One last look at One Life to Live

This past February’s One Life to Live series is one of the busiest activities we did this year. Cluster meetings with students, weekly seminars at U-Belt, youth and weekend services—all of which we discussed how each of us could really make every moment count.

            Our cluster meetings at Arellano were an amazing experience. For though the Nursing students, one of the busiest courses in this campus, were in the midst of a hectic month, our small group facilitators led by Daryl, Ryzthiene and fast-rising leaders like Marichu, Jeff Fua, Jhoey and Greg, brought along their classmates and friends during the four-week series.

            We started the first week with 33 students, and ended the series with 52, half of these were newcomers.

            It’s refreshing because while I got really tired physically, doing the talk, mentoring some of the upcoming leaders in the campus of Arellano, I am encouraged by the response of the students after each week. One student told me after the Loving Completely topic (Week 2) that she had decided to say “I Love you” to her dad.

           Another student related that sorry is a difficult word to say, but after realizing that he only had one life to live, this is the perfect time to ask for forgiveness from his parents, whom he has harbored bitter spirit for years.

            At Far Eastern University, we also held this series with the FEU Tamaraws, the Lady Tamaraws and also the FEU women’s volleyball players.

            Heard from Clarize, one of our hard working small group facilitators at FEU, that the women basketball players are not just having a fun time during their Saturday LIFE group meetings, but they are also realizing a lot of things through the OLTL topics.

            Even in the men’s team, Mark Barroca and future Team A players like

Brian Cruz, Fred, Ping and Jens Knuttel are starting to consider making their lives count.          One Life to Live—a moment of truth for a lot of people—and a moment worth remembering!
