A Few Lines of Gratitude

Jean-Guy-Jim-Robi-add2Thank you Zambia! You have put the fire back into our hearts. You have rejuvenated our spirits. You have given us a sense of well-being. You have affirmed us as Missionaries of Africa as we slowly enter the winter of our lives.
Thank you for your warm welcome.
Thank you especially to all our confrères from the Provincial and his staff to all the young men we met who were on their journey from the novitiate to their respective countries to begin their stage experience.
We were amazed at the changes that have taken place since the 27 years that I’ve been away and Jean Guy’s seven.
Our eyes were wide open at the site of cars, traffic jams, asphalt roads, cell phone, TV dishes, soap, cooking oil, salt, water, cheese, flour, cement, iron sheets, etc. being so plentiful.
We enjoyed all our Zambian friends we met. Their warmth and hospitality is still the same.
During the Communion hymn, which was being sung by the local congregation, Jean Guy shared with me with tears in his eyes “it’s at a moment like this that we realize what we have given up by accepting to do home service.” That says it all.
United in Him. God is good!
Gene and Jean Guy
