JOHN McMILLANS VISIT IN TAGAYTAY
Bro. John McMillan spent the Saturday night with us in our
humble home, then, he spoke before the assembly the following
day. He specifically explained how Gods grace works
in our lives as Christians receiving grace means
doing more for the Lord, instead of doing less. He said
that when we acknowledge Gods grace, this will fire
us to accomplish beyond the mediocre.
The Tagaytay Mission Team had the chance to listen to his
counsel which was centered on commitment and devotion to
the ministry catch the faith, love God and pass
this love on. He also emphasized that having a simple life
is also living abundantly depending on our focus
Of course, he presented the vision, mission, dreams and
the programs of Western Christian College and High School.
He encouraged and invited everyone who is interested to
participate in such an endeavor.
Though I spent a few hours with him, I know that he is a
man of character. I have just known him for a very short
time, but there were things he did that awed me:
First, he got the simple welcome note I placed at the table
in the room where he slept. I just wrote that to tell him
how honored we were to have him as our guest, yet, when
I found the note gone and was replaced with a gratitude
card I was truly moved.
Second, he was so humble and very appreciative of the services
we offered no matter how simple they were. I know
how our standard of living is much much below theirs, yet,
he never showed any discomfort. Instead, he acknowledged
every little thing that was done for him. Its awesome
to have guests like him a vice chancellor who is
Third, the breakfast we served was a simple Filipino dish.
He ate it without any sign of hesitation. And the best part
that he did, he appreciated it in his gratitude card.
Finally, I felt so comfortable the first time I met him.
There was no feeling of timidity for I felt that he was
a great guest (and he was, indeed).
Bro. John, thank you so much for visiting us. Though we
did not spend much time together, the memory you left with
us will inspire us always in the Lords work. May
God bless you, sister Carolyn and your school. Hope to see
you, once again, in the future.
