I remembered an unpleasant experience in my first WSC that I really did not think I would attend another SFL conference again. But somehow, God led me to experience a second WSC this year in Cavite. Honestly, the only reason why I convinced myself to go was because I super love to dance, and if only for dancing, i was willing to make a sacrifice and go to the WSC.
The experience turned out to be very unexpected for me. In one “first impression” activity, I did not think I would get a feedback that “malaki ang problema ko,”, but I did. That was hilarious and disturbing at the same time! I did not think I would learn about my friends’ challenges and how they chose to face them despite the difficulties, but I did. I did not think that I would hear what I needed to hear in order for me to face the struggles I was dealing with, but I did. I ended up being physically tired and yet emotionally energized. The WSC 2012 experience turned out to be more than I had hoped for. God had a hand in everything that happened, through the people I encountered and the meaningful turn of events. So ask me if I’m attending WSC again next year. I think you know by now what I am going to say. Definitely, I am going to WSC 2013, and it is not simply because of dancing.
