May 8-10, 2017 // Marks the end of our mission. Last destination: Boracay. Here we celebrated the success of our mission trip, a few birthdays (some advanced hahaha), and mother's day. We also shared what we've experienced and learned throughout the trip. I thank God for the amazing team that He put together, though it was our first time meeting some members, it felt like we've known each other for so long. There was unity and love for one another. Well, this is the last of my mission posts! Until the next one! 2020! Claiming it! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ God's got some big things in store for the future and I'm excited to see what's to come! #youthmission2017
May 7, 2017 // Throughout our mission trip, our whole group experienced different forms of transportation. We rode tricycles, buses, different kinds of boats, planes, and jeepneys. In my entire life I wouldn't have imagined I'd experience every type of mobility within a week lol.  JNCIM Iloilo was the last church we visited during our mission trip. There, we had a chance to spend time with the Iloilo church community. We played some games with the kids, shared the word of God, ate some fresh oysters, and spent some time writing down the things we are thankful for and the things we want to ask God in prayer. Though this was not the end of our mission trip, we had some closing remarks during the Sunday service. We gave thank and glory to the One who made this all possible, our Father in Heaven. And until today, I will forever be grateful and remember the things God had shown me and let me experience during these 10 days. #youthmissiontrip2017
May 5, 2017 // Day 2 in Culaba, Biliran. And the fun continues! This day last year I experienced to be a kid again. We played langit lupa (heaven and earth), duck duck goose, and we just careless and free. During our time in Culaba, we got to spend some time with the kids from the community there. Although there was a language barrier, they spoke Waray and we spoke Tagalog, things still went pretty well. It was a blessing to have someone with us who was fluent in Waray. We shared what it meant to Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.  That day was filled with different experiences. We had morning breakfast (ate lots of suman latik) and devotion by the ocean. We also managed to fit 10 people in a tricycle, hahaha only in the Philippines. And we conitued to see God's blessings upon our activities. One thing that was consistent during our mission trip was that it would rain after each of our sessions. It would rain heavily for 5-10 minutes and then it would disappear as if there was no rain at all. The skies would clear and the sun would come out. It was our assurance that God was blessing the places we visited and He was pleased. #youthmissiontrip2017
May 4, 2017 // MacArthur and Culaba. This was my favorite part of the whole mission trip. It was the most heart warming and humbling experience. Here I learned to appreciate the simple things in life. I will never forget the joy in these kids' faces when it was time to eat the simple meal that was prepared infront of them. The joy they had when they received school supplies and small snacks. The joy they had while playing outdoor games with other kids in the neighborhood. And for sure that joy was extended unto the heavens when these kids decided to accept Jesus as their Lord and saviour. One part of this day that really stuck to me was when we were giving out boxes of crayons and we didn't have enough to give out to all the kids that showed up. To see some of them crying when they found out there weren't anymore crayons left made me wish we could teleport back to Canada and bring a whole luggage full of crayons so we can give one to each of them. God showed me His heart that day and it will forever stay with me.  #youthmissiontrip2017
May 3, 2017 // Exactly a year ago was the last day of our youth camp. This was the very first leg of our mission trip and it was definitely something we did not expect. Here I learned a new definition for passion - to be contagious. I've never met a group so passionate for the Lord before. They definitely were examples of Mark 12:30. During these first three days of our mission trip, God really took me out of my comfort zone. Lead worship for the very first time without a guitar, became a team leader to the most supportive and energetic group of people, and spent all day outside under the scorching hot sun. Although it was not what I was used to, it definitely was one of the best moments of my life. How can you not give it your all when you're surrounded by people who did anything and everything with their 110%. I remember going to the Philippines expecting to share about passion, but instead God brought me there to teach me what true passion really is. . . If you're still reading this, sorry for the long post but I think I'll be posting a few more of these in the next few days 😊 #reminiscing #tbt #youthmissiontrip2017
