Let's Be Friends: Bonding with a Band (A SOL 1 Team Project)

Anyone can be creative and make use of what they have and who they know in order to make things happen. In this case, SOL 1 students named Team Him organized an event, inviting the people they met at the Logos Hope Ambassador Program as special guests. They borrowed the Ilocanos Sur Barangay Hall as venue. 

Among the members was widowed mother Mayeth Mikitpikit who used her connections to invite the event’s main attraction—a live acoustic band.  It was also to her credit that she volunteers as a Guest Relations greeter every Sunday at the center. She applied her training as GR in welcoming and entertaining the guests, making them feel at home and relaxed.

The once shy, soft-spoken Irhea Panit has come out of her shell. Usually contented to be in the background, she took center stage and spoke in front of the guests as host.

Matthew Agcaoili used his training as a Multimedia volunteer at SFCC to set up  the sound system for the band. His artistic creativity was also applied in decorating the venue’s mini stage and photo booth. 

Sandelyn Nuesca, a 19-year
old student took the reins and led her teammates into making the event a meaningful one. 

It was a successful event due to the fact that each of the team members made use of what they had (talents, resources, connections) and pooled them together to work as one.  The bond that was formed between the organizers and the guests did not end when the event ended. The guests also accepted the invitation to attend SFCC’s soaking and weekend services. Truly a testimony that a ‘whatever it takes’ attitude achieves the goal—to win souls for Jesus! 

The acoustic band was willing to pitch in their talents for free.
The participants enjoyed the ice breaker. 
Good clean fun for everyone.

Friendships are formed when someone takes the initiative to reach out.
