Traversing mountains of difficulties can be both literal and figurative. As an old maxim says that life is full of ups and downs, the same is true when group of people decide to go up high a mountain.
On July 17-19, 2020, several Northeastern Mindanao Academy teachers trudged the challenging way going to Bantolinao, Padiay, Sibagat, Agusan del Sur, where some of their students reside. Everyone was full excitement not knowing how difficult the trek was. However, while they were on their way up, they were filled with diverse feelings. Some were terrified and some just chilled and enjoyed the remarkable experience.
Upon reaching the top, they were in great awe and astonishment for the attention-grabbing and spectacular view. The most accommodating brethren and parents of their students welcomed them with their luscious delicacies.
Everyone has a mission and that is to witness and share God’s abounding love and goodness, at the same time, mingling with the brothers and sisters in Christ of the place. Participating in every part of the programs from vespers to sundown worship was very rewarding and seeing the joyful faces of the brethren made their souls lifted to God. But they have nothing to boast for everything that happened was because of God’s abiding presence. All glory to God!!! (Lany Gupit – is a faculty of NEMA)
