More quotes here..
Once upon a time, while braving through yet another crazy day in school, we were informed that we were going to Bataan as part of our NSTP course. We went on our journey last September 8. Let me tell you all about it… XD
The first thing I noticed when we stepped out of the bus is the place itself. Bataan is beautiful. Fresh air, peaceful environs… that’s what I like in province. Awesome indeed!
There’s a whole lot of fun stuff that I got to experience in our fieldwork. It was so awesome! While it is indeed taxing, I really didn’t mind — after all, I love kids. I really do.
We, from the Faculty of Pharmacy, were assigned to teach the kids from Grades 2 and 6. Our group was specifically tasked to be with the Grade 6 kids. I have to admit that, at first, I thought that it’ll be somewhat boring… for the kids, that is. I feared that by the end of the day, we’d look like a corny bunch to them.
Good thing I was wrong.
We begun our operation of sorts by introducing ourselves to the kids, and having them introduce themselves as well. While we were hanging out inside one of the classrooms, we noticed that the kids were looking outside, because the other kids were out there playing. Turns out they wanted to go outside and have some fun as well. We took that as an opportunity in teaching them how important communication and bonds are in interacting with each other. I suggested that they play the game, “Calling Dr. Quack Quack”. I figured that it’d be a great way to measure the strength of the bonds one has with his friends. Suffice it to say that we had a great time playing that game… I guess. I do hope with all of my heart that they did have fun! :D
After the game, we asked them about what they thought of it. Most of them replied more or less this way: “Kasi po, doon po masusukat yung pagkakaibigan namin, doon po malalaman kung sino ba talaga ang tutulong sa ‘yo hanggang huli.” That was spot-on!
We also taught them about PWD (People With Disabilities). I told them that disabilities do not equate to hindrances. After all, if you want to do it, you can do it — with enough effort, of course. If you have great determination within yourself, it only follows that you can do anything. Right? There’s even a quote that says, “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’.”
Looking back, the most memorable moment for that day was when we said goodbye to the kids, smiles in their faces and all; the way they said “Thank you!” and asked us if would come back soon. Sadly, we won’t — at least, not for the time being. In the foreseeable future? Who knows? Maybe the lot of us would come back on our own and check out how the kids are doing. :)
The significance of our mission in Bataan is this: it was all to teach us that we should help other people who are in need, for as we help them, we also help God. Man is made in God’s image and likeness, and Jesus himself said something along the lines of “Whatever you do to the least of your brothers, you do to me.” Our mission also taught us that we should be strong in the face of the trials we encounter, and that we should believe in ourselves that we can do everything. As I said earlier, “Nothing is impossible.”
But then, of course, the angel Gabriel said it best: “Nothing is impossible with God.”
