Dear Students of ACSI Member Schools,

I thank God for the opportunity HE gave ACSI Philippines to provide all of you, both budding and experienced student leaders a leadership training that focused on the perspective of servanthood. I thank your Schools for sending you to this event.

I pray that you have been inspired to have a welcoming attitude, opening your hearts to accept anyone who needs to be led to Jesus, to be paying attention to details; to be who you are and be the best you can be because God designed you that way.

Remember that Christ-following leaders are different. “”..but among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant.” – Matthew20:26

Shine each day for the Lord!

Abundant blessings to all of you, your schools, and your families.

Serving the Lord gladly,
Evelyn M. Malabunga-Bumatay, M.A.

I like how everything is organized because the schedule is not dragging and we were given ample time to loosen up. Kudos to everyone who worked behind the scenes. I suggest there will be same number of delegates next year. It is more intimate if number is restricted to 50.

I like ACSI and the lessons that were presented to us as well as the activities and the new insights of life and leadership as a student leader. I love the program, the people, the food, and the place. It helps us rethink about what I’ve done in the past and that I can do better.
