for giving too much attention to them church members more than we felt he gave attention to us. Of course, until I begin to realize that it's a calling too, being Pastor's kids, and that my Dad's ministries are our ministries too. I'll never have it another way. :) But you're right too. God calls us in different ways, so it's really up to us how we bloom where He planted us. Gaah. Maybe I should be posting this stuff on my blog instead. Haha. Ayt. ayan, nasesenti tuloy ako. haha. Thanks po ulit kuya :)

Hi Riz, #1. Here's the context (I chose not to actually post it, masyadong hahaba). In the US, statistics show that more than 50% of pastors' marriage ended up in divorce, most pastor's wives would like their husbands to have a different job if they are given a choice, most pastors' kids fall into sin because of the pressure of being that -- a pastor's kids. Reading between the line, probably the pastor was never home to be with "his flock". Bad daddy. I'm not sure about the stats here in the PH. (But I'm sure your dad's not one of them -- you have a great family, you grew up with strong faith in God). I don't want to fall into that category, so I have to make sure that I start right. Have a great relationship with God, with family and with others (including friends and employees). The result is a great service to God -- the church. #2. You're so right. In fact, my personal conviction is, I don't have to go somewhere else if even in my own circle of friends, there are still lost people. My office is my Timbuktu. :D #3. Consider the last part as a "non-essential doctrine". :-) We all have preferences on "non-essentials". St. Augustine, "In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, liberty. In everything, charity" ;) #4. Yep. You got me. It took the last one 4 days before it was filled up. :D Thanks for the interview. I enjoyed it.

Okaay my comment got truncated. Anyway. #3. As I was saying, You almost got me with the OS and Linux downloading stuff and installing them part. The last part is unnecessary. LOL. What if you're saying to an anti-MAC? (Like me??!) PFFTT! Hehe. #4. Aesia. Nice. I like the sound of that. :) #5. Haha. Your last item sounded a little forced. As if you just had to add that one because you couldnt think of anything anymore haha. But okaayy, i'll accept that. Hehe. Thanks for taking time to answer this one, albeit the loooong delay :) Actually, you're the only one who dared ask me to interview him. LOL. So thanks, your answers made me ponder on some stuff myself. ;) God bless po!

#1. Ohhh. But you're right, I was kindof wondering why you're putting Ministry last. Question satisfied. I have to say, I agree. :) #2. Sometimes I get inspired when some Christians would give up their jobs to go full-time in the ministry or to be missionaries in, say, Timbuktu or some far off place where their lives could be at stake. Then again, God seems to always assure me that I am where He wants me to be, after all, wherever He calls us, He makes that place our mission field. No need to go far. My "timbuktu" could be right here, sitting next to me in my office. :) #3. Oh, by the way, if you’re using a Mac, you’re already in heaven. :D
