Ministry Updates-JIL BC Events

Just concluded the Christian Youth for the Nations (CYN) Surrey Camp this past weekend with almost 30 delegates from JIL Surrey-Newton and JIL Surrey-Fleetwood. It was a three day event from Friday-Sunday using the facility of the JIL Prayer House in Mission, BC. This would be the 2nd batch as the CYN Vancouver had theirs a month ago.

I was assigned to speak in two different days, the opening session and the last session. But what strikes me the most was God's special move when young people are concerned. He pours and He really pours it out abundantly when youth are involved especially during ministerial sessions. It was doubly exciting when God showed up to manifest His awesome presence among the youth delegates.

Seeing them receiving the touch of God when prayed for is a wonderful sight to see. Truly, God is at work when He releases His favor in every seesion. Led by Jovi-Villanueva Binalla and Jayson Pingol, they've joined forces to bring together the CYN from the two JIL Surrey Churches to have an appointment with God. Together with the CYN and adult volunteer staff as well, they have done a great job. Congratulations to all of you for bringing the CYN to the next level. The Lord will bless you indeed.....But there's more to come!

Adding to an exciting weekend as well was a child dedication last Saturday in JIL Vancouver Church and the Thanksgiving Anniversary (12 years) celebration of JIL Vancouver Church 1 yesterday. It was a special day with Hawaiian theme all throughout. Nice eh!!

I spoke on the topic about "Expressions of Gratitude." Everyone expressed their gratitude to God's mighty favor for this church that gave birth to 5 congregations, namely, JIL Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby, North Vancouver and Vancouver 2. Special prayers were given to the leaders and workers of the church. Remember, God is not yet done with JIL Vancouver 1!

The special numbers were marvelous as rendered by the Children's, Men's and Youth. Congratulations to all the leaders, workers and congregation of JIL Vancouver 1 for sharing a milestone of another year of God's faithfulness. Aloha!!!!!

God bless and until next update!!!!
