Canada was very high in spirit as they held three Solemn Charge Regional Conferences with speakers from the International Council gracing the events namely Bro. Rouquel Ponte with wife Nina, Bro. Lito Tayag and wife Linda, Bro. Shok Ariola and Bro. Ricky Cuenca. Also from Manila are Country Coordinator for Canada Bro. Eric delos Reyes with wife Carina as well as Ablaze President, Bro. Rommel Ancheta.
The CENTRAL REGION has every reason to rejoice because this was the very first CFC conference held in the Central Region which was held last July 13-15, 2018 at the Queensbury Convention Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan. More than 400 delegates coming from Regina, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Central Edmonton and mission areas trooped to the venue to listen and be inspired by the speakers and sharers.
The delegates were honored to see His Grace Archbishop Donald from the diocese of Regina who celebrated the opening mass on Friday and welcomed all the delegates from all areas of Central Region. The conference was also witnessed by our priests and CFC supporters namely Fr. Roque Conception, Fr. Ed Hengen, Fr. Dan Rafael and Fr. Gerald Cooper.
Bro. Rosco Doromal, the Central Regional Head with wife Sally and Bro. Nonoy Dalman, Member of Board of Elders, with wife Marivie were also present to deliver God’s message to the delegates
The EASTERN REGION Conference was held last July 20-22, 2018 at the Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Quebec City and attended by more than 600 delegates coming from Ottawa, Montreal, Hamilton, Toronto and other mission areas. Opening night was highlighted by the different area presentations as well as the banner competion which showcased the artistic and creative side of each area. After this they proceeded to the gymnasium where they they had the basketball and volleyball competions amidst the loud cheering and dancing of the crowd.
Bro. Eric Dimaculangan, Eastern Regional Head together with Bro. Raul Marababol, member of the National Council declared the conference open.
Bro. Reuel Robrigado delivered a powerful talk supported by the very inspiring sharing of his wife, Sis. Owen followed by Bro. Eric Dimaculangan who emphasized the love of Christ in spite of the many trials and difficulties in Life. The delegates laughed, cried and were transformed by all the talks which was made even more touching by the life changing sharings.
The atmosphere of the venue changed as the delegates came in their cowboy inspired get up for the East meets West Fellowship Night. It was a night of fun, dancing and a great opportunity bonding with one another.
The last day of the conference was a great send off to all delegates as they cheered and clapped to all the winners in the different categories. Most of all, they will go home full of inspiration on how to do the work of God with joy and gladness.
The WESTERN REGION CONFERENCE was the last, but not the least, held last July 27-29 at Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver, BC. There were about 950 strong men and women who converged to be inspired and be transformed in their lives. The 100%+ attendance from the Greater Vancouver Area clearly shows that they are all ready and excited for what God has in store for them
Bro. German Roldan, Western Region Head gave a talk that inspired the delegates. Bro. George Fournier, member of the National Council took the audience in awe as he delivered his talk with his three sons. Saturday was highlighted by inspiring talks and sharing solidified why CFC conferences are such an inspiration to the CFC community as there were so much wisdom, inspiration and love being shared by all the gifted speakers and sharers.
The Saturday fellowship brought back the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90’s inspired variety show and ended with everyone on the dance floor. It was indeed a great treat to all the delegates as coincidentally it was fireworks night in Vancouver.
More than anything, the conference created a hunger to be in love with the community even more and to look forward to next year’s conference. Indeed, we cannot outdo the works of the Holy spirit. The weekend was filled with joy, high spirited praise and worship, fun fellowship and overall, it’s a victory
