From Abbeyfeale to Sudan
“Welcome to Solo in South Sudan. My name is Helena Quinn from Abbeyfeale in Co. Limerick living in London.
Earlier this year, I sent an email that would change my life forever. I embarked on the journey of a lifetime to Narus in South Sudan to live with Fr. Tim Galvin and Fr. John Joe Garvey and to get a taste of missionary life.
I was the maths teacher in St. Bakhita Girls primary school and on my second day was promoted to the lofty position of Headmistress of the Standard 8 candidate class.
I fell in love with South Sudan and every minute spent elsewhere will be just one minute closer to my return.
This is my record of my life and experience in South Sudan. It is my way of sharing but also my way of remembering. “
