“Out Of Our Comfort Zone”

“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new".
- Brian Tracy-

The Lilok Survival Camp was held at Mt. Romelo in Siniloan, Laguna last April 1-3 2014, with 12 youth participants from different urban poor communities, two Lilok staff, and two volunteers. The participants were taught on how to survive having limited source of food, cook rice in bamboo containers, make fire by using bamboo, open a canned good by just rubbing it against a rough rock and a lot more.

Below are the testimonials of the participants on what they have experienced and what learnings they got from Survival Camp.

My experience at the camp was lots of fun that lightens the heart, especially because of the mountain’s many waterfalls and the refreshing mountain air. And of course I also learned basic survival skills. We would sing around the bonfire at night. I could also hear nature, as God’s beautiful creation, speak to me. I will never forget the wonderful experience of joining the Survival Camp. -Christian Arsenal- Our mountain trek is unforgettable. The night before the climb, I was so excited that I could not sleep, but on that day, I experienced how difficult it is to climb a mountain in the heat of day with a heavy load. We passed through a deforested mountain side and steep pathways, but once we reached the summit, the beautiful view and fresh air took all my exhaustion away. We eventually arrived at the camp site, ate, and bathed in beautiful waterfalls. This was a very fun new experience for me, meeting new friends and of course, meeting God through His creation.

As we headed home, we took pictures and headed down the mountain together. At one point, we suddenly decided to run down the mountain, and we kept dropping our things. But the downward climb was much quicker as a result. It was so much fun! I hope I am able to do this again someday. -Andrea Joy Sabit- Through the camp, I once again witnessed and experienced God’s creation, clean rivers, bird song, fresh air, and the peaceful sounds of nature; things you will not experience in Manila. I was also brought out of my comfort zone and taught to be independent. I experienced how to light a flame using bamboo, which is rarely done now. It was difficult, but once you succeed, it is a joyous thing. At home, when we cook, the flame is instant. No effort is needed. It was also a wonderful experience to open a can using stones.That was really awesome! I also learned to eat vegetables such as ampalaya (bitter gourd) since this was the everyday menu. I am very grateful to Ate Chum and Kuya Condrado who organized the camp. They taught us to be independent and develop initiative. We had bonding moments by the campfire. This camp was the best, as the staff were flexible and did not distance themselves from the campers. Best teacher, best camp, best Ate and Kuya (older sister and brother). -Joel Baclayo-

Prayer Requests: Please pray for the upcoming Certificate in Youth Work and Certificate in Wholistic Ministry Training programs. We aim to have 15 participants for each program. The Annual General Assembly is coming up on the 5th of July, 2014. Pray that this will be a meaningful time for everyone and for wisdom as we elect new board members. In addition, Lilok is holding Alternative Learning System (ALS) classes every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Please join us in prayer for these out-of-school youths and that they will diligently participate in the lessons and prepare for the Department of Education ALS Accreditation & Equivalency Test this October. God bless us all! Condrad Pableo Certificate in Youth Work Program Coordinator
