Caritas, tests and demolitions
In the weekend Fr. Luk, a Belgian Salesian who is the National Director of Caritas Centrafrique, came to visit us here in Bozoum. The purpose of his mission was to visit the Caritas of our diocese, a reality which is under my responsibility. We talked a lot about how to make Caritas more and more dynamic, because it shouldn’t be a kind of NGO financed by external sources, but should become instead able to serve its purpose which is to liven up the charity in the various parishes, in such a way that Christians can look after troubled people and act consequently.
On Monday we received a visit from Andrea Tani, who lives in Bangui as representative of the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation. With him we visited the different realities of the Mission.
With regard to the work of enlargement of the church, it was a rather important week. We have demolished part of the previous building, and posed other two large trusses of about 11 meters each. Now finally we begin to see something really exciting! All we see now as a reality it’s due to a good team of masons and carpenters, and some volunteers. Here a video: 
Wednesday and Thursday we welcomed about 150 students from other schools who would like to attend our elementary school "Isidore Bakanjia" or our Elementary-High School "St. Augustin". Those admitted were around thirty. Unfortunately the educational system of the Country is still in severe crisis.
