CFCM Committee members and volunteer teachers
_ We thank the Lord for the very enjoyable and very meaningful joint outing of the CFCM committee members, volunteer teachers and Miss Lina Seastres from One Hope Philippines, at 100 Islands, Alaminos City last Dec 8,20011. Since we don’t pay the volunteer teachers, we seek to give them a special treat every December. Last year, we had a Christmas Program at a resort in Baliuag where everybody enjoyed the food, swimming, games, gift giving and most of all, the fellowship. This is our way of encouraging them to keep serving the Lord and to meet fellow volunteers in different areas. This year, we brought them to 100 Islands so that they could appreciate God’s amazing creation.
Tracts distribution before the island-hopping activity
_ The highlights of this event were the tracts distribution in the marketplace, the testimony time and the island-hopping and swimming activities. One of our committee members, Nanay Lina Vinuya- an elderly member, had a very frightful yet very blessed experience when she tried to give a man a gospel tract. The man tore it and spat on it and said he didn’t need such literature. Nanay Lina was then very shocked and frightened at first, until she was comforted by God’s words in Matthew 5:11 “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.” She said she is very happy in the Lord that she experienced such a thing. She understood that she was not the one rejected by that man. It was the Lord Jesus Christ that he rejected.
To all of you had a part in this event (financially, moral support and prayers) we would like to extend our deepest appreciation. Your labor is not in vain in the Lord (I Cor 15:58)
