Hut Built for Elderly Grandmother and Her Grandchildren

Today is Thursday and I am in Shangombo with Fr. Pius visiting a grandmother and her grandchildren. The parents of the children are both deceased so they live with their grandmother in this hut the Oblates built for her.IMG_3122

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.
