AFRICA

OUR ONGOING MISSION IN AFRICA WILL TAKE PLACE THIS YEAR (ONCE THE BORDERS OPEN) IN TWO VILLAGES LOCATED IN THE VERY NORTHEAST OF IVORY COAST. THESE VILLAGES ARE SITUATED BY THE BLACK VOLTA RIVER. WITH THE HELP WE RECEIVED FROM DIFFERENT PLACES AROUND THE GLOBE, WE WILL BUILD A SCHOOL AND A CHURCH FOR BOTH TANTAMAN AND GALASSO BLE VILLAGES. THIS WAY, WE WILL CONTINUE THE APOSTOLIC WORK THAT SOME VOLUNTEERS COMMENCED IN 2019. WE PRAY THAT MANY VILLAGERS WILL BE BAPTIZED, EMBRACING JESUS CHRIST.

I. ORIGIN: JANUARY 2018

MISSIONARY IN THE CONFINES OF THE HIMALAYAS (NORTH SIKKIM), IN THE SOLEMNITY OF THE EPIPHANY OF THE LORD OF 2018, RESPONDING TO THE MISSIONARY MANDATE THAT JESUS CHRIST LEFT US BEFORE ASCENDING TO HEAVEN (MT 28, 19-20; MK 16, 16), AND OBEYING THE INCESSANT AND URGENT MISSIONARY CALLS OF THE LAST HIGH PONTIFFS (FROM H.H. LEON XIII, –AD EXTREMAS– TO H.H. FRANCISCO –EVANGELII GAUDIUM-), FROM THE NOTHINGNESS OF OUR FIVE LOAVES AND TWO FISH (CF MT 14, 17) , MORE ABANDONED IN THE OMNIPOTENCE OF THE LORD AND IN THE SACRED VIRGIN, FROM THE MISSIONARY PLATFORM “OMNES GENTES PROJECT” (OGP), WE LAUNCHED THE “MISSION COUNTDOWN”, WHICH IS AN APOSTOLIC PROJECT THAT SEEKS TO ANNOUNCE THE GOSPEL TO THE HUNDREDS OF TOWNS WHERE IT WAS NEVER ANNOUNCED, WHICH ARE THE POOREST OF THE POOREST TOWNS.

II. MARCH 2018

SO IT WAS THAT, IN MARCH 2018, CRISTIAN RODRIGO ITURRALDE, THANKS TO THE ALMS OF TWO FRIENDS FROM HONG KONG AND SPAIN, FLEW FROM THE HIMALAYAS TO AFRICA TO TRY TO FIND THE TRIBES OF THE MISSIONARY COUNTDOWN. CRISTIAN IN THE MIDDLE OF IMPRESSIVE ADVENTURES, FACING THE UNKNOWN AND GOING THROUGH GREAT RISKS, ENDED UP ARRIVING AT A LOST AND UNKNOWN ENCLAVE, WHICH DOES NOT APPEAR EVEN ON GOOGLE-MAPS, IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, ON THE TRIPLE BORDER OF BURKINA FASO, COSTA OF IVORY AND GHANA, NOT FAR FROM THE RADIUS OF ACTION OF THE MOHAMMEDAN JIHAD, WHERE A MUSLIM TRIBE –THE WALA-, LOCATED IN THE VILLAGE OF TANTAMA, AND A FETISHIST TRIBE – THE BIRIFOR-, LOCATED IN THE VILLAGES OF DIEDE, GALASSO. BLE, GALASSO GRAND AND MOFATE. CRISTIAN FIRST PREACHED THE GOSPEL TO THEM, WHICH WAS WELL RECEIVED.

