post YOUTH CAMP 2007 prayer :)

Dear God,

In behalf of the San Isidro Labrador Parish Youth Ministry core group and animators, thank You so much for making the Parish Youth Camp at Nangka Court last June 1-2 a success after what seemed like endless flowing of our blood and sweat (and money) just to prepare for the big event.:)

It was nearly postponed indefinitely due to lack of resources and manpower but we finally decided to push through with it before the summer's gone, by hook or by crook.:) We thought that more young people would be able to participate during the vacation, rather than during the overwhelming school days. [ reason for this is that they might not be allowed by their parents to partake in the youth camp, well...most parents (and the youth themselves) do not understand that spiritual affairs are just as important as academic ones...ya I know that's a different topic, I should write something about that in my future post :)]

Anyway, thank You God for guiding us through the 2-week preparation time. Thank You for the wisdom, strength and talents. Normally, an event like the camp would have been impossible to organize well with such short span of time but with Your help, we were able to make it!

Thank You Lord for the people who gave their all-out their support, our parish priest, Fr. Vanni, the Parish Pastoral Council headed by Tita Rose, Tito Zinx, who lent his LCD projector, Kuya Eric and the barangay people, Kuya Mel (for the speakers that were never used, so sorry po for that :)), to Rowee of Ampid and Noel of immaculate Heart Antipolo for teaching the animation, to the former PYM ate's and kuya's, to our friends esp. Fern, Timo, Patis who came and fulfilled their noble purpose, to our "lovers" (haha) who gave moral support, to our parents who never questioned our church work and to everyone whom I've failed to mention but will always be recipients of our sincere gratitude.

(NO THANKS by the way to the sound system people for such so-so performance and for asking for additional payment after agreeing with a certain amount before the event started!:()

Thank You God for bringing in 120+ young people (a number coming from neighboring parish Ampid:)), making us surpass our target number of participants. Though not everyone stayed til the Holy Eucharist the morning after, we fervently wish that somehow, they've realized what we want them to realize, that You love everyone so much despite the sufferings encountered in life.

Thank You God for giving us the opportunity to be of service to the young people of the parish through this youth camp. Our efforts may not be appreciated by some, we know that what we just accomplished is all for Your greater glory.

Personally, I'd like to thank You for the young people who responded to the call to become core group members and animators of the SILPYM, without them God, yours truly wouldn't be able to survive as coordinator.

Thank You God, thank You thank You! I can't thank You enough...we can't thank You enough.
Til next time God, we know You'll always be there for the young people of San Isidro Labrador Parish and beyond.:)
