“Kung may nagagawa man po tayo, tayo po’y nagiging maliit na instrumento lamang. At wala naman tayong magagawa kung hindi man tayo gagamitin din noong Nasa Itaas. Ang gusto lang natin sana, ang dalangin lang natin sana ay magamit pa tayo sa iba’t ibang paraan kung ano pang maaaring paggamitan sa atin.“
(If we are able to do good, we are being used as small instruments. We cannot do anything if we will not be used by the One above. Our hope and what we are always praying for is that God will use as more in whatever ways we’ll be of use. )
