Koronadal City, popularly known as Marbel, is one of the delightful cities in the Province of South Cotabato where we were called to do mission again. Composed of young missionaries from the different places in Mindanao like Davao City, Gen San, and Sarangani Province, we were sent to this place last November 7-9, 2014 with hearts ready for our mission: to share Christ to the young people of God, the youth. Serving others in this community was not strange to many of us but deep inside our hearts, we were reassured that God will bring us again to another extraordinary experience our hearts and minds cannot fathom.
The first day of mission was spent for the preparation of the upcoming youth camp. In the afternoon, the YFL San Isidro-Marbel members had confession at the Christ, the King Cathedral and the Youth Camp Training was followed eventually to prepare them with the necessary things needed and to re-enstill in their hearts the importance of the said experience for the participants. More or less 30 youths said YES in serving faithfully our Lord to proclaim again how great He in their lives.
The next two days of the mission were devotedly dedicated to the youth camp with a theme “You are Chosen by God” at Marymount School of Koronadal, Inc. We were blessed with 33 participants who mainly came from the city and the YFL bring them again God’s love.
The CFC Youth for Family and Life “Chosen Youth Camp” was a really a reminder that no matter what the posture of our hearts right now and whatever we may experiencing, we are chosen by God for a greater life because he has an immense love and a merciful heart for his faithful servants.
Certainly, God is so great in commissioning the right people to do His mission!
