GLOBAL DAY OF SERVICE:MORE OF JESUS, LESS OF ME
Monday, October 23, 2017

“To share love and service to the poor.”

This was the focus of the CFC Kids for Christ 8th Global Day of Service held in the Philippines and other countries from September 30 to October 1.


The KFC Global Day of Service or GDS is an annual event of the CFC Kids for Christ ministry under its World Changers Program. GDS calls on all KFC members, their families and friends, the whole CFC community and even non-community partners do random acts of love and service to others especially to the poor and those in need. 


Guided by the theme “We Do Everything In Love”, KFCs and their families all over the world performed deeds representing the seven corporal works of mercy, namely: feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit those in prison, comfort the sick and bury the dead.


Among the areas which observed the Global Day of Service were Metro Manila, Laguna, Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon, Batangas, Ilocos Norte, Cavite, Iloilo, Negros Occidental, Cebu, Naga City, Zamboanga City, Baler, Baguio, Camarines Norte, Bohol, Antique, Guimaras, and Capiz. Chicago and Canada were among the countries who observed the GDS in the International Missions.


Prior to the service, the participants listened to a pep talk where they were reminded of the life of Jesus, His sacrifices and the good things He did when He was still on earth. The ROCK Facilitators (YFCs serving in KFC) and the kids were reminded that the GDS basi-cally means to think less of themselves and more of others. This means being selfless and more loving like Jesus—to love like Jesus by serving the people around them beginning with their parents, siblings, friends, teachers and class-mates and people who are in need.
