AA for Melbourne
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor.” Luke 4:18
My name is Patrice Penas and I am representing the CFC North and Southeast Units of Melbourne.
At the start of 2016 I was very blessed to have been able to take part in the experience that is the Youth For Christ Great Adventure Tour in the Philippines. The immersion part of the Great Adventure Tour involved living in the ANCOP village of Calape, Bohol, visiting primary and high schools that were part of the ANCOP Cornerstone program. The ANCOP immersion allowed me to witness His kindness and mercy through the striking generosity of the villagers. Stripped of life's comforts, it was also a blessing to witness His joy through the open happiness of the children and the students. Coming back from such a humbling experience, I am all the more inspired and excited to be able to be an instrument of the same loving joy, kindness and mercy through this ambassadorship. To carry out our mission to ANswer the Cry Of the Poor. To give back to the God that keeps on giving, to the God that gave us His everything.
