Editor's thoughts... On Friends and Friendship Webster defines "friend" as: "a person who you like and enjoy being with." Living in a college compound, the kids in the campus were my world
of friends and made childhood days fun. Some of the games we played: marbles, rubber bands, spider fight, "sipa or takyan"
. Playing takyan
Cans and strings came in handy. They were used as "telephones," or were converted into "shoes" for a race, called â€œlakad-lata.â€? Yes, we were a creative bunch of kiddos! In high school, my horizon had expanded to include more friends: not only from my childhood circle but classmates from different parts of the country. We enjoyed homeroom parties, excursions to Hydro I and Manupali river, drama for Sabbath afternoon programs, singing in the choir and entertaining visiting seniors from other academies. In college, the circle of friends changed. My academy and childhood friends had taken different paths to pursue their individual dreams. A new circle of friends had formed, which I cherish up to this day. Thanks to social media. I have connected with some of the friends from my past. We recall bygone days, share pictures of our family and grandkids. Thanks to the aging process, we have developed
wrinkles and have added body "fullness!" However, there is more wisdom with the same warmth of friendship."
My life has been enriched by friends. Recollecting the past, silly experiences make me smile and some even make me laugh! Thank you for the memory. I have a Friend who loves me for who I am and provides me blessings each day. This true Friend gave up His life so I can enjoy our friendship forever. I don't need social media to talk to Him. He is always by my side. He too can be your Friend.
Thoughts on Friends & Friendship ‘A friend is like a rainbow. They brighten your life when you've been through a storm.”Anonymous “If I had one gift that I could give you, my friend, it would be the ability to see yourself as others see you, because only then would you know how extremely special you are.” B.A. Billingsly “Friendship multiplies the good of life and divides the evil.”Baltasar Gracian
“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”Walter Winchell “Money might make you wealthy, but friends makes you rich.”Anonymous “Do not protect yourself by a fence, but rather by your friends.”Czech. Proverb ~~~~~~~~
ONE SPECIAL FRIEND There are many people which one may consider friends, but usually there is one who may be considered a special friend for one reason or another. I won't mention the name of this person whom I hold as special, but I would think that readers who were at MVC during my days or years there would know who I am referring to. I first noticed this individual during my sophomore year in high school. Then he was in the sixth grade. I just noticed him as a boy who ran very fast during their recess or game time. Obviously he was a very athletic person. The next time I saw him, I was in college and he was a freshman. I was then an officer in the MCC (Medical Cadet Corps) and he was one of those who showed an interest in being an officer, too. Obviously he had talent in military training. He was smart, he had command, and he showed great dedication. Eventually, after finishing the required four semesters of MCC, I was taken in by the commandant as one of the training assistants and this person was one of the top cadet officers. I moved to PUC to finish my college degree and came back to teach. After one year of teaching at MVC this friend of mine graduated and was hired
as dean of the academy boys. He was also a biology teacher and the commandant of both the high school and college military corps. As fate would have it, we were assigned to be in the same quarters in the boys' dormitory with two other new faculty members. He asked me to help in teaching some courses in ROTC and PE which I gladly agreed to because I enjoyed those things. From then on we were together on the drill grounds, as well as in PE camping. Aside from these two fields, we also had other interests like basketball and soccer. We were either playing with students, or officiating in the games. We also played badminton with the other teachers. Teaching together as well as playing together gave us plenty of enjoyable times. Then something sort of wild got into our heads. We decided to climb Mt. Kitanglad. So with Polbert Diaz and Leopoldo Aggabao, we left on a bus one early morning bound for the town which we considered closest to the mountain trail. It was about 25 kilometers to the top of the mountain. We got to the telecommunications station at the top of one of the peaks at about 9:30 that night. That was the very first climb to the top of Mt. Kitanglad by MVCians. We climbed together a few more times after that, with increasing numbers of persons with us. Eventually our paths separated, he moved to another school, I stayed at MVC. Then I came to California. We still met a few more times, once in St. Louis, MIssouri at the General Conference session there, at another time we met again in Redlands, CA. The last time we met he was in the ICU of Miller Sanitarium and Hospital. We saw his daughter outside the room so we asked her if it was okay to see him. He was very sick then but he told us when we went to his bedside that he knew it was us, my wife and I, who came to visit. He recognized our voices. We visited him again the following week, and that was the last time we saw him. He passed away the following year.
He was a dear friend. We did a lot of things together, we shared good times and not so good times. We shared friends, and I would say we had many very good experiences together. He was in fact our best man in our wedding. So my dear friend, rest in peace and I hope we could meet again to renew our activities in the earth made new. Eddie Zamora
“Friends will come and friends will go, The seasons change and it will show, I will grow and so will you, But our friendship stays, strong and true.”

