Dear Mission friends and supporters, May God shower His abundant grace upon you and bless you in your life and in your hard work.
I have already received from the bank the notification for two checks which you sent us, one in the amount of € 20,000 for the Church of the Annunciation and another in € 5,520 for the students who study through the educational adoption program. I would like to thank you wholeheartedly for your kind response. These days we are finishing the Church of St. Herodion in Kolwezi, the third parish within the city, and I hope we will soon be able to start rebuilding the Church of the Annunciation in Manika, because our Christians there have grown a lot and we need to create more parishes to accommodate all of them.
Our daily struggle may be hard and painful, but it is also blessed when we see our Christians struggling and sacrificing for Christ. Their suffering is indescribable, which is why we do our best to support them in any possible way. These days that the schools opened, we helped them by distributing stationery and other school necessities; however, the children go to school famished since they have no food to put in their mouths.
That is why I turn to your blessed Fraternity for help. If you could send us a 10 tonne container with various food items to alleviate their hunger, it would be a God-sent blessing.
