Today, the 21st December 2015, we celebrated Mass in our community around our confrere Fr Norbert Nkingwa who lost his maternal uncle, Mr Barnabas Kiyuga, on Thursday. His funeral Mass and burial is taking place in his home village in Mwanza, Tanzania.
Riding a bike may be as difficult as crossing a river on a traditional boat made out of a log. This is what Norbert Nkingwa experienced recently. Reaching the Luombwa River from Serenje was already an achievement and riding a bike proved more difficult to do on the sand. Keeping the balance is the main challenge. But what about doing it while crossing the river? Some time back, Faustin Kerumbe did it with a motorbike. Please, have a look at the seriousness of the mother crossing with her children. Who’s next?
Between the 2nd and 7th March 2015, six young confreres in their first term of mission in Southern Province (SAP) held their meeting in Malawi along the lake shore of Malawi at Chitsulo Conference Centre at Chipoka (between Salima and Mua). The confreres who took part includes Frédéric Ajaruva Bedijo, Norbert Nkingwa, Saju Jose Akkara, Florent Sibiri Sawadogo, Boris Yabre and Simeon Kalore.
The meeting was animated by Deogratias Ngowi and Kombé Dit Moïse Yébédié. The young confreres shared their experiences, the joy and challenges they faced with in their first term as Missionaries. It was also a moment to relax and recharge their batteries, ready to resume their mission with renewed zeal. The sharing was very enriching and a learning experience. The meeting was animated with a spirit of openness, brotherly and fraternity. All confreres were happy and grateful to the SAP Province for giving them that precious opportunity.
