Farewell to Pierre Lafollie, M.Afr – Lusaka, November 25, 2016.

11-pierre-lafollie-sap-blog-nov-2016-bThe M.Afr gathered on Friday evening November 25 to pay tribute to a great missionary who spent 50 years in Zambia, primarily in Bemba land in the North-East part of Zambia. He lived in Mbala, Ilondola, Kayambi, Lwitikila, Serenje, Mulanga, Chalabesa, Isoka, Mulilonsolo, Mpika/Lwitikila, Lua-Luo, Kasama and Lusaka.

We are very grateful for the dedication, self-giving and holy priest he has been for us all throughout so many years. Pierre Lafollie was and still is very knowledgeable in the Chibemba language and rituals. See below few pictures starting from his time of studies in Carthage in early 60s. Some will remember Paul Gallen (+2013), Pierre Lafollie, Denis Bernardin (+2011) and Antoon Coninx (+2016) on a picture taken in 1982.

Dear Pierre, we are already missing you. With love from Zambia.
