To reaffirm the divine purpose bestowed upon these young missionaries through the ministry of their parents, the Ministers’ Children of Pentecostal Missionary CHURCH OF CHRIST (4th Watch) across the Philippine Archipelago had gathered to partake in the 1st Ministers Children Camp at the AATF Sports Complex, Malagasang II-D, Imus City, Cavite on May 16-18 with the theme “Honouring the Past, Treasuring the Present, Shaping the Future”.
In this 3-day event, the abundance of Spiritual Seminars and activities promoting camaraderie, sportsmanship, and acceptance towards Godly-purpose truly satisfies the enticement of the delegates. Bishop Arturo T. Ferriol, Ptr. Samuel S. Ferriol, Bro. Archie Ferriol, Sis. Gladys Quillao, Sis. Eunice Ferriol, and Sis. Rachel Ferriol administered power-sufficient and inspiring discussions and workshops that deepens the spiritual capacity and confidence of the participants to pursue their God-given calling.
In accordance to the goal of this camp in promoting camaraderie and sportsmanship, the campers were grouped into 10 teams with a corresponding colour and coaches. Yell Competition, Team Presentation, and the most awaited Amazing Race engages young missionaries in developing their moral, spiritual and physical aptitudes. Team Aqua grabbed the 1st Place in Yell Competition and Team presentation while Team Gray reach the top as they achieve 1st Place in the Amazing Race Competition.
To upgrade the spiritual aspects of the delegates, a series of open forum was accomplished. The open forum gave the participants chance to know the feeling of each other and create a support system where everyone can understand and cope with your feelings.
During the Camp Fire, MC’s renew their spirit as their different imperfections was converted into firewood in flaming up their spirit in serving the Lord.
Bishop Arturo T. Ferriol emphasizes that it is never an accident for the Ministers Children to be born as what they are now but God already arrange their pre-destination to be part of the Ministers Children, it is both a privilege and blessing to be part of the divine calling wherein only few are chosen to continue promulgating the words of God.
The success of the 1st Ministers Children Camp is indeed a manifestation of God’s wonderful promises in honouring the past, treasuring the present and shaping the future. (J. Caunca)
