Last August 6, 2018, the Verbum Dei teens from Cebu led a concert in Olango Island, 20 minutes boat journey from Cebu. For two years now, every third Sunday of the month, a School of the Word has been offered to the people of Olango by the Verbum Dei Family. Part of our Verbum Dei mission outreach in Olango has also been to give some recollections to the youth and couples as well as the distribution of school supplies, scholarships and Christmas gifts to the children of Tingo and St Rosa, in Olango.
This time, we, the teens, with the support of our dear parents group, delivered a concert as a way to proclaim God's gift of faith and work in each one of us, through music. With God's grace and mercy, the concert went very well. We were able to evangelize the people especially the teens and the youth in that place. Around 400 people attended this concert. In the middle of the concert, we invited all to have a moment of adoration. It was very powerful to see everyone in silence in adoration before the Eucharist.
I was one of the singers. For me, it was a very fruitful experience that I will always keep in my heart. The concert enabled me to meet and greet new people, being friends with them, and see them enjoying and receiving God's message of love, and of hope, through music
