Updates on Debbie’s trip (13th Feb 2018)

13 Feb, 2018

In her last week in Toungoo, Debbie had been showered with praise, blessings and gifts by her students, co-workers, congregation members and local friends in farewell parties again.

Before her departure, she visited the new youth hostel funded by the donation she helped raised last year. The hostel is located at Leik Tho, two-hour drive from Toungoo, in the mountains.  She met around 20 students and had lunch with them. The students had never met any foreigners before that they were too shy to make any eye contact with Debbie.

Returning to Toungoo, Debbie treasured the remaining time with her fellow students and local friends. She said, ‘I can’t say much. Too emotional, and anyway words can’t express my feelings…’ 

 

 

 

 

 

‘It has been amazing but now I do really need a rest. In the meantime, thanks a million for all your encouragement and support! I would also like to thank Bishop John and his wife Elizabeth, my wonderful friends and supporters. Without them, I wouldn’t be here,’ Debbie said.

Debbie has left Toungoo to travel around Mandalay region for a week. She will fly back to Hong Kong on 18th Feb (Sunday).
