Health Expo in UP! :)

Conducting a Health Expo is an excellent way to get people interested in becoming healthier! We held our Health Expo at one of the public halls on the campus of the University of the Philippines (UP) and we praise God for those who attended. Because the hall was not so easily accessible, not as many people as we expected came, but we still had a good attendance! Our PAFCOE students were heavily involved from the set-up, to the health lecturing at each of the NEW START booths, to the registration and much more!

Because a picture is worth a thousand words, I have included some pictures of our health expo for you to get a taste of what it was like.

One student said, “I was assigned to help out in the Nutrition booth at the health expo and it was so amazing to me to see how the people took every piece of information they could get from us the lecturers. They were sincerely searching for a better, healthier way of living. And it reminded me of how God has given us all that we need to have health and He has provided all the remedies so freely and accessibly for all, yet so few know about them! It was such a privilege to be able to tell the people about God’s healing way!”

We opened the Health Expo at 4:00 pm and by 6:30, everyone was invited for the evening lecture by Dr. Blessey Varona – a well known Doctor of Nutrition. She captivated everyone’s attention by sharing the difference between “heart attack” foods and “heart antidote” foods. It was so interesting! One student said, “Praise the Lord! Our Bible study interest attended the first 3 days of the Health Expo! She said with gratitude in her heart that she really enjoyed the program and had learned many things. We will pray continually that God would convict her to be more receptive to His truth.”

We held the Health Expo and the evening health lectures for 4 days and then invited everyone to attend the opening night of the prophecy seminar. But those stories are for another update.

Stories from the Prophecy Seminar will be posted soon! Keep watching! :)
