The trip took us hours drive south. At the hotel the total of people was about 80 of us altogether I think. Excitedly, a wonderful lady joined us as she was our voice and sign language interpreter. Although, she is a Grade 1 teacher and is fluent translator. Blessed her heart for willing to interpret for me. She and I shared the room and GUESS WHAT! We stayed in the SAME room #110, that I had two years ago with the team. Chuckle... Oh right, she also joined the worship team to play fast music with Senegalese drum as well as on Sunday morning, I joined the team one song "I Love You, Lord". In the evenings, we watched a movie, and a few games. One of the games was "One Minute to Win"; oh what a fun! We had some real good laughs.
Over the weekend, I faced some barriers along the way. My experiences were somewhat challenging for me to deal with. I was only deaf person among hearing people and we did not have any qualified interpreter. Despite of the barrier situations, I enjoyed worshipping, learned some good messages from the speaker, made few new acquaintances, and relaxed in the pool. Gratitude for the Retreat!
