Pray for the Resumption of Face-to-face Classes

Pray for the Resumption of Face-to-face Classes

Among the initiatives presented during President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. ‘s first State of the Nation Address (SONA) was his plans for the education sector. President Marcos Jr. backed up the Department of Education’s commitment to the resumption of 5 days of in-person classes, and was met with different reactions. According to him, he and Vice-President Sara Duterte are already preparing for its implementation in this coming school year. 

In his SONA, President Marcos Jr committed to put an end to the “horror stories” of poor educational materials by equipping students with the best the government can provide. He adds that the administration will not thrift on the country’s budget for the education system, allocating a budget for children to connect to the internet and have access to computers and educational tools. This includes aiming for better international rankings in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, and forming skills and knowledge that are crucial for young people in the highly competitive and technological world. 

Teachers were also assured by providing them with refresher courses and re-trainings to adapt to the current educational landscape. While the plans are still yet to be fulfilled, our hope lies in what God will continue to do in the lives of our future leaders. 

Today, as we pray for our education system, let’s be reminded that the young people of this generation will be the future leaders of our nation. Let’s continue to speak blessings in their life and encourage them to pursue the purpose they have in Christ. Let us declare Acts 2:17, and be expectant to see how God will use this generation, and how He will be the one to grow and move in them.

“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams…” – Acts 2:17

We know that we can never underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of our youth.

Real LIFE to Conduct National Scholars’ Conference

Real LIFE to Conduct National Scholars’ Conference

From October 24 to 26, 2016, more than 260 Real LIFE Foundation scholars from Metro Manila and the provincial areas will gather for their annual National Scholar’s Conference. This event aims to equip the scholars for L.I.F.E. (leadership, integrity, faith, excellence) and to encourage them in their faith.

The conference is also a great opportunity for our Real LIFE scholars to be connected, build relationships with fellow scholars from other Philippine cities, and be inspired to make a difference in their own ways.

The scholars will hear from different Victory pastors, namely Pastor Joseph Bonifacio, who will talk about leadership; Pastor Gilbert Foliente, who will speak about integrity; Pastor Joey Bonifacio, who will expound Huddle copyon faith; and Bishop Ferdie Cabiling, who will tackle the topic of excellence.

There will also be workshops focused on different course tracks like engineering, accountancy, communications and information technology, and business management. These sessions will be done in a classroom set-up, with the goal of preparing our students for their respective fields after graduation. Every Nation campus missionaries will also speak to our high school scholars about identity, character and developing good habits.

We are in faith that when our Real LIFE scholars go back to their respective homes and campuses after the conference, they will be refreshed, energized, and encouraged to live lives of leadership, integrity, faith, and excellence, and inspire others to do the same!