III. JANUARY 2019

IN JANUARY 2019, THE OGP ORGANIZED A SECOND MISSIONARY EXPEDITION TO CONTINUE THE WORK BEGUN IN 2018, SENDING AN EXPEDITION MADE UP OF TWO PRIESTS AND FOUR VOLUNTEERS FROM FRANCE, BOLIVIA AND COSTA RICA. THIS SECOND EXPEDITION INTENSIFIED THE PREACHING OF THE HOLY CATHOLIC FAITH TO THOSE TWO TRIBES, AND, THANK GOD, THE FRUITS WERE AMAZING. VARIOUS MASSES WERE CELEBRATED IN BOTH TRIBES. THEY WERE THE FIRST MASSES EVER CELEBRATED IN THESE PLACES. THE BIRIFOR PARTICIPATED WITH JOY. IT WAS PREACHED IN FOUR NON-CHRISTIAN VILLAGES: TANTAMA, GALASSO BLE, MOFATE, AND DIEDE. IT WAS PREACHED THROUGH INTERPRETERS AND EVEN, THANK GOD AND PHONETIC TECHNIQUES, IN THE LOCAL DIALECT. SEMI-NOURISHED AND NAKED CHILDREN WERE DRESSED. SOME CHILDREN EXPRESSED THEIR WILLINGNESS TO ENTER THE MINOR SEMINARY TO BE THE FIRST PRIESTS IN THEIR VILLAGE. THE MUSLIM IMAM GLADLY HEARD THE PREACHING. THE MUSLIM TRIBE ASKED THE OGP TO BUILD A CATHOLIC SCHOOL AND GLADLY ACCEPTED THAT EVEN A CATHOLIC CHURCH BE BUILT.THE FETISHIST TRIBE ASKED THE OGP FOR A CATHOLIC CHURCH, A CATHOLIC SCHOOL, AND A WATER PUMP. THE CHIEF DECLARED THAT MANY OF THE TRIBE WILL BE BAPTIZED IF THE CHURCH IS MADE.

IV. JULY 2020

IN JULY 2020, THE OGP WILL SEND A THIRD MISSIONARY EXPEDITION TO BUILD THE TWO CHURCHES, THE TWO SCHOOLS, AND THE WATER PUMP. THE MISSIONARIES WILL GO ON A MOTORCYCLE AND WILL SLEEP IN TENTS OR IN THE OPEN. THE OGP WILL RECEIVE VOLUNTEERS WHO WANT TO JOIN THE EXPEDITION AND, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, ASK FOR DONATIONS TO BE ABLE TO DO THE WORKS (AT THE MOMENT, THERE ARE NO DONORS). AFTER THIS MISSIONARY EXPEDITION, THE CHURCHES WILL BE ATTENDED BY LOCAL PRIESTS AND CATECHISTS.

IN 2018, THE OGP FOUNDED THE MC (MISSION COUNTDOWN). THE OGP’S TEAM INVESTIGATED INTENSELY TO FIND OUT WHERE IN THE ORB THE TRIBES THAT NEVER HEARD THE GOSPEL BEFORE COULD BE FOUND. AS THEY NOTICED THAT SEVERAL TRIBES (AROUND TWENTY) WHERE SITUATED IN THE AMAZONAS, WE SET UP A GOAL OF DOING AN APOSTOLIC RAID THERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. BY GOD’S GRACE, IN 2019, THE OGP WAS REACHED OUT BY THE MATIZALES SACRED TABERNACLE APOSTOLIC GROUP, ORIGINALLY FROM COLOMBIA, WHO GOT ASSOCIATED WITH THE OGP ON THIS JUNGLE MISSIONAL PROJECT. DURING THAT YEAR, DIFFERENT WAYS OF REACHING OUT THE TRIBES OF THE MC LIST, WERE EXPLORED. IN 2020, THE OGP’S TEAM MEET UP WITH THE MSTAC AND PROGRESS WAS MADE ON THE PREPARATION OF THE PROJECT. WE DECIDED TO START WITH THE CARABAYO, TRIBE WHICH HAS NOT BEEN LOCALIZED YET NOR PHOTOGRAPHIC REGISTER EXISTS. CURRENTLY, THIS DEFIANT MISSION IS BEING PREPARED.

DUMKA

DUMKA

I.