"Friendship is a priceless gift that can't be bought or sold, It's value is far greater than a mountain made of gold. For gold is cold and lifeless, it can neither see nor hear, And in the time of trouble, it is powerless to cheer. It has no ear to listen, no heart to understand, So when you ask God for a gift, be thankful if He sends Not diamonds, pearls or riches, but the love of real true friends." -‐-‐Inspiringshortstories.org ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“The silver friend knows your present and the gold friend knows all of your past dirt and glories. Once in a blue moon there is someone who knows it all, someone who knows and
accepts you unconditionally, someone who is there for life.” unknown ~~~~~~~~ FRIENDSHIP ABC....
Always be honest, would you want THEM to lie to you? Be there when they need you, or you may wind up alone. Cheer them on, we all need encouragement now and then. Don't look for their faults, even if you have none. Encourage their dreams, what would we be without them? Forgive them, you just MAY do something wrong sometime. Get together often, misery loves company, so does glee. Have faith in them, the human animal is remarkable. Include them, you may need to be included sometime. Just be there when they need you. Know when they need a hug, and couldn't you use one? Love them unconditionally, that is the ONLY condition. Make them feel special, because aren't we ALL special? Never forget them, who wants to feel forgotten? Offer to help, and know when "No thanks" is just politeness. Praise them honestly and openly. Quietly disagree, noisy NO's make enemies. Really listen, a friendly ear is a soothing balm. Say you're sorry, don't let them assume it. Talk frequently, communication is important.
Use good judgment Verbalize your feelings! Wish them luck, hopefully good! Xamine your motives before you "help" Your words count, use them wisely. Zip your lips when told a secret.
By following these ABC's as often as you are able, you SHOULD live a LONG and friend-filled life. --Unknown--

On a Lighter Note It was one of the worst days of my life. The washing machine broke down, the telephone kept ringing, my head ached, and the mail carrier brought a bill I had no money to pay. Almost to the breaking point, I lifted my oneyear-old into his highchair, leaned my head against the tray, and began to cry. Without a word, my son took his pacifier out of his mouth and stuck it in mine. Clara Null Chicken Soup for the Working Woman’s Soul

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Real friend test A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself. A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears. A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book. A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party. A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean. A simple friend hates it when you call after he has gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call. A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems. A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight. A simple friend expects you to always be there for them. A real friend expects to always be there for you! Unknown

Come with me to a third grade classroom. There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened. It's never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they'll never speak to him again as long as he lives. The boy believes his heart is going to
stop; he puts his head down and prays this prayer, 'Dear God, this is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from now I'm dead meat.' He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered. As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy's lap. The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, 'Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!' Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts to put on while his pants dry out. All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful... But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else - Susie. She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. 'You've done enough, you klutz!' Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, 'You did that on purpose, didn't you?' Susie whispers back, 'I wet my pants once too.' Unknown
I have a friend Around the corner I have a friend, In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on, And before I know it, a year is gone. And I never see my old friends face, For life is a swift and terrible race, He knows I like him just as well, As in the days when I rang his bell. And he rang mine, we were younger then, And now we are busy, tired men, Tired of playing a foolish game, Tired of trying to make a name. "Tomorrow," I say, "I will call on Jim, Just to show that I'm thinking of him." But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, And distance between us grows and grows. Around the corner! - yet miles away, Here's a telegram sir, "Jim died today," And that's what we get and deserve in the end, Around the corner, a vanished friend. Unknown

Giving Wood Leads to Decision to be Baptized By Rosita Montebon Gospel Outreach Evangelist, Pampanga One day, I was cleaning inside the church when a lady named Liza Barcial and her 3 children entered the gate. They came in and said, “We are looking for fire wood.” I responded, “There is fire wood behind the church fence.” They were very thankful because they did not have to go far to find it. After she left, I got the idea to give her Bible studies. One afternoon, when I passed by her house, I saw her doing their clothes outside, so I approached her. After a short conversation with her, I asked, “Would you be willing to learn the Bible truth with me?” Without
hesitation, she replied, “Yes!”
That day we started the study. When Sabbath came, she decided to attend the Sabbath worship with her kids. Our regular study went on and her husband joined us in the study. He is happy because Jimmy Evangelio joined me in the study of the Bible with them. Just last week, we studied about baptism. When we finished our study, we asked, “Are you ready to accept Jesus as your own personal Savior?” She gladly answered us, "Yes, I am willing to accept Christ as my Savior by accepting baptism.” We praise the Lord for His guidance and leading through the Holy Spirit.

Closing Thoughts “A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you
have forgotten the words.” unknown
I’ve found a friend, O such a friend! He loved me ere I knew Him; He drew me with the cords of love, and thus He bound me to Him; And round my heart still closely twine those ties which naught can sever,
For I am His, and He is mine, forever and forever. -‐-‐James G. Small-‐-‐
