Saying Goodbye And Having Fun

Some photos from our recent hospital retreat. This article is from the hospital website. The people at the hospital are a great group, and they are a great example to us of Christian love and brotherhood.

Laughter mingled with farewell tears

A day of creative joy

If 107 grown-ups and children play and make handicrafts fun is not far away.  The several workshops on offer rediscovered and promoted talents.  Santa Claus came as a surprise visitor and brought presents for all the 45 children there.  The “Olympic Games” ensured that there was not a dry eye in the house.  The group honoured seven exceptional athletes for their excellent support over the past years: Dr Will and Allison Caire, Harry Dürksen, Patti Piepiora, Simon and Belen Giesbrecht and Dr Marlen Luckow all of whom are finishing their multi-year working-stints at Diospi Suyana.  Thus drops of sadness mingled with the joyful atmosphere.  But we as Christians believe that we will see each other again one day.
