Two of the members of the leadership team of the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Immaculate Conception came to visit their three Sisters who are here in Yambio. They invited us to a big dinner/reception for them. All the religious in the city were invited plus some of the priests, including the bishop. Also someone from the school where Sr. Helen is teaching was also invited. I think there were about 40 of us. It was a nice evening. Then we had the Sisters come for lunch today. We had a nice time with them. Both Sr. Jeanette and Sr. Veronica have been to Peru to see their Sisters there. In fact Sr. Elena has translated for them many times. What a small world it is to meet someone who knows our Sisters from Piura in South Sudan!
We have this week of not teaching and then start full classes on March 9. It is a short break. We have people coming from all over. Some started our program in Malakal but since it isn’t able to operate they are coming here to finish.
