Every year, Living Waters Asia conducts a retreat for high school graduating students of Notre Christi Academy of the Philippines. The aim of the school is to prepare its students for the next stage in their lives, college life. LWA's aim is to share the Gospel to them. This year's retreat happened last Sept. 3 to 5 at Falcon Crest Resort at Norzagaray, Bulacan. The theme was "Preparing for the jungle called College Life".
There were talks about fads in college that are deceptively dangerous, peer pressure, as well as worldviews taught in college courses that deny God's existence. In every session and morning reflection time, LWA gave significant emphasis on the Gospel. And the results are so encouraging. There were students that personally thanked us for talks we did. There were those who voiced their contemplations on their realizations of their true standing before God. There was even one that right after she got home from the retreat, sent a question about a topic LWA did about Hell to the facebook account of the LWA managing director.
God only knows what the final fruits will be of this retreat. We did our part and we now leave the work to Him. Please continue to pray for the students.
Last August 17, we did a Way of the Master seminar at Glorious Covenant Ministry, Guiguinto, Bulacan. The rain that day was pouring hard and the LWA facilitator for WOTM seminars, Dennis Mark Aglosolos, Managing Director of LWA, was sick for the whole week. But those things did not stop what was scheduled for that day. The LWA team braved the storm and shared to Christians how Jesus, Himself, shared the Gospel.
This seminar was because of a Christian from another church that attended a WOTM seminar we did last year at Malolos, Bulacan. She was so convinced that what LWA was teaching is the biblical way of sharing the Gospel. And so, she endorsed it to her friend who is a leader of this church in Guiguinto, Bulacan. The leader went to personally meet Dennis Mark Aglosolos at the LWA office to arrange this seminar.
We thank the Lord for Christians who take steps to promote something that is clearly God's way of doing things. We hope others who have attended our WOTM seminars in the past will do the same.
After the huge evangelistic crusade in San Miguel Bulacan last August, CFCM now begins its Children’s Values Formation Classes(CVFC) in several schools in Bulacan and Candaba,Pampanga, CVFC is a thirty minute values formation class held on elementary and high schools once a week where Bible stories, memory verses and songs are taught. We made this possible by partnering with the nearest Bible believing churches around.
To date, CFCM has presence in 44 public elementary and high schools all over Bulacan and Candaba, Pampanga. More or less, twenty thousand pupils and students hear the Word of God weekly because of the dedication and industry of our 105 volunteer-teachers coming from twenty different Bible believing churches. Psalms 133:1 says “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Truly, the Lord is pleased when His children unite for His glory.
If you have a heart in reaching school children in your area but don’t have the means, training and materials, please let us know. We will be glad to extend our helping hand to you and be a part of the growing ministry of CFCM.
To God be the glory!
