Our regular visitor from Ireland, Tommy Kelly came with Irish butter and a lot of energy. He repaired and refurbished a house in the village for a family in need, from the Outreach Program. Thanks Tommy.
Ed Schnase from the USA who completed 6 months volunteering at the Fr Ray Foundation in Pattaya came to visit and helped out with teaching English. He has been a great supporter in donating medical items for our clinic.
Thor Vaassen from Australia came for his first time to Sarnelli House. He bought lots of fun and kindness to the kids, and involved himself in all the holiday activities, and survived his first Songkran.
Brothers JoJo and Yai from Thailand who are studying to be Redemptorists priests were fantastic – they ran Thai language courses, played sports with the kids and were great role models.
Naomi Weir from Scotland came for her 2nd visit to Sarnelli on her return trip to Thailand – she was waterlogged from all the swimming with the kids and they enjoyed her kindness and fun.
Cameron Mills from the UK, our regular visitor who is teaching in Thailand, enjoyed Songkran and all the holiday activities and impressed all the kids and staff with his Isaan language skills.
Marcia Meier from Germany left us after 6 weeks of holiday fun. She will be badly missed by everyone - kids and staff alike, and we really hope we see her next year – good luck with your studies Marcia!
