As I write this post, the first day of the Kerygma Conference 2013 is just hours away. My husband and the other people behind the Conference have been preparing for it for months now, and I can’t believe how quickly time has flown. So many things have happened this year, to me, to our family, and to our country. Well, to our whole world actually.
And even as we Filipinos are banding together — along with many caring people from all over the world — to help rebuild the lives of many who have suffered calamity after calamity, I believe that we must remember that we cannot do this alone. Call me idealistic or “holier-than-thou” or whatever, but I believe that apart from God, our efforts will only be in vain.
We need His grace.
We need His strength.
We need His power.
And this, my friends, is what the Kerygma Conference this year is all about — Being Empowered.
If you’re free this weekend (or even later and Friday, too), I invite you to come and be empowered. Just click on the image above or here for more details. Part of the proceeds of the Conference will go to the relief efforts for the Typhoon Yolanda victims, as the Light of Jesus Family has also been providing aid and assistance to people in the affected areas.
I’ll only be able to attend the conference on Saturday and Sunday though — my kids are super excited to attend the Awesome Kids class on Sunday too! It will be about God’s Superheroes. If you want to bring your children, just register here.
Hope to see you there! If you see me walking around (hopefully not looking too “harrassed” with three kids in tow, ha, ha!), please do say Hi! 🙂 And if you won’t be able to come, please do include the Conference and everyone involved in it, and everyone attending, in your prayers!
