MINISTRY UPDATE - APRIL 2017 CRIS CONCEPCION | EVERY NATION CAMPUS

Anyeong haseyo!

It is my heart's desire to know that you are in good condition as you read this ministry update for the month. I am very excited to update you with what has happened on our ministry by God's grace and thru you prayers and partnership, here are the some of our highlights. :)

Before the semester ends, there's a big pressure for the students to have a good final exam result to be able to pass the whole semester. And as leaders, we felt the need to be a blessing to the students in simple ways to lighten up the burden and pressure of which they carry.

"FINALS NA!!! Can we PRAY for you" campaign

During finals week, we took it as an opportunity to bless the students by giving out FREE "yellow paper and blue book" which they often use as answer sheets every exam.

We were able to bless more than 50 students that day. This might just be a simple "yellow paper & blue book" to them, but we know that this is an opportunity and open door for them to know Christ and to experience His unconditional love.

Every student received a blue book and yellow paper, they received a prayer and declaration of faith that they will pass the semester with flying colors as well. After praying we also remind them that their future is very much secured in Jesus. We hope to be a source of encouragement and hope in times of pressure.

While having their review at the corridor, we grab the opportunity to pray for them and we also preached the Gospel to them.
This student got curious with why are we giving away free exam books, so we immediately invited him to our Youth service.
We are grateful as well for the perfect opportunity to preach the Gospel to some of the students.

We also took time to give a simple treat, brownies, for our professors, proctors, deans, campus staff & security guards. This is our way of appreciating them and thanking them for their hardwork for the whole semester. We encouraged them and prayed for them as they continue to train the next generation of leaders in the campuses.

in Matthew 18:19-20, “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.“

Prayer is a very vital part of doing campus ministry. As Every Nation Campus Caloocan, we do prayer meetings in different campuses every week. We make sure to saturate the campuses first with our prayers and eventually saturate them with the Gospel. One of the unforgettable prayer meeting we had was happened on the first week of this month and let me share to you the story behind.

During our prayer meeting, I became emotional as I see in front of my very eyes, students with child-like faith, perseverantly asking our Father in heaven for the salvation and restoration of their families. Please allow me to share to you some of what they prayed for, If I may.

"LORD, I PRAY NA 'YUNG TATAY KO, TANGGAPIN NA NYA AKO. NA SANA HINDI NA NYA AKO ITURING NA BASURA. I PRAY NA MA-SHARE KO 'YUNG GOSPEL SA KANYA AT MAG ACCEPT SYA." (NON-VERBATIM)
"I PRAY NA MAGKASAMA-SAMA NA KAMING MAGKAKAPATID, KAMING BUONG PAMILYA, AT MAKABILI KAMI NG BAHAY. NA HINDI NA NAMIN KAILANGANG MAKITIRA NG MAGKAKAHIWALAY PARA MAY MATULUYAN KAMI. AND DARATING YUNG ARAW NA SABAY SABAY KAMING MAGWOWORSHIP SAYO AT MAGBABASA NG BIBLE. (NON-VERBATIM)

Many students today, came from broken families, that's why we want to disciple them and make them part of our Spiritual family. When students started praying for their family members to be saved, we know and it confirms that our labor is not in vain. It confirms that as we disciple the students, their families will be saved as well. They will be recipients as well of the Gospel that we received.

Thank you so much for always praying and partnering with us. We are excited to see students & families being added to our church because of our audacious prayers! We believe that prayer is the foundation to any work of evangelism in the campuses and in our families. Prayer is our key to God's door. It is the power behind, in the midst of, and in front of the faith.

"And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him." (1 John 15: 5)
