eastwind memoirs 01 – TWO FILIPINO SAILORS IN ATHENS

eastwind memoirs 01
________________________________
Two Filipinos Sailors in Athens
 
By Bernie Lopez, eastwindreplyctr@gmail.com

 

(The Filipino author hitchhiked 25,000 kilo­meters for 18 months, drifting through 18 countries in Europe and North Africa for 3 years. This is a true story, with the dialogue reconstructed.)
 
            On my second day in Athens, I wandered into Syntagma Square in the center of the city.
         “Hey you, Filipino,” a Greek waiter in all white spoke.
         “Hello,” I countered.
         “You Filipinos are the craziest people I have met ever.”
         “Really now. How come?” I countered.
         There were about ten waiters dressing up with white linen a long table about half a kilometer long across the entire square. It practically ended at the horizon.
         He continued, “You see this table, 300 meters long? This table is for big shots like the mayor of the city or an impor­tant business­man. This table is expensive. Only rich people have their parties here.”
         “What does that have to do with crazy Filipinos?” I asked.
         “You see that crazy Filipino over there?” he pointed to one giving instructions to the waiters.
         “That’s the crazy Filipino? Looks normal to me.”
         “You don’t understand. He is a humble second officer in a Panamanian ship that just landed in Piraeus yesterday. He can’t possibly afford to hire this long table.”
         “If he is a Filipino seaman, he can,” I said.
         “That’s what I mean. You guys are crazy. He saves his salary for five years and spends it all in one birthday bash. He is inviting all Filipinos in the entire city of Athens, I mean all. Now, tell me, what is the logic in all that?”
         “I don’t think you would understand even if I explained it to you,” I countered.
         “Try me.”
         “Well, okay. Filipinos have a different way of looking at things. Money is not everything. You work your ass off, that’s okay. But for a Filipino seaman, you earn money to spend it.”
         “I give up. You’re just as crazy. I wouldn’t kill myself for five years inside the belly of a lousy ship just for a birthday party. He’s crazy.”
         “I agree. He’s crazy alright. But he likes a birthday bash. What can you say? I must meet him and get invited,” I said.
         I walked over to him and he smiled upon seeing me, speak­ing in our native language, “Name’s Monching. What ship are you from?”
         “Name’s Bernie. No ship. I’m not a seaman.”
         “You’re invited anyway to my birthday tomorrow night. All Filipinos are invited, no matter who they are, what they are, nurses, musicians, bar girls, whoever. Listen, I’m busy. You go talk to my friend Kardo over there.” he pointed to another Filipino and left to give more instruc­tions to the waiters.

 

***************
         I went over to Kardo. He had a huge dapple bag with him. He was in the US navy.
         “What ship?” he asked.
         “No ship,” I answered.
         “What are you doing here?”
         “Not much. Just passing through?”
         “And you’re not a seaman?”
         “Nope.”
         “That’s strange. You must be a tourist.”
         Filipino seamen were not aware of Filipino drifters, hitchhikers, which were rare at that time. I did not bother to explain.
         “Listen, man, I need help,” he whispered furtively, look­ing away to see if there was anybody else listening.
         “Yes?”
         “You see this?” he opened the huge dapple bag. I peered in and saw a ton of blue seal Salem and Winston cigarettes, green and red like Christmas decor. “You help me. We sell this in the night bars. You get free drinks.”
         “You’ve got about $2,000 worth in there, right?”
         “Five. Okay, okay, I’ll give you a commission,” he whis­pered cloak-and-dagger style.
         “I’m not interested in a commission. I’d like the drink though.”
         “You’re on. Let’s go.”
         “You navy men are crazy.”
         “Of course, that’s the only way to be. Listen, this is nothing. I smuggled Harley Davidsons in Corsica.”
         “You got anything in mind aside from making money on the side?”
         “Of course. Women. You want a woman tonight? On me.”
         And so we left Monching, fixing up his birthday party, and went around the bars. I was amazed the bartenders knew him. He must have been smuggling cigarettes regularly for years. We had one or two free drinks in every bar. After about ten bars, we were dead drunk. The dapple bag was now almost empty. Kardo treated me to American steak somewhere. I could hardly walk. I couldn’t go home, so Kardo dragged me to his three-star hotel. Pretty good. I ended up with a hangover and missed Monching’s party. I could have met the entire Filipino community of Athens but I had a splitting headache from retsina, the Greek wine which smelled and tasted like aviation gas to a Filipino.

