Comboni Lay Missionaries

Greetings to everyone from Anchilo (Nampula-Mozambique)

Tito

I am Tito, a Comboni Lay Missionary of the Diocese of Balsas, Maranhão (Brazil).

After a long time of formation and mission and waiting because of Covid, I could finally leave for the mission ad gentes in Mozambique, Africa.

I left Brazil on the 5th and arrived in Mozambique on the 7th at night.

The trip was long and tiring, but nothing stopped me from continuing to reach my final destination where God called and sent me for this mission.

Here I was well received and I am slowly getting to know and adapting to this new reality of life and mission.

Through the intercession of St. Daniel Comboni, may the God of life bless me with a beautiful and blessed mission.

Pray for me, for the Mozambican people and for the mission.

I will be praying for you.

Hugs to all.

Tito, Comboni Lay Missionary.

And as the Macua people say, Salama salama Koxukuru Ampwene Muluku.

Path to mission

Regimar-y-Valmir

“Do I thus follow certain of the mission I have to fulfill?” Time is strange, situations, the unexpected, the pandemic and new waves, the non-fulfillment of projections, change, waiting, expectation, joys and sorrows, beginnings and new beginnings populate our human history.

In the dialogue between Jesus, Peter and Andrew, the latter already knew the Lord and had even announced him to his brother, he is delighted and surprised by the Lord’s invitation “I will make you fishers of men”. Thus the mission is being accomplished.

Africa? (Everyone asks) when? The date has arrived, today begins our journey to Mozambique. But the certainty we have is that everything will come the way the Lord wants, or not. It is the true adventure of living according to God’s will. It is not easy, but He is my refuge and strength!

May the Lord give us and renew us each day the hope and the certainty that “when we do what God wants, we are sure to be rewarded at the end of everything”. Here is the logic of being Christian, of believing, of living in God and for God! So let’s live for Him, every day, and be grateful for the life that pulsates in us, for the little miracles of everyday life, and above all for the opportunities that are presented to us to mature humanly and spiritually. It is impossible to listen to the Lord and not give Him an answer. “Leaving the nets immediately, they followed him.”

Mission is to leave, but it doesn’t mean to devour kilometers. As our beloved Dom Elder Câmara used to say. Mission is to let God conduct our life and our history, just as He conducted the life of St. Daniel Comboni and the life of our mother Mary of Nazareth. We ask for their intersection so that our mission is guided by the divine force, we count on your prayers to accomplish this mission together.

And you, which net or nets do you need to leave? Or what do you need to abandon yourself to the Lord?

Let us follow! God bless us and lead us!

Regimar and Tito, CLM Brazil

Yesterday was celebrated the sending Mass of Regimar and Valmir, Comboni Lay Missionaries (CLM).

The sending forth took place at the community Nossa Senhora Aparecida, at Ipê Amarelo – Contagem-MG.

The missionary couple decided to go on an overseas mission when they were participating in the GEC (Comboni Spirituality Group) of Balsas. They will travel to Mozambique this Wednesday, January 5th.

Let us continue to accompany this missionary couple with our friendship, prayer and sharing. Daniel Comboni, pray for us.
