My first mission trip. My first trip to Dumaguete Island.
Missing the people I met and bonded with so badly. A small island that is very interesting to explore, you may wanna try riding a motorcycle around town, totally relaxing.
I was totally overflowing with the Holy spirit though was physically tired from lack of proper rest the entire 8-day trip. I was only running on adrenaline and the spirit of God.
lets summarize what i got to do and did not imagine that i could, the entire trip:
1. i did ramp modelling, acted, danced, and was a speaker on stage on Managing your Finances.
2. i evangelized to high school and college students in various campuses.
3. i was able to continuously fellowship with fellow sisters and brothers.
4. i attended meetings here and there, gave best practices on how we run the church in Quezon City.
5. i taught steps of a praise dance to the Kid's church volunteers wearing a skirt.
6. i rode on a motorcycle several times around the city.
7. i rode standing on a multicab, enjoying the fresh air in the late evening.
8. i finally got to eat fried ice cream! i tried their famous tempura with sauce no. 5, meaning, the hottest of them all! and i loved it!!! beat that!
9. i got to sing ' i will survive' full of emotion at the karaoke.
10. i attended and did the following for the first time: prophetic presbytery, Young professionals night, conduct 121(one of our manuals for sharing), and attend a prayer meeting.
11. had fun swimming, touring, and socializing with the Dumaguete church members.
it was one of those life changing events. it was definitely an exciting trip that helped me to get to know my strengths better, and facilitate the release of personal issues.
