Summer 2012 was surely an exciting season for LifeBox! Not only were youth camps held in various LifeBox centers all over the Philippines—they also held Regional Convergences in LifeBox centers outside Metro Manila.
Earlier this year, LifeBox conducted a North and Central Luzon Convergence and a South Luzon Convergence, gathering high school and college students from different campuses in these regions. These convergences were designed to encourage, equip, and empower LIFE group leaders to reach more of their classmates and friends for Jesus.
We’ve had the privilege of hearing a few testimonies from some of the students who took part in these events. Young as they are, they’re making an impact by sharing the gospel in their campuses!
“I thought that to effectively invite someone to a LIFE Group, I should be good in talking or conversing with people. Then it just hit me! It’s not about what we do but what God will do. There’s no technique or formula! Our job is to introduce them to Jesus and God will do the rest.”

“Hindi lang tayo basta students—tayo ang students na kayang gumawa ng pagbabago, tayo yung students na hindi ikakahiya si God at kayang ishare ang Word niya sa iba . . . Ready na ako bumalik sa campus namin at mag reach out, ready na ako na ipakilala si God sa (iba), ready na ako sa plans ni God para sa akin. Excited na akong mag inform ng tao at si God ang mag ta-transform sa kanila. Ready na talaga ako! (We’re not just students—we’re students that can make a change. We’re students that won’t be ashamed of God, and be able to share His Word to others . . . I’m ready to go back to my campus and reach out (to students). I’m ready to introduce God (to others). I’m ready for God’s plans for me. I’m excited to inform people about God, and He’ll take care of transforming them. I’m ready!)”

“LifeBox Regional Convergence made a big impact in my life. It’s not an accident that I was there. I realized that I have a purpose and God put me where I am right now because He has (great) plans for me. I want to leave a legacy in my campus . . . I want to share the word of God to the next generation.”

We’re excited to hear great news about more LifeBox centers opening in more campuses all over the Philippines! With that, more of the future leaders of our nation would be honoring God and making disciples, and in turn, reaching more campuses for Jesus!
