Miracle Experience... Faith Walk...

Have you ever wondered what it is like to leave each day in faith? My group sure had a wonderful experienced...

From the early days of the WYD program proper... our leader was already down with a temperature... she had to be confine at home where we lived... the group decided to forgo the Youth Festival "Urban Legend" talk for that day and to return home to accompany their leader, so fondly known as Carmie...

We bought food from the supermarket, and our group had a wonderful time bonding together and breaking the ice with one another.



Later that week... our cute little princess of the group had a bad sprain at her ankle... and this was the day just before the Pope's mass... she cannot even walk. can you imagine her morale? less to mentioned the group's morale. BUT, the spirit of the group did not die... we persevered and pushed on!! by God's grace, she was given a wheel chair by Friar George from the ASIANA Centre, where we lived...



From then on, our spirit's lifted and prayers got more powerful... our faith as a group and later the contingent grew in strength and solidarity... check out this video...



After a night of braving the cold and the Pope's mass... our group emerged victorious!! SATAN lost!!! We went against all odds!!





To top it all off... on the way back, leaving the race course... while everyone had to follow the human traffic and walk back along the pilgrim route about an hour to the train station.... our group was directed to the bus stop at the race course to be shuttled back to the train station!! WOW!! how cool is that!! we didn have to take that one hour walk back like everyone else did!!!



ALL PRAISE AND THANKS BE TO GOD FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!
