Chi Alpha “This is Who We Are”

Created by XA Central Philippine University Iloilo

Thank you from Radical Outbreak

Dr. Eli Javier former GS and first XA President in the Philippines passes away

From Ty Silva

Cina and I are in the US, but received word today that Dr. Eli Javier [Former General Superintendent of the Philippines General Council of the Assemblies of God] went to be with the Lord today. Our friend and brother has preceded us to heaven, and our hearts go out to Sis. Esther and to John Wesley and his family.

We wanted everyone to know that Ptr Eli was a great believer in Chi Alpha. When we first arrived in the Philippines in 1980 with a vision to see XA student ministries all over the Philippines, he encouraged us greatly! In fact, as we sat in his GS office on the BBC campus, he pointed to a framed certificate hanging on his office wall. It was the original charter of XA Manila — the first Chi Alpha to be established outside of the US. He was the XA president when they chartered in the U-belt! Ptr Eli provided Cina and me with invaluable counsel and support through the years. We were blessed!

How meaningful for him to know before he passed that XA was growing all over the nation! Blessings on all of you in the Philippines as you labor on campuses across the nation. Blessings on you, Patrick and Nettie and the national leadership team, as you continue fanning the vision of reaching and discipling students all over the Philippines!

New Local Church XA Student Center Inaugurated

Last Sunday (July 8), First Assembly of God in Calamba City, Laguna have inaugurated their local Chi Alpha student center. The dedication ceremony was led by Senior Ptr. Mendoza and Chi Alpha coordinator Ptra. Shiela Regalado. The event was well supported by leaders of the church. The student center will cater to nearby colleges and high schools of downtown Calamba City, Laguna.

XA Update: XALT Day 2 in Iloilo

Pastor Val Rianne Billones gave a short message on the second and final day of our XALT last June 16, 2012. The students had fun in writing their personal testimony and sharing it with their group. The training capped off with just 25 students since many had make-up classes. Nevertheless, those who attended were given the task to hold their own small trainings in their respective campuses so the other XA members could catch up.

XA Praise: Roxas City, Capiz

First Assembly Roxas Missions held its first Chi Alpha Leadership Training or XALT last June 12, 2012. An estimate of 20+ students and leaders preregistered days before the training. The trainers were surprised when 70+ came on training day. The number was more than twice of what was expected. This only shows that God truly stirring up a revival in the campuses. Maranatha!

2012 Summer Trainings Completed

We have recently concluded our summer trainings for 2012. It was a great time visiting different places and training the youth, seeing their hunger for God and to learn from our trainings. The following were the places we have conducted Chi Alpha trainings:

– Oriental Mindoro – 170+ delegates
– El Nido Palawan
– Legaspi City – 20+ delegates
– Lagawe, Ifugao – 100+ delegates
– San Fernando, Pampanga – 25 delegates
– Calbayog, Samar – 40+ delegates

On our last Luzon training held in San Fernando, Pampanga last May 30-June 1, we are rejoicing because even though we have a small number, the group’s passion to reach the campus was just as stronger. First night started with a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit. 3 groups were represented in the training: San Fernando, Pampanga, Sta. Maria, Bulacan, and Mariveles and Balanga, Bataan. Each targeting a nearby university, college or high school. On the 3rd day, we visited Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University in Bacolor, Pampanga to do prayerwalking and evangelism exposure. Pray with us that Chi Alpha will be fully established in this prime and only state university in the province.

I also have to acknowledge also the awesome Chi Alpha teams that have been so dedicated to this vision. This summer we have experienced ministry together and going through victories and momentary setbacks. Their commitment and company makes this ministry more enjoyable and fulfilling than it already is.
I also had the privilege to participate in this year’s Asian Institute of Youth Studies held last May 15-25 in Asia Pacific Theological Seminary, Baguio City. AIYS is held every 3-4 years and caters to youth and campus workers of the Asia Pacific. This year’s AIYS was the biggest to date with 100 delegates from 18 nations, 35 of those come from the Philippines. I had the privilege to teach session on training student leaders in the Campus Ministry track. It was an awesome experience sharing what God is doing among the students and in Chi Alpha in the Philippines.
