    To you, confreres Missionaries of Africa in Lusaka, to the Sisters of Our Lady of Africa (MSOLA), to MIMSAF members, I would like to say thank you so much for the contribution you brought during the launching of the “year of Consecrated life” in the archdiocese of Lusaka. It was during the same occasion that we had to exhibit few items as a family. “It is very exciting to see the ‘white fathers’ back in Zambia”. Comment of one of the participants who saw Fr. Romaric dressed in Gandurah (our missionary habit).
    The ‘Lavigerie Family’ tried and will continue working hand in hand to promote our missionary present in different part of the country. We always learn something from such gatherings. May the Father of us all continue sowing seed of unity and love in our hearts, so that we may spread peace, joy and justice in our milieu.
    Thanks a lot and blessed Lenten Season.
    Fr Camille Konkobo, M.Afr, Vocation and Missionary Animator, Zambia.
