Today the 17th July 2017, here in our SVD Epiphany parish in Arusha, Tanzania, have started the house blessing for all our parishioners. The program will run until mid August. We have about 1500 families from the last year’s records.
We are blessing 2 Christian communities (Jumuia) per day, starting from 4pm. The kick-off has been successful covering 86 homes.
As we traversed the streets, three Lutheran families pleaded that we do not bypass them as we blessed the homes of their neighbours.
We pray for the blessings to make our christian homes really a place where all that visit find Christ.
