Location: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

I am Bong, 46-yrs old, filipino, married and have 4 children, christian and pastoring Jesus Cares Ministry in the Middle EAst, a growing Church with a member of 300 in diff. regions. I work previously from Jacobs Enineering as Interior Designer and by the grace of God I am now partner with the firm Eleganza Contracting Co. I love carpentry work and smell of sawdust. In my secondary level I took and major Furniture and Cabinet Making and continued in Technical Drafting. Became a Interior Designer by experience and inherit on our bloodline of the Family business, since my parent and all the member of the family are on the same field. And provably because Joseph and Our Lord Jesus were carpenter in somehow recieved this gift. I enjoy both my ministry and profession.
I remember my first project when I was at 16yrs old, I made a babycrib, did all the turning, plaining,mortising,tenon and join,the good one is patience in weaving the rattan of the bedcrib.Not long enough I learn to how build buffet and hutch, dresser, nightstand, dining table. even I love operating machines, the sound of the rattling wood inside the thickness or surface planer is like a music in my ears. Would you beilive 80% of my I build it, unfortunately it was covered with volcanic lahar last 1991. Anyway God giveth and takenth still praise His name. and I might not be where am I now if those things were not happened. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
