This week we continue with our introduction of people at Unity House – today you’ll meet some of the assistants who have been part of Unity House over the last year:
In 2009 we welcomed new assistants Cecile of Quebec in July and Yae eun of Korea in October, who bring us experience, vitality and friendship. In the mean time, we sadly had to say good bye to three of our beloved housemates, Alison (England), Tabea (Germany) and Jin Young (Korea)who all had to return to school in their respective countries.
We were also proud of our Eresi who graduated from VCC as a licensed practical nurse. Her training will definitely strengthen our abilities to cope with increasing health needs. We are also happy to welcome back Eresi from her momentous journey to her homeland Uganda. You see every good thing you heard about is true; they do not call us Unity House for nothing, we are truly international.
We are also blessed by Louise’s presence who not only help us maintain our long held traditions amidst the changes around us, but also help us grow in love and spirituality. It was wonderful to hear her travel stories and the precious times she spent with her dad during her three month long sabbatical.
Unity House is one of the six residential homes in the L’Arche Greater Vancouver community.
