This weekend, I facilitated the evaluation and planning session of the DRYM team (Davao Redemptorist Youth Mission team which was held in our beach house in Dasag, Samal Island. There were seventeen participants. On Saturday morning, seven members of the team joined me in biking towards the place - after crossing to the island on the ferry boat.
I really enjoy being with the members of the Youth Mission team and working with them. I helped train them since 2002 and they have been active helping organize the youth program in the parish and the BECs. They are all volunteers, some are still students and some have graduated and are now working as teachers and nurses. Recently, I trained them to facilitate the BEC youth fellowship seminars - an evangelization seminar for young people at the grassroots communities. Every year during the Mindanao Week of Peace, they provide assistance for the Bike for Peace which I organize.
