Originally, I decided not to attend the 2012 Congress because I kind of felt lukewarm towards everything that’s happening in my life. Prior to the WSC, I have made up my mind of again, become inactive in the community and lay low for a time. But something just pushed me to attend the WSC. I was very auspicious that something special is waiting for me and thank God I followed my bliss. The Dare to Value workshop was meant for me. I believe that during the workshop, I was at the right place, right time and everything just seemed perfect. You know the saying, “It will all happen according to God’s plan and timing”, that was what I felt. I was teary-eyed and I was aware that I had goose bumps all throughout the sharing of kuya Pat Oconer but I didn’t know why. I had no tinge of an idea why I am so moved and dumbfounded. Ever since I graduated from the Christian Life Seminar on December 2008, I’ve been asking the Lord to bestow me the gift of discernment so that I can recognize what am I really called for. God answered my prayer and I experienced His affirmation during the WSC 2012: Dare to Live Congress.
Right now, I do believe that I am being called for the Life of Charity and just what our theme “Dare to Live” implores, I am now willing and daring to take a shot on being a KFL Misionero and a volunteer for Work with the Poor Program. Every time I write or share stories like this, God always seals it with a whisper–Jeremiah 29:11.
For all of this to God be the Glory!