every path is unique
no one can live your life for you
gurus can only give tips and guidelines
in the end you fly your own aircraft
you flap your own wings
you watch your own sunset
you find your own path
in your own way in your own style
when you enter the dark forest
good and bad things lurk
to make and break your soul
take the chance, you will not regret it
darkness and light will encompass you
make the Lord your beacon
gather strength in His grace
and everything will fall into place

Dear Papa Jesus,
My daughter Maan has been diagnosed with Ovarian cyst with elevated CA125.  She is only 19 years old with many high hopes on her career for the very near future.  Please help her heal her pains and sickness on this treacherous disease. I also ask Mama Mary’s intercession to beg you Papa Jesus to touch my daughter with your warm Healing Hands tonight.  I firmly believe that you are to heal her with this request. Maan is our eldest in the family of 3.  As you know, my wife and I have asked Maan from our Lady of Mediatrix at Mount Carmel Church in Lipa 19 years ago.  My wife had a hard time in bearing a child during those times. So please, don’t let her depart from us and we all beg for help and intercession. We all pray.

*************
APPENDIX
*************
 
PRAYER REQUEST PROTOCOL.
1
Make your request short and do not post repeatedly as it results in confusion and double entries we cannot monitor.
2
English is better so non-Filipinos prayer warriors can understand your prayer requests.
3
Put a subject title “prayer request” to avoid being identified as a spam. ‘No subject’ are not read but deleted.
4
We protect the privacy of requesters. Email addresses and last names are not published. This does not change the efficacy of the prayers.
5
The ministry mainly accepts prayer requests from individuals. We cannot accept a large stream of requests from a single source which has its own prayer grouping and forwards requests to us one by one. We cannot handle this kind of volume. We prefer the requests to first be consolidated into one document and sent to us a single request.
 
THE ESSENCE OF PRAYER AND PAIN
 
The Lord sanctifies all who reads this bulletin, prayer requesters, prayer warriors, and readers. When you read this bulletin, you will realize that perhaps your pain is nothing compared to those of others. Pain is an act of prayer if offered to the Lord. Pain sanctifies and may often be the Lord’s instrument to bring us closer to Him.
 
PREDOMINANT PRAYER REQUESTS
 
Physical healing– cancer and other terminal diseases.
Spiritual healing– depression, confusion, loss of faith.
Relationship healing – friends and family quarrels, separations, conflicts.
Financial rescue– unemployment, exams, businesses, medical expenses.
 
For the sick, request for healing oil for free by postal mail. Just give your postal address to sr.raquel.rvm@gmail.com. But first read about its history, healing oil that appeared miraculously a day before Ondoy-

Dear Mother Ignacia del Espiritu Santo,
I come to you to thank you for the healing that I have received through your intercession with the Lord. I prayed to you while I was at Cagayan de Oro Betania Retreat House and asked to be healed of my chronic pain which would not give me rest. When I came to Manila on the third week of May, I found myself healed. It was a miracle. Unfortunately, although I enjoyed three pain-free days, I was not gentle on myself, I forgot to say thank you, and I also did not change my lifestyle. So the pain returned. But let it be known to all that I was healed, but through my own fault the pain returned. Please give me a second chance, Mother Ignacia. With God, I know nothing is impossible.

