Student Sharing:  

很開心今年可以與印尼人一齊做服務,我覺得做服務是可以跨國界的,雖然長者不懂英語或印尼語,但我想他們是能夠體會我們一齊去服待他們的心。我很開心可以一邊做服務,一邊從組員口中認識多點印尼的文化同生活環境,可以同香港的比較,這算是我的一個意外收獲。

Happy is not just about getting what you want. Happy is also about giving what you have, sharing your life spirit, and cherishing every single moments you have.
