Once I thought this was a superficial, meaningless word where we merely utter when somebody leaves. Only until last night, I felt for myself the most heartfelt goodbye in my whole life. Our farewell was so overwhelming until I cried although I told myself not to. One second I was smiling but at the next tears start flooding my eyes. The church had put in a lot of effort in shaping me into a better youth and I am so grateful for that.
The day before I was departing from my closest friends in Theolo, and now I have to leave my church. For 17 long years they had been like a family, taking care and giving the best for me. Looking at the slideshow, looking at the beautiful memories, looking at how I have grown in the past few years, looking at my mature self compared to the childish kid I was then, I finally realized how I needed the church.
Now my heart is full of thanks. An indescribable feeling that I have never felt before. I will always remember the word of encouragement and well wishes. I will never let myself down, all of you are my motivation, my purpose, my support. Thanks for being there for me from the start. I know that I'll not be alone in the future too.
Till we meet again, Goodbye.
