December 13 was the day we held our yearly Christmas party for the inmates of the provincial juvenile jail of Bulacan (we've been doing this for five years already). We had the usual singing of Christmas carols, fun games & food. But most importantly, we again declared the Gospel to the young inmates. Although LWA holds a weekly Bible study in this facility, we keep on repeating the Gospel message to the inmates until we really see all of them turn their lives to Jesus, and this day was no exception.
LWA also did another Christmas party on December 17 at their ministry office which also runs a student center. Although the party was for the regular attendees of the Bible study held every Friday afternoon at the center, LWA also invited non-attendees of the Bible study to attend the event w/ the hope that the Gospel message they will hear in the program will finally struck them deep in their hearts. Everybody enjoyed the carol singing part, the games and the food. But for the LWA team, the most satisfying part was the delivery of the Christmas message of reconciliation w/ God through repentance and faith on Jesus Christ.
The following day, December 18, LWA did a Christmas outing for the faithful Christian volunteers working to make sure the biblical Gospel message is delivered to as many people as possible. The venue was at the La Mesa Eco-Park at Quezon City. The day was for fellowship and for thanksgiving for how God helped and used LWA in 2010. There was a sense of fulfillment in the air as talks went around what everyone experienced during a whole year of Gospel-sharing and WOTM seminars. And as that day was drawing to a close, the team was in anticipation for what God has in-store for LWA in 2011.
This week was so tiring! But we are always happy to have served our wonderful God.
