I once served a full time mission for the LDS (Latter Day Saints) church back when I was still single. I spent 1 and a 1/2 year in the city of General Santos, Mati, and Kidapawan. Those were the best 18 months of my life...and I wouldn't trade it for the world. The service caused me my job promotion and a one year training in Japan. I never regret quitting my job and serving God in that part of His vineyard. I've met new friends, learned their language, gained testimony of the truthfulness of God's gospel, got the chance to know me better, share the word of God to others, and what my purpose is on this earth. Every so often, I can't help but find myself wishing that I could go back and serve again. There were even nights that I dream myself back in the mission field :-). Anyway, here is a photo of me and my last companion whom I trained for 4 months before I finally go home after my term is over. Her name is Marylene. Many people mistaken us as sisters and other thought we were twins. How I wished she was my biological sister. She now lives in Manila and have wonderful family of her own :-). Hope to see her when we go visit Philippines next year.
