We just got a message from Georges Jacques in Abidjan about the sad news of the death of Mrs Violet, the mother of Martin Kasongo, student in our Forth Phase Centre. She was the elderly sister of his mother and the one who took care of Martin after the death of his parents. It seems that Mrs Violet was accidentally hit by a car in Mansa. The community in Abidjan is helping Martin in his grief and we all pray for him. May she rest in peace!

Dear confreres, I would like to inform you that I journeyed to and from Zambia safely. Now am back to Abidjan (Ivory Coast) and have already resumed my academic activities.
On behalf of my family and indeed on my own behalf, I would like to pass my sincere gratitude to the society, to the province and to you all for your support and encouragement on the occasion of the death of mum. Your prayers and your words of encouragement were consoling and life giving: they helped me and my family to live the event with faith. Thank you very much and may the Good Lord bless you in your different areas of mission. My family sends you cordial greetings. United in prayer.
Kasongo Martin in Abidjan.
