YL Pilipinas Among Abing 🇵🇭

To all our dear friends and supporters,

Some of you might not be aware of this, but we have less than 6 weeks before 2023 ends. Crazy how time flies these days! With that being said, it’s crazy how so much has happened over the past 46 weeks. If you’re wondering what went on this past year, you’ll have to be a little more patient—we’ve got something special in store for everyone in a few weeks’ time!

In the meantime, we would like to bring your focus to the other side of the coin: the remaining days of the year. Believe it or not, despite being at the tail-end of 2023, there is still a lot of events in store for Young Life all over the Philippines!

Our staff and volunteers are still preparing for some year-end surprises for the many kids they’ve met throughout the year, and are getting ready for an explosive end to a wonderfully productive year of ministry.

For this week, we ask that you pray for the many activities the different YL Areas have in store for late November and the whole month of December:

  • Camps:

    • YL-Bigkis Camp (December 8-10)

    • YL Leyte’s Weekend Escapade (December 16-18)

    • YL Western Negros Booster Camp (December 28-29)

  • Christmas Big Clubs all over the country!

  • YL Philippines All-Staff Christmas Party in San Carlos City (December 18-20)

  • Year-end Trainings and Retreats in various areas this December

  • Contact Work in all our areas before the Semester closes

The days may be numbered for 2023, but that doesn’t mean the fun is about to stop! Please keep praying for our ministries, their activities, and their plans as they move towards another year of reaching out to every Filipino kid out there.

If you want to learn more about the different upcoming activities, please feel free to email us at [email protected]!

Mabuhay and Lahutay!

From all of us,

Your Young Life Philippines Family

Justified By Their Faith

by: Becky Yasi


Romans 4:5

“But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners.”


Seven years ago we were asked to share our personal opinions on why the lives of Abraham and David in Romans 4 were important.

I'd like to share with you what I wrote as I pondered upon these verses.

The lives of Abraham and David are so important for us to know because they illustrate how God pardons a guilty man because of their faith in God.

They both were promised salvation because of their faith and not because of what they had done. Their lives were examples of how a man's faith can make one righteous before God.

Abraham, a sinner like David and like all of mankind, is "the father of all who believe." Today, this implies that all who believe in Christ can have God's righteousness.

In Romans 4 we learned that Abraham received three things by faith:

  • God's righteousness

  • Inheritance

  • Generations after generations of believers to come after him (we are part of this)

To David, a grievous sinner, God said, "When you die, I will raise up one of your descendants, and I will make his kingdom strong." (2 Samuel 7:12). Raise up not another king, not another brave fighter, but mankind's Savior, Jesus Christ.

Despite all his shortcomings, David was a man after God's own heart not because of his charm, his being a good musician, his guts, his being a general, or even his being a king but because of his sincere repentance of his imperfections. He is honored even today both by the Jews and Gentiles.

These two life stories display God's loving mercy to man. Both stories tell us that whoever comes to God in full repentance of one's sin and believes in Christ as one's liberating king is pardoned and assured of salvation. They are justified by their faith.
