So humbling to visit this special place. Meeting the nuns here was a highlight and to receive a small medallion is something I will treasure.

I got shivers just entering the place. To actually see and feel and learn more of Mother Teresa's life was just inspirational. Have seen her room, her tomb and the humble museum telling her story and it just sends shivers. It seriously made me rethink aspects of my life.
