After a quiet Sunday here at Bozoum, on Monday, August 14th, I’m again on the road with Father Daniel, the General Councilor, to take him to Bangui.
Tuesday morning August 15th in the Central Africa Church we too did celebrate the Assumption of Mary. I preside over the Mass in our Carmel convent, in which the congregation greets Father Matteo, who after four years spent here, leaves Bangui to come to live with us in Bozoum. In the afternoon I go to the airport to welcome the twelve SIRIRI volunteers from Prague, from Paris and from Nice to lead the teachers training as part of the "Teaching with fun" project. This year the teachers to be trained will be over 200. Because of the large number there will be five groups, under the direction of SIRIRI volunteers, but also by Bozoum teachers who have already attended the training and, above all, they have an opportunity to put it into practice by teaching this method, involving a lot of kids leading them to an excellent level of preparation, beginning from the very first classes.
On Wednesday we leave at 5.30 am with two cars. For the SIRIRI people it's all a surprise, and despite the bad shape of the roads, at 1.00 pm we reach Bozoum.
The next day I am already working with teacher-trainers in order to be ready for the great training session that will begin this Monday, lasting until Saturday August 26th.
