Photo Friday: Our top 5 ‘God’s Grace’ photos.

Welcome to Photo Friday! Each Friday, we share photo collections of our favourite shots from our sponsor sites around the world.  

It’s Friday the 13th, and you know what that means? Bad…er, good luck! Around here, we know that good luck is another way of saying God’s grace. This week, we’re sharing our top 5 ‘God’s Grace’ photos. After all, as 2 Corinthians 12:9 says, My grace is sufficient for you, for power[a] is made perfect in weakness.”  These photos remind us that all we do is a product of God’s grace.

The Radiance of Filipino cuisine: Pansit

Our regions are known for their radiant cuisine, and the Philippines are no exception. With more than 100 ethno-linguistic groups scattered throughout the nation, the country’s cuisine reflects the rich diversity of its residents. 

Noodles are a common ingredient in Filippino cooking, and pansit is no exception. This stir-fried noodle dish is made with fresh cabbage, sliced chicken, and a helping of soy sauce. It’s the ultimate comforting meal. Bonus points for not needing to turn on the oven, so it’ll keep you cool in the summer. 

This dish has also become popular in the island of Guam, one of the Mariana islands in what is known as Micronesia. Residents of the Philippines have a history of migration to Guam, and today, pansit is often eaten on birthdays and New Year’s Eve.  

When you make this dish, you can remember all those you support in the Philippines!