THREE YEARS AGO, IN THE TIBETAN PLATEAU, THE OGP’S TEAM PREACHED THE CATHOLIC FAITH TO PURAN, A PROTESTANT PREACHER WHO CONVERTED HUNDREDS OF SOULS IN HIS NATIVE PLACE, DUMKA, IN INDIA. WE FOUND PURAN SUPERVISING A GROUP OF AROUND EIGHTY ADIVASIS WHO, IN OUR MISSIONAL ZONE, THEY BUILD UP ROADS, SURVIVING IN MISERABLE CAMPGROUNDS, STACKED, MISPRIZED AND UNDERPAID. HE BROUGHT MANY OF THEIR OWN TO OUR MISSIONAL CENTRE AND WE PREACHED TO THEM, WE BLESSED THEM AND THEY PARTICIPATED OF THE HOLY MASS SEVERAL TIMES. WE HAVE NOT SEEN PURAN IN A WHILE SINCE HE WENT BACK TO DUMKA A FEW MONTHS AGO. AS FAR AS WE CAN RECALL, THE LAST TIME WE HAVE SEEN HIM IT WAS IN THE TIBET BORDER WITH CHINA. THAT VERY SAME DAY, PURAN RECORDED A VIDEO MANIFESTING HIS STRONG WILL TO BECOME CATHOLIC AND HE SIGNED A DOCUMENT CONTAINING THAT SAME MESSAGE. AFTERWARDS, WE HAD NO NEWS OF HIM. WE FEARED HE HAD GOTTEN BACK TO PROTESTANTISM. BUT, A FEW DAYS AGO, SURPRISINGLY, FROM DUMKA, PURAN CAME WITH MANUEL (AND ADIVASI FRIEND OF HIM) TO VISIT ME. THEY SUFFERED A LONG JOURNEY WITH THE SOLE PURPOSE OF VISITING ME.

II.

AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVED I BECAME AWARE OF THE NEWS. WHEN WE WHERE IN THE VESTRY PREPARING THE HOLY MASS, I ASKED PURAN IF WE SHOULD COUNT A COMMUNION WAFER FOR HIM AND HE ASSENTED. WE WERE FULL OF JOY. WE CELEBRATED MASS ENLIVENED WITH LATIN HYMNS AND CATHOLIC SONGS IN THE SHANTALI LANGUAGE, WHICH IS THE LANGUAGE SPOKEN BY THE ADIVASI ETHNIC GROUP, TO WHICH PURAN AND MANUEL BELONG. BUT, WHY DID THEY TOOK SUCH A LONG JOURNEY TO VISIT US? IT WAS BECAUSE MANUEL NEEDED HELP. FURTHERMORE, WHO IS MANUEL? LET ME INTRODUCE HIM IN A COUPLE OF LINES.

III.

MANUEL MURMU IS 24 YEARS OLD AND WHEN WE HAS 19, AFTER OF GOING BACK AND FORTH OF THE SEMINARY DUE TO HEALTH REASONS, HE FOUNDED TWO CATHOLIC SCHOOLS (WITH ACCOMMODATION) IN DUMKA. IT IS A MASSIVE APOSTOLATE SINCE BETWEEN THE TWO SCHOOLS (ST. PETER AND EMMANUEL) THEY SUM UP SEVEN HUNDRED STUDENTS, FROM WHICH HALF OF THEM ARE DIRMI PUJA, WHICH MEANS THEY ARE TREES AND STONES WORSHIPERS. THEY DO NOT BELONG TO ANY “ORGANIZED” RELIGION (JUST LIKE BUDDHISM OR HINDUISM) THEY SIMPLY WORSHIP TREES AND STONES. THEY LIVE NOT JUST IN A MATERIAL BUT ALSO SPIRITUAL MISERY. THEIR BIGGEST PENURY IS SPIRITUAL, WHICH IS THE PHYTO-STONE IDOLATRY AND GOD’S IGNORANCE. BUT, AT THE SAME TIME, THEY ARE EXTREMELY POOR MATERIALLY SPEAKING. THEY LITERALLY GO OUT HUNTING RATS AND TOADS TO EAT AND THEY EVEN FIGHT OVER THIS, SINCE IT IS CONSIDERED AN APPETIZING FOOD.

IV.

