CEBU CITY, Philippines— Friends are more than just people you hang out with and have fun with.
They are those who will dream with you, work on that dream with you, and reach that dream with you.
A proof of this are these best friends from Malaybalay, Bukidnon, Kirk Raymund Gomez and Hazel Ducto.
Kirk recently shared the inspiring story of his best friend answering her calling to become a nun after years of praying for it.
“We were best friend since childhood pa. Dream na talaga nya maging madre. After she graduated she pursued ang pagiging madre but after 4 years i think lumabas sya same company po kami. After 2 years in working naka pag decide napo sya na bumalik kasi calling talaga niya. Pero before sya bumalik ginawa talaga namin yung mga gustong gawin nya,” he said.
Just last October 15, 2023, Gomez witnessed the clothing ceremony of his best friend. She is now called, Sister Mary Paul Elizabeth.
