Jaira May

Hi beautiful people! So, I’ll share to you Jaira May.

She said that today is her birthday. She is thirteen years old today.

She is a morena sweet girl. She often calls me in messenger whenever she likes. Although, there was this one time that I told her to just text me before calling, because I might be busy doing things that I need to do. I met her at New Beginning Community Church at Mandaluyong from many many years ago, when I was still studying for Medicine. She was from Sunday school of the Church.

Jaira means “He will light up” in Hebrew. It’s the feminine form of Jairus.


May is “the fifth month”. The month of May was named for Maia, the Roman earth goddess. Also a short form of the names Matthew and Mary.


She agreed for me to be her mentor yesterday, and to be my disciple. Thank You God.

I don’t really get how to do this discipleship thing. Is there a manual to use? How to put boundaries to maintain respect? How to take care of their soul as an accountability partner? Should I start including them in my prayers?

I’ve heard a lot of Christians telling other people to disciple. But how do they do it? I don’t know. I’m clueless.

I’ve just observed them having small groups online. Should I do the same?

I don’t know if she can understand my point of view, since she is so young, like we’re 17 years apart. At a very young age, she have undergone already so much difficulties, which is way harder than my present and past struggles. I have not been a mother before. I don’t know how to effectively do this. I just want the best for her. I want her to dream big and to finish her studies. I believe she has a bright future ahead of her. (praying)
