GREAT (MIS)ADVENTURES

Gooooood dayyyyy to all! Nakawala ako sa isla ng Olutanga for few days. Last June 22, I went to Ipil together with my SVD confreres and some of our parish co-missionaries. We attended the 56th Prelature of Ipil Assembly.

Mga Participantes

002Ayan ang Baby Priest katabi ni Obispo!

For the record, pinakilala na po sa buong prelature ang inyong baby priest. Kakatuwa naman. Sa assembly, si Paring Bert Alejo, SJ introduced to us the Konsult Mindanao. It is the flagship of the Bishops Ulama Conference (BUC) that leads the ongoing peace consultations across Mindanao. It seeks to assure greater public participation in the Mindanao peace process consultation by covering the various sectors among Muslims, Lumads, Protestants and Catholics.

Si Paring Bert at Paring Joseph

Maganda ang talk ni Paring Bert. Nainspire ako at mas lumawak ang understanding ko ng Mindanao, its history and culture. Kaya naman, I will blog soon My Vision of Mindanao…

Fast-track…..

004Tulak to the Max!!!

Pag-uwi namin paputang Olutanga Island, medyo madulas ang daan kaya ayon na-slide ang gulong at pinulot kami sa side ng road…hehehe wala namang na-hurt sa aming mga pari…

005Grace under Pressure!!!

Noong malapit na kami sa pier, ito naman ang tumambad sa amin. Isang malaki at mahabang dump(dumb)truck na humarang sa daan dahil sa wrong backing. Di na makaahon dahil sa laki ng hole sa side ng road. Kaya ayon, ung mga pasahero ay no-choice kundi maglakad na lamang papuntang pier. Kasama ako doon. Napangiti pa nga ako because yong pinakaunang na-stranded na sasakyan dahil sa dump(dumb)truck na ito ay may signboard na: “DON’T DELAY, GOVERNMENT PROJECT.” Hehehe.

006So Near Yet so Far

Yan ang pier. Yong kabila, yan na ang isla. Ang lapit lang talaga ng Olutanga! I have to really confess pinag-iinitan ko talaga ang pier na ito. Gusto kong languyin na lang ang island!!! Imagine, ilang days na ako dito sa mission area ko and yet, di pa talaga ako nakaligo sa dagat! OMG! People here are afraid baka damputin daw ako ng bad people at ipa-ransom.

007

Kapit to the Max!!!

Sa dami naming mabibigat na passengers, muntik na tumagilid ang maliit na canoe na sinakyan namin! wahahahahaha! kuha lang ako ng kuha ng pictures. Sa isip ko, sana tumagilid para makaligo na ako sa dagat…(hehehe, very bad ang baby priest)…

008Back to Reality

When we reached the island, back to reality na ako. Another missionary journey na naman going to our parish. At ito ay isa lamang sa mga enjoy na daanan papunta sa amin. And oh, you are all welcome here…hehe.
