A Shot to Train the Next Generation

A Shot to Train the Next Generation

As we make a commitment to invest in the next generation, God continually gives opportunities for our church to be a blessing to today’s youth. One of the unique doors that opened for us recently was a chance to train and inspire boys in Barangay San Antonio, Quezon City, who are passionate about basketball.

One of our Victory Group leaders noticed that a lot of kids play in the basketball court of Barangay San Antonio every Saturday afternoon. When our team in Quezon Avenue served through medical services last September, they also blessed the community by doing a basketball clinic in the afternoon.

Our Victory Group leaders organized workshops and invited Dondon Hontiveros, a professional basketball player, to train and inspire 60 participants. Dondon encouraged them by sharing the lessons he had learned in his journey as an athlete. He also highlighted how God made it possible for him to be excellent in basketball without compromising his studies. 

The participants of the basketball clinic were moved by the stories, and all of them ended up accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior that day! Some of them even started attending our youth services.

We are thankful to Barangay San Antonio for allowing us to bless the youth in their community through this project. We look forward to more opportunities to touch the lives of young people in our nation!

Building Healthy Communities in Pasig and Quezon City

Building Healthy Communities in Pasig and Quezon City

As a church, we believe that we have a part to play in building our nation. There is still so much to be done in the Philippines, but we are in faith that every contribution will lead to transformation.

Two months ago, God opened an opportunity for us to engage the communities of Barangay Kapasigan in Pasig and Barangay San Antonio in Quezon City by providing free medical consultations, dental services, eye check-ups, medicines, and vitamins. A hundred volunteers in Pasig and 142 volunteers in Quezon City, many of whom are doctors, nurses, optometrists, dentists, businessmen, BPO employees, housewives, students, and senior citizens, came together to serve the community with their skills and resources.

 

 

In total, 155 residents in Barangay Kapasigan and 455 people in the Barangay San Antonio community received medical services. We were grateful to see policemen, barangay officials, tricycle drivers, housewives, street vendors, employees, and students being blessed not only by the services, but also their interactions with our church community. We were privileged to also minister to persons needing counseling, and had the opportunity to share the love of God and the gospel with them.

 

 

It was a fruitful time and a moment of mutual encouragement for our volunteers and the barangay communities. We pray that, more than the medical services, the communities saw the Great Physician at work in and through the lives of His people. We are thankful to Barangay Kapasigan and Barangay San Antonio for letting us serve their communities. We would also like to thank all our volunteers who selflessly gave their time and effort for this activity.
