During the night delegates were treated to a film showing entitled Remember the Titans a movie that portrays teamwork and Unity in diversity between black & white.


            In the 3rd day after the last session of the Institute & Sunday Worship Service headed by Mr. Bong Tolentino as the speaker, the afternoon was more into sports. The Mini-Olympics was launched, after the parade three major games started Basketball, Volleyball & Chess, it is between the groups. It was an afternoon of sweat, fun, laughter, sportsmanship, talents & challenge. But the greatest thing about sport will always be teamwork. The group who showed more teamwork by uniting in one goal is the one that prevails. After a tiring afternoon all delegates rested and prepared for the Christmas Party in which each group were ask to perform depending on what they picked drama, comedy, dance & singing.


            Christmas Party was the highlight of the night, each group showcase their unity & talents thru their presentation. The 1st group showed their acting talents in portraying the CYFers & Officers who attended CI 2002, the 2nd group showed how to the dance the Asereje even though some dont know how to dance! Laughter was offered by the third group with their Comedy presentation of This guy is in love w/u Papa, the last group showed their talents in Group Choir Singing. Different parlor games were also played during the night to entertain & make the CYFers participate and have fun, it was facilitated by Tonytes & Jennifer. After all the fun, Pastor Manuel Torres lead the closing prayer & challenged all the delegates who are willing to really serve the Lord be recognized come in front. All in all CI was a successful event not only because of the number of delegates that came but because youth coming from different churches learned and experience a lot of things together, as CYFers.
