A very special weekend for all missionaries
Once a year Diospi Suyana’s voluntary members of staff spend three intense days in the Holy Valley of the Incas. This year’s theme was “Faith, hope and love” for which Dr Miriam Boeker, Dr Klaus John, Dr Martina John and Dr Julian Swanson had prepared themselves thoroughly. A band took care of a successful musical accompaniment.
The programme offered a lot of time for group activities, games and conversations. The children’s lantern march and a Holy Communion service led by Udo Klemenz were further highlights of the weekend. At the gala evening grown-ups and children proved their top-level acting skills.
The excellent weather and fantastic atmosphere did their bit so that the missionaries could recharge their batteries. The group of 120 participants was the largest since 2007 and it goes without saying that it was an international group – the following countries were represented: Austria, Australia, Ecuador, Germany, Holland, Peru and USA. A big dankeschön to Sandra Bacher and Katharina Besold for their excellent organisation of the weekend.
