August and September are months filled with talks, events, and sharing. Since my page “Lee Miyaki” existed, I’ve been receiving some invitation from my fellow youth ministers (from other parishes). They’re usually inviting me to give a talk to their parish youth ministers. I am thankful.
This role is a huge responsibility. Words are powerful. Whatever I say, may/might affect their life. I am always nervous an hour before my talk. I really don’t know, but I guess being scared is normal, right? It’s a mere reminder that I can always work for my betterment? Ganern?
My first talk was last August 25, in Immaculate Conception in Vista Verde Executive Village, Cainta, Rizal. I spoke about Servanthood to their new youth ministry members.
It was a huge crowd. They were so energetic and vibrant. They’re so alive. One of them even cried upon hearing my sharing. His friends told me, he could really relate.
My second talk was last September 7, in St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows in Marikina City. The talk was about Love and Commitment. I really questioned myself if I am worthy enough to share about ‘commitment’ and ‘love’ when I myself almost gave up on love.
My last sharing/facilitating/assisting so far, was last September 14, for Write Things which happened at Fully Booked, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. Basically, I assisted some kids in writing poems, gave feedbacks, and comments on their work.
Aside from that, our Parish Youth Ministry held three huge events: Parish Youth Ministry Got Talent, Live Pure Series Presents: Chastity, & Youth Night. It’s never easy preparing everything for these events. But, God made everything possible.
I am grateful for all these things. We wouldn’t do it without God’s providence. Thank God for the never-ending opportunities. I know, I am not worthy. I am a sinner, isang makasalanan at judgmental na tao. Buti na lang mapagmahal ang Diyos. Never siyang sumuko. 🙂
Thank God for a meaningful life. I hope you, whoever is reading this, may find your purpose, too.
