I met Johann and Beatrix Cohausz, Rotarian from Salzburg at Mario Hotel at the island of Sumba last week. Their youngest son the very tall Benedict are doing volunteers work at a school in Waingapu Sumba Timur. A very special heart from a young man, when he finished his high school at the age of 17, he has been having good life for 17 years with his diplomat parents who moved from one country to the other, he wants to give back to the society. He give English lessons for free.

” To give back to the society” is also a key word for us all as Rotarians. We are given so much in this life, we dont only have to say thank you, but also have to give back to the society, we can learn a lot from this young boy.

Johann had a small accident that his left leg is badly swallen and need to make it stright all the time until he gets better. That is why when he visited us at our home this morning, you can see on the foto he should put his left leg up stright.

We had a lot of fun talks about many things especially about lives, Rotary makes us feel that we know each other years and years already, and all stories flows on the table as if we have been family and friends for many years. That is the power of Rotary Friendship. Only through friendship we can do more and bigger things together.

After an espresso meeting, we took them to our club meeting whis is only a few steps away, meet with AG Julia Rivai D3420 District Admin Chair, and a few other Rotarians present. Today many of our members are excused because many of them are on duties outside the Kuta area, but the meeting was warm and friendly with Nasi bungkus Kedaton.

Next month, end of august, PP Marina and I will go passing salzburg and of course we are already planning to visit this new feeling old friends, with the Rotary International magic power of friendship.
