BETTER TOGETHER goodbye 2016, hello 2017!

Hello Ministry Partner! Thank you for sending us and investing in the next generation! Your prayers has given us strength for the past year and it has been an amazing journey. God has been faithful and has given us more opportunities than we can ever imagine and we can't help but celebrate and give thanks to God for everything He's done for 2016!

CHANGED LIVES

We thank God for the students who accepted and followed Jesus in their lives. Indeed the heaven is celebrating when a life is turned from darkness to light. This is the very reason why I love what I do; honor God and share the gospel, and watch how he transforms lives. Every person has a different story, background and struggle, but only the grace of God can bring freedom in their lives.

We had fun during our last Youth Service for 2016. We had food, games and loads of stuff prepared for our students, but my favorite was when the place was filled with students praying and encouraging one another. It was a beautiful sight!

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42

CAMPUSES

We thank God for open doors as we preach the gospel. It brings me great security that the God that we serve is a God who called us not only for his purposes but will gladly provide what we need and will go beyond by finishing everything before we even get started.

CAMPUS MISSIONARIES

"...And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?...." Romans 10:14-15

Vyne and I met at Life Academy-a summer music and arts workshop for students in Victory GenSan- last 2008. Back then she used to believe that there's nothing more to life, but when she knew her identity and security in God, she began influencing other girls of the gospel that changed her life.

Vyne, just finished School for Campus Ministry and is looking forward to go to the nations. She's currently leading GSC SPED integrated school and is also reaching out to her neighbor campus, Lagao National High school.

Jupeter, was the Kid's church administrator for Victory GenSan. He was in charged of our worship service for kids. He would often come up with strategies in leading these children closer to God. Eventually his passion for the next generation grew which led him to answering the call for full time ministry.

Together with Vyne, they were part of the 16th batch of the School for Campus Ministry. He is currently leading the region's science national high school in Alabel, Sarangani which is 17 kilometers away from GenSan. He's also helping out in the campuses within the city.

Odie, she's been a volunteer campus missionary for the past 8 years in Notre Dame of Dadiangas University. Even while she was working as a nurse and a medical representative, she tirelessly went out of her way to meet students in the campus day in and day out. It's a great privilege to be mentored by such passionate woman of faith.

For raising and influencing the next generation leaders for years, her desire to win the campuses did not waver--it kept on growing through time. Right now, she's engaged to our Regional Director for Mindanao, Ptr. Joppet Tan, a man with the same burning passion to reach the lost for Jesus. I am blessed seeing them dedicate their lives to go and make disciples in the campuses.

CO-LABORERS

I, myself was a product of campus ministry. A team of missionaries from Quezon City went to General Santos during my freshman year as a high school in Mindanao State University to preach the gospel through a Life Seminar. At first I was reluctant in everything that they were doing, but eventually, Ate Lyn, invited me to join a small group. From there, I came to know God, his heart for his people, and his unending pursuit for us to have a relationship with him.

Together with these incoming campus missionaries we are excited to train future leaders that will make a difference in our nation.

Throughout the years of seeing people work in the ministry, increased the desire in my heart to reach out to the people who are yet to discover the faith, hope and love that Jesus brings. After years of seeking God, I decided to be part of a movement that would invest in whatever way in the lives of young people, believing and rooting for them and their bright future.

The training is done, the school of campus ministry is coming up and the gospel that changes lives will go on transforming people from the inside out and it gets exciting as the day goes by. Thank you for co-laboring with me in this journey! You are definitely a vital part of this team. Your support and your prayers are bringing us to harvest fields God has called us to go. Thank you very much for taking this opportunity!!! I look forward to God's amazing grace and surprises for you this year!

Together, let's change the world, one campus, one student, one city at a time.
