How has Young Life impacted you as a staff member?

• Young Life has been God's instrument for me to take big and daring leaps in life. Being an Area Director made me realize that there is so much more to learn about myself, about this world, about the people in it, and about my true purpose and responsibility in this temporary place. It taught me to go beyond what I thought was my capacity and calling because I realized that I was not just called, but I am chosen—chosen to be in this amazing team. This is certainly a very magical place to be. The big and daring leaps are all worth it, and will always be worth it.

How has Young Life impacted your community?

• Young Life has been very helpful in all 5 communities under Cebu-North. We offered real friendship and quality time to locals alongside different programs that help teenagers live better lives. The activities/events/programs offered are always rooted in introducing the life and love of Jesus Christ. We try our best to follow it up with consistent visits/communication so that we all grow together in our relationship with the Lord. All these are given for free, and as much as they are blessed with what we do, we are more blessed with the genuine friendship built and the changes that were made within each other's lives.
