SNAPSHOTS FROM CONGO: A PRIEST, THE WOMEN, AND AN ORPHAN

Jun 21, 14 SNAPSHOTS FROM CONGO: A PRIEST, THE WOMEN, AND AN ORPHAN

I write this blog while I am still in Congo, before my memory loses the smallest of the details.Focuz

These are not only words; I wish you could be able to smell and feel what I have experienced and witnessed.  But these lines, I am afraid, are all I can share with you as a reader.

Read them slowly, since they tell the stories of real people. These are their lives.  Treasure them, as they portray the voices of those that struggle every day to just survive.

Congo, I write this for those I have met, and for those who will be in my mind for the rest of my life. I promise not to forget.

These are a few of the snapshots:

While I finish this blog I can hear the voice of a woman who told me:  Where are the schools? The hospitals? Why does a woman have to see her children die of starvation? Is life only about work and death?

    Lore thank you very much for sharing your experience in the Congo. It’s amazing that in this century people still eating people. Is really shocking.

    I resent the fact that a person who should be the ambassador of love of Jesus Crist towards women and men; and follow His footsteps in the reinvindication of women’s his only interest is to destroy wildlife and open a bigger gap between women and men.

    My prayers for these women is that one day in a near future they can have equal rights, rights to food, educations, health care, etc.
