It was April 29, 2014 the ordination of Bishop Peter Smith. The Holy Spirit Sisters attended this special and holy occation. On the way to the reception the sisters were standing talking about the beaut of the mass.
Deacon An Vu passed by, he stoped and talk to the sisters, just as Jesus did with the disciples on the way to Emmaus. He asked about our mission and where we come from.
We told him we are from Tanzania and we work with elderly.
Mr. An Vu with joy explain to us about the Family of St. Terese and their mission. He ask us if we can help elderly in Tanzania. Yes Deacon we can do it.
We started on the first of September 2014 to distribute rice to Tanzanian elderly. They were so happy praise God like the Isralate who ate manna from heaven.
