P'lok Pinoyz Spiritual Survival Camp 2011

P'lok Pinoyz
The Filipinos in Phitsanulok and neighboring provinces initiated the first "spiritual survival camp" at Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park in Nakon Thai District, Phitsanulok on September 3 and 4, 2011. The camp which lasted for two days was a blast as the 39 attendees shared moving and worth pondering insights and life experiences. "We may be different in some other aspects (belonging in three religious sects), yet united in so many ways. That is to thank, serve, and glorify the LORD!" One of the members was quoted saying.

Day one activities include consecration, team building, trust walk, and war game. The consecration left most of the attendees in tears as sharers reflected about the things or people we might left, come the time of meeting our creator. Next was the team building which made each group member closer to each other and learned valuable life experiences. After that was the trust walk which reminded us that even if we can't see (being blindfolded), if you listen to the voice within and give your full trust to HIM you will find your way even in the darkest places. And the last activity done was the war game. It was a kind of game which taught to protect and defend something priceless in your life. For if taken, it's like everything about you is taken as well.

Day two activities were also a lot of fun. It was a morning full of bones cracking as they were being stretched in the let's get physical challenge. After that was the morning devotion at the rock nodules where again, sharers made everyone in tears. Although getting there was slippery and steep, the nodules were amazing plus the panoramic view of the entire place. A pure testament that HE is always around. Next to it were the sound of people running and shouting as the hunt for treasure started. Unity and determination made the white team arrived victorious in the treasure hunting game! Great job! Finally, just right after lunch, the book of life was read in the assembly. All people who made good deeds were commended but those who did the opposites were punished. :) And just before we head off, we gave evaluation forms to all the participants. According to the result, the first ever spiritual camp of P'lok Pinoyz was satisfactory, getting 8 out of 10 with 10 being the highest. Not bad for a start!

We would like to thank the P'lok Pinoyz Officers headed by Ms. Leah Doysabas. You guys rocked the camp! Special thanks goes to all the speakers, sharers, team leaders, and all the participants as well. Without you, this won't be made possible. Thank you once again and may GOD bless us all!

Special birthday greeting goes to Leah, Alex, and Edmund. And thank you for sponsoring our meal. It was so generous of you. Till next time! Mabuhay kayo!
