Day 3 started as Pastor Rey Yton discussed the need for prayer in following the footsteps of Christ. Through prayer, the children of God are able to pray for God’s help to fulfill His will, ask for knowledge and receive it, ask for strength from God, and have an opportunity to pray for the sent ones of God.
After breakfast, Bishop Osinando Quillao’s seminar dwelled on sharing the sufferings of Christ: leaving glory in heaven, taking in human form, being a sim and a sinner for all, and giving life for all. Bishop Osinando emphasized that God’s sent ones in the Church also experienced sufferings when they abandoned everything which they consider as gain.
Bishop Domingo Ferriol offered encouraging words during the second seminar. He explained that God loves us because we are His creation. He emphasized the promise that things like persecution, famine, and danger will not cause us to separate from God because of His great love for us. This love moves us to endure trials and sufferings.
As the morning’s last speaker, Apostle Arsenio Ferriol left the campers with the truth that willingness to suffer is a mark of those who know God. Sufferings are also a way to test one’s knowledge of God.
During the afternoon seminar, Pastor June Alano shared his personal story of conversion and his experiences and hardships in evangelism. The eagerly anticipated yell competition followed the seminar. The large venue was filled with excited campers rooting for their respective contestants representing their locales.
“We keep what we lose” – Bishop Arturo Ferriol presented a unique perspective where the Church members should aspire to become professional servant-workers during Professionals’ Night. He encouraged them to become such by religiously attending Church services and partaking to Church activities just like students in school. The day closed with the delegates’ humble prayers of dedication to participating in the work of God.