Dear Sr. Raquel,
I hope this e-mail finds you well. Please know that I praise God for your ministry and pray that He continues to bless you and all prayer warriors. I also thank Him for all the blessings He has bestowed and continues to bestow upon us. He is truly a good God, and He is bigger than any challenge we may be facing. Sr. Raquel, I am respectfully requesting prayers for the following special intentions:
1. For my Mom (RMA) who underwent surgery after a recent diagnosis of breast cancer. I pray for her speedy recovery and for the Lord to heal her not just physically but emotionally and spiritually, as well. After further testing done on the breast that they took out, they found out that the lump was bigger than they had originally estimated and that she was at stage 2 (not stage 1 as originally diagnosed). I pray for the cancer cells to be totally wiped out and that she will not need chemotherapy. I ask that she will continue to have a strong faith in God’s goodness despite this ordeal that she is going through.
2. For the whole family, especially my Dad (VZA), I ask for strength and acceptance of God’s will. I pray that we may remain positive and be able to continue to provide support (whether it be emotionally or financially) to anyone in need.  I ask that God bring us all together, to reconnect, and to strengthen our ties especially in this time of adversity.
3. For my only child (JVAO)–who is trying to join in the military but has encountered a ‘road block’ with medical waivers due to allergies diagnosed when he was a young child. I pray that my son will be granted a waiver and be able to move forward in this enlisment process, if this is God’s will for him.  I ask the good Lord to help him find his true calling and become successful in any of his future endeavours.
All of these I lift up to you, in Jesus powerful name. Thank you Sr. Raquel and the prayer warriors for your prayers. God bless you all for all you do. Sincerely,
MAO

Dear Sr. Raquel,
May the Lord bless you and keep you ! Sr. I have been sick these past few months. Pabalik- balik po ang aking acid reflux and gasthritis. Madalas din po akong nakakaramdam ng pananakit ng ulo, high blood at pain sa aking dibdib. Nagpabalik- balik na po ako sa mga Drs. at maraming laboratories pero hindi pa rin ako lubusang gumagaling. Pray for mr Sr. Raquel for my complete healing at gusto ko pong bumisita rin sa inyo. Wednesday and Saturday pa rin po ba ang schedule ninyo sa Healing Center? Same address po ba, kasi first time ko pong dadalaw sa inyo. I also wish to bring my mother who was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer. Matanda na po siya, at age 76 napahirap pong maranasan pa ng aking ina ang ganitong karamdaman kaya gusto ko rin pong dalhin siya sa inyo. Eto rin po ang dahilan kung bakit gusto kong gumaling para maalagaan ko siya. By the way Sr. My profession is counseling the sick especially cancer patients and their families. Eto po ang nararamdaman kong calling after finishing my M. A. in Counseling. Kaya gusto ko pong gumaling upang maipagpatuloy ko ito. I will wait for your reply, thanking you most sincerely.

I am asking for prayers for my current condition.  I have a very resistant fungal infection and a kidney stone.  The treatment involves many days of a dangerous IV anti-fungal.  I do not want to leave my daughter at this time as she desperately needs me.  She has already lost her father and daughter and is angry with God. Losing me would be the final straw so I ask for God’s miraculous mercy that if possible, the infection clears up without the antibiotics and the stone passes on it’s own without surgery.  Please Dear Lord, do not let my daughter lose her final family member, she is not strong enough and has been already so destroyed.  She has no one left in this world, except for her grandmother who is elderly.  She is desperate for love, but is heartbroken and fearful of losing me too. Please heal me and make me well again so that I can be there for her and help lead her back to You.

Dear Sister Raquel,
I am Evelyn from Tuguegarao, Cagayan. My Sister FLORIDA who resides in Sorsogon, is now very sick. She is suffering from ovarian cancer and have already undergone several chemotheraphy treatment but she is not getting well. She already went there at Mother Ignacia Healing Center last May 10, 2013 and stayed there from 8am to 5pm and was already prayed over by a Sister there. She is supposed to come back the next day, Saturday, for the bathing but unfortunately she was not able to make it because she was already very sick. Now, she is confined at Manila Doctors Hospital. Sister, may I request for prayer healing for my Sister Florida. I have my full faith with Lord Jesus the healer and I believe he will lay His healing power to my Sister Florida through the intercession of Mama Mary. Attached is her picture with her husband. Thank you po!
EVELYN

Dear sister raquel, pls pray and ask your prayer warriors to pray for the healing of daisy B.
If it is not the Lord’s will to heal her, at least, please pray that she does not suffer too much pain; if possible, as it is with Him, to take away the pain.

