Day 9 – Return to Bacolod

Today we left Cabacungan with a heavy heart. As we traveled back to Bacolod we spoke about memories created and the experiences shared. Students appreciated the scenery of the mountains and volcano. After we arrived in Bacolod we had lunch and made our way to HIS Life Church and School. We were blessed with the opportunity to serve the children with singing, dancing and some balloon animals. After making our way back to the hotel we got some time to rest, some of us enjoyed the hot afternoon and took a dive in the pool. Everyone exchanged stories about their respective experiences as we joined up with Swan again.

This evening we were treated to a wonderful sit down dinner at HIS Life Church and School. We watched performances by local students and teachers as they walked us through their rich culture with a play, traditional dancing and some original Christmas carols.

Casey gave a presentation at the celebration dinner about our experiences and summed up our time in Cabacungan exceptionally well.As the night came to a close, we gave praise to God and headed back to the hotel for much needed rest before tomorrow’s big day.
