“Follow” us to Zambia!

On July 4th I begin my journey with the Missionary Oblates to our missions in the African nation of Zambia.

I will be traveling with Fr. Jim Chambers, OMI and other young men, spending over two weeks there visiting our missions in some of our most remote outstations. I fly from St. Louis to Washington, DC on July 4th, then on July 5th we all leave together for Lusaka, Zambia with layovers in Ethiopia and Zimbabwe.

Looking for Zambia on a map - old school!

During this time I will witness the work of the Oblates and visit with the people they serve. Along the way I will share photos and videos here on my blog.  Feel free to come back and check for new information.

Meanwhile, email subscribers to the Missionary Oblates will receive ongoing updates during my trip. If you have questions while I am away you can leave a comment or call the Office of Charitable and Planned Giving at 1-800-233-6264.

Please continue to remember the Missionary Oblates and those we serve in your prayers.

I work for the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate in Belleville, Illinois in the USA. The Oblates are a Roman Catholic congregation of priests and brothers founded after the French Revolution by St. Eugene De Mazenod to work among the poor. Today there are nearly 4,000 missionaries working in more than 60 countries around the world.

  1. I love this! I will be following you. I’m sure it will be a very interesting and informative trip. Thank you.

  2. What an experience! You will certainly add to your “places traveled” list this time – not to mention looking into the face of God at every stop. Blessings as you travel. Take lots of pictures and be safe, John.
