Pamaypayan is a baranggay of Bislig City. It can be access to a challenging road, a pump boat ride through Bislig river or to a challenging hiking from barangay San Jose. I visited Pamaypayan riding my motorbike before. I fell down three times that scratched the paint of my motorbike. It took me almost two hours to get there.
Last September 25, 2015, I was challenged by my buddies to go for hiking to Pamaypayan passing their newfound trail. I insist to depart early because I am not fit to hike, especially that I had never climb mountains for a long time. We started the trail passing the National Highway from Mangagoy to Davao City via Trento. Then we started the climb at about 7:20am. The trail was only 5 kilometers but it took us 1 hour and 20 minutes to get there. I realized that I am really slow and physically unfit, but I barely manage to survive.
We arrived there and meet the Seventh-day Adventist brothers and sisters for Sabbath worship. I praise the Lord for the wonderful Sabbath that we have, experiencing His power that is working with the Adventists in that area. We are praying that God in his time will provide a church at that place.
Please pray for the Adventist people in this place.
My next Challenge: I will take the route through Bislig river for my next visit.
