June 2017 Newsletter
Hello from Congo! 從剛果捎來的祝福﹗
We are still in shock over the overwhelming support that we received during our March tour to Hong Kong and Singapore. As our events sold out one after another, our jaws kept dropping!
We had to keep moving to bigger venues and adding more dates. The grand finale was a family concert. When the 350-seater recital hall sold out, we moved to the 1000-seat auditorium. We were concerned that it might look half empty. To our amazement, it also sold out! We are so humbled! It was a great celebration of what extraordinary things a community of ordinary people, from the young to the old, can do together. Special thanks to the incredible band of volunteers who worked tirelessly to make this tour possible.
從一個場地換到另一個更大的場地；從一場加開到兩、三場……最後以一個親子音樂會劃上圓滿的句號。當可以容納350人的音樂廳滿座，我們便換到可以容納1000人的演奏廳。那時我們也有點兒忐忑，擔心觀眾席最後只能半滿。但出乎意外地，竟然又爆滿了﹗我們真的有點受寵若驚﹗那天是屬於平凡人的慶典 – 慶祝各人不分年齡、眾志成城的豐碩成果。在此，特別感謝一眾不可多得的義工，有賴他們的不懈努力，這趟旅程才能成真。

Your kindness is inspiring kindness
The stories of our patients never cease to amaze us. Leon was cured from leprosy and was blind until we operated on him a few months ago. Nowadays, it seems that he is always smiling, and it seems that he is always in the hospital helping other patients. Here he is feeding one of our other patients who is suffering from severe burns to both hands and is unable to feed herself.
