Unsere Kinder im GAMB, Schutzengel-
Wir haben nun endlich unser neues Schulgebäude bezogen!
Mit Ihrer Unterstützung konnte das neue Schuljahr am 12. September beginnen. Teilen Sie die Freude unserer GAMB Kinder, die die Schule besuchen.
Sie haben mit Ihrer moralischen, materiellen und geistlichen Unterstützung ermöglicht, jenen Kindern, die nie ein Kinderzimmer oder eine Grundschule lernen kennen sollten, eine Basis für die Zukunft zu legen.
Wir danken Ihnen für Ihre freundliche Unterstützung und bitten Sie natürlich weiterhin, Ihr gutes Werk an verlassenen Kindern fortzusetzen.
Liebe Pfarrgemeinde Zellhausen, ich werde euch im Oktober besuchen, um den Gottesdienst zu zelebrieren.
Msgr. Prof. Pfarrer Obiora Ike
