Bon Voyage Sister Ester, Thank you for everything!
Suwon, South Korea – Sister Ester as she is fondly called by Filipinos in South Korea will be going home for good this coming Saturday, 25th of April 2015. She hails from Bicol but she was everywhere in the Philipines before she came to South Korea that is why she has the ability to speak many languages aside from her native Bicolano dialect as well as the English and Tagalog languages. She can also speak Cebuano, Chabakano, Ilonggo, Ilocano, Panggalatok, Karay-a, Hiligaynon, Ibatan, Tausog, and many more Philippine dialects.
For 20 years in South Korea as a missionary, she took care of many Filipino migrants and every migrant from different nations who came for help. She can make everyone around her laugh and smile even during the most difficult times. From the Koreans to Vietnamese to Cambodians and Idonesians, the Americans, British and Canadians, to the Cameronians, Kenyans and all from Africa of whom she mostly met during her time at the Suwon Emmaus Migrant Center, the main office of all Emmaus Centers located at the City of Suwon.
From all the people she met, and became friends and became like her children, they want to say thank you from the bottom of their hearts. “Thank you very much for being like a mother, a sister and most of all a guiding light to our quest to follow Jesus. You will always be in us wherever you are. We love you and we hope you will be able to continue doing what you love to do. Until we meet again. Bon Voyage! Sister Ester!” – Suwon Emmaus Community.
