It's a Small World...News from Peru
Thank God for this machine, the world is so small as a result! I just finished chatting with fataiekuasi. I am so excited that I was able to ask her to show me where to write when she paged me to chat with her, after so many times sending with nothing appearing on the chat line from my side (koe kai ia a Kulufeinga, ha ha ha).
I am fine and happy in this God's mission. I just got back from the high mountains, visited the people there for 3 weeks. We have 108 villages to visit that belong to our parish. We have 21 parishes, and Frias is the names of my parish (one of those 21 parishes). We went in pairs, we have 2 priests, 1 deacon and one seminarian. A sister has to go with one of them. We have three sisiters in the community. One from Trinidad, her name is Michelle and one from NZ, Selena, from Whangarei, and myself from Matahau. These villages we are visiting are only visited by us once a year, lucky if they have it twice a year. It`s very hard to travel there, lucky if we have a horse to use, if not it is climbing up and down. It`s not like the big fat horses in Tonga but these are little donkeys, that sometimes I feel for the owner when he looks at my size (poor donkey)! We can walk for 8 hours to reach a place but what a blessing for me because whatever time we arrive, the people are there greeting you and there gone my tiredness forever. They have only one mass once a year and the people are very poor but they are very Christian, so that makes them pretty awesome.
So nice to hear news from Fr. Hiko, and Unaloto from Samoa, also Felise from Europe. The photos are so good to see, especially the most recent photos of everyone. I didn`t hear from Napa for a long time but I hope to see him soon. Well, that is all the news from this side and my best wishes for everyone out there. I have posted some photos from my visit to the mountains. Click here to check it out.
United always in prayers, with our Mother Mary,
'Ofa lahi atu to you all,
Sr. Saane Pofaiva in Peru
