“Land in the Wind”

Missionary Journey in Retrospect

By: Sr. Tess Espina, FSP

Appointed to Sabah
A few years ago, I was appointed to Sabah, in Malaysia. While waiting for the approval of my visa, I already experienced fears and anxieties. What would life be like in Sabah? A non-Christian frontier. Shall I go or not? Trusting in God’s love which is as certain as the dawn, I let go of my fears of personal inadequacies, of loneliness and hardships. I took a leap of faith and together with Sr. Margaret ventured into my new mission land SABAH, the ‘land below the wind,’ so called because it is never visited by typhoons.
