Taize gathers youth in Nairobi, Kenya - Nov 26-30

From Dar-es-Salaam to Nairobi

I am a Tanzanian aged 25 years old. I am from Dar es Salaam, and I am a laboratory technician by profession. I was in Taizé, France during the summer months of 2006. Currently I am on my annual leave so I decided to spend some days as a volunteer, to help with the preparation of the meeting in Nairobi....

The way I see the preparation for the November meeting is that things are moving at quite a good pace. It seems to be well organised.

This meeting will be a golden opportunity for the youth to discover themselves and spend quality time for their spiritual life and growth in the Church and stop, listen and reflect to what our rapid changing societies are offering us today.

On a very personal note, I thank God for giving us this opportunity to be part of this pilgrimage of trust in East Africa and Africa as a Continent. It will be a time for us to discover and learn something from other youth coming from several African countries.

And for the youth coming from outside Africa it will be a memorable time to know more about our peoples, lives, culture and give Africa a new face. ...

Keep the spirit high up

"Kwa pamoja tutafuta njia ya matumaini"
Together seeking paths of Hope.

Karibuni Sana!!
Kwenye mkutano wa vijana tarehe 26-30 Novemba 2008.

Makolo Christopher Ludosha.

To Nairobi from South Africa:

God of peace, your presence is often a mystery for us; to welcome you we need a heart that is simple, and filled with trust.
