Sr. Delores, our pro-vincial, asked me if I wasinterested in returning for thisassignment and I couldn’tturn her down.”The school has grown inher time away, she noted.“The all-girls school hasabout 800 students in it now.They get room and board(most bring their own mat-tress), food and education forabout $600 a year American— for what is considered atop-notch school,” she said.“We get a lot of help fromAustralia through their AUS/Aid but there are strict rulesto it. An American is runningthe school.“I’ve been a sister for 26years and served in placessuch as Toledo, Fort Wayne/South Bend in Indiana andNew Smyrna and Jacksonvillein Florida. New Smyrnais the farthest south in theUnited States I’ve served andI was Director of ReligiousEducation at Holy RosarySchool in Jacksonville.“This is the first place Ihave served that I didn’t havea lot of English as a SecondLanguage learners (sheworks with the Lima LiteracyCouncil, using her ESL certif-icate gained through coursesoffered by the University of Notre Dame): I am tutoringin Lima. Everywhere else,there was a strong presenceof Hispanic or other immi-grants that I worked with.”Having been to NewGuinea before, she prettymuch knows what she is get-ting into.“It’s definitely differentthan the States, especially theculture. They have a tremen-dous work ethic, especially foreducation,” she continued. “If they cannot cut it education-ally, they ended up going backto their villages to get mar-ried and work in the gardens,especially the girls. They areso respectful as well.“The things we take forgranted on a daily basis arenot there everyday experi-ence. Many of them don’thave even an outhouse — it’sliterally a hole in the ground.The compound we are athas flush toilets and runningwater. We do have solar pan-els for electricity but if theyhaven’t had sun for a while,which also happens at times,there’s no electricity and nohot showers.“The last time I was there,we had two stations for ourtelevision but because it’s sat-ellite, if it’s raining — whichit does a lot — they don’tcome in. Their diet consists of a lot of fruits and vegetablesthat they grow themselves.The bread they eat is similarto a sweet potato; there’s a lotmore nutrition.”Education is not the onlything Sr. Tina is involvedin: she is on the board of Tender Times Day Care inDelphos and is also a keycomponent of the “SuppersOn Us” Community Unityorganization in Delphos thathelps provide free meals forthe needy.She also interacts quitea bit with the DelphosRay McKowen Knights of Columbus Council 1362 andits Columbian Squires, attend-ing various functions for bothas invited. She recently wasawarded the Toledo DiocesanReligious of the Year fromthe K of C.“I will miss the friends Ihave made in Delphos; I willmiss working with RCIA;there’s a lot of good peopleinvolved. I will likely leaveDelphos Aug. 13 or 14 andthen depart for New GuineaAug. 16,” she concluded.
