KAIROS REGIONAL TEAM COORDINATION MEETING & FACILITATOR TRAINING
We have been facilitating many KAIROS courses which helps us to mobilize and connect with many different churches and pastors. Last June, we officially joined the KAIROS PANAY team and underwent head facilitator training. Every 1st Wednesday of the month we host KAIROS PANAY meetings with the aim to invite more churches get involved in missions!
TFG (TEENS FOR GOD) : YOUTH DISCIPLESHIP & OUTREACH
Every Saturday we have outreach in Iloilo city with our volunteers. This is an avenue for us to invite them to join our Youth Discipleship (TFG: Teens for God) on Sunday. The more we introduce Jesus to this young generation, the more we are encouraged by their responses. They are so serious to know God and their identity in Him. We believe that we disciple the hope of the future for Jesus!
Every Thursday, we are so excited to meet the students from different universities (University of Iloilo, Central Philippines University, and TESDA). We meet at our base and call it “Campus gathering”. It seems like a mini DTS! We worship, pray, share ups and downs, teachings and sometimes have a workshop. After all this we have dinner and fellowship. This small number of students will be the 1st chapter of the book “Win the Campus, Win the Nation”.
Janice Maldevia (University of Iloilo 2nd year ) from Campus Gathering
“As a college student, I must stand firm on the word of God because this world is so wicked to deceive my life and to steal my dream. I really thank God for using YWAM Iloilo staff for teaching and encouraging my life purpose from God. Every Thursday lunch time I meet one of YWAM staff, her name is Andrea and my school mates at our school and we worship God and pray for each other and our school. I join YWAM Campus gathering after my class at the same date. Through this gathering I’ve learned a lot and tried to apply the teachings to my life to be a blessing to my classmates. Honestly, I had a lot of failures. During my 1st year, I failed seven subjects because I chose to follow earthly desires such as spending time at internet café instead of attending classes. Finally I failed and stopped going to school but the YWAM staff really prayed for me and encouraged me to restart again. God gave me one more chance and I restarted 1st year college and now I am already on my 2nd year. I know that there will be more challenges in my life but I can go through them with the help of this campus gathering. My Lord always helps me to make the right decisions! I tell myself, “Janice! Think wisely before making any decisions”!”
Angel Babes Polsario (Iloilo National City High School Grade 8 ) from TFG ministry
“Hi! My name is Angel, I am in grade 8. Through TFG discipleship and outreach, I have found my vision. Do you want to know it? I want to be a teacher missionary because I like to teach children and to travel to different places just like my YWAM teachers. I remember my first outreach to Barotac Viejo last July. At that time I introduced myself as “Ma’am Angel” to children and taught them Bible stories as well as helped them color. God bless you!”
