ENCOURAGEMENT. Our days were filled with moments of meeting new students from different grade and year levels. It was a joy to have a glimpse of their life stories and be a part of their lives. We used these opportunities to speak encouragement and prayer to them.
ONE2ONE. We were intentional as we visit the campus daily. We wanted these students not just to have a company of friends but a long lasting relationship with Jesus.
LEADERSHIP. We are truly grateful to these men for their leadership. They used their skills and their strengths ti willingly and joyfully serve the campuses and the church.
TEAMWORK. The team was composed of missionaries from General Santos, Davao, Dipolog, Cagayan de oro and Iligan. Though each of us came from different places with different cultures and backgrounds, our passion to love God and love Others united us into a common goal of reaching out to the campuses by preaching the Gospel.
Radical Faith: A Testimony
Nicole is the student in the middle
We live in a world who think in view of religion and not through the lense of a relationship with God - but that's about to change. This is a story about Nicole. She has been a Christian for more than a year but for some reason, she was afraid of letting her parents know about her relationship with God for fear of persecution. She was faithful in helping us in the campus when it comes to discipleship but she was afraid to let others know about it. The night before we depart from Bukidnon back to our home towns, she texted me and here's what she has to say:
"Gaduha-duha man gid ko ato kay gakahadlok lagi then pagkabasa nako atong perfect love casts out fear, it's like gi-ingnan ko ni God na time na para i-conquer na nako to na fear through Him. Starting today, dili na ko maglie sa akong parents and I'm already beginning to see naman kung unsa akong life both sa campus ug sa balay. I know that God will heal my mom's broken heart, slowly and surely. I'm glad that I was able to finally break through this situation after one year kapin."
Though faced with persecution, Nicole is still honoring her parents and is still growing in her relationship with God. The GOSPEL truly changes hearts.
Thank you for helping us take God's Words further.
This will never be the same without your partnership with EVERY NATION CAMPUS.
