In the preparations leading up to EXALT, I started to feel slightly anxious and overwhelmed by some of the food orders. In addition to that, with the number of COVID cases rising rapidly, the fear that all the hard work many have put in for the event would be in vain if a sudden restriction was issued, saddened me. However, this did not come to pass!
I praise God for the bright morning of 18 September (EXALT DAY 1). I remember feeling in awe as I saw the many hearts entering the gates of OYP. Serving in EXALT, I was reminded of the immense love and goodness that God always lavishes on His people. He made His presence and love known in the littlest of things like the many helping hands that volunteered to help when my team had to distribute food and water. Reflecting back on Exalt, there was much awe and wonder in God’s movement during the entire program. As the end of the first day drew near, I felt comforted, rested, and loved as I gazed onto the Blessed Sacrament. God truly is faithful and assured me again that all things are within His control, and that He is much bigger than my anxieties and fears. All I need to do is keep my gaze on Him, for nothing is impossible with God!
