Le Kapokier Rouge, health center of the Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of Africa, brings hope to the Chadian people and to certain neighboring countries. In this month of grace, we have the joy of sharing with you what is for us a sign of hope as we so often talk about it: “Let us be bearers of hope!”
Since May, our sister Monique Pouyez has left France to lend a hand in the construction of a new building at the Kapokier Rouge centre. Today it is completed and we give thanks to God who gave strength to those who contributed to it. After the working time, we organized the inauguration day which took place at the center on 23/11/2022. In gratitude, all the staff rejoiced in this work. In good collaboration and a pleasant atmosphere, they moved to begin work in the two new buildings. The mass and the blessing of the buildings followed, then the toast of friendship.
We note that the Ministry of Health appreciates this work for the well-being of the Chadian people. In his speech, the delegate from the Ministry of Health said: “People who work in health have a great responsibility and they are collaborators with God. Because God gives life through those people of good will who agree to put their intelligence at the service of others to give them a quality of life”.
Everyone thanked our sister Gloria Sedes who had this initiative and who shared her knowledge for the life-giving work of God. The word of thanks also went to the Church which entrusted us with this mission and to the congregation which accepted it.
In his speech, the mayor of Deli referred to the Bible: “Sister Gloria is like the woman Dorcas in the Bible who did everything to help those who needed her company. Gloria, your presence is a blessing to us and from now on we will call you Gloria Dorcas.”
In turn, Gloria thanked all the people who have helped bring about the wonders of God among his chosen ones.
Patience is the best tree to plant. The beginning seemed to be impossible, but it is God who gives grace. Today, we rejoice in this unconditional love of God which shows us that what seems difficult to us, for God, is like a breath that passes. In our community, we are proud of what is happening in our mission environment because we find ourselves in one of the concerns of the congregation “to be bearers of hope”.
Finally, we thank all our sisters who have not ceased to support us with their prayers. May God bless our common mission and give us the strength to accomplish his will in our lives.
Sr Joselyne, for the community.
