This year’s groups of novices are originally from different part of the world. Counting Africa, France, Mexico, Haiti, Netherlands, England and even Texas and New York. Nevertheless we enjoy embracing each other’s cultures. There's an old African proverb that says "If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." KEEPS US IN YOUR PRAYERS
