Conclusion
God loved us first, and so we are born because of love.
Our existence on earth means showing our utmost love for the almighty and our love for our neighbours. And
so, let us not forget one thing: we evangelize people and we get to introduce Jesus to them, it is our business.
We market God by being an example to the participants and by seeing God in each of them. By doing so, we
do not live by words but by actions.
Serving in LCF is Gods way of giving us an opportunity to grow and to know him more. Let us not be afraid,
but let us claim Gods victory as we equip ourselves to be of better service to him and his people!
