An Evening of Restoration

The invite was sent out through text messages, by word of mouth, and e-mail. It called on every CFC member and leader to a night of prayer with the other faithful. It called on EVERYBODY who wanted to hear and heed the Lord’s direction for our beloved community, following events of the previous months which brought about tension in the community, which wounded brotherly and sisterly relationships as well. Though it was just a prayer assembly, specifically, a RESTORATION PRAYER ASSEMBLY, the organizers of the event were all hopeful that CFC members and leaders would all be eager to take part in it. The spirit was dampened, in a way, though not completely, when the Council issued a statement saying, that the prayer assembly has no approval of the CFC Council. Reactions poured. Still, God’s faithful held hands and continued to pray for a bounty of prayerful to attend the gathering.

God’s faithfulness, certainly, can never be outdone. On that Restoration Prayer Assembly held on Friday, July 13, 2007, at 7:30PM at the Parish Social Hall of Christ the King in Greenmeadows, Quezon City, the venue was filled to the brim. Never mind which cause one took on, but what mattered was everybody was ONE in prayer and discernment.

The gathering songs played made me reminiscent of what CFC life used to be. It was also notable how the original CFC logo was flashed. Paul Price, a very active YFC leader from Cebu, who later became a fulltime worker for SFC and the very first missionary sent to Africa, led the Opening Worship. Paul is now among the very passionate young couples serving the community with his wife, Denise Nillas – Price. They now have two very adorable sons, the eldest was born while Paul and Denice served as a missionary couple in Africa. Frank Padilla later gave a talk on how the Lord established CFC and developed it through the years, as well as our present journey in the spirit of Lamentations The talk was followed by an open forum. The event ended with a powerful worship led by Bambi Urgino, SOLD Member. The SOLD-OUT band provided great accompaniment throughout the evening.

The message that evening was clear – our call to restore CFC to what it was – a community called to strengthen family life, to evangelize; a community that is global, wholistic, and Catholic. A community submitted to the God, and His Church anointed to lead the Lord’s flock.