Sis. Racquel, please pray for my dear friend Diana Jean A. for her total healing from breast cancer…  She has been our inspiration to us. She’s a fighter with fear and love of God… She’s waiting for God’s miracle. Please pray for Divine Intervention to her sickness. Amen. God Bless!

+Praise the Holy Trinity. Blood and Water from the side of Christ wash over the whole world. Prayers for my son David Jr. – I’ve been more concerned about myself since I have lost my job and I am sorry  – and have detached myself from my son who is an ex marine and can’t seem to get it together – he lives with his grandfather – works a midnight shift job – is not good with his money – I think he has an addiction – is not honest with us – does not seem contrite – he can’t seem to find regular work – will God save him?  Will he find God? We have 6 other children we are trying to help.  I admit, I’m tired.  I don’t know how to help him.  I do not feel I have been the right mother for him. Thank you for your prayers for my son – I want him to be saved and to be able to take care of himself – or at least know what I am to do for him.

CELMA
LET US NOT BLAME OUR MISFORTUNES ON THE LORD. HE HAS A PURPOSE IN ALL THIS. IT IS A MYSTERY. HIS WAYS ARE NOT OUR WAYS. ALL THAT IS NEEDED IS OUR FAITH AND PRAYERS TO HIM. SURRENDER YOUR PAIND AND YOUR WILL TO THE LORD. SO WE PRAY HARD TOGETHER FOR CELMA.

 

*************
APPENDIX
*************
 
PRAYER REQUEST PROTOCOL.
1
Make your request short and do not post repeatedly as it results in confusion and double entries we cannot monitor.
2
English is better so non-Filipinos prayer warriors can understand your prayer requests.
3
Put a subject title “prayer request” to avoid being identified as a spam. ‘No subject’ are not read but deleted.
4
We protect the privacy of requesters. Email addresses and last names are not published. This does not change the efficacy of the prayers.
5
The ministry mainly accepts prayer requests from individuals. We cannot accept a large stream of requests from a single source which has its own prayer grouping and forwards requests to us one by one. We cannot handle this kind of volume. We prefer the requests to first be consolidated into one document and sent to us a single request.
 
THE ESSENCE OF PRAYER AND PAIN
 
The Lord sanctifies all who reads this bulletin, prayer requesters, prayer warriors, and readers. When you read this bulletin, you will realize that perhaps your pain is nothing compared to those of others. Pain is an act of prayer if offered to the Lord. Pain sanctifies and may often be the Lord’s instrument to bring us closer to Him.
 
PREDOMINANT PRAYER REQUESTS
 
Physical healing– cancer and other terminal diseases.
Spiritual healing– depression, confusion, loss of faith.
Relationship healing – friends and family quarrels, separations, conflicts.
Financial rescue– unemployment, exams, businesses, medical expenses.
 
For the sick, request for healing oil for free by postal mail. Just give your postal address to sr.raquel.rvm@gmail.com. But first read about its history, healing oil that appeared miraculously a day before Ondoy-

DRONE OPERATOR ADMITS KILLING 1,626 / drone child victim photo

______________________________________________
DRONES AS WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

 

A young drone operator, who admits he has killed 1,626 people on the other side of the globe, says that the high-resolution images of bloody massacres haunt him. Even in his comfortable air-conditioned office, he sees an assassin and a serial killer in himself. Who perverted his innocence? His interview with the press is shown in a video link below.

 

After watching the interview, will the ordinary American begin to understand why there was a Boston Bomber and that there will be many more to come? Ordinary Americans killed in terror acts are related to ordinary Pakistanis killed in anti-terror acts thousands of miles away many years before. Who are the culprits in all this? Can we reverse this vicious escalating circle of hatred and vengeance, or are we helpless forever?

 

South African Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa speaks, “Does the US really want to tell those of us in the rest of the world that our lives are not of the same value as (theirs)?”… “Tutu challenged the hypocrisy of the US and its citizens for accepting a killer drone program when it pertains to foreign suspects while demanding judicial review when those targets are American citizens.
