"I believe that through the works of CFC ANCOP, we are able to care for and share our blessings to those in need"
Hi! My name is Angelique Alyzza “Lyz” Salcedo, and I am the North QLD ANCOP Ambassador. I joined the CFC community last 2010, and I have been serving in CFC Youth for Christ and CFC Singles for Christ.
Born and raised in a small town in North Cotabato Philippines, I’ve witnessed poverty beyond belief and have seen desperate situations that many poor families are immersed into, including very young children.
Having experienced a life of struggle as well, my family engraved in my heart the importance of humility and generosity. As my grandfather would always remind me, “It is nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice.”.
Last 2016, I visited the Philippines again after migrating to Australia for 3 years. In companion with CFC - Youth for Christ Oceania members, we went to an ANCOP immersion, where we spent 4 days in an ANCOP village in Calape, Bohol. We had the opportunity to witness the works of CFC ANCOP firsthand through an ANCOP-built village, the family beneficiaries and their children.
Ironically, it is us who have felt God’s overflowing grace through the love and hospitality that these families have shown us.
These experiences humbled me to the core, inspired me to go beyond my own needs, and ignited my passion - to serve and give back. Hence, when I was asked to become an ANCOP Ambassador, my heart knew straight away that my answer is “Yes!”. ANCOP – Answering The Cry Of The Poor, allows us to be a catalyst for change in one’s life. I believe that through the works of CFC ANCOP, we are able to care for and share our blessings to those in need. By providing education, the greatest gift that one can ever receive, we are able to give children and their families a brighter future.
As an ambassador, I am more than blessed to become an instrument of God’s mercy, to be able to radiate the gratefulness within my heart. I humbly ask you to join me and co-ambassadors as we proclaim and share this beautiful cause.
