7 Sep – After an extended stay in the United States due to the pandemic, Rica Peralejo is happy to finally arrive home to the Philippines.
On the wee morning of 5 September, the actress posted a photo of herself and her son with their bags and luggage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2, writing, "Hi, Manila. We arrived softly on this rainy morning. You are still sleeping, just like my toddler. See you later when we wake up."
"Already prepared myself by admitting that I will probably not like your inconveniences, will perhaps feel a little more hassled than usual, and make me want to fly back to where we came from. But you are the place of our calling. And sometimes, I mean many times, calling is not a matter of our choosing, it isn't decided according to where we might feel the most comfort in life. It is where God ascertains the geography of our unique mission and story," she added.
Peralejo continued, saying that the nation needs her as much as she needs her nation, for her own humility, sanctification, and more.
In another post, the actress said that she and her family were given the option to return home back in June and August, but they declined to do so as the process wasn't as smooth at the time. She also assured that the whole family had taken a swab test as soon as they arrived.
