Hi Family and Friends,
Well…..it’s that time of year again….Summer. Is. Upon. Us!!!Summer has come in with a vengeance!! The actual temperature a few days ago was 102 degrees but the feels like temperature was 120 degrees!! I don’t have air conditioning at home but we do have it at Global, thank God for a cool office to work in during the day!!
Summertime also ushers in our Catalyst Leadership Academy!!! CLA is a total of 8 weeks for staff and 5 weeks for students. During those 5 weeks we train them in godly leadership skills. We celebrate Freedom Week!! We allow the students to be leaders during Youth camp week and Kids camp week, we have a fun and final week of relationship building and finish it all with a graduation followed by an Impact Concert!! This year we have a total of 40 students from all over the Philippines and we’re positive that a fun filled, action packed, excellent time will be had by all!!!
I’m looking forward to continuing my role as Worship Pastor this year. We have a team of 8 this year 6 returning worshippers and two new!! Their hearts, passion and pursuits of the Lord really push me to seek the Lord in a deeper way! I know I say that each year but it feels like it rings more, and more true as the years progress!
Love and blessings, Sherika
