Hello Guys My Name is Jheron, and I currently serve as YFC NSW ANCOP (ANswering the Cry Of the Poor) Ambassador for 2016.

So why did I become an ANCOP Ambassador? well I recently experienced one of the most life changing experiences for me- and that was to go to a Great Adventure Tour to Philippines. One of the Activities was a 4 days and 3 nights stay at an ANCOP Village in Bohol.  Living in that village showed me the most true and simplest joys that God can offer in life. 

I was truly blessed to have met such wonderful, welcoming people, and to also be hosted by the most humble and caring family.  It truly inspired me to become an ANCOP Ambassador, because I wanted to give them more joys in life.

On October 15 2013 Bohol was hit by an Earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2. Even to this day, there are still buildings going under repairs. Hearing from the families that survived in the Village, their stories and experiences; truly inspired me to help the people of Bohol (and for any country that experienced natural disasters like earthquakes). I want to give them a sense of Joy and Happiness- by raising money/fund raising-so that they may at least be able to live; have a shelter; to be nice and warm and comfortable and to be able to eat 3 times a day (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner).  BUT more importantly, to provide the people- good education for the future generations.

"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.

Mat 25:40 “ Amen I say to you, whatever you did for these least brothers of mine, you did for me”

Hi everyone, my name is Anthony Marasigan.

I'd just like to share why I said "yes" to being an ANCOP Ambassador. I recently went on a trip to Philippines and witnessed firsthand children suffering from extreme poverty and being forced to make a living in the streets everyday instead of having an education at school. I believe we are all here to be a catalyst for positive change and if we share our talents and resources we can make great changes to the lives of families in need. I firmly believe that we can make a difference, and with my acceptance of being an ANCOP Ambassador, I will do my utmost.
