We just had the 14th Commencement Exercises of the School of Campus Ministry last night where we commissioned 35 new campus missionaries to doing vocational campus ministry. While I kinda dread the finding an outfit and fixing the hair and putting on make-up part, I’ve always looked forward to welcoming new colleagues and catching up with friends in the ministry who are serving in centers outside Metro Manila. Reunions are always one of life’s most beautiful moments.
It has been great seeing everyone I’ve served with back when I was a campus missionary in Davao. Most of these people were students back then. This only means one thing: I’m old. Ha!
School of Campus Ministry graduations would also mean being reunited with some of my batchmates!
Before the night ended, we also got to catch up with Davao friends who are now based here in Luzon.
I will forever be grateful for friendships that stay strong despite of, in spite of.

About 30 Days of Gratitude
I decided to breathe life into this blog some more by counting down to a special day exactly a month from now while counting the things I am thankful for in a day. I realized I’ve always found it hard to blog because I’ve been writing mostly musings and reflections, my tendency to debate and negate my own thoughts would usually make me decide against publishing posts (don’t ask how many drafts I have now). I figured day-in-a-life type of posts would probably help me get back to the discipline of writing even if a post would contain more pictures than words.
