It's 8:30 PM Beirut time. We have just made rounds of the boys apartments and told them goodbye. There were lots of hugs and a few watery eyes. Many of the boys asked if we were comming back next year. We answered "Inshallah".
One of the housemothers answered for us when she told the boys, "of course they are coming back next year. They always return."
Calvary has built a relationship with the boys and staff here at Dar el Awlad. One that they trust and value. A relationship of which they say, "of course Calvary is coming back next year. Calvary always returns."
