Philippines trip - the new years day
Ok so this was the longest 24 hours of my life. I was waken up at about 8am to walk out side and witness a Filipino tradition of the killing of a life pig. I’m no one to change someone’s tradition but dang that’s a lot to take in at 8 in the morning and here squeezes of death and witness a murder lol.
After at around noon I spoke very briefly to a pretty sizable crowd and actually ate part of the pig that I witnessed die earlier in the day. Lol kinda tough meat but whatevs. Afterwards the cousins and I went and hung out playing bumper cars.
Ok so this is a picture of a typical Filipino market. Now I didn’t eat any food from here, ironically I ate at a PNKY cafe and a KFC. Within a few hours I was stricken with a fever and having some serious stomach problems.
Let me tell you, you haven’t lived until you’ve had what seemed like demons getting puked out of your mouth and pooping lava at the same time. It’s sucked big time. The fam took me to the hospital and I didn’t get out till about 3am diagnosed with food poisoning.
I remember sitting on the bed, and no joke thinking I was dying. I prayed so freaking hard for God to heal me in time so we can go to Manila. I asked Him to please show his power and make it obvious for me but I will praise His name regardless. Well this tumblr post is just that, praise God for curing me.
That I would continue to trust in God to do things I can’t do on my own and praise Him whatever the outcome.
Have you ever received a quick and obvious answer to a prayer?
