Comboni Lay Missionaries

The Comboni family is growing!

On days 1 to 3 of May met at the house of the Comboni Missionaries in Nürnberg our small group of CLM. For two years we met regularly on the theme “Mission Motherland”. During many years each of us have realized not only to be touched and moved by the charisma of Daniel Comboni, but also to walk with the Comboni Family. At the beginning of the meeting we exchanged ideas with Father Karl Peinhopf (new provincial of the DSP) on the current changes, challenges and priorities of the mission as “permanent heart” of the Comboni Family.We continue with an intense work on the future configuration of the group, the real possibility of making a common work (considering that we are distributed from Vienna to Saxony) and the question of seeing how we join among us to grow and give wings to the missionary work in our day to day despite the distances. We are Pia Schilmair, Birgit and Christioph Koch, Brigitte Kreiter, Martina Schrott, Barbara Ludewig and brother Friedbert Tremmel of the Comboni Missionaries as advisor. We decided to risk in this way as CLM group and throw our skills for the common good of the Comboni Family. Brigitte Kreiter and Barbara Ludewig were chosen as representatives of the group.

Now at Easter we enjoy some days off, which is good from time to time.
One is away from work and has more time for oneself.
My passport is still at Kampala but I was promissed soon everything will be ok!
In a few days time I will meet Elena here at Matany.

Many greetings from Matany,

Many greetings from Alenga in Uganda

Dear friends,
I hope you are all well. Myself I am very fine here. Meanwhile i feel
at home and I am very happy to help the pupils by teaching
computer lessons.
Through help from Germany I got ten laptops. During day time
I am in the classroom and in the evenings I teach the sisters
and the people from the nearby village how to work with a computer.
Every day I am very busy and happy to give the people here
some perspectives for their future.

HAPPY EASTER and many greetings from Alenga in Uganda,
