Beverley’s Blog

Well, my physical body is home in Ben Eoin but my mind and all my thoughts still are with the people of Zinvie. I wonder how Elysse is coping with the ability to eat and speak. Dr. Bourget removed THE largest pyogenic granuloma from the lingual of her mandible. Justine, I missed seeing you on our last morning. I hope and pray you are getting the follow-up care you need. Victor, Marielle, Emilienne, Pierre, to name just a few of the wonderful people I was blessed to meet, I hope you are all getting along well. Despite the pain some of you were experiencing, I will always remember your beautiful smiles and gestures of appreciation.

We, in the western world, have much to learn from these kind and gentle people. They have very little and some cases, next to nothing. But they will always greet you with “Bonjour” or “Bonsoir” and a huge smile.

I will always be grateful to Louis, for allowing me to have this incredible experience. Sister Monique, it was an immense pleasure to meet you. Thank you for your guidance, both the spiritual and the practical! To the rest of the team, what can I say, a BIG thank you to all of you for helping to make the experience memorable. Lastly, but certainly not least, to my sweet friend and interpreter, Renee, you made my days SO much easier and SO much more pleasurable. I just know the world will become a better place because of you. Until we all meet again…
