Sister Anne Cahill writes again from Tanzania and gives a progress report, part of which we give in the following excerpt. As you will see she acknowledges some help received from her native Watergrasshill.

From 12.30 am – 2.30 pm. on Sunday,

December 30th. The children flocked to our dispensary compound. As usual Sr. Cecilia (OLA, Ghana) led them through the entertainment session, song and dance competitions as well as musical chairs TC. The winners were thrilled with their gifts – sent by Peter Collins, P.O. Watergrasshill – thanks to all the boy scouts girl guides and Watergrasshill primary school children for providing such a huge box of goodies! Afterwards the ‘Diaba’ (barrels) four plastic barrels of rice two of meat stew, on of boiled beans and another of cabbage was sent out. By this time Sophia’s staff were ‘at the ready’ the washing of hands and serving of food started. As well as an overloaded plate of food each child was given a little bag of goodies – sweets, biscuits, balloons, pencils, biros, and crayons. As usual no grain of rice was wasted. Each one was thrilled with the feast. We never have a problem with regards to discipline and all the OLA Dispensary Staff as well as fifteen secondary students were in attendance. Sr. Monica (Nigeria) and myself were also moving around if any help was needed.

Today we gather in God’s presence, to speak, to listen to renew our faith, to be nourished for our ongoing pilgrimage.
