After the World Singles Congress in Subic, Zambales last March 1-3, 2013. I asked the Lord, what now after this event? Because I want more of you God and I want more of your love. Then He answered me, “Join the road trip mission”.
I started to plan-out and think of the best place for my first Road Trip mission. The only place that enter my mind was Dumaguete City. I started to research through internet and asking some friends and brothers and sisters in the community about the beautiful land marks, best tourism sites, and events happening in that place. But I realized later on that the posture of my heart for this mission is wrong and I’m glad that God took control and His will prevailed. I was praying to experience God in this mission and He blesses me with an invitation to serve in Antique. I know that God enables me to understand that the road trip mission is not just about the place, the adventure and it is definitely not a vacation. It is all about Him, discovering the Love of God and that is what I really wanted.
June 1-2, 2013 there was a scheduled Compressed SFL Christian Life Seminar in San Jose de Buenavista, Antique. The whole event was a success and we are all very happy to welcome our new brothers and sisters in Christ. I’m glad that I was called and chosen by the Lord and I praise God for letting me become a mission volunteer in that area, I know the place is not my first choice, but following God’s will simply is the best thing I did.
I believe in His plan for letting me do this mission. As I serve Him I just pray for a deeper relationship and understanding of the Lord, and to discover His great love for me everyday of my life. Amen.
“For the Lord said, I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than your did at first. Rev. 2:19.”
