Hello, my name is Alee. After months of praying, I finally started a Victory group in July this year to help our morning services at Panco Square. I live in Valenzuela City and I find it strategic to serve in that location so I can also engage friends and family.
Indeed, God is faithful. I was able to form a Victory group because one by one people started attending. I was able to invite Jonah, my high school best friend; Tine, a high school and college schoolmate; Cherry, Jonah’s friend; and Marj, whom I engaged through Get Connected Cards. They were all willing to do One2One and at first I admit that I was overwhelmed. How in the world will I do One2One with all of them? I had no idea but I simply started doing it because I saw their spiritual hunger and it motivated me to fight for every opportunity to do so.
Seven chapters each. Four individuals.
If not for God and with His grace, I won’t be able to go this far. He made me see and appreciate the beauty of my season. As a single professional, I know I have the time. The only challenge is how I manage it. God aligned me towards the goal: to go and make disciples!
I never expected this kind of growth in a short span of time. I had my personal problems to deal with and I was in the process of healing. But it is true that when you submit your pain to Jesus, He will sustain you for His purposes.
In November 9-10, these four ladies I discipled went through Victory Weekend together. There I witnessed how they became bolder in their faith. Hearing them tell their stories made me praise God for His goodness. I cried when I saw them being baptized as a group. I was out of words!
Few days ago, all four of them also attended the first session of Purple Book Class. I can’t wait to see them discipling others and being established more in the faith, in the Word, and in the church. As for me, I look forward to meeting other young women and helping them in their walk with Jesus.
