For those of you who had the pleasure of meeting Fr. Emmanuel Luhumbu this past summer (or the summer of 2015) I thought you would enjoy seeing what he has been up to…as Fr. will be staying with us again this summer while he participates in the 2017 Missions Appeal at a few parishes in Missouri. Fr. Emmanuel serves the Diocese of Kole which is located in the DR of Congo. They are in the midst of building their Rectory; he was kind enough to send me some photos of their progress. Because of assistance from two American friends, they were able to put a ceiling in the Rectory. They are still in need of doors and windows which must be made by their local carpenters; there is a need for wood, nails, and other accessories. One door costs $65 while one window costs $45; their building has 30 doors and 22 windows.
