A FAREWELL…. AND A DAY FOR THE KIDS…..
The Mercy Center in Kong Toey, Bangkok kindly invites you to a social benefit event to mark the departure of Rex Burington.
The Kids of the Mercy Center are orphans, AIDS infected or otherwise socially stigmatized children who benefit …from generous community support. Father Joe runs the center and can use every bit of help we can offer.
Rex Burington has been an expat of Bangkok since the days of the Asian Economic Crisis some 14 years ago. He journeyed though enumerable lives here and is infinitely grateful to the Thai people, the city of Bangkok, cultural groups, community and friends for their contributions to his life. Rex is now due back in United States (San Francisco) to pursue a degree in “Integral Counseling Psychology” at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Although he is keen to make this move, he will miss Thailand immeasurably!
