Grieve what you’ve lost;
Rediscover what you haven’t;
Know who you are;
Love who you are becoming.
A movement of OMF TCK/MK Alumni called Chefoo Reconsidered continues as more adult TCKs engage with each other, processing their experiences – particularly in boarding – and the effect these have had on their lives. The hope is that participants will be able to move forward as they grow in understanding, deepen relationships and find freedom to be themselves.
Two events have already been held at the site of the Chefoo School in Malaysia (October 2014 and March 2016), as well as gatherings in the UK, Canada, USA and Australia.
Now Alumni of the Chefoo schools in Japan and the Philippines are organising events for 2017. While these events are independent of OMF, as an organisation we are encouraged to see any process that leads to increased wholeness, healing and reconciliation. Each TCK experience is a valid one and the times of honest sharing with those of similar backgrounds have been helpful to many.
Chefoo Reconsidered Japan – 5th – 11th June 2017 in Nanae. Alumni from all sites Kariuzawa, Sendai and Nanae are welcome.
Chefoo Reconsidered Philippines 10th – 16th July 2017, near Manila. Alumni of all Chefoo sites, Tagaytay, Calapan, Manila, Baguio and those who boarded at Faith Academy are welcome.
If you are interested in supporting one or both events financially, you can channel gifts through OMF using the code Project P74216 – Chefoo Reconsidered. If you would like your donation to be directed specifically to one of the events, please notify OMF of that.
If you would like to contact OMF as an adult TCK, or about adult TCK matters, please write to the TCK Alumni Facilitator at TCK.Alumni@omfmail.com
