This was exactly what we did last Aug. 17-19. Notre Christi Academy of the Philippines again tapped LWA to conduct a retreat for their 70+ Grade 10 students. The venue was again at Falcon Crest Resort at Norzagaray, Bulacan. The event had everything that you expect from a youth retreat like indoor and outdoor games, singing, cheering, etc.
The theme of the retreat was simple... "Choices". Members of the LWA team took turns discussing to the students the choices they are presented around them, and the consequences of each choice. But we made them understand that the most important choice every person must make is between sin and God. We made them realize that the notion that because they're still young, they really should not think of their choice yet between the two is so wrong as death could come any time. Choosing to surrender to God, we emphasized, has with it the promise of forgiveness of sin and eternal life in Heaven. Choosing to continue embracing sin is dangerous as its end will be eternal suffering in Hell.
Please pray for the students. We saw during the retreat that there were several who intently listened to the talks we delivered. May the Holy Spirit continue to remind them of what we shared to them and convict them of their need of a Savior.
