Elizabeth in Kalimpong

In the Summer of 2015, Elizabeth Price spent part of her Summer in Kalimpong as assistant to the Pastor, Henry Simon.

As a Lay Reader and mentor, Elizabeth was able to get alongside our sponsored children in a very special way.

Each week Elizabeth sent us a diary piece with photographs, giving a wonderful picture of daily life at the Homes.

We have collated these articles and you can read them here in seven chapters.

Chapter 1 - Arrival at The Homes

I made it folks!  Here I am in beautiful, damp, misty Kalimpong and nicely settled into my room at Ahava where I have spectacular, dual aspect views of the surrounding hills and, with a bit of luck during the next two months, I might get to see Kanchenjunga.

Ruth (Sponsorship Secretary and all-round amazing lady) was at Bagdogra airport to meet me, having been on the road for six hours due to landslides and after a refreshing cup of Darjeeling we set off back to DGH – another six hours, although thankfully the rain was light.