AS WE WERE SAYING, MANUEL IS THE PRINCIPAL OF TWO SCHOOLS, WHICH HAS 700 VERY POOR STUDENTS. HE ASKED FOR HELP. THAT IS THE REASON WHY WE WENT THERE AND TO GIVE HIM ALL WHAT WE HAD: BLESSINGS AND CATECHISM, MASS AND SMILES. BUT THEY ALSO NEED FOOD AND CLOTHING. SOMETIMES THAT EAT JUST ONE MEAL A DAY BECAUSE THE RICE IS NOT ENOUGH. THEY KIDS ARE EXTREMELY SKINNY. THEY DO NOT EAT MEAT, BUT NOT BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE VEGAN AND TRENDY, BUT BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO OTHER MEAT THAN THE RATS AND THE TOADS. BUT MANUEL BANNED EATING RATS IN THE SCHOOL. WHEN THE OGP’S PRIESTS GO DOWN TO VISIT THEM, THEY CELEBRATE MASS, THEY PREACH AND THEY TEACH THEM THE SACRED CATECHISM. THEY PARTICIPATE WITH FASCINATION. THEY ARE EXTREMELY HAPPY ABOUT LEARNING THE MASS IN LATIN. MANUEL IS BEGGING US TO BUILD UP A CHAPEL. THE LAND IS ENORMOUS. IF THE PERIPHERIES EXIST, THIS IS THE PERIPHERY PAR EXCELLENCE. ABOVE ALL, BECAUSE THE TRUE GOD DOES IS NOT KNOWN HERE. THE EPISCOPAL VICAR DECIDED TO TURN THE SCHOOL CHAPEL INTO A PARISH. THE OGP ACCEPTED THE CHALLENGE. WE SEEK TO PLANT THE PARISH AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THE EPISCOPAL VICAR ASKED US, IN RETURN, TO HELP ANOTHER PARISH, WHERE THERE ARE MULTITUDES OF SOULS WHO STILL ADORE STONES AND TREES. THE OGP MISSIONARY TEAM, IN RETURN, MADE AN EXPEDITION TO THE MOUNTAINOUS AND IMPOVERISHED AREA OF THE PARIAH TRIBE, WHICH HAS LONG PROFESSED PROTESTANTISM. IN A VILLAGE, THE PARIAH TRIBE ASKED THE OGP TEAM TO SETTLE A SCHOOL, WHICH IS ANOTHER OBJECTIVE THAT WE SEEK TO ACHIEVE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, TO THE EXTENT THAT GOD SENDS US MORE VOLUNTEERS AND DONATIONS.

INDOCHINA

MISSION ORIGIN

IN 2018, THE OGP FOUNDED THE MC (MISSION COUNTDOWN). THE OGP’S TEAM INVESTIGATED INTENSELY TO FIND OUT IN WHICH PLACES OF THE ORB WERE THE TRIBES THAT HAVEN’T LISTENED YET THE GOSPEL. AS WE NOTICE THAT SEVERAL TRIBES (AROUND TWENTY) WHERE LOCATED IN INDOCHINA, WE TOOK OFF FROM THE HIMALAYAS TO THERE, TO FIND THOSE PEOPLE TO PREACH THE GOOD NEW. SO FAR, THREE APOSTOLIC RAIDS HAD TAKEN PLACE AND THANKS TO GOD THE FRUITS WERE MANY.

FIRST APOSTOLIC RAID: SHAMANS’S MISSION

STEPHEN, A VETERAN FRENCH OGP VOLUNTEER, DEPARTED TO INDOCHINA WITH ONE OF THE OGP’S PRIESTS. THEY SPENT JUST A COUPLE OF DAYS IN SOME CENTRIC CITY, WHICH SERVED THEM TO GET TO KNOW THE PLACE AND THEY SPOKE WITH A CLERGYMAN, WHO TOLD THEM THAT THE OGP’S MISSION IN THOSE LANDS WAS DANGEROUS, NON-VIABLE AND IMPOSSIBLE. FOR THE OGP THIS WAS A GREAT START AND A SIGN THAT GOD IS GOING TO DO BIG THINGS IN THAT MISSION, SINCE NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM, AND HE GETS JOYFUL IN DOING BIG THINGS TOWARDS SOULS SALVATION. THE CLERGYMAN GAVE THEM SOME BLEARY REFERENCES ABOUT THE CHURCH’S RESPONSIBLE IN THE AREA IN THE ZONES OF THE TRIBES OF WHICH WE HAD PLANNED TO VISIT. AFTER A RISKY OPERATION WE REACHED HIM OUT. HE GAVE US HIS BLESSING FOR THE MISSION AND WE DEPARTED TO OUR FIRST OBJECTIVE: PREACHING TO SHAMANS OF THE MOST REMOTES TRIBES.

