......Rewind.....

Wala lang....dito ako ngayon sa bahay.... binasa-basa ko ulit yung mga naunang nailathala dito sa blogspot ng Chapter natin.... at least dito sa bahay, mas mahaba oras ko mag internet.... hindi tulad sa labas, lulubusin ko yung bente pesos ko kada isang Oras... mahirap yun ah! Kapag may makita na akong mensahe sa Email ko, teka teka... forward messages.... teka mahaba ito ah!!!! napipilitan kong ibale-wala yung natanggap na Email, kadalasan nabubura ko lamang...sayang oras eh.... bahala na...

Pero ngayon, lahat ng E-mails na natatanggap ko, may oras na akong basahin at intindihin... Maganda kasi yung mensahe kahit forwarded messages lang, at minsan nagkakataon na kinakailangan mo ng mga Words of Wisdom during the times na deppressed ka o may problema ka... Kaya nawiwili din ako na i-forward ang mga trip kong Messages sa mga Kaibigan ko, sa mga Brods at sa iba pa....

Ngayon nga, nabasa ko muli ang mga post ng mga Brods... ang ganda ng mga mensahe.... maayos pa ang pagkaka-prisinta ng mga ideya... at sadyang makabuluhan hindli lamang sa mga brods, kundi pati sa iba...

Sadyang nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng natutunan ko sa kanilang mga post dito sa blogspot natin....

Para sa mga bisita dito sa Blogspot ng A. Mabini Chapter.... WELCOME!

It is one of the toughest Elections I have witnessed in our Chapter.

There are so many qualified in all positions, and many are willing to be at service to our Chapter. (Nakakataba ng puso, that they run spite of the Challenges and Problems, they may experience as future Leaders of our Chapter.)

All of them are COMPLETE with their visual presentations, feasibility study of their proposed activities and Term Program if ever they will be Elected to their preferred positions. They even express their sincere leadership and participation to all DeMolay Activities in an open Bible.

After the crucial stage of question and answer portion, the following are the List of Elected Officers for Term 2005-B:

Master Councilor : Bro. John Ryan M. Rodriguez
Senior Councilor : Bro. Kenneth Paul A. Estaca
Junior Councilor : Bro. Joseph T. Calasanz

************************************************************************

To ALL Winners and to ALL other NOMINEES - CONGRATULATIONS!

We witnessed you petition to A. Mabini Chapter, passed the Written and Oral Examinations given by the Chapter, then Initiated the Degrees of DeMolay. We witnessed how you become a good follower in a Committee and eventually see you spearhead an Activity to make it a very successful one...

Words cannot express my Gratitude and Happiness, to you Active DeMolays, you have been continuously developing for the better you. In terms of winning from different Athletic and Ritual Competitions, you made this Chapter very proud. Now you want to hold an elected position in the Chapter as a token of your dedication, Thank you Very much!

Some of you may not be Elected today or tomorrow, or on the next DeMolay Term.... but it does not mean, no one appreciates who you are.... it does not mean that you are not qualified... or even that you are not worthy...

Brods... In DeMolay, we have been taught not to loose Faith in ourselves, even during we were still petitioners, akala natin Magaling na tayo, hindi pa pala, so we need to improve. OR akala natin hindi tayo papasa sa Standards ng Chapter na ito... But now you are a DeMOLAY! Because you have been strong to face the Challenges brought before you.... that is faith to win over trials.

Don't EVER loose HOPE my Brothers.

God is Loving to those who believe, SO believe in HIM, Pray for HIS assistance to your entire endeavor. In doing so, keep on practicing and developing your weaknesses so that you will be better.

To our New set of Officers, this Term is truly Challenging. Anticipate the unexpected problems our Chapter may encounter, and ACT fast to resolve those problems. And hoped you will be a good, diplomatic leaders of this Chapter, by being a GOOD Examples to your Members. I know some of you are very new to those positions... BUT it does not mean there will be Fewer Expectations to the Proper Performance of your DUTIES. We are here not to earn profit, but to loose some. And We are not here for prestige, but we will gain criticism for lack of improvement.

To all who have just first witnessed the Elections, May I repeat it once more, that ours is TRULY a Sacred Elections.

We Vote for the Good of the Order, and not because of RELIGION, MONEY, FAMILY RELATIONS, GENDER, POPULARITY, FRIENDSHIP, and POWER.

We need somebody who will be the Role model of the Members;

We need somebody who is reliable representative of our beloved Chapter.

To the Incumbent Officers of Term 2005-A, JOB WELL DONE! Congratulations Brethren!

My hopes are for the further Greater Improvement of our DeMolay Chapter and of the Members.

Let us KEEP our BURNING Desire to be GOOD DeMOLAYS today, and GREAT LEADERS Tomorrow.

Salamat!

For God, For Country and For DeMolay!
