Every Nation Campus Change the Campus. Change the World.

What we do for a single person will eventually have a Bigger impact to many, like a single spark that will spread rapidly And become a wildfire.

Julian Russel Ganacias is a Maritime student of PAMMA - Pangasinan Merchant Maritime Academy.

He's a first year student when I first met him in our Sunday service. I am amazed by this man because of his heart and compassion with the people around him. When I started setting an appointment with him to share the One2One (a seven chapter discipleship guide to help people follow Jesus), it became a Victory Group (an avenue to share the word of God and lives together) for he didn't go to our meeting place alone, he brought his three classmates with him. It was an awesome time talking about their Identity in Christ. In that moment, I knew that God began to open the door of opportunity in the campus of PAMMA.

July 2015, our first meeting for one2one that became a Victory Group

From that day on, he serves as my partner in preaching the Gospel in the campus of PAMMA - He's the one who invites more people in our group and I'm the one who shares Jesus to them.

Week after week, we grew in number by the grace of God through the life of Russel. I believe these things happened not by mere chances but for a reason - God's ultimate purpose.
In November 2015, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. And got baptized with four more students from PAMMA. From that day, He became very passionate in reaching other students in his campus for Jesus.

Sharing One2One to Michael.

He started sharing his faith to one of his classmates - Michael Villaluna, but it's not easy at first. He experienced rejections and struggles along the way. But yet, he is patient and dedicated in bringing him to Christ because of the fire of God that consumes and strengthens him every single day. After how many meetings with him, the seed that he planted in the heart of Michael started to grow and God eventually transformed this young man. Last March, Michael declared Jesus as his Lord and Savior and was Baptized.

Michael and other students from different campuses of Dagupan got baptized during our Victory Weekend (Victory Weekend is about establishing strong spiritual foundations in our lives. This two-day retreat helps us deepen our relationship with God and focus on establishing the spiritual foundations necessary for a life-long walk with Him.)

He continues the work of God up until now and more students are pointed to Christ by the overflowing love of God through this man.

Sharing the Gospel not only in his campus but also in his home town - La Union. Sharing his faith to his former classmates in High School every weekend.

Now he is leading his own Victory Group. I am amazed by how God transformed this young man for his wonderful plan and glory.

Today, he is one of our fruitful and passionate leaders in the campus ministry. Another school year will be hitting this June, I'm excited for what God has in store for Russel as he enters his second year in his campus - PAMMA.

I asked him one time, 'what is your top one prayer for this season?". And I was amazed with his answer: "To have more disciples". And I believe he's saying this not for his own glory but to honor and obey God for His glory

This is just one of the many things that God is doing in the Campus Ministry. And these won't be possible without the grace of God and without your faithfulness in prayer and support for this ministry. In behalf of Russel and the rest of the students of PAMMA - THANK YOU!
