I PASSED MY NAPFA!!!
I PASSED MY NAPFA!!!
i was so on the verge of failing, but it was definitely the grace of my Heavenly Dad that pulled me through the entire test... i've seen miracles here and there and how much my God loves me through today's NAPFA...
i reached the stadium and gathered together with my friends in the middle of the stadium... and i heard people shouting at the right of the stadium, saying like "people taking your NAPFA, please gather here!" and so, my friends asked me to go and find out if they were to go there... so i went there and i report first... he gave me a "leftover" number tag and i joined the previous group in the circult thingy... i was like "wa lao... how can like that?" and i told him i wanted to do with my course people and he was like "cannot"... so, whatever... and then, came a female helper that took us... she was so nice la... just because, during my pull-ups, which i know i couldnt even do a proper 4, i pulled halfways and went up again... that was, in actual fact, not counted... she didnt make noise lo... i donno that's nice or slack or what... but i did 6, which i passed!! so happy... kind off cheated but thank you God that without her, i dont think i would have survived with a more strict helper...
next, i had my 2.4km run last... i thought that was the last thing i should be worried about... i was wrong... it was so much harder that i thought it would be... there werent any warm-ups led before the run... we just gathered and go... there were some sturggles... first, the weather... it was so freaking very cold and my muscles were like near to cramps... second, as i said, no warm-ups... thirdly, IT RAINED!!! the thought of me going to Sotaro's house one of the days that it rained, came to my head... okay... it rained so heavily that i even saw lightning... and i was like finishing la.. i didnt care... i dashed as fast as i could and ended my race... phew, i survived...
we were gathered and i heard that the run was not counted... they had to stop everything because of the rain and lightning... i was like "@#$%^"... but hey, look at how God works... i came in at a disappointing 12:20minutes, which i expected better because i used to clock 9:30minutes... but truly, without the rain, i would not even be passing my NAFFA... besides, i was the LAST PERSON to be considered in the list... because they stoped the timing after me... i was so blessed la.. i thought i had to re-do everything... when i asked about my timing and everything, they said they had my records and i was so happy... thank God so much!!
i guess i was over-confident... i never thought that 2.4 km run was that hard to pass until today... for 3 years of not training, my stamina dropped.. but luckily, it didnt fail me today... i was so fortunate to cross the finish line without puking or fainting... thank You God... the passing time for 2.4km was actually 12:30 minutes and i actually came in just 10 seconds earlier... close shave.. but God really taught me a lot of lessons today...
