It was on the 30th of April, Feast of Our Lady of Africa, that I found myself and my companions in the  basilica of St. Anne’s well surrounded by friends who had come to witness our Missionary Oath. The Mass was presided over by the Superior General of the Society, Rev. Fr. Richard Kuuia Bawoobr who was visiting the community at that time. Such a day had always seemed to be in a far distance; a day that belonged to the future. However on 30th April, the future and the present embraced and culminated in a ‘Yes’. It was a day full of emotions and trust in the Lord who asks us to stand in His presence and serve Him. For nine years now, I have journeyed with the Missionaries of Africa and the journey has not always been smooth and easy. Just like anywhere in life, there have been times of joy and of sorrow but in all circumstances the Lord has always stood by me. If I made my final and perpetual commitment, it is basically because of the trust I have in the Lord. My vocation story has less to do with me; rather it has more to do with the Lord.
