Life Under Highway

I grew up with experiences of suburban thrills, while rarely visiting places of Gensan's outskirts, particularly, Puting Bato. The moment we recieve our place to establish our Backyard Catechism thrills me. Imagine, being on a populated place, experience their way of living their, everything's a whole new level, since I grew up downtown.

Life under the highway is simple, everyday is just an ordinary day. Descending from the main road, cloth hangers catched my attention, kids playing just beside the road, by that time, you'll realize how dangerous it is. A path leading to their chapel, where you could barely walk through, is the first thing you'll experience through.

Above all this,what thrilled me most is how these people showed enthusiasm to our simple teachings, especially the children. Obviously,the place is crowded with more children than adult ones. Children are eager to learn and join in activities. People in that place would really change your impressions into somewhat kind and cozy fellows, actually, they did welcomed us warmly.

    I haven't tried catechism because i am not a Catholic but a civic action is worth the experience, masarap maging generous.

    Yan ang nakakatuwa sa kanila eh, mababaw lang talaga ang kaligayahan, madali iplease. I'm very fond of seeing pictures of children, very heartwarming kasi yung dating sakin.

    Tan, this is a good experience. You'll be able to see the difference between the rich and the poor and gain better perspective on the realities of life.
