With much joy, the long awaited moment has arrived, as we welcomed our two young Missionary Sisters from the Queen of Peace Province, Tanzania. It was indeed a blissful and exciting day for our Province in South Africa as well as for these two young Sisters. Amidst the Corona pandemic, on 21st March, Sr. Dorothea Laurent Lyimu a qualified counselor and Sr. Suzana Amon Kimario a junior sister arrived in Cape Town.
They had an adventures and enjoyable journey as they travelled to the unknown country from their familiar surroundings. The love of Christ urged them to accept this unique call with faith and hope. The Sisters from the Pinelands community and St. Joseph’s community greeted the new missionaries in the Provincial house with prayer, wishes and a small sisterly gathering.
Until they are oriented to the new reality, both sisters will be staying in our Pineland community and later they will be engaged in the different apostolates at St. Joseph’s home as well as in pastoral works. We are grateful to Sr. Basilisa Jacob, Provincial Superior and her council for their kindness and generosity in sharing the Sisters with the South African Province.
