receive the power - wyd 2008

the largest youth event in the world is about to happen again this week. the World Youth Day 2008! i never had the chance to attend any of the WYD but i can see the excitement of people who are going to Sidney this week. this year's theme is
'You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses.'
Acts 1:8

you can visit the official webesite at www.wyd2008.org or might as well check out one of the promotional video. to note, the biggest ever WYD happened here in Manila in 1995. this year's theme song is "Receive the Power" as sung by Guy Sebastian and Paulini.

i'm sure this will be another big event for the youth to reflect and be reminded of receiving the power of the Holy Spirit.this week, byaheng noypi will feature my trip short way North of Manila.

sayang! sana dito nalang ulit sa Pilipinas ganapin ang WYD..sobrang saya kasi nito e..=)
naalala ko tuloy ang theme song ng WYD dati..at napapakanta na naman ako ng..let us tell the world of HIS love, the greatest Love the world has known..hehe=)...naalala ko pa na may action ang kantang ito..=)
sana may budget ang government para sa lahat ng youth dito sa pinas para makasama ang mga kabataang gustong maka witness ng WYD at para na din ma bless lahat ng makakasama..
Ang alam ko kapag na blessed ka ni Pope, the next generation of your family will also be bless..=)

I'm sure lots will benefit from that event :)

redlan said...

memorable yung world youth day dito sa pinas kahit hindi rin ako nakadalo. maganda yung kanta ni jamie rivera for wyd.

aabangan ko naman yang north of manila trip na yan. red<---excited.

the donG said...

>hi doc rio, we hope for the same thing. ako din iniisip ko na sana dito ulit kasi hindi pa ako nakapag attend ng WYD.

i think around 2,500 ang aattend na pinoy. we are ninth in the list of the most number of participants in this year's WYD.

malamang ganun nga ang blessings.

>napaboaniya, true!

>redlan, oo nga. bata ko pa nun. hehehe...

salamat sa pag abang.

>hi ifoundme, you're blessed to have attended that. i hear the same experience from the many people who attended it way back 1995.
