Postulancy is about to end , and only four (4) Postulants generously continued their formation namely : Dennis Galan (Guimaras), Junedel Pinatacan (Zamboanga del Sur), Jon Rey Ismael Batayola (Palo, Leyte) and J-Louie Martinez (Antique.).
Before the end of the Postulancy formation, I was able to reflect and reminisce my whole journey here in Dumaguete. In my formation, I have encountered ups and downs, sadness and happiness , difficulties and challenges but amidst all these experiences I was able to raise myself up and to move on. My significant experiences helped me to become more mature in my formation and to be transformed. One of my significant experiences was during our involvement in the Mission immersion in Nuing Mission Station at Jose Abad Santos, Davao Occidental from January 26 to February 14, 2016. My involvement in the mission helped me to clarify and to purify my own intentions and motivations to join the Redemptorist Congregation. The children in the mission area in Nuing were one of the instruments which made me persevere in my vocation. The qualities I have seen in them inspired me to enjoy my formation, trust my formation, believe in my own self and to entrust myself into the hands of our Lord Jesus Christ who is the redeemer of all.
