The Lord has done marvels, holy is his Name! Coming to the end of my third year in theology, I remembered our favourite slogan when I was at Mlale Minor Seminary in Lilongwe Archdiocese, Malawi: “I run strait towards the goal.” It’s very surprising to see that many years have gone since I left Mlale but these words still remain engraved in me. I made my final oath on the 2nd May followed by my ordination as a deacon two weeks after. Nevertheless, I continue meditating upon the same slogan: “I run strait towards the goal.” Thanks to you all who accompany me up to where I am today : my parents, my brothers and sisters, the members of the entire Nyengere family, my formators starting from the moment I was aspiring up to the moment I made my final oath and all the family friends who kept me in their prayers. My missionary life has just begun. Therefore, I continue imploring for your prayers so as to remain strong in my drive to discover how best to serve the Lord.
