“As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, “Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you” (Lk 11:27).

In the world today, their are many men and women who have left everything behind and dedicated their whole life to imitating Christ and serving humanity selflessly each day. These are the missionaries who work in and out of their home countries.

A missionary leaves his parents and kin unattended and goes out to serve other people with an undivided heart. Sometimes these men and women work in so remote and far distance lands from home that they rarely even get information about the welfare of their aging or sick parents.

However, God always takes care of these mothers and fathers of his servants in many ways. When the missionary goes out there to serve, there are others who are left behind and closer to his home. Visiting these families is a wonderful gesture to make them feel part of the mission of Christ. to make them realize that they have contributed enoumously to the mission by giving birth, bringing up and educating a son or a daughter, who now serves the Lord in far distance land.

It is in this spirit that our Provincial Superior Fr. Anthony Amissah, has set out to visit the families of the confreres working away from home. On behalf of all these families, JamboKenTan would like to thank him for this good gesture.

Fr. Lawrence Muthee, SVD.
