Close to 3,000 people in 2 days time. Whew! So tired but so happy. My friend Dr. Alan Melacor squeezed in 8 talks for two days and brought me from Cagayan de Oro to Malaybalay Bukidnon (Beautiful place!) and had me speak to those wonderful people. Their warmth, their hospitality, their smiles and their laughter ……moments like these do not come everyday as the Ilocana and I enjoyed every moment of it.
Christ Commission Fellowship CDO organized and sponsored a parenting seminar and the place was filled with 888 participants…(hm-mm…..like the Beijing Olympics.) I enjoyed the session as the very well organized CCF staff made sure that participants maximized their learning while I did the speaking. Breakout sessions, survey forms, ice breakers came complete with the “talkies” and the only question I heard people ask is when will the next seminars be.
Well…there are plans for me to go back to Bukidnon and CDO to do talks on February of next year. And I look forward to this. Got home yesterday afternoon, opened my email, made some business phone calls and crashed.
Today, things are back to normal. Doing the early morning segment with Umagang Kay Ganda doing a talk for students in a very popular school which is 2 to 3 hours travel away from Manila…and you know what? I may be very tired but I feel joy and happiness welling in my heart….”same thing here….” says the Ilocana who is with me most of the time.
Tell me now….have you ever felt the same way? Tired but happy? And would you like to tell me all about it? “I’ll be back…” and this is Francis speaking not Arnold! Lord willing of course!
