I want to share God’s message not only for our chapter but also for each every one of you here. Our chapter’s struggling since day one of our CLS preparation. There’s a conflict with our schedules, lack of service team, fear of not having enough paraphernalia, support and participants for the upcoming event. Our chosen Bible verse for our CLS is from Matthew 14:27, “Take heart. Have no fear.” which tells us that we should be loving and brave in doing our mission. There are times that we forget and even ignore it because of the fears, doubts, oppressions and problems that we encounter. But God’s message to us is very consistent and He even gave us the opportunity to be here in CSW 2014 for us to remember His message and open not only our eyes but also our hearts. God wants us to have courage in every mission that we’ll be doing, not to be ashamed with our convictions, to trust Him whole-heartedly and focus on Him. God truly showed His greatness and love for us through this weekend retreat.
