Last year Northeastern Mindanao Mission trained young people for FCAMP Facilitators. Many of them successfully completed the training. One of them is Clinton M. Dumangcas, a first year student in Caraga State University, taking BS Math. While he is in our own Academy he is active in leading Master Guide activities. He is also the battalion commander of the school, pathfinder club in Northeastern Mindanao Academy.
Last year he was assigned in Punot, Salug Esperanza Agusan del Sur and Bonbon, Butuan City FCAMP facilitator. Jonald Serrano, the FCAMP consultant, perceived that he can be a good Camp Director for another camping. That’s why last April 15-21, 2012 he was assigned in Loreto District as Camp Director.
At first he wanted to decline because he felt that he is not capable of the responsibility, being young and doesn’t have any experience in handling such activities. He is contented of being a facilitator only. Mainly his fears were he doesn’t know the district pastors, the church elders and also the facilitators who will go with him since it involves for 3 districts. The facilitators came from different churches how could he manage the program. But before the FCAMP started, he was chosen to attend the Youth Alive program by the SSD in Central Philippine Adventist College last April 2-7, 2012. The training that
he attended helped him in revising their scheduled activities and applies such knowledge in the camping.
When the camping started he felt excited because there were more non-sda young people who attended even though they don’t have complete bonding with the facilitators. He was scared at first when one of the campers was disturbed by the devil during Wednesday until Saturday morning. Marathon prayers, Bible reading was done by the facilitators. But it was an unforgettable experience when he saw the power of God, when the devil was driven out through the power of prayer. Through that experience he longed to become a pastor.
