Visit to Vientiane January 2015

Post date: Feb 5, 2015 5:08:07 AM

We are back in Vientiane after being away for one year. We visited colleagues, friends, and of course our scholarship students. The young man graduated from deaf school. He married his long time girlfriend, another deaf student. They work together in the same restaurant. It's wonderful to see him so happy.

Our deaf scholarship student is now mainstreamed in a primary school. He lives at the blind school and walks there every day with two other boys. It's frightening to see them with the white canes walking along the busy roads in Vientiane.

The baby and little girl next door from where we lived in 2002 are now all grown up. They receive good support from their parents are both doing well in school.
