“When those with money and those who need money share a mission, we see a central sign of new life in the Spirit of Christ. We belong together in our work because Jesus has brought us together and our fruitfulness depends on staying connected with him.” (A Spirituality of Fundraising – Henri Nouwen)
This training workshop, facilitated by our RNDM International Mission Development Office and enjoyed by the Mission Promoters from 17 areas throughout the Congregation, was a time of grace for those of us whose mission it is to journey with others in partnership. Our RNDM International Formation Centre in Davao, Mindanao, Philippines, with the peace, beauty and tranquillity of this ideal setting, enabled us to reflect and share on policies, procedures and evaluations as well as on many aspects of partnership for mission as we plan for the future. The Newsletters give a summary of our activities over the two weeks.
We are grateful for our many partners in mission, who support, encourage, help and donate. We appreciate your prayer for our missions. Henry J.M. Nouwen expresses it so beautifully and I quote: “together we have something to offer – friendship, prayer, peace, love , fidelity, affection, ministry with those in need – and these things are so valuable that people are willing to make their resources available to sustain them”. May we together continue to make visible God’s Kingdom for those who are most in need, vulnerable and neglected in our world. Thank you and God bless you. You are remembered in the daily prayers of the Sisters.
