2013 SEAL Weekend

S.E.A.L. stands for... Strong and Empowered Army of the Lord

It is an annual activity of the Singles for Christ community in preparation for the C.L.P. season - Christian Life Program.

Last year I attended the SEAL Weekend in Compostela Valley - click here to see the article. 

This year, the venue was in Seagull Mountain Resort Buda. We took the non-air rural transit and it took us more than 3 hours to reach our destination. Sadly, we missed the first talk.

The place was perfect for a reflective mood. Peaceful, Quite and Tranquil. And since it's 4,000+ feet above ground level, the temperature is definitely cold.

This year's SEAL Weekend core subject is "FILLING THE CUP TO THE BRIM". This is a call for everyone to pray to be blessed and upon being blessed we are given the opportunity to share to others. And it is difficult to share if we are empty, unpolished and broken jars. That's why we need God's eternal overflowing love to fill us.

2 Timothy 1:8-12

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me.
