MIMSAF, the Friends of the Missionaries of Africa in Zambia, invited all the M.Afr and M.S.O.L.A. for a special Mass at the Good Shepherd’s church, Kabwata, Lusaka, to commemorate the death of our founder Cardinal Lavigerie. A snack was offered after Mass for everyone including the altar boys. Antoon Oostveen was the main celebrant. He enlightened some aspects of the personality of our founder thanking God for his inspirational strength which is helping us to accomplish our mission in Africa up to now.
Born and bred in Kasama, Location at house No. F37, had experience of the surrounding of location. Ku Lwaluwo we would call it, was where we had fields for maize and each farming time was an experience of climbing the hill past through the Kasama Lodge, hospital sometimes till we reach the fields. Coming back was easier because kutentemuka. This was not the same experience I had on 23rd February 2015. We had gone to pay condolences to our auntie in Musa village who lost her husband. I decided to call our son Priest Fr Saju and he invited us to visit their house. Oh thank God we had dinner got some good constructive comments about future MIMSAF calendars. Then I learnt that Fr Oswald was also in Kasama and so I called him. Surprisingly happy also invited us to visit Lua-Luo. “You need to see Lua-Luo bana Sikateyo”, he said.
At 17:00 hours Fr Oswald and Fr John showed us the way to the Formation Centre. Whaaal! Up to now I still cannot forget the peace that resign there. My sister only said these people go through a lot. You can only tell that we were there by viewing these pictures but it will be difficult for anyone to imagine how we felt. That we leave it your imagination.
