The night before the missionary team's departure on June 30, we had our prayer meeting at the Kwun Tong Resurrection Church. Fr. Yan, Carlos, Hinhin, Agnes Chang, ah Lok, Cynthia, Candy, Gary and his family, Rainbow and Zenia were there. We prayed with the children and Fr. Yan asked Gary's children to give blessings to each of us.

On the day of departure, the missionary team members met at 4:45am and headed to the Hong Kong International Airport by bus. Some team members spent a night at the church and briefly rehearsed the program. Everybody was tired. Once they were in the bus, everybody felt asleep. The team arrived at the airport before the counter opened. We were all very excited.