A.- TCHAO TRIBE

WE FIRST PREACHED TO THE TCHAO TRIBE. THIS EXPEDITION WAS EXTREME. OUR GUIDE GOT SCARED SINCE HE FEARED GETTING IN TROUBLE AND HE FORCED US TO ABORT THE MISSION. WE CELEBRATED MASS WITH THE SHAMAN, THE CHIEF AND PEOPLE FROM THE VILLAGE. AFTER THAT, WE DID A SECOND EXPEDITION WITHOUT THE GUIDE, WHICH WAS VERY SPECIAL. THE OGP IS PLANNING ON DOING A NEW EXPEDITION TO THAT TRIBE ONCE THE QUARANTINE IS OVER.

B.- TRIBU ALLU

AFTER THE TCHAOS, WE DID THE FIRST EXPEDITION TO THE ALLU TRIBE. WE WENT TO THE TAPERZU’S VILLAGE. THEY WERE VERY WELCOMING WITH US. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY THAT FOREIGNERS WERE SPEAKING WITH NATIVES TO THAT VILLAGE. THE SECOND EXPEDITION TO THE ALLU IT WAS VERY PROLIFIC. WE SLEPT OVER AT ONE OF THE FAMILY’S PLACE. THAT VILLAGE HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD JESUS’S NAME. WE PREACHED JESUS FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. WE CELEBRATED MASS IN A HOUSE. WE HANDED OUT MEDALS AND WE INVITED SOULS TO BAPTIZE. EVERYONE WHO HEARD THE PREACHING ACCEPTED TO GET BAPTIZED, WHICH ARE GOING TO RECEIVE ONCE QUARANTINE IS OVER.

SECOND APOSTOLIC RAID: MOTO-MISSION

THE CHALLENGES PRESENTED BY THE REMOTENESS, THE NONEXISTENCE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT AND THE TERRAIN DIFFICULTY, FORCED US TO LEARN HOW TO RIDE MOTORCYCLES. WE TOOK UP ON SOME DRIVING CLASSES IN THE MOUNTAINS, WE BOUGHT TWO USED BIKES AND WITHIN A COUPLE OF DAYS WE FOUND OURSELVES GOING UP AND DOWN THE SLOPES, DOING ENDLESS ZIGZAGS ENJOYING OF BREATHTAKING LANDSCAPES UNTIL WE REACHED THE TAPERZU VILLAGE OF OUR BELOVED ALLU. WE RENTED OUT A HOUSE FOR A YEAR IN THE BORDER OF THE ÑO-U VILLAGE, WHERE THERE ARE NO FOREIGNERS WITHIN A RADIUS OF HUNDREDS OF KILOMETRES. THAT IS OUR MISSIONAL BASE. THAT IS WHERE WE SET UP OUR CHURCH. THANKS TO GOD, THE THIRD APOSTOLIC RAID IN INDOCHINA WAS ALSO VERY PROLIFIC. WE ANNOUNCED THE GOOD NEWS TO TWO FAMILIES OF THE AKAKE TRIBE. THEY ACCEPTED THE PREACHING AND THE INVITATION TO BAPTISM, THAT WE WILL ADMINISTER ONCE THE QUARANTINE IS OVER. AT THE SAME TIME, WE CONCENTRATE ON THE TRAINING OF THE YOUTH OF THE ALLU TRIBE, WHICH MEANS THE PREPARATION FOR THEIR BAPTISM. WE BECAME FRIENDS OF THEM AND NEXT TIME WE GO THERE WE WILL BAPTIZE THEM.

THIRD APOSTOLIC RAID

IN 2019 IT ALSO TOOK PLACE THE THIRD APOSTOLIC RAID IN INDOCHINA, THAT WAS VERY PROLIFIC AND IT MAINLY HAD AN EXPLORATORY PROFILE.

