Dear my Confreres, families and friends of the Missionaries of Africa. My heart is full of joy and gratitude for the graces and blessings that the Almighty God has showered on me in this month of August. I am really grateful to God for choosing me, consecrating me and sending me into his vineyard as His humble servant. I acknowledge that the ordination I received on 4th August was not as a result of my own merits but as a result of God’s own grace and mercy towards the sinners. It is for that reason that I salute Him. Many thanks go to all of you my confreres for the support you gave me before, during and after my ordination. I really feel that I belong to a caring family of Cardinal Lavigerie. With my heart full of joy, am very grateful to my confreres in the community of Ndola (Piet van Heijst, Franciszek Szczurek and Didasio Mwanza) for their love, care, support and encouragements. During my three months stay in this community, I have really experienced true brotherhood and I have learnt how to be at the service.
