At swearing in some volunteers gave a speech about our training and Peace Corps and everything. The speech was given in four languages, English, Hiligaynon, Cebuano, and Tagalog. (All of the languages that were learned during our training) They did an excellent job!
U.S. Ambassador, Kristie Kenney giving a speech. She was the one who swore us in. She told us that we take the same oath that she took when she was sworn in as the U.S. Ambassador AND we take the same oath that the President of the United States takes. Isn't that cool???

The mayor of Bacolod giving a speech at our swearing in.

My friends Sara and Rachael and I before swear in.

Our language and technical trainers. They would not sit still for a picture, ha-ha.
