Once I landed in Manila, I was not exactly sure what it was I would be doing in my new internship. During the first week, I simply sat through a few orientation sessions and settled into my new cubicle.
After the first week, things are starting to fall into place. As of this past Thursday, I will taking on the task of facilitating the daily prayer time our office observes. Just before 11am, I walk to the middle of the office and ring a little bell. A few minutes later, everyone starts to trickle in for our daily prayer time together. Each day, we are able to share thanks, concerns, and requests about the work that goes on in our office. I am excited to be a part of the most important part of the workday.
