Just passing by....
Arlenne Villahermosa who is home from Myanmar for a few months break. Still gentle spirited with contagious smile, she looks and sound well even with her white hair which has obviously not been touched by a hairdresser for the past two years. From Arlenne, we heard many beautiful stories about Myanmar and its people.
Lorelei "Lalay" Ocaya who came home August 3 to be with her very sick mom. Sadly, Lalay's mom died a week later. Our sincere condolences to Lalay and her family on the death of her mother Buenaventurada Ocaya. Lalay returned to her mission assignment in Ireland on August 31.

Finally, Rose Basada of RP18 has been interviewed for her visa application to Britain. This happened six weeks after her teammates Jayjay and Ger flew to Britain. Processing time is approximately 18 working days. She is looking forward to be reunited with Jayjay and Ger, excited to meet the other lay missionaries in Britain, and can't wait to personally hear the "lovely' and "darling" people of Britain.
