Just like a “Mission a\nla Montfort” the children were also taught basic prayers and some stories on\nthe life of the holy “Apostolic Missionary” which everybody enjoyed. After the\ncatechism the food prepared by the mission partners in the area was served. The\nchildren really enjoyed the afternoon of sharing and laughter, which was\nvisible on their faces.

With hearts filled with joy for the goodness of God, the children\nwent home bringing with them the experience of God’s compassion and loving\ncare. They are grateful not only to God but also to all those who in one way or\nanother made this event successful for the glory of GOD ALONE! -Fr. Federick\nYumang, SMM
