Hello Mam, I am fine and the work
here in my country is going very well.
I have met with many religious in the
archdiocese and their support is lively.
I was able to enroll Fr. John Fong, and
others who gathered at the Synod.
Transportation is a problem for me as
the invitations continue to pour in for
my visit to distant villages. In one case,
I walked over 31 miles carrying my
supplies and Sacramentals. In July, over
145 members were enrolled. The joy on
their faces and their gratitude for our
visit cannot be expressed in words.
There are about 300 Catholics in the
Nabukavesi village. I made the five First
Saturdays and the walk was nearly 25
miles. When we arrived, the priest there,
a member of the ULRA, heard my
confession. Mass was attended by many
who had come for the occasion and
we enrolled about 200 new members.
This took over three hours to do. They
were very happy. I was invited by six
more villages to visit as the people are
eager to enroll. Please, I need more
Sacramentals. I am sorry that I cannot
send pictures as I have no camera.

I am a Catholic from Belarus. Almost
twenty years ago, you sent me a gift. It
was a big package of St. Philomena/
St. Michael Medals and several bottles
of holy oil. Since that time, it was my
joy giving them to people who had
some troubles, who cried on the street
or at the hospital. Please, may I have
more of these holy things to share? I
cannot send any donation for them,
but I send you my love and prayers.

Thank you so much for the box of
Rosaries, Scapulars, Miraculous Medals,
holy oil and pictures. After the Holy
Mass, our priest, Fr. Emil, blessed the
Brown Scapulars and gave them to all
the faithful who were at Mass and made
their Consecration to Our Lady of
Mt. Carmel. It was a beautiful, solemn
holiday! I have sent Scapulars to our
Bishops and my very good collaborator.
They all pray to St. Philomena. One
bishop has a big request for you. He
would like to receive a little statue of
St. Philomena. Please send one if you
can. I am sending 24 new groups of
members to register. Thank you so
much for all you do for us!

In May, we left Zimbabwe at 5 a.m. and
arrived at 6 p.m. the same day, covering
150 miles. The Sisters met us at the
Mozambique border. A visiting priest
from Chimoio celebrated Holy Mass.
We instructed the faithful about the
Living Rosary and enrolled 90 new
members. The faithful were so happy to
be taught about the Rosary so they can
pray to Our Blessed Mother for more
priests. They have Mass once a month.