NORTH POLE

NORTH POLE

THE NORTH POLE, IS DEFINED AS THE POINT IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE WHERE THE EARTH’S AXIS OF ROTATION MEETS ITS SURFACE. WHILE THE SOUTH POLE LIES ON A CONTINENTAL LAND MASS, THE NORTH POLE IS LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ARCTIC OCEAN AMID WATERS THAT ARE ALMOST PERMANENTLY COVERED WITH CONSTANTLY SHIFTING SEA ICE. THE SEA DEPTH AT THE NORTH POLE HAS BEEN MEASURED AT 4,261 M (13,980 FT) BY THE RUSSIAN MIR SUBMERSIBLE IN 2007. THE NEAREST LAND IS USUALLY SAID TO BE KAFFEKLUBBEN ISLAND, OFF THE NORTHERN COAST OF GREENLAND ABOUT 700 KM (430 MI) AWAY. THE NEAREST PERMANENTLY INHABITED PLACE IS ALERT IN THE QIKIQTAALUK REGION, NUNAVUT, CANADA, WHICH IS LOCATED 817 KM (508 MI) FROM THE POLE. DURING AN ENCOUNTER IN ROME WITH A FRIEND FROM HONG-KONG, WE DEVISE AND ORGANIZED THE OGP’S POLAR MISSION UNDER THE NAME OF NORTHERN CROSS PROJECT, WHICH ORIGINALLY AIMS TO PLANT THE HOLY CROSS AND AN IMAGE OF OUR LADY IN THE NORTHERNMOST PERMANENTLY INHABITED HUMAN SETTLEMENT OF THE GLOBE (NOT COUNTING MILITARY BASES OR SCIENTIFIC STATIONS). IN 2019, THE FIRST APOSTOLIC EXPEDITION OF THE OGP DEPARTED TO THE NORTH POLE TOWARDS A VILLAGE LOCATED AT 78º LATITUDE. THE MISSIONAL TEAM WAS INTEGRATED BY TWO ARGENTINE PRIESTS, ONE OF THEM TRAVELED FROM THE HIMALAYAS AND THE OTHER ONE FROM FRANCE. THANKS TO GOD, THE OPERATION WAS VERY PROLIFIC. FOR OUR SURPRISE, THE MISSIONAL TEAM FOUND A PHILIPPINE COMMUNITY WITH PERMANENT RESIDENCE IN THIS REMOTELY AND GELID CONFINES. THAT COMMUNITY, COMPOSED BY EIGHTY SOULS, PROFESS THE CATHOLIC FAITH. DUE TO THIS HAPPY DISCOVERY, THE OGP DECIDED THAT IT SHOULD BE THAT VERY SAME PHILIPPINE COMMUNITY WHO ROOT UP THE CROSS AND OUR LADY’S IMAGE AND WHO PREPARE THAT FOUNDATION WITH TWO MONTHS OF COMMUNITY PRAYING, IN THAT AREA WHERE THERE IS NEITHER A PRIEST NOR A CHAPEL. SEVERAL MASSES WERE CELEBRATED WITH MANY FILIPINOS FAITHFUL ATTENDERS , WHO WERE HAPPY TO ADORE GOD AND LISTEN HIS WORD. CONFESSIONS WERE HEARD AND HOUSES WERE BLESSED. A YOUNG RUSSIAN MAN WHO WAS ATHEIST PARTICIPATED IN THE MASS AND HE GOT CONVERTED TO THE REAL GOD. THANKS GOD, THE OGP FOUNDED A GROUP OF THE MOST HOLY ROSARY PRAYING THAT LASTED FOR A WHILE. WE GAVE OUT ROSARIES, BIBLES AND SACRED IMAGES, AND EVERY SINCE THEN THE FAMILIES AUGMENTED THEIR INTENSITY AND FREQUENCY TO THEIR… THE OGP AIMS TO BUILD UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE A CHAPEL IN THAT VILLAGE, THAT AS FAR AS WE KNOW, IT WILL BE THE MOST SEPTENTRIONAL CHAPEL IN THE ORB. CURRENTLY, WORK HAS BEGUN SO THAT THE PHILIPPINE COMMUNITY OF THAT VILLAGE JOINS THE WWR (WORLD WIDE ROSARY) THAT IS BEING PRAYED WEEKLY BY ZOOM WITH PARTICIPANTS OF ALL CONTINENTS.
