Day 5 & 6 of My First Mission Trip
On the 5th day after devotion and briefing we departed for Biyoy. Before leaving we had some photos taken. Some of us has grown fond of Kakidongan and the people here.
We enjoyed the the ‘hike’ thoroughly. Little did we know some of the girls was hiding in the jeepney and followed us to Biyoy…they wanted to spend more time with us, we were really touched by their spirit!
We were served a special dish for lunch…instant noodle soup! Over in Philippines, the instant noodle is served as a dish. We had that with rice!
After lunch while the ladies freshened up at a house nearby (the house we were staying in at Biyoy had no water supply at that time, piping problem), the men went to the stream to have their bath…I won’t post any pictures here …though very tempted, even got video
After a ‘candle light dinner’ we walked to a nearby community hall for service. There were no electricity supply in Biyoy so candles and oil lamps were used.
About 60 attended the service and 15 came forward for altar call. Service ended at 9.40pm and we headed back to Ps Salome’s home for briefing and fellowship before calling it a night.
Day 6 – We got up early, had breakfast and devotion then packed to leave for Bambang again at 8.30am. We had a good view of the mountainous terrain on the way out to Bambang, passing plots of padi fields, corn fields and citrus orchards. The journey down wasn’t as bumpy and long as the journey up to Kakidongan.
Since we have some free time before tonight’s meeting, we stopped by Solano and bought some necessities and did some marketing.
Upon reaching Bambang, we had our ‘bath’. Below is a video, which I enjoyed so much! Please turn your speakers on…you must listen to the commentator
After our baths and dinner, Aaron, Adino and Leon ministered to the youths at Ps Agusto’s church.
The youths had a wonderful time!
That was our 6th day! To bed soon after as we needed to be up pretty early the next day for a long journey.
