A vision of common Formation for all Mission Partners

About

I was born in a village of Myanmar on 9th December 1974 and given the name "Adelaide" when I was baptized. My parents are farmers.  I am 7th among 10 children. I lost three brothers when they were babies. I wanted to be a nun since I was young but no one knew it. I was send to Good Shepherd boarding house, Mandalay as a high school girl.  

 

In Good Shepherd

My desire to be a sister, particularly in the Good Shepherd Congregation, was affirmed by my seven years of lived experience with young women who need special help. I made my first commitment in year 2000, on19th August and final commitment in March 2007. 

 

The Challenges

I lost my Father on 24th December, 2002.  I worked in Cambodia for 5 years from 2010-2014, at the Fountain of Life Center.  Now I am in Myanmar and serving God as a community leader in the formation house in Yangon. I attended the Partnership Gathering held in Malaysia in June 2008, and have been a member of the Asia Pacific Partnership Team since 2011.

 

The Inspiration

I believe that priority should be given to common formation for sisters and lay mission partners, who may come from different religious traditions.

 

We have much to be enriched by learning from each other in terms of Partnership.’
