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.
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.
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.
