My name is Father Juan Gabriel, I’m Argentinian (diocese of Buenos Aires), currently a missionary in Mozambique, in the diocese of Xai Xai.
I’m writing to thank you for the money of the intentions of the Mass sent to me by my Bishop, Dom Lucio Andrice Muandula.
I am pastor of the Mangundze Mission. We have 42 communities, chapels. I am alone, as a priest, to attend to it. We are in a rural area. Some communities are more than 90 km away from the headquarters, my home.
My wish is to stay in this diocese for good. I do not want to go back to Argentina.
I tell you that I have a piece of paper in the sacristy, where I write down the masses I celebrate, to keep track.
