I wasn’t expecting much out of this trip except that it would be a great opportunity to meet up with fellow servant’s from all over Mindanao and share news and stories as regards to their progress in the evangelization efforts in their respective area’s, district’s or ministry’s. I reckon that there will be or should be a reporting of some kind for the us (the participants) to see where we are now in our work for God’s kingdom here in Mindanao.
All in all, I came to this conference basically “empty”, not much expectations so to speak… actually the emptying” came much, much earlier. And the experience proved to be “infilling” … in following our Lord by taking up our own cross (es), we must empty ourselves of everything… our luxuries, comforts, our worries and even experiences, practically everything. Because at every stop of our spiritual journey with the Lord, we are to be filled. Such as my “stop” here at Maramag. I went home re-energized, refilled and inspired at the urgency of doing God’s work here at our area.
Thank you Maramag, thank you Bro Gary and above all, thank you Lord for the “REFILL”. Looking forward to another Jesus experience next year. See y’all in Tandag City.
