On World Mission Day 2020 – the one time in the whole year when the global Church comes together in celebration and support of mission – the Pontifical Mission Societies of England and Wales (Missio) have chosen to honor the courageous and selfless women and men who are working in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world, as the note sent to Agenzia Fides informs.
Sister Nilcéia is a Brazilian missionary working in a health clinic in a remote area of Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world. She has responded to God’s call by devoting her life to the practical care and spiritual nourishment of the most vulnerable. The nun says: “Our small clinic is an oasis of hope. Despite the challenges, we persevere in this work because we love God and we love his people. I believe in the goodness of God and we serve as Jesus did. But sometimes, the darkness seems very dark. We share all that we have but sometimes it is not enough to save a sick child. The need here in Malawi is great but the Lord is faithful, and we continue to serve. We take courage from knowing you are with us in this mission.
Together we are one family, one faith, one Church, and together we share love through good actions”.
